Top Ten Quotes I Loved From Books I Read In The Past Year Or So.

Hi 🙂

I really don’t like the changes when creating a new blog post. It’s so annoying and the other one was so simple. Ugh. I’ve been pretty sick since Sunday night and it’s been the worst. I actually stayed home from work and that never happens. I’ve had this job for three years and I have only taken off one day out of three years of working there! I’m feeling slightly better, so that’s good. ANYWAY! Top Ten Tuesday time…

Here are the ten quotes from books that I read this past year that I love! This was not an easy post to do, because there are SO many quotes from books that I have loved so much!


Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
“He talked about the ocean between people. And how the whole point of everything is to find a shore worth swimming to.”

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
“Life is made of so many moments that mean nothing. Then one day, a single moment comes along to define every second that comes after.”

I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga
“This is why I forgive, but I don’t forget. When you forget someone, the forgiveness doesn’t mean anything anymore.”

After the End by Amy Plum
“Doubt everything at least once. What you decide to keep, you’ll be able to be confident of. And what you decide to ditch, you will replace with what your instincts tell you is true.” 

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
“Here’s what I think, I think maybe everybody falls. I think maybe we all do. And I don’t think that’s the asking. I think the asking is whether we get back up again.”


Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy
“I think you gotta be who you want to be until you feel like you are whoever it is you’re trying to become. Sometimes half of doing something is pretending that you can.”

Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey
“Life might be easier if you give in a little, but it’s better if you hold onto something so hard you can’t give it up.”

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
“Sometimes you do things for the right reasons and sometimes for the wrong ones and sometimes it’s impossible to tell the difference.”

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
“I do know enough to realize you cannot control the actions of others. You can only control what you do with yourself afterwards.”

Mosquitoland by David Arnold
“You spend your life roaming the hillsides, scouring the four corners of the earth, searching desperately for just one person to fucking get you. And I’m thinking, if you can find that, you’ve found home.”

What are some of your favorite quotes from books you read this year? Let me know and link me to your TTT posts! 🙂

I am going back to work today and it’s going to be super busy because I wasn’t there yesterday. I hope you have a great day! 😀

  1. I love your quotes, surprisingly I haven’t read any of these books haha! They all sound lovely and I really like your new blog graphics. Before I even read your posts I was all “Hey that’s new, and that’s new! So pretty!” 🙂

    • Glad you’re enjoying the Wrath and the Dawn! I wish I loved it as much as everyone else did. It was still a decent read for me though and lots of good quotes in there! 🙂

  2. These are all great choices Ashley!! I love The Knife of Never Letting Go one!! I really need to get to that book soon (dammit Amy just read the effing book already). And the Simon quote you chose is perfect!! That book is so quoteable I love it!

    • Thanks, Amy! 🙂
      Yes, you need to read The Knife of Never Letting Go ASAP! I still need to finish the rest of the series though.
      I love that Simon vs. is so quotable, but it was so hard choosing one! Love that book so much! ❤

  3. YES! I’m so happy to see a Jasper Jones quote in the mix of all of this! That book has so many quotable moments, I wouldn’t be able to decide!
    All your quotes were so deep and philosophical, I loved them.
    Great choices 💓

  4. Ugh I agree with you so much about the new wordpress layout. When I first saw it, I was like WHAT IS THIS?! It’s so complicated now and I bet I’m going to forget to schedule and accidentally post stuff (since it’s so easy to overlook now).
    I love all of the quotes that you chose and I’m reminded, yet again, that I need to read Chaos Walking! Hopefully I can get to it this month 😀

    • It’s definitely pretty complicated. I was about to give up on doing my TTT post on Monday night, because I was getting so frustrated and annoyed. I was also scared I was going to accidentally publish my post while I was working on it, because I am so used to saving the draft myself throughout writing up a post!

      Thanks! 🙂 It was so hard choosing quotes, because I love SO many! I haven’t finished the Chaos Walking series yet, but I really need to! The Knife of Never Letting Go was so good! 🙂
