Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Broke and Bookish
This week’s theme was Top Ten Quotes I Loved From Books I Read In The Past Year Or So
I went with just my top favorites
- A Throne of Glass
Libraries were full of ideas~Perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons
- A Little Princess
I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if theyaren’t pretty, or smart, or young. They’re still princesses
- A Queen of Shadows

You’re something called a ‘human being.’ That’s a really smart kind of animal. Like every other animal on this planet, we’re descended from a single-celled organism that lived millions of years ago.

About how we were all created by a super-powerful dude named God who lives up in the sky? Total bullshit. The whole God thing is actually an ancient fairy tale that people have been telling one another for thousands of years. We made it all up. Like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. “Oh, and by the way … there’s no Santa Claus or Easter Bunny. Also bullshit. Sorry, kid Deal with it.”
― Ernest Cline,
- Fangirl“I don’t trust anybody. Not anybody. And the more that I care about someone, the more sure I am they’re going to get tired of me and take off.”

- Wuthering Heights
