Posted November 17, 2015 in Reading / 8 Comments

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

He was scared of us, and that, more than anything else, made me scared of him.
His fear made him unpredictable.

Only love has the power to conquer them.

6. The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan

7. The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

Then there was the awkward moment that arrives when two thirds of the people in the room know that the other third is supposed to die in fewer that nine months, and the person who is meant to die is not one of the ones in the know.

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

  1. I’ve only read one of the books from your list! I do like a lot of these quotes though so will definitely be checking out the books they are attached to!
    I love that quote from The Sea of Monsters, really enjoy the Percy Jackson books. I also really like the one from Dream A Little Dream, I feel like I need that printing and putting on my bookshelf! I also really like the one from Beauty. It made me laugh.

    • I actually had the same thought about the Dream A Little Dream quote! I also had made a graphic that you are welcome to use. (It is a larger image when you open it in a new tab.)
