Top Ten Tuesday: Book Quotes from My Recent Reads

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is a Book Quote Freebie. I love a good quote and thought I would share some of my favourite quotes from books I have recently read.

“…being optimistic doesn’t make you naïve. You see things not for what they are, but for what they could be.”

― Rachel Smythe, Lore Olympus, Season 1

“Why is straight the default? Everyone should have to declare one way or another, and it shouldn’t be this big awkward thing whether you’re straight, gay, bi, or whatever. I’m just saying.”

― Becky Albertalli, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

“By you, I am forever undone.”

― Holly Black, The Queen of Nothing

“The three of you have one solution to every problem. Murder. No key fits every lock.” Cardan gives us all a stern look, holding up a long-fingered hand with my stolen ruby ring still on one finger. “Someone tries to betray the High King, murder. Someone gives you a harsh look, murder. Someone disrespects you, murder. Someone ruins your laundry, murder.

― Holly Black, The Wicked King

“If I cannot be better than them, I will become so much worse.”

― Holly Black, The Cruel Prince

“How are you supposed to get experience when nobody will hire you unless you have experience?!”

― Jarrett Melendez, Chef’s Kiss

“Love can’t cure a mental illness.”

― Alice Oseman, Heartstopper: Volume Four

“I think it’s usually better to face the world as it is. The more we try to hide from something, the more power we give it.”

― Alexis Hall, Boyfriend Material

“You can have anything,” she said, “once you admit you deserve it.”

― Meredith Russo, If I Was Your Girl

“There’s only so much you can take being described as somebody you’re not.”

― Angie Thomas, On the Come Up
