Welcome back to Top 10 Tuesday, originally created and hosted by The Broke & the Bookish and now in its new home with Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week the topic is:

Top 10 Favourite Book Quotes

  1. “I want to know what’s going on inside your brain. I want to juice your head like a lemon.” – The Hating Game by Sally Thorne. Honestly, I love this entire book, there’s probably 500 quotes I could’ve chosen. I just really like the whole visual this gives me…..actually juicing someone’s brain to squeeze all the thoughts out.
  2. “Do you think people have noticed I’m around?” / “I notice when you’re not. Does that count?” – Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta. Will Trombal!
  3. “I understand I can’t have you. But I want to know you’re in the world with me.” – Forget You by Jennifer Echols. Man do I love this line soooo much.
  4. “It is better to pursue a hopeless hope than to give in to black despair.” – The Sending by Isabelle Carmody.
  5. “It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness.” – The Kreutzer Sonata by Leo Tolstoy.
  6. “You have to know what you stand for, not just what you stand against.” – Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.
  7. “People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for.” – To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
  8. “You don’t have to pretend with me, you know.’ He reaches out and tucks a strand of my hair behind my ear. His expression is so open and honest I feel it like a sucker punch. ‘I used to pretend, all the time, so I can spot it a mile away. If you’re feeling shit, then just say so. I don’t need to know the reason, it might be none of my business—’
    ‘I’m feeling shit.” – 
    Every Breath by Ellie Marney.
  9. “I wanted you to go away, because it hurts to be with you when I can’t see you.” – Graceling by Kristin Cashore.
  10. “If I cannot be better than them, I will become so much worse.” – The Cruel Prince by Holly Black.

I find that mostly of my favourite quotes from books are pretty fluid – some stick in my mind for a long time. I’ve actually never read the Leo Tolstoy book that my #5 quote comes from but I love it anyway. Other quotes are from books I’ve read recently, because they’re just really fresh in my mind. Ones that stick the most are from books I re-read a lot. Quotes aren’t often something I really think about much, I had to look for a few of these, knowing I had favourite lines from books but wanting to get them accurate.
