Top Ten Tuesday #116

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.
Top Ten Tuesday

This week is Top Ten
Favorite Book Quotes.

I love picking out quotes, highlighting passages that particularly resonate with me. So I had to spend a fair while going through my Goodreads quotes and my Kindle highlights to pick these out.

Can I have all of these as art prints or cushion covers or mugs now please?

It is said, in Imardin, that the wind has a soul, and that it wails through the narrow streets because it is grieved by what it finds there.

Love changes how you see everything. It blinds you, but in a good way.
Will Hill, After the Fire

The beauty of this world is fading all too fast through the cruelty and thoughtlessness of men.

But beauty can make people forgive a thousand cruelties.

She is alone.
And oh
how brilliantly she shines.
Nikita Gill, Wild Embers

“Oh, right," I snap. "And because he's spent enough money and inserted enough friendship tokens, the offer of sex and/or marriage should just fall out anytime now?”

Men like to talk about themselves and their achievements. Nona knew that much about men even if she was little.
Mark Lawrence, Red Sister

“She does not know how to feel safe.” As I said it I knew it was true. “We will have to teach her how.”

  1. I haven't read any of these, but you've picked out some nice quotes. I think I like the second one the best. Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  2. My friend keeps recommending Red Sister to me, but I was intimidated by how long it was - the quote you've chosen from it is brilliant, though! I also laughed out loud at the quote from The Exact Opposite of Okay: if I wasn't planning on starting it today, I definitely would have bumped it up my TBR thanks to your post.

    1. YES read it! Red Sister is long but I found I flew through it. Nona is one of the best written characters I've ever read.
