Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Book Quotes

Top Ten Tuesday(9)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jamie @ The Broke and the Bookish.

This week is a freebie so from all of the past Top Ten Tuesday themes I chose to do my favorite bookish quotes! Pretty straight forward….

“The Noise is a man unfiltered, and without a filter, a man is just chaos walking.”

9.) A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

“There is not always a good guy. Nor is there always a bad one. Most people are somewhere in between.”

8.) Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

“I would rather be numb than stand here in the light of a sun that can never chase the chill away.”

7.) Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

“Have you ever asked yourself, do monsters make war, or does war make monsters?”

6.) And I Darken by Kiersten White

“As the baby latched on with surprising fierceness, the nurse offered her own prayer.
Let her be strong.
Let her be sly.
And Let her be ugly.”

(I feel like this sums up Lada’s character perfectly)

5.) Night Film by Marisha Pessl

“Mortal fear is as crucial a thing to our lives as love. It cuts to the core of our eing and shows us what we are. Will you step back and cover your eyes? Or will you have the strength to walk the precipice and look out?”

(This quote, for me, really describes the book perfectly)

4.) Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

“The books we love, they love us back, And just as we mark our places in the pages, those pages leave their marks on us. I can see it in you, sure as I see it in me. You’re a daughter of words. A girl with a story to tell.”

3.) Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff

(This is in all caps because the quote was by Buruu, the arashitora, and his inner dialogue is in all caps naturally)

2.) A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

“I’d rather die on an adventure than live standing still.”

1.) Vicious by V.E. Schwab

Image result for vicious by v.e. schwab

“Plenty of humans were monstrous, and plenty of monsters knew how to play at being human.”

(My all time favorite quote ever, I don’t even know why. I just love it.)

    These are all great quotes, but I especially love the one from Daughter of Smoke & Bone! And the one from Night Film reminds me of just how much I want to read that book… I really should get on that!

    Great list! 🙂

    These are all amazing quotes Heather, and this was a brilliant pick for the Top Ten Tuesday freebie as well! You’ve included quotes from some of my favourite books as well; The Knife of Never Letting Go, Illuminae, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, along with anything V.E. Schwab has written! 😀
    I agree with how the quote from And I Darken perfectly sums up Lada’s character. My favourite though is probably the quote from A Darker Shade of Magic, it’s my favourite from that series and my favourite overall I think. 🙂

      Thanks Beth!
      VE Schwab definitely has some of my favorite quotes, when I read those I sit and make notes all through out!
      I really love that ADSOM quote but the one from Vicious is probably my all time favorite! 🙂

    I absolutely love that quote from ADSOM. I have a sticker with that quote that I got from OwlCrate but I’m too indecisive to stick it somewhere. I have commitment issues when it comes to stickers, hahaha.

      It definitely is a great quote, I like pretty much everything from Schwab (I highlight so many quotes with her books)!
      Also thank you so much for this comment it made me laugh so much, I definitely agree with you about stickers they require commitment and I have problems with deciding where I want to stick them as well! 🙂

        Hahaha glad I could make you laugh 😉 I’m always so nervous I’ll stick them somewhere and then think of a better place to put it, haha.

      Thanks Reg! I agree I thought that quote just explained Lada’s character so well, if someone asked me I’d just say here, haha!
      And I had a hard time narrowing down my favorite quotes from ADSOM and Vicious because she definitely has so many great quotes! 😁


  5. Anna @MyBookishDream January 24, 2017 / 10:32 pm

    Wow. Those are all amazing quotes! I have to agree with you on the Vicious quote – it’s definitely my all time favourite as well. 🙂
