Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday. Today is a topic that I’ve been wanting to do for a while now, and that is… quotes!

I’ve always loved quotes. When I was younger I kept a little quote book where I wrote down all the quotes that meant something to me. That could be anything from lyrics to movie or tv quotes, to book quotes. It could be inspirational, moving, relatable or funny. Just, beautiful words put together to make beautiful quotes.

So that’s the post for today. Quotes. Of course these are not all of them, because I could never choose just ten favorites. So these are just a completely random selection of ten bookish quotes I love. Who knows, maybe I could make this into a more regular feature. Anyway, enjoy!

Top Ten Tuesday

Well… not only is this a lovely inspirational quote, but it’s also a quote by my all-time favorite fictional character: Samwise Gamgee. I love him so much, he can talk about potatoes and I would be there, hanging on every word and buying picture frames to hang his quotes in.


Top Ten Tuesday

I love how, even though nighttime and darkness are often used in imagery as something negative, something to be feared (ex: creatures of the night, keeping someone in the dark, dark times…), this quote gives us a whole other way of looking at it.


Top Ten Tuesday

Honestly, I think I could quote practically every chapter from The Raven Cycle. It is just that beautifully written. But this quote has stuck with me because it so beautifully describes the relationship between Blue and her Raven Boys. Who wouldn’t want a friendship like theirs?


Top Ten Tuesday

*SWOON* I love this quote because I ship the two characters here so, so much. But it also just beautifully covers their relationship. The loyalty, the dedication, the inspiration <3


Top Ten Tuesday

The writing style of Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me trilogy is pretty hit or miss, but for me it was a pretty big hit. This quote especially has always stuck with me.


Top Ten Tuesday

Well, it is one of my favorite series and I must admit I’ve been thinking about having ‘Rattle The Stars’ as a tattoo someday.


Top Ten Tuesday

I read More Happy Than Not last year and I can’t remember the last time a book made me cry this much. It was brutal, honest and raw and made me fall in love with Adam Silvera’s writing style. This quote especially hit me hard.


Top Ten Tuesday

As an anxious fangirl myself, I related to this book quite a lot. Especially this quote made me think and reflect on my view on fictional worlds versus the real one.


Top Ten Tuesday

Another book that could be quoted from beginning to end, but I chose this quote because I relate to it so much. Both in writing or in talking, words can be either beautiful or brutal and in the end all we can do is hope we made them right.


Top Ten Tuesday

This entire trilogy is so gorgeously written, but this quote on happiness is at the top for me. I believe it’s one of the best descriptions of happiness I’ve ever read.
