Happy Friday bookish people! Have you seen any of your favourites on this list yet? We’ve still got a long way until we are in my top 10. Anyone else excited for that or is it just me? and really I shouldn’t be excited because I compiled the list and I know what’s in my top 10 already… nevermind, I’m still excited!
Today is numbers 80 – 71. There’s some interesting ones in this section although we are getting to the point now where there isn’t much I can say about each of the quotes so for this one I’m just going to list them. Enjoy!
At 80 we have a quote from a book that is on my TBR this month…
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
80. “I’d walk into the burning heart of Hell itself to find you” this quote is so dramatic I love it.
up next is a quote from a series that it has recently been announced will be turned into a TV show…
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
79.”I could set this world on fire and call it rain”
As will be common throughout these book quotes lists the next one is from a book I haven’t read yet..
Incendiary by Zoraida Cordova
78.”Crooked smiles for crooked hearts”
Number 77 is from a sequel…
King of Fools by Amanda Foody
77.”love always carved the deepest wounds”
Number 76, I have so many quotes from this book all throughout my top 100…
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
76.”let’s make this fight worthy of a song”
The next quote is from a series of books I’m not sure if I like them or not..
The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater
75.”dream me the world, something new for every night”
At 74 is a quote from the same book…
74.”what a strange constellation they all were”
Getting close to the end of this section now.. at 73 is a quote from a series I recently started…
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas
73.”remember that you are a wolf and you cannot be caged”
next is a quote from another book I haven’t read yet…
The Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson
72.”a lion fears only the fox”
and finally for this set of quotes at 71 is….
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
71.”a dream dirty and bruised is better than no dream at all” – can you tell I like quotes and books with themes of dreaming?
So that’s it for this weeks quotes, I’ll be back next Friday with 70 – 61 which include books like Serpent and Dove, Crescent City and The Wrath and the Dawn.
It took a little while to decide on this next set of ten, there are so many great choices but I settled on them eventually, and by that I mean I rewrote my list of 100 quotes about twelve times… anyway, moving on quickly to number 90!
A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
90. “Not all scars can be seen” – this quote really resonates with me for a lot of reasons that I wont go into here, but I have physical and mental scars that have effects on my life so it feels like a very important quote to include on this list.
At 89 is a quote from a book I read recently and I think it sums up how a lot of people, particularly some that I know, are feeling at the moment..
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
89. “You honestly expect me to breathe in a world without air” – I don’t think there is anything else I need to say about this quote.
The next quote is from a very popular fantasy series…
Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas
88. “She was the heir of ash and fire and she would bow to no-one” – I will admit I have not read this series yet although I do plan to soon but I have seen this quote on a few pieces of art and it intrigues me.
At 87 is a quote from one of my favourite female characters…
The Cruel Prince series by Holly Black
87. “If I cannot be better than them then I will become so much worse” – this is said by Jude, I think this quote really shows a lot about her character and where the story might be going.
The next quote is from another book I haven’t read yet (this is going to be a very common theme…)
Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte
86. “Let love guide your heart and everything else will fall into place” – this is just a lovely quote, whether that is love for a friend, a family member or a partner, I do believe love is an important part of life.
The next quote is from a unique sounding fantasy book…
All The Stars and Teeth by Adalyn Grace
85. “The mistakes I made in the past do not make me weak” – I can imagine a strong female lead saying this and it says so much in very few words.
At 84 is a quote from another popular series…
An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
84. “I’d rather die than live with no mercy, no honour, no soul” – I think this is a great quote because it shows so much about the character and what they stand for.
At 83 is a quote that I’ve really needed the past week…
Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte
83. “Sometimes we fail because we’re not meant to succeed” – everyone who knows me will know that I believe in fate and that things happen for a reason, this quote reminds me of this and as I said I’ve needed that this past week.
The next quote is from the final book in a series…
A Sky Beyond The Strom by Sabaa Tahir
82. “Broken things that are the sharpest. The deadliest” – this quote gives a great sense of atmosphere for this book.
And for the final quote of this installment is…
Queen of Volts by Amanda Foody
81. “What is buried is not always dead” – I have no idea why but this quote always gives me goosebumps.
So that’s it for this installment, come back next week for the next ten! I hope you all enjoyed it!
Happy Friday bookish people! I hope everyone has nice days planned for themselves, I have some work to do for a University assignment and a transcript to write but I might be able to squeeze some reading in later. It’s been almost a week since I’ve had chance to read anything and I’m feeling the effects.
Today’s post is the Bookshelf Tag! I had a really good time answering the questions in this tag, it made me look at my bookshelf for a looong time.
Describe your bookshelf and where you got it from? well, my room is small, like really really small. There’s enough room for my chest of drawers, my bed and a tiny walking space. That’s it. Literally my wardrobe is in the hallway so there’s no room for a bookshelf in my room. My Dad built shelves all around the walls of my room so that’s where my books are – and of course in my new book cart I got yesterday for my birthday!
How do you organise your books? Okay, here’s something about me – I love organising, anything lists, books, documents, EVERYTHING so I change how I organise my books all the time. Currently they are split into two halves – books I’ve read in alphabetical order then moves into books I haven’t read in alphabetical order. I don’t know how long it will stay like this…
What’s the longest book on your shelf? With 984 pages it has to be Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas which I actually have two copies of
4. What’s the shortest book on your shelf? It’s actually a book that I’m borrowing from my partner, and I have had it for many months, called The Oubliette (I think? I might even have the title wrong! oh dear…) it has under 300 pages.
5. Is there a book that you received as a birthday gift? Well, yesterday being my birthday (I now have to remember I’m 22) so I got a few books there: I hope you’re listening by Tom Ryan, Cosy Crime Short Stories, Detective Short Stories, the Caraval Collectors Edition, the Throne Of Glass Collectors Edition, Paris by Starlight and All the Tides of Fate by Adalyn Grace. I’m very excited for all of them.
6. Is there a book from a friend on your shelf? My friend got me Paris by Starlight for me for my birthday so I guess that counts, otherwise I actually don’t think there is. There’s lots of books that were recommended to me by my friends but none they actually got me.
7. The most expensive book on your shelf? I have a beautiful version of Les Miserables by Victor Hugo with gold page edges and it’s so nice I don’t let anyone touch it. I’m not sure exactly how much it cost but I think it was about £50…
8. The last book you read on your shelf? Ooh this was What A Way To Go by Julia Forster and I must say I did not enjoy this book very much at all.
9. Do you have a complete series? Yes, many, but the one in particular that is coming to mind is the Stalking Jack the Ripper series by Kerri maniscalco. I LOVE this series, I’m pretty sure it’s always going to be one of my favourite series’ and also one of my top OTPs.
10. What’s the newest addition to your shelf? The Caraval Collectors Edition. It took me ages to put it on my shelf because I didn’t want to let go of it, I love it so much. It has a chapter in Julian’s POV and it’s all I’ve ever wanted.
11. The oldest book on your shelf? That would be Robinson Crusoe but the less said about that the better.
12. What’s a book you’d hate to let out of your sight? All of them. If you take my books then you’re honestly risking your life.
13. Most beat up book? I’m actually not sure, there’s an awful crack down the spine (and in my heart!) of my copy of The Cruel Prince by Holly Black.
14. Most pristine book? All the ones I haven’t read yet, and there are many many books I haven’t read yet on my shelves…
15. A book that doesn’t belong to you? A Deal With the Elf King by Elise Kova, it’s actually my mum’s but she keeps it on my shelf.
16. A book that is your favourite colour? Well, my favourite colour is forest green so.. ooh the Strange Case of the Alchemists Daughter by Theodora Goss is really close to my favourite colour!
17. A book that’s been on your shelf the longest and you still haven’t read it? Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. I even did a module about Austen on my University course and still didn’t read it.
18. Any signed books? I have many signed books. Where I live it’s very difficult to just go and get books signed so whenever a book I want has a signed edition to buy I’ll always choose the signed one if I can.
That’s it for today’s tag! I hope you all enjoyed it! My next post is going to be some book reviews so come back for them if you’re interested.
