top ten

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. These are 10 of my favorite book quotes. It was hard to narrow it down to 10. They are in no particular order.

“What you think is not important. It is only important what you do.” ~A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

“Music was always the one thing in life I could count on, the drug that took me away from reality and made me whole.” ~The Devil’s Metal by Karina Halle

“[T]he only way I was dealing with it was by not dealing with it, ever.” ~Ashes of Honor by Seanan McGuire

“Hope hurts. That’s what you need to learn, and fast, if you don’t want it to cut you open from the inside out. Hope is bad. Hope means you keep on holding to things that won’t ever be so again, and so you bleed an inch at a time until there’s nothing left.” ~Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

“[W]hen life gets beaten out of those who shine brightest, they recover, but sometimes that light never quite comes all the way back.” ~Don’t Let Go by Harlan Coben

“Good people do all the things bad people do, Lazlo. It’s just that when they do them, they call it justice.” ~Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

“Night skills: the ability to survive inside my own darkness.” ~Night Shift by Debi Gliori

“Your mind will believe comforting lies while also knowing the painful truths that make those lies necessary. And your mind will punish you for believing both.” ~A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

“I lived in books more than I lived anywhere else.” ~The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

“Popular young adult novels notwithstanding, vampires only sparkle when they burn.” ~Charming by Elliott James
