Top 5 Tuesday: Book Quotes

Another Tuesday means another top 5 created by Shanah over at Bionic Book Worm and this week we have a topic I have been looking forward to for a while. Top 5 book quotes. You have to understand, I love quotes. And when I say love I mean I literally have them written everywhere: word documents full of them, bedroom walls plastered with them, notebooks covered in them! I also love sharing my favourite quotes (whenever I write a birthday card for my friends I always include a quote relevant to them!) so I’m really excited to be doing this post today.

The Book Thief – Markus Zusak

I have hated words and I have loved them and I hope that I have made them right. 

Shatter Me – Tahere Mafi 

Shatter me

The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves, it’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human. Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections. 

Turtles All the Way Down – John Green

We always say that we are beneath the stars. We aren’t of course – there is no up or down, and anyway the stars surround us. But we say we are beneath them, which is nice. So often English glorifies the human – we are whos, other animals are that’s – but English puts us beneath the stars at least. 

Crooked Kingdom – Leigh Bardugo

What about the nobodies and the nothings, the invisible girls? We learn to hold our heads as if we wear crowns. 

The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Stephen Chbosky

I know these will all be stories someday, and our pictures will become old photographs. We will all become somebody’s Mom or Dad. But right now, these moments are not stories. This is happening. I am here, and I am looking at her. And she is so beautiful. I can see it. This one moment when you know you’re not a sad story. You are alive. 

So there we have it, my top 5 favourite book quotes (as of right now, ask me again in a week and you might get a different list!). I am honestly amazed that I managed to narrow it down. One thing I did find was that, not only were there lots of quotes from different books that I had to leave out, but I also could have chosen any number of quotes from the books I already have featured!

So do you like the quotes I picked? What are your favourite book quotes?

As always, happy reading!

  1. I absolutely love the quotes you picked! And I’m so glad that there’s someone out there who loves quotes as much as I do!!!! They are so great! I may need to repeat this topic again in the next coming months – it seems as though people love them as much as I do!
    Thanks again for participating 🙂

    1. Thanks!! Honestly, I love them so much!! One of the great things about quotes too is that I’m constantly adding to my favourite quotes every time I read a new book, so I think it could be really cool to have it as a repeat topic sometime! 🙂

  2. I am seriously loving this topic because I am TRASH for a good quote. You could have chosen practically anything from Perks and I would have been on board, but I love the one you chose. Also I haven’t read Turtles yet, but I love that quote. “but English puts us beneath the stars at least.” Seriously, love that!

    1. Honestly me too, quotes are like my favourite thing! Thanks, for most of the books on my list there are so many quotes that I love I found it so hard to pick just one but I’m glad you like the Wallflower one! Oh my goodness, the stars quote is genuinely one of my favourites ever, like John Green has taken something so everyday and made it into something completely beautiful! 🙂

  3. I love all the quotes you picked and it only makes me want to read Turtles All The Way Down and the Six of Crows duology even more. It’s super cool that you include quotes in your friends birthday cards, ahhh such an awesome idea.

    1. Thanks!! Honestly there are so many quotes I could have picked from all three of those books so I would highly recommend!! Haha, thanks, it’s normally for my own sake more than anything (if I find a quote I like I normally want to tell the whole world about it!) but people have told me they really like them so that’s always nice!! 🙂
