Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week, she posts an idea relating to books and encourages other book bloggers to respond with their own top ten lists.
This week’s topic is “top ten favourite book quotes.” I have a lot of favourite book quotes, but here are ten of the ones that I think of the most:
“‘Love and loss,’ he said, ‘are like a ship and the sea. They rise together. The more we love, the more we have to lose. But the only way to avoid loss is to avoid love. And what a sad world that would be.”
– V.E. Schwab, A Conjuring of Light
“Wishes are false. Hope is true. Hope makes its own magic.”
– Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone
“Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.”
– Lemony Snicket, Horseradish
“We are all stardust and stories.”
– Erin Morgenstern, The Starless Sea
“Libraries were full of ideas—perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.“
– Sarah J. Maas, Throne of Glass
“There are no safe choices. Only other choices.”
– Libba Bray, A Great and Terrible Beauty
“You cannot change what you are, only what you do.”
– Philip Pullman, The Golden Compass
“Even in its first faint traces, love could alter a landscape. It wrote unimagined stories and made the most beautiful, forbidding places.”
– Anna-Marie McLemore, Wild Beauty
“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
– Neil Gaiman, Coraline
“Everything I have done, every change I have made to that circus, every impossible feat and astounding sight, I have done for her.“
– Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus
“The heart is an arrow. It demands aim to land true.”
Leigh Bardugo, Six of Crows

That Lemony Snicket quote made me giggle.

All of the quotes in Horseradish are so much fun!
I had that Coraline one on my list this week too. I love that ACOL one, the whole Shade of Magic trilogy is one of my favourite series. I actually have an art print of that Throne of Glass one on my wall, my friend got it for me as a graduation gift!

I like the V.E. Schwab and the Sarah J. Maas quotes. All of these quotes, really, were perfect!

It’s one of my favourites, so I hope you enjoy it!
The Lemony Snicket quote makes me laugh every time!
That series had some of the best quotes – it was so hard for me to pick just one!
I adore that Lemony Snicket quote. Not because I don’t trust people who are without a stack of books, but because I’ve found people who do carry one with them to be the easiest to connect with. “Oh, what’re you reading?” Always a dangerous and wonderful conversation starter.
It’s the perfect ice-breaker, and it’s a great way to get new book recommendations!
