Top Ten Quotes I Loved From Books I Read In The Past Year Or So


This is a Top Ten Tuesday post which originated at The Broke and the Bookish. For more topics/information about how to participate, please click here.

I often highlight my favorite quotes in the book I’m reading (yes, I —gasp— highlight —gasp— on my books. That’s how I show my love for the book #iregretnothing) and getting to share some of them with you guys made me so happy and excited!! I have so many more but, sometimes, the quote only makes sense in the context of said book and if I wrote it here, you won’t really get it so I had to reign my enthusiasm a bit lol

So here are some of my favorite quotes from books I read in 2015.

The Celestial Globe by Marie Rutkoski

“So often,” Jackaby said,”people think that when we arrive at a crossroad, we can choose only one path, but —as I have often and articulately postulated— people are stupid. We’re not walking the path. We are the path. We are all the roads and all the intersections. Of course we can choose both.”

Q: Did any of these quotes strike you straight in the heart? Which ones? 

My favorite is the one from The Cabinet of Wonders. It still resonates in me no matter how many times I read it.

Q: Would you consider reading the books that these quotes came from?
