Top Ten Quotes I Loved From Books I Read in the Past Year

Top Ten Tuesdays is an original feature created by The Broke and The Bookish and you can find their page here

The Haunting of Maddy Clare
"I don't have an opinion about ghosts. It's people I don't believe in, I suppose."
The Contrary Tale of the Butterfly Girl (The Peculiar Adventures of John Loveheart, Esq. #2)
"He's glittery, sparkling candles on a birthday cake. He's only for special occasions."
Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)
"No mourners. No funerals."
Made You Up
“People say teenagers think they're immortal, and I agree with that. But I think there's a difference between thinking you're immortal and knowing you can survive. Thinking you're immortal leads to arrogance, thinking you deserve the best. Surviving means having the worst thrown at you and being able to continue on despite that. It means striving for what you want most, even when it seems our of your reach, even when everything is working against you.” 
I'll Meet You There
"It gave me hope: if you could make a beautiful piece of art from discarded newspapers and old matchbooks, then it meant that everything had potential. And maybe people were like collages—no matter how broken or useless we felt, we were an essential part of the whole. We mattered."
The Heartless City
"No concoction of chemicals can right the world's wrong. Evil and injustice can only be conquered by human action, by people strong and courageous enough to fight for what is right."
Lair of Dreams (The Diviners, #2)
"But dreams can't be contained for long. Their natural trajectory is forward. Out. Up. Away. Past all barriers and borders. Into the world. This is true of nightmares too."

An Ember in the Ashes (An Ember in the Ashes, #1) 
“You are an ember in the ashes, Elias Veturius. You will spark and burn, ravage and destroy. You cannot change it. You cannot stop it.”  
 “You are full, Laia. Full of life and dark and strength and spirit. You are in our dreams. You will burn, for you are an ember in the ashes.” 
The Wrath and the Dawn (The Wrath and the Dawn, #1)
“She was a dangerous, dangerous girl. A plague. A Mountain of Adamant who tore the iron from ships, sinking them to their watery graves without a second thought. With a mere smile and a wrinkle of her nose.” 
Carry On
“You have to pretend you get an endgame. You have to carry on like you will; otherwise, you can't carry on at all.”

    My Top Ten Tuesdays

    1. It took me forever to put these together! I started to really wish I'd kept a quote diary or something to make it easier!!

  3. There's a few books on here that I really want to read. I'm a few chapters into Six of Crows, but that's about it. Great picks!
