Ten Favorite Book Quotes

A weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is… Favorite Book Quotes

Just so everyone knows, these are not my top ten favorite quotes. I have an awful memory and I have no idea at how I’d even start picking my all time top favorite quotes. These are just a few that I remembered and I’m positive I forgot some quotes that I really like.

Once upon a time, a girl had a father, a prince, a society of friends. Then they betrayed her, so she destroyed them all.

1 – The Rose Society by Marie Lu. I love Adelina so much. (Let’s not talk about book 3, okay? Okay.)

“Did you meet your soul mate? That always happens on the first day of school, right?”

“Oh God, Charlie, she’s letting you read again! You went straight to the paranormal section, didn’t you?”

2 – Made You Up by Francesca Zappia

“I can hear our hearts breaking.”

A tear wets my fingertips, his tears, and his other hand encases my face, the way mine does him. His lips nearly skim mine.

“I’ll shield your ears from the sound of heartbreak.”

3 – Fuel the Fire by Krista & Becca Ritchie. One of the best scenes they’ve ever written honestly.

Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love.

It did not end well.

4 – Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor

“What are you doing to me, you plague of a girl?” he whispered.

“If I’m a plague, then you should keep your distance, unless you plan on being destroyed.” The weapons still in her grasp, she shoved against his chest.

“No.” His hands dropped to her waist. “Destroy me.”

5 – The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

“While I’m gone,” Gansey said, pausing, “dream me the world. Something new for every night.”

6 – The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

We are a country built by immigrants, dreams, daring, and opportunity. We are a country built by the horrors of slavery and genocide, the injustice of racism and exclusion. These realities exist side by side. It is our past and our present. The future is unwritten. This is a book about ghosts. For we live in a haunted house.

7 – Before the Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray

Maybe it’s better to have gotten it right and been happy for one day instead of living a lifetime of wrongs.

8 – They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera. I am so bitter wow.

I will have you without armor, Kaz Brekker. Or I will not have you at all.

9 – Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. Fuck me up. I could have very easily picked all ten quotes from Six of Crows.

“Sometimes I think I like you,” Gus said. “And then you talk or breathe or exist and I’m not so sure.”

10 – How to Be a Normal Person by TJ Klune.

  1. I’m so bad at remembering quotes, too! But you picked some great ones! I really need to read They Both Die at the End even if I know it’s gonna hurt my soul. And I 100% agree that a top ten Six of Crows quote list would be completely valid.


  2. I really love Before the Devil Breaks You and They Both Die at the End, they’re both amazing books and you picked great quotes from them. I feel like all of Adam Silvera’s books are so quotable! I haven’t read Made You Up but that quote from it is so funny. 🙂


    1. There are a few from Made You Up that are really funny! I definitely recommend it if you like YA contemporary books. 😊 It was hard to pick just one quote from They Both Die. There are a lot that are really relatable.


    1. Aww I’m sorry it didn’t meet all your expectations! It’s the only book of his I’ve read but I’m trying History is All You Left Me later this month.


  3. I think this is a week for getting a glimpse into a whole bunch of books I’ve never read! All of these quotes are awesome 🙂 My blog mate would whole heartedly agree with you on the Kaz quote.

    My TTT.


    1. It’s in book 3 of the Diviners Series! I love it so much I try to get everyone to read those books. 😁


      1. It has diverse characters, it has a creepy plot, an atmospheric tone, it takes place in NYC during the 1920s. It’s such a good series!


    1. I was looking at my quotes for Six of Crows and it was almost impossible to pick just one 😭 and I think anyone who is a big fan of YA has seen that Daughter and Smoke quote 😂


  4. Nope, definitely won’t talk about The Midnight Star… I don’t want to be spoiled, haha.

    I really love that quote from Libba Bray – it really hits close to home, especially with how society is today (I won’t get into that, of course).


    1. Even though it takes places in the 20s there are so many themes that can be found in present day society which is a reason I loved it so much 😭 I personally didn’t like Midnight Star but I hope you do!!
