A Few Favorite Book Quotes: Part 1

Top Ten Tuesday(82)

Hello fellow book lovers!

I was noticing how very little I ever talk about book quotes on my blog and decided to start doing a series of posts all about them. Pretty straightforward stuff. So today I will be bringing you part 1 of a few of my favorite book quotes!

These are all from some of my most loved books and with some I have included multiple quotes. Especially with “Red Rising”…..I honestly could quote the entire book with that one.

Every Heart A Doorway by Seanan McGuire

“You’re nobody’s doorway but your own, and the only one who gets to tell you how your story ends is you.”


Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff

(****These quotes are in all caps because they are spoken this way by a character in the book****)

“DYING IS EASY. ANYONE CAN THROW THEMSELVES ONTO THE PYRE AND REST A HAPPY MARTYR. ENDURING THE SUFFERING THAT COMES WITH SACRIFICE IS THE REAL TEST.”

“WHEN IT IS DONE, WE WILL FLY FAR FROM HERE. FAR FROM THIS SCAB AND ITS POISONED SKY. WE WILL DANCE IN THE STORMS, YOU AND I.”


The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas

“There are worse things in this world than monsters, and somehow, they always manage to find me.”

(This next one is just because I found it hilarious pertaining to how hot the temperature is….)

“..even though it feels like I’m cocooned in the folds of Satan’s ball sack every night.”


Vicious by V.E. Schwab

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

“I want to believe that there’s more. That we could be more. Hell, we could be heroes.”


The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

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


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.”


An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

“The field of battle is my temple. The swordpoint is my priest. The dance of death is my prayer. The killing blow is my release.”

“Life is made of so many moments that mean nothing. Then one day, a single moment comes along to define every second that comes after. Such moments are tests of courage, of strength.”


The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

“Sometimes you can do everything right and things will still go wrong. The key is to never stop doing right.”


Red Rising by Pierce Brown

“I would have lived in peace. But my enemies brought me war.”

“Man cannot be freed by the same injustice that enslaved it.”

“I am the Reaper and death is my shadow.”

” ‘I live for the dream that my children will be born free. That they will be what they like. That they will own the land their father gave them.’
‘I live for you.’
‘Then you must live for more.’ ‘”


The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

“Life takes us to unexpected places sometimes. The future is never set in stone, remember that.”

“The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.”

    That was a great quotes. I mostly like quotes from non-fiction books, poetry books and a memoir.

      Thank you! I usually don’t read much of non-fiction, poetry, or memoirs but I’m sure they are just as quotable! Especially poetry! πŸ™‚
