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

“Some things exist in our lives for but a brief moment. And we must let them go on to light another sky.”  The Wrath and the Dawn

“Don't feel bad for one moment about doing what brings you joy.” A Court of Thorns and Roses

''...What she didn't realize about Blue and her boys was that they were all in love with one another. She was no less obsessed with them than they were with her, or one another, analyzing every conversation and gesture, drawing out every joke into a longer and longer running gag, spending each moment either with one another or thinking about when next they would be with one another. Blue was perfectly aware that it was possible to have a friendship that wasn't all-encompassing, that wasn't blinding, deafening, maddening, quickening. It was just that now that she'd had this kind, she didn't want the other.”  Blue Lily, Lily Blue

“You do not write your life with words...You write it with actions. What you think is not important. It is only important what you do.”  A Monster Calls

“Does the walker choose the path, or the path the walker?”  Sabriel ♥

“It takes at least three assassination attempts to scare me off. And even then, if there are baked goods involved, I might come back.”  The Archived

“Fire-breathing bitch-queen.”  Queen of Shadows

“She was fire, and light, and ash, and embers. She was Aelin Fireheart, and she bowed for no one and nothing...'' Queen of Shadows

“You're beautiful and sad," I said finally, not looking at him when I did. "Just like your eyes. You're like a song that I heard when I was a little kid but forgot I knew until I heard it again." For a long moment there was only the whirring sound of the tires on the road, and then Sam said softly, "Thank you.” Shiver

“...she made her home in between the pages of books.”  Linger

BONUS for my shippers: “Adam was beginning to realize that he hadn't known Ronan at all. Or rather, he had known part of him and assumed it was all of him.”  Blue Lily, Lily Blue


  1. Sabriel! *hearts* I really should re-read that series one of these days (and read the new book, lol)...Great selection of quotes! :)

    My TTT

  2. Bahahaha, I love the one for The Archived! That book's super dark and witty. ;) Plus that Sabriel quote is making me FINALLY want to pick the book up!!

  3. Yes! Queen of Shadows and ACOTAR! Those two books own me! And Sabriel... so loving that one! This is an awesome post.

  4. Great list, Micheline! I love that quote from Sabriel. :D

  5. Whoa, that is seriously the most perfect analogy in that Shiver quote! I swear I have a song exactly like she described, and it is, in fact, beautiful and sad lol. Also, your post has suddenly made me very interested in reading Blue Lily, Lily Blue!

  6. Queen of Shadows was really full of quotable quotes! I really enjyoed reading that one because it felt like the prose was so lyrical and bad-ass at the same time :D

  7. OMG i love all your Maggie Quotes. Also who doesn't love Fire Breathing Bitch Queen?! It's the best! I'm also glad to see some from the Archived! Great picks dear.

  8. It will come as no surprise to you how much I LOVE the BLLB quote about the friendship between Blue and the Boys. I almost cried the first time I read it because there could not be a more perfect description of their relationship. Gods do we need The Raven King like NOWWWW!

  9. aHHHH THE FEELS ARE STRONG FOR THE RAVEN CYCLE FOR THIS ONE. *hyperventilates quietly* I have to admit I love that first BLLB quote. But then...all the other quotes too. Omg. <3 And that Archived quote just makes me want to read it even more!!
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

  10. I am sad to say that I have not read a single book on this list! What kind of craziness is that? I KNOW that I'd love all of them - not enough hours in the day!!!

    1. Okay, I'm going to add a Stiefvater book to my OTSPSecretSister wishlist? Which one should I add? What's the best series to start with??

    2. I know you're not asking me, Nicole, but I'm chiming in anyway: the Shiver series is awesome, but I like the Raven Cycle even more, I think. I'd go with Shiver if you want more swoony romance; The Raven Boys if you want more ... of everything. LOL!

  11. “Does the walker choose the path, or the path the walker?”

    Lovely quote!
