I’m a lover of the language –
Lines of short scenes from a book will sell that book to me faster than anything else, so I thought I’d share a few of my faves from 3 Sides to a Circle…
“I press on my cheekbones and run a finger over my chin. My face is all angles and perception and good sides, and lighting. Being a model has warped my view and I really don’t see my own face anymore—just imperfect pieces of a whole.” –Honor
“He smirks but is looking at me in that intimate way of his that curls my insides in something half delicious and half fear-inducing.” – Honor
“I roll over to face him, and we’re in this bubble of want and newness and perfection. Last night was about friendship with a few small kisses as he tried to help me drift off. This moment is going to be about how much we care about going slow before going all the way.” - Honor
“And now I’m trapped in a house with a shit headache, a manic pixie, and a horrified Honor.” – Toby
“Libby makes it feel like its Mount Everest. I close my eyes for a second and feel her. I want something, but I’m not sure what. I’m almost overwhelmed with possibility and fear. This girl, this moment, it doesn’t belong to me. It’s not mine to have yet.” – Toby
“She starts to walk away, but I grab her arm. I want to shake the mask from her face. I want to know what’s going on with us. I want to know we’re okay. Because it doesn’t feel like it, and I don’t have it in me not to have things with them okay right now. They’re my lifeline, the only thing even keeping me at school at this point.” - Toby

Summary from Goodreads:
Love is the ultimate rush.
Freshman year of college isn't easy. But with a friend like Libby Patterson, it is unforgettable.
Libby is honest and fearless and adorable. She's the girl on campus that everyone knows. The life of every party. Infectious and addictive, Libby captivates all those around her. Particularly her roommate Honor and their boy bestie Toby.
But three isn't always a magic number. And there's more to this trio than what everyone sees.
When Honor finds herself falling for an artist, and Libby doesn’t approve, and Toby finds himself watching Libby more than he should...the sides of their circle become strained.
The three are suddenly stretched between friendship, love and taking sides. They must fight to hold on to each other. But the tighter the hold, the harder it gets. Especially when Libby's unpredictability turns dangerous. Now it's up to Honor and Toby to save her from the downward spiral that could break their circle for good.
