Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is Top Ten Quotes I Loved From Books I Read In The Past Year Or So.
Now, I’ve participated in the 3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge twice this year, so I’m going to try not to use the same quotes. I might pick others from the same books, but I want this to be fresh and new for my readers. Here we go!
“I don’t want to say that I feel complete when I’m with him— because I’m complete without him— but when I’m with him I feel like a better version of myself.”
“I’m not going to drown in what I can’t change.”
“Just when you think you know someone, they change. Or you change. Or maybe you both change. And that changes everything.”
“Bendy straws are the shit, dude.”
“Some mistakes… Just have greater consequences than others. But you don’t have to let the result of one mistake be the thing that defines you.”
“No matter how many words we get, there’s always going to be the last one, and one word is never enough.”
“I love you so much.” His voice is breathless and full of fear. “I’ll love you forever. Even when I can’t.” My tears fall harder at his words. “And I’ll love you forever. Even when I shouldn’t.”
“If you can’t stop thinking about someone’s update, that’s called “status cling.”
“I’m terrified to lose him for good, so I sell myself short and take what I can from him, even though I know I deserve better.”
“I realized that people’s reactions had more to do with them, more to do with who they were, than anything about me.”
BONUS Quote! (Because if you’re reading this, I’m 99.9% sure you’re a reader and will appreciate this one.)
“Reading is an escape from the outside world. Everyone needs a little of that to keep their sanity.”
I loved, loved, loved this theme. I felt like I could have gone on and on forever! But then it wouldn’t have been a Top Ten list and I already gave you a bonus quote. Honestly, I was tempted to just do 10 quotes from November 9 and called it good. Lol. I love that book.
So, which of these quotes was your favorite? Has any of them made you want to read one of these books?
