Top Ten Favourite Book Quotes

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together.

This week’s list is about our favourite book quotes. I’m not one for remember book quotes so I had the help of Goodreads for this one!

“You can only actually help someone who wants to be helped.” – Jojo Moyes, Me Before You
“You can be okay again. Just a different kind of okay than before.”- Emery Lord, The Names They Gave Us
“If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.” – J.K. Rowling Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire
“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”- Neil Gaiman, Coraline
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…” -Dr Seuss, Oh The Places You’ll Go!
“Love is like the wind, you can’t see it but you can feel it.” -Nicholas Sparks, A Walk To Remember
“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.” – J.D Salinger, The Catcher In The Rye
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” -Dr Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut
“Sometimes people are beautiful.
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are.” – Markus Zusak, I Am The Messenger
“You don’t love someone because they’re perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they’re not.” -Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper

I absolutely loved looking up bookish quotes from some of my most favourite books. I absolutely love the quotes from Dr Seuss. What a genius that man was!

Here are some pretty Autumn/Fall covers that caught my eye. They may not look like an Autumn cover, but they’d make me want to read them Autumn if that makes sense.

Ten Characters I Didn’t Click With

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are the Ten Characters I Didn’t Click With. The characters I have mentioned have been in books I’ve enjoyed, I’ve just not clicked with the characters as much as I wanted to!

Bella Swan- Twilight

Twilight (Twilight, #1)

I feel like this is going to be a popular choice this week. It may be a predictable choice, but I just can’t help it. Bella Swan is just such an annoying character!

Holden Caulfield- The Catcher In The Rye

The Catcher in the Rye

I do love The Catcher In The Rye but I think Holden Caulfield is a character you either like or dislike and for me… it’s definitely on the dislike side! I found the insights interesting, but he just wound me up!

Alex, Mollie, Veronica- Those Girls

Those Girls

This book is an exception to the whole liking the book but not the characters statement I made earlier. I thought the writing was engaging in this book, but I just could NOT connect with the characters. I disliked them so much and wished they would have had some character development.

Bev- The Disenchantments

The Disenchantments

I liked The Disenchantments but I could not connect with Colby’s love interest Bev. I really didn’t see what he saw in her. She had no redeeming qualities in my eyes!

Ashleigh- Thousand Words

Thousand Words

I adore Jennifer Brown’s writing. I enjoyed this book and although I liked the main character, Ashleigh, I didn’t click with her as much as I wanted to!

Gigi- Smart Girls Get What They Want

Smart Girls Get What They Want

This book was a good light read but I found Gigi, the main character to be totally unlikeable!

Bishop- Hexed

Hexed (The Witch Hunter, #1)

Bishop, the love interest in this book, completely annoyed me. I think I was supposed to find him sexy and mysterious but he just made me cringe!

Sam- Flesh and Blood

Flesh and Blood (Red Eye)

Flesh and Blood was a decent read, but I thought Sam, the main character, came across as a little immature!

Ryan- Tape

Tape

Tape was an interesting book. It was quite slow paced and I felt like I didn’t gel with the main character, Ryan.

Alice- Side Effects May Vary

Side Effects May VaryThis book really divided me. I thought it was good, but at the same time I really didn’t like the main character, Alice. She has so much going on and it’s terrible that she’s suffering with cancer, but unfortunately because of her behaviour I found myself disconnecting with her and disliking her!
