Thursday Quotables ~ Chasing Impossible by Katie McGarry

Hosted by BookshelfFantasies

It's time for Thursday Quotables

Thursday Quotables is all about sharing a favorite quote, line, or passage from your reading each week. You know it's a good read when you come across a bunch of memorable quotes!

This week's quote comes from Chasing Impossible by Katie McGarry. 

Chasing Impossible is the fifth book in Katie McGarry's Pushing the Limits series and focuses on the long-anticipated story of Abby and Logan. 

There were so many great quotes to choose from. But I managed to settle on a few quotes that I think truly showcase the novel: 

Quote #1: 'Abby steals my bottled water and keeps direct eye contact as she drinks more than half of it in several continuous gulps. When she finishes, she maintains that steady stare. “Remember when we were best friends in kindergarten and we got crazy and messy when we were locked in the art room because we hid under the desks because we didn’t want to do nap time?”
Abby has this devilish glint in her eye that has attracted me to her from the moment we met and that glint has a habit of brightening whenever she looks at me.  
I’m attracted to her, she’s attracted to me, but we have a habit of ignoring what’s brewing between us. But that’s all right. Life for us is a game, and we both love to play.'

Quote #2: 'Isaiah is slow dancing with his girl. Her head’s on his shoulder, his arms are wound tight around her waist. They look like they could die now and wouldn’t notice they had landed in heaven since they’re already there. That right there is love and it’s one in a million.  
I’m not foolish enough to believe I’ll find something like Isaiah and Rachel share, but I’m fine with that. Emotions are overrated.'

What did you think of these quotes? Have you read Chasing Impossible, or do you plan to? Let me know your thoughts below!


About the book

Tough and independent, 17-year-old Abby lets very few people into her inner circle. It’s common knowledge in her Kentucky town that she deals drugs, but not even her closest friends know why. 

But when a deal goes south and Abby’s suddenly in danger, she finds herself reluctantly forced to lean on daredevil Logan—a boy whose restless spirit matches her own.  

Logan has his own reasons for wanting to keep Abby at arms’ length. But he never expected to find in her the one person who might help him face the demons he’s tried so hard to run from.  

Together, Abby and Logan will have to make a decision: let their current circumstances weigh them down forever…or fight for the future they both thought was impossible.

Add it to your bookshelf!


  1. Great quotes! I am so excited for this one. (I've downloaded my copy but haven't started it yet.) We've waited a long time for Abby's story! That second quote... sad that she feels that way, but it's so Abby.

    1. Katie definitely gets Abby's character spot on in Chasing Impossible - I didn't think I could possibly love those characters more, but I do after reading this book!

  2. OMG I cannot wait to read that book! Eek! By the way, I've nominated you for the book fangirling award! See the details here:

  3. I can't believe I haven't read this book yet! D:
    I love these quotes and they make me really want to read this book like NOW!
