Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
I love this week’s topic! Bookish quotes are best and I’m so glad Goodreads has that awesome “quotes” function. Makes looking for them quite a lot easier! Compiling an actual “top ten” was pretty much impossible for me, though, because I think an amazing book is often just a compilation of some very good quotes. So, I just browsed through my shelves on Goodreads, looking for quotable books that I thought deserved a spot in this top ten. And here it is! As always, these are in no particular order.
There are some very inspiring moments in Fangirl, but this conversation was perhaps what hit me most when I read it. I have a tendency to just avoid situations I think might be painful or awkward, or whatever, but it is very true that that often just means you’re avoiding life.
Can we talk about the sheer genius of this statement? I mean, come on. This book is a piece of art and I love it to death.
This one’s more or less in the vein of the Fangirl quote. Joanne Harris’s books as so quotable as well — one of her finely crafted sentences just had to be in this list.
While I know a lot of people didn’t like Mrs Dalloway, I did enjoy it very much, and couldn’t agree more with both of these statements…
Quotes about books are the best quotes! The Shadow of the Wind is full of them. Which reminds me I still have to read the third book in this series…
I mean, how can I make a top ten of quotes without including John Green? The man is a quote-machine!
When I started making this list I knew immediately I had to include The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants because those books meant so much to me growing up. And this quote is painfully true.
This book is constantly on my mind since I’m writing my thesis about it, so it felt wrong not to include a quote from it. There are not a lot of books that’ve had me thinking as much as The New York Trilogy.
Ah, Throne of Glass, my new love! This is very, very true!
And, of course, I had to end with a classic…
Possibly my favourite quote of all time…
And that’s it! Are any of these quotes on your list, too? Or do you think I missed a very important one? Let me know!
