Hi everybody and welcome to a new Quote It Wednesday!

Though the quote above is quite dark, I have to say I love the imagery of it. And even though I am a generally happy person, I do understand and relate to having days where there’s a hollow place inside of you. Though a little dark, I think most people have moments where we really relate to this.

It also perfectly showcases the gorgeous writing in The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo: whimsical, yet dark.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS QUOTE? Do you love it or is it a bit too dark?

Hi everybody and welcome to a new Quote It Wednesday!

I love this quote because 1) DRAGON! and 2) I think the meaning behind it is so true and something we all need to remember sometimes. And really, aren’t the best villains the ones who have a reasoning we might even understand? Standard mustache-twirling villains who just want to be evil are boring. Give me all the morally grey characters!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS QUOTE?
Do you agree With it? And how do you love your villains?

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green {Quote It Wednesday}

Hi everybody and welcome to a new Quote It Wednesday!

Today’s quote is one of my all-time favorite quotes. Not only does it have such beautiful imagery, but I also really relate to it as I often feel like I have so many thoughts, but I’m not able to get them together to form a coherent idea or to convey to someone else, or even myself, exactly what I am thinking. This is apparently a normal trait for an INFJ (aka me), but perhaps many people also feel the same.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS QUOTE?
Do you also sometimes have trouble putting your thoughts together?

The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice and Virtue {Quote It Wednesday}

The Gentleman's Guide To Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

Hi everybody and welcome to a new Quote It Wednesday!

Today’s quote is one of the more serious quotes in an otherwise pretty funny book, but I love it regardless. I didn’t know about this Japanese practice before, but when I read this I looked it up and it is seriously beautiful, just as the message it symbolizes.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS QUOTE?
Do you love it as much as I do?

Hi everybody and welcome to a new Quote It Wednesday!

One of my favorite duologies of all time is the Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo. It’s a story about six outcasts coming together to pull off an impossible heist. You perhaps wouldn’t expect this lovely quote about love and who earns your heart from such a book, but it only shows the gloriousness that is Six of Crows.

I for one totally agree with this quote as I think getting to know someone, getting to know the real them, is so much more important in a relationship than any kind of material thing.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS QUOTE?
Do you love it as much as I do?

Hi everybody and welcome to a new Quote It Wednesday!

The above quote really explains my love for TWO things. Firstly, it explains the power of books and stories and secondly, it showcases the amazingness of the character of Samwise Gamgee. He’s just the best friend, he’s loyal, he’s kind and he always knows just what to say to make you carry on. And don’t we all need that sometimes?

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS QUOTE?
Do you agree with this quote on the power of stories?
And doesn’t it make you wish for your own samwise gamgee at your side?

Hi everybody and welcome to a new Quote It Wednesday!

Today’s quote is in honor of Pride Month and one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite LGBTQIA+ themed books: Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda.

I love this quote for the simple truth it holds. Why is straight the default? Why do we always assume everyone we meet is straight until proven otherwise? Why shouldn’t straight people have to come out too? Sexuality should indeed not just be assumed. There should not be a default.

Either way, I adore this book and you should definitely read it. And watch the movie. Because there is an awesome fantasy sequence where straight kids come out as straight to their parents and it is HILARIOUS. (you can even already see it in the trailer)

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS QUOTE?
Do you have any more lgbtqia+ books and quote suggestions for me?

Hi everybody and welcome to a new Quote It Wednesday!

Today’s quote is one of my all-time favorite motivational quotes. I don’t know why, but there is just something about the phrase ‘rattle the stars’ that gets me all fired up. Don’t just settle for reaching the stars. RATTLE the stars. I’m not gonna lie, I’ve even thought about getting this quote as a tattoo someday.

Plus I love the next sentence because really, don’t we all get a little scared of actually reaching our goals sometimes? I mean, yes failing is scary, but so is actually reaching our goals and getting everything we dreamed about. Because then what?

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS QUOTE? Does it motivate you? Are there any motivational bookish quotes you’ve ever thought about getting tattooed?

More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera {Quote It Wednesday}

Hi everybody and welcome to a new Quote It Wednesday!

Today I feature a quote from my first Adam Silvera, who has since become an auto-buy author for me and pretty much the only auto-buy author who is allowed to make me cry on a regular basis with his books.

More Happy Than Not especially hit me hard, because it really got me thinking about memories. I do actually treasure all of my memories, even the painful ones, because they made me who I am today. But sometimes, yes sometimes, I do find myself wondering if it wouldn’t be nice to be able to choose which memories you could just completely erase. Would you miss someone or something less hard if you didn’t remember them? Or would you just end up erasing all the good times, all the lessons learned along with the pain? If so, would it still be worth it?

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS QUOTE? If given the choice, would you consider erasing some of your memories forever? Or would you prefer to keep them all, even the painful ones?

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty {Quote It Wednesday}

Hi everybody! Today is the first installment of a new idea on my blog. Since I have a thing for quotes, I thought it would be nice to feature a random book quote each week.

Today I feature a quote from my recent read Big Little Lies, coming from my favorite character Madeline. I love this quote for its honesty and sassiness and because I think it just beautifully shows part of Madeline’s character. And though I may try to be forgiving and let go and all that, when it comes down to it, I do think I can hold a mean grudge just like Madeline…

What do you think of this quote? How are you with grudges?
Are you similar to Madeline or are you more forgiving?
