TTT– You can quote me on that

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This weeks topic is one dear to my heart:

Favorite Book Quotes


Personally, I love when a sentence in a book speaks to me. I use the highlight function in my kindle a lot and I always include the best quotes on my reviews. For physical books I like to use post-it to remind myself where the quotes are. Either way I have quite a few favorite ones so picking just 10 will be a challenge.

 9781492623168-300rgb1. LABYRINTH LOST by Zoraida Córdova

“Right now, I’m just a girl, and there is also magic in that.”

 249749962. DEAR MARTIN by Nic Stone

“You ever consider that maybe you not supposed to ‘fit’? People who make history rarely do.”


.222997633. CROOKED KINGDOM by Leigh Bardugo

“Maybe there were people who lived those lives. Maybe this girl was one of them. But what about the rest of us? What about the nobodies and the nothings, the invisible girls? We learn to hold our heads as if we wear crowns. We learn to wring magic from the ordinary. That was how you survived when you weren’t chosen, when there was no royal blood in your veins. When the world owed you nothing, you demanded something of it anyway.”

111272954. THE WISE MAN’S FEAR by Patrick Rothfuss

“It’s the questions we can’t answer that teach us the most. They teach us how to think. If you give a man an answer, all he gains is a little fact. But give him a question and he’ll look for his own answers.”

 hateugive_10-10snap15. THE HATE U GIVE by Angie Thomas

“Brave doesn’t mean you’re not scared. It means you go on even though you’re scared.” 


“Alice asked the Cheshire cat, who was sitting in a tree, “What road do I take?”
The cat asked, “Where do you want to go?”
“I don’t know”, Alice answered
“Then,” said the cat, “it really doesn’t matter, does it?”

 219798327. THE GIRL FROM EVERYWHERE by Heidi Heilig

“Sometimes a person has to let go of something to take hold of something else.”

186877058. THE RETURN OF THE KING by JRR Tolkien

“I know. It’s all wrong. By rights we shouldn’t even be here. But we are. It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.”

1134369. ERAGON by Christopher Paolini

“Books are my friends, my companions. They make me laugh and cry and find meaning in life.”

1906310. THE BOOK THIEF by Markus Zusak

“I wanted to tell the book thief many things, about beauty and brutality. But what could I tell her about those things that she didn’t already know? I wanted to explain that I am constantly overestimating and underestimating the human race-that rarely do I ever simply estimate it. I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant.”
