Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly link-up hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
So I haven’t participated in a while because of life getting in the way. This week I am making sure to have this post ready early and this week’s list is the Top Ten Quotes from Books I Read in the Past Year. While I don’t keep the best track of quotes, these are the best of the ones I have kept track of. They are listed in no particular order except the first one which had to be listed first for reasons.
1. Dream A Little Dream by Kerstin Gier
Home is where your books are.
2. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
This has been the most impossible, the most confusing afternoon of my life, she thought, yet I don’t feel confused or upset anymore; I only feel happy.
3. Beauty by Robin McKinley

4. Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

8. Becoming Darkness by Lindsay Francis Brambles
Words are only dangerous to those who fear the truth.
9. Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell

now that he had been my friend.
10. The Pharaoh’s Daughter by Mesu Andrews
