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

10. "Her eyes widen and she shoves me back and then there's a space between us, enough to paralyze me with all of the things I could do to her next. I could raise my hand and hit her in the face or bring my knee into her stomach, take a fistful of her hair and rip it out of her skull. You don't get to do this when you're a girl, so when the opportunity for violence finally presents itself, I want all of it at once." 
- Courtney Summers, All the Rage

9. “Aren't you afraid of dying?" he asked Lila now.
She looked at him as if it were a strange question. And then she shook her head. "Death comes for everyone," she said simply. "I'm not afraid of dying. But I am afraid of dying here." She swept her hand over the room, the tavern, the city. "I'd rather die on an adventure than live standing still.”
- V.E. Schwab, A Darker Shade of Magic

8. “Not everyone has to be the Chosen One. Not everyone has to be the guy who saves the world. Most people just have to live their lives the best they can, doing things that are great for them, having great friends, trying to make their lives better, loving people properly. All the while knowing that the world makes no sense but trying to find a way to be happy anyway.”
- Patrick Ness, The Rest of Us Just Live Here

7. “What's a dementor?"
I mean, I can't even. "Nora, you are no longer my sister."
"So it's some Harry Potter thing," she says.”
- Becky Albertalli, Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda

6. “She had been desperate to feel something, anything. She needed a window, because she had broken her heart throwing it at locked doors.”
Amy Zhang, Falling Into Place

5. “That's what life is, pretty much: full of holes and tangles and ways to get stuck. Uncomfortable and itchy. A present you never asked for, never wanted, never chose. A present you're supposed to be excited to wear, day after day, even when you'd rather stay in bed and do nothing.”
- Lauren Oliver, Vanishing Girls

4. “Could you do a glamour and turn into something smaller?" I asked it. "Preferably not a chain, since it's no longer the 1990s?"
The sword didn't reply (duh), but I imagined it was humming at a more interrogative pitch, like, Such as what?
"I dunno. Something pocket-size and innocuous. A pen, maybe?"
The sword pulsed, almost like it was laughing. I imagined it saying, A pen sword. That is the stupidest thing I've ever heard.”
- Rick Riordan, The Sword of Summer

3. “Suddenly all those careful preparations disintegrated as predators far more dangerous than the walking dead proved what all wise killers already knew: that nothing was more dangerous than living men.”
- Jonathan Maberry, Fire & Ash

2. “We're all mad here.” 
- Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

1. “No Mourners.
No Funerals.”
- Leigh Bardugo, Six of Crows

  2. I love quote #5! They're all so amazing.

    1. Quote #5 is probably the one that speaks to me the most. :) Thanks for stopping by. :)

  3. Jag älskar citatet ur Alice i Underlandet, och det ur The Rest of Us Just Live Here. Det är så många som har citerat intressanta saker ur Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda denna vecka att jag nog måste kika närmre på vad det är för bok.

    1. Jag med. :) Och Simon vs.. är en jättefin bok, rekommenderar den mer än gärna. :)

  4. The cover to A Darker Shade of Magic never really appealed to me, but I have seen it on a couple of lists this week and I really love the quotes! Just added it to my list :)

    My TTT.

    1. It's a great book. I hope you get to read, and enjoy, it soon. :) Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Okay, I REALLY need to read A Darker Shade of Magic! Really great quotes this week!

    Here are my Top Ten!

    1. Yes, you do! ;) Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Jag köper tröjerna på olika ställen, Primark då jag är i England, annars Qwertee som släpper 3 nya tröjor varje dag som bara finns tillgängliga i två dygn, första dygnet kostar de 10 euro och andra 12 euro:)

    1. Åh, jag älskar Primark. Har också lite tröjor därifrån. Mest HP och Marvel dock. Önskar så att vi också skulle ha ett Primark. Måste definitivt kolla in Qwertee också..jag gillar ju nördiga tröjor. :)

  7. Åh vilka bra citat! :) Älskar särskilt det från Alice in Wonderland (underbar bok) och de från Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda och det från The Rest of Us Just Live Here. Det är förövrigt två böcker jag är riktigt sugen på att läsa :)

    Får lust att också göra en sån här topp tio lista :)

    1. Jag rekommenderar båda, och hoppas att du gillar dem. Och gör gärna ett sånt här inlägg, det skulle vara så kul att se. :)

    2. Ja, ska köpa dem :)
      Jag har gjort en egen citat lista nu :) https://missmagicscabinet.wordpress.com/2015/11/23/topplista-favoritcitat-fran-bocker/

    3. Oj vad hände med min text och mellanrum LOL! XD

    4. Haha, jag vet inte. Men kul att du gjorde ett inlägg. Jag har givetvis redan kollat in det. :) Och jag hoppas att du ska tycka om böckerna om du köper dem. :)
