This week’s Top Ten Tuesday the girls at The Broke and the bookish asked us to come up with our favorite quotes from books that we’ve read within the last year or so.
“You could rattle the stars. You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down, you know it too. That’s what scares you most.” – Sarah J. Maas (Throne of Glass)
“The most powerful magic of all is choice.” – Sara Raasch (Snow Like Ashes)
“People come in and out of your life. For a time they are your world; they are everything. And then one day they’re not. There’s no telling how long you will have them near.” – Jenny Han (P.S. I Still Love You)
“Go with what your heart tells you or you will lose all.” – Rick Riordan (The Lightning Thief)
“Don’t feel bad for one moment about doing something that brings you joy” – Sarah J. Maas (A Court of Thorns and Roses)
“There was something severed and rough about her, something tainted and, yet, at the same time those jagged pieces were the makings of something fearsome. She’d wanted to become someone the Senate would fear, why not shatter the sky?”― Elise Kova (Fire Falling)
“It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be” -J.K.Rowling (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire)
“The fault is not in our stars”, I whispered to the ceiling, “But in ourselves. This was my choice” – Susan Dennard (Something Strange & Deadly)
“I think the purest of souls, those with the most fragile of hearts, must be meant for a short life. They can’t be tethered or held in your palm. Just like a sparrow, they light on your porch. Their song might be brief, not how greedy would we be to ask for more? No, you cannot keep a sparrow. You can only hope that as they fly away, they take a little bit of you with them” – Emm Cole (The Short Life of Sparrows)
“Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and can hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.” – Laini Taylor (Daughter of Smoke and Bone)
