Top ten tuesday: Top Ten Quotes I Have Loved From Books I Read In The Past Year


Hellllllllllllo readers, it’s a Tuesday and it’s time for another top ten tuesday kinda post. I am super excited about this weeks topic because as you might know I lave quotes. Especially the kind you find in really great books. Have to admit I am so happy that it wasn’t ten of your favourite quotes because there is no way  I could have picked ten; however these are a number that I have really adored over the past year.

“Even if we could turn back, we’d probably never end up where we started.”
Haruki Murakami, 1Q84

“some people aren’t just people, but a place—a whole world. Sometimes you find someone you could live in for the rest of your life.”
Caitlin Moran, How to Build a Girl

“I wanted the whole world or nothing.”
Charles Bukowski, Post Office

“would you reach in the drawer there and give me my purse. A girl doesn’t read this sort of thing without her lipstick.”
Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany’s: A Short Novel and Three Stories


“People are too various to be treated so lightly. I am too various to be trusted.”
James Baldwin, Giovanni’s Room

“The stars are a free show; it don’t cost anything to use your eyes”
George Orwell, Down and Out in Paris and London

“He wonders what memories she is rediscovering, what thoughts are catching in her mouth like the dust blown from unused textbooks.”
Jon McGregor, If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things

“The world is not a wish-granting factory.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars


“Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.”

annnnnd because I couldn’t not.

It was like there was an elephant in the room. An elephant that expected us to have sex.” 

Morgan Matson, Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour

There we go, ten utterly gorgeous quotes that I think are just wonderful. I really tried not to be to cliché but there were just some that I couldn’t not include. As always comments, queries, what would you add or take away let me know or tweet me @littlebookblog1

    I was going to have a go at this one too and one of mine will be that exact quote from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Such a great character and that quote really sums it up. I love the Caitlin Moran you choose too, she’s one of my absolutely favourite writers.

    I love that George Orwell quote about the stars. I never really save quotes from books, but now I see how amazing it is to have a little snippet of favorite books – or just favorite lines – saved somewhere.
