Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Great Book Quotes

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is:  Book Quotes that Fit X Theme (Pick any theme you want, i.e., motivational quotes, romantic dialogues, hunger-inducing quotes, quotes that fill you with hope, quotes on defeating adversity, quotes that present strong emotions, healing, etc. and then select quotes from books that fit that theme.)

Okay, I decided to go for great book quotes here because there are so many and I love quotes no matter if they are serious or funny! ;-P They are just great quotes and fit no particular theme though. So I guess you might say this is my somewhat own spin on this topic. *lol*

1.) “The heart is an arrow. It demands aim to land true.” – „Six of Crows“ by Leigh Bardugo

23437156

I remember reading „Six of Crows“ for the very first time and I was so thrilled by all the amazing banter and the great quotes. Leigh Bardugo wrote a masterpiece with this duology (that’s going to be a trilogy at some point!) and some of the quotes she came up with are epic and will be remembered for ages! Also when I saw that they used some of the quotes as the titles for the episodes of the „Shadow and Bone“ Netflix series I was totally over the moon! ❤

2.) “Kiss me again,” he says, drunk and foolish. “Kiss me until I am sick of it.” – „The Wicked King“ by Holly Black

Okay, but seriously, Cardan’s quotes in this series and his attitude are one of a kind and I just couldn’t get enough of this faerie! I’m such a sucker for Cardan and when I wrote my „The Wicked King“ review I said he could easily be the 8th member of BTS. *lol* Big mistake! Now I can’t unthink it anymore and whenever I picture Cardan in my mind I see V now. Haha! Honestly though! Tae when he wears those golden contact lenses and has dark hair?! *screams in Cardan*

3.) ”War doesn’t determine who’s right. War determines who remains.” – „The Poppy War“ by R.F. Kuang

35068705

There are so many amazing quotes in „The Poppy War“ it’s really hard to pick just one, but after thinking about it for a while I decided to go with this one. It’s very true and when I read it in the book this really hit me. For me „The Poppy War“ was quite a challenging book because at some points I actually had to put it aside in order to digest what I read. Not gonna lie, I’m still not over a lot of the things that happened in here and I’m also still working on finding the courage to read book two.

4.) ”Fear was Can’t.
Fear was Won’t.
But fear wasn’t ever a choice.” – „Darkdawn“ by Jay Kristoff

52783987. sy475

Fear is a recurring topic in „The Nevernight Chronicles“ and it’s like a thread that’s running through the entire trilogy. There’s a lot of discussion about fear and the different shades it can come in, as well as how it motivates, paralyzes or inhibits us and guides our actions. I always like things like this in my books so I really enjoyed that Jay Kristoff addressed this as a topic in his books.

5.) “The trouble with denial is that when the truth comes, you aren’t ready.” – „We Are Okay“ by Nina LaCour

28243032

This was one of the few grief reps I had the pleasure to read and I really liked it. A LOT! Nina LaCour is such a skilled writer and she conveys the different emotions of grief so well. Plus everything she wrote in here is true and that really hit me in the feels. If you’re interested in a good grief rep and haven’t read this book yet I can totally recommend it!

6.) ”Asking to hold a musician’s instrument is roughly similar to asking to kiss a man’s wife. Nonmusicians don’t understand. An instrument is like a companion and a lover.“ – „The Name of the Wind“ by Patrick Rothfuss

186074

And here we go with another book that’s full of great quotes! Today I decided to chose the one about music instruments because it resonated so much with me when I read it. *lol* I feel exactly the same way about my bass and guitar and whenever someone wants to touch them I’ve to suppress the urge to clutch them. XD Also I agree: an instrument is really like a companion and a lover. *lol*

7.) ”My words are unerring tools of destruction, and I’ve come unequipped with the ability to disarm them.“ – „The Raven Boys“ by Maggie Stiefvater

17675462. sy475

I feel this quote on so many levels it’s not normal anymore. There are often times in my life when I feel exactly the same way Gansey feels while he says that. Sometimes we just can’t seem to be able to choose the right words and no matter how much we try, they still come out wrong and we’re misunderstood. I love this quote so much and I think about it often so it definitely had to land in here! XD

8.) ”Your love is worthless. It’s your hate I need.” – „King of the Dark“ by Ariana Nash

54359996. sy475

Vasili’s words are so ruthless and cruel, yet this quote has some unexplainable allure for me. *lol* I can’t really describe it but something resonated with me when I read it. Maybe it’s because I’m a person that believes that love can conquer everything and to hear that he doesn’t want love but hate instead is oddly fascinating? It implies that hate is the stronger emotion, but I think Vasili will stand corrected by the end of that trilogy. Or well, at least I hope he will. *lol*

9.) ”Listen and learn it, learn to tell it, and tell it to teach it.” – „A Charm of Finches“ by Suanne Laqueur

33299920. sx318

I think this is a great motto to live by and just one of the many reasons why I loved „A Charm of Finches“ so much! This book is really great and it tackles so many tough topics I had to cry mulitple times while I read it. Yet at the same time it’s one of the most beautiful books I ever read as well. Suanne!!! Damn why do you write such great books? XD My emotions are still all over the place!

10.) ”Don’t let him escape!” said Mum. “This could be your only chance at securing a spouse!” – „Radio Silence“ by Alice Oseman

41827561. sy475

I had to laugh so hard when I read this in „Radio Silence“! Frances’s mother was such a great character and I really love that parents are always an important part in Alice Oseman’s books. Unlike in other YA books they actually play an active role in their childrens lives and I think we definitely need more reps like that!

So what about you? Which kind of quote theme did you chose for this „Top Ten Tuesday“ topic? Did you like the ones I chose and if yes which one was your favourite? Did you read any of the books I mentioned and did you enjoy them too? Are you planning to read some of them?

8 Gedanken zu „Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Great Book Quotes“

    1. Same for me! I really don’t like the absence of parents in YA books because in real life they are such an integral part of a teenager’s life! But if you don’t know Alice Oseman yet you should give her books a try. There are always parents in her books and other adults like teachers etc. too. And *lol* as a parent myself I totally feel your „Where are the parents?“ XD
