Top Ten Favourite Quotes From Books

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today's topic is:

Top Ten Favourite Book Quotes
**Beware: there may be spoilers!
As a disclaimer, the last quote I read and love will always be whatever book I've last read, because I fall in love with words over and over again. So this is the 'current' Top Ten Favs that I remember...

1. I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, then all at once. 
-- The Fault In Our Stars, John Green

2. I needed to hate someone and you're the one I love the most, so it fell on you. 
-- Where She Went, Gayle Forman

3. "Oh, God," he whispers, reaching his hand behind my neck and bringing my lips to his. "Let's let the whole fucking world explode this time."
And we do. 
-- The Sky is Everywhere, Jandy Nelson

4. You love me. Real or not real? 
-- Mockingjay, Suzanne Collins

5. "There is no pretending," Jace said with absolute clarity. "I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there is life after that, I'll love you then." 
-- City of Glass, Cassandra Clare

6. "So do you believe in second chances?" I bit my lip.
"Second, third, fourth. Whatever it takes. However long it takes. If the person is right," he adds.
"If the person is...Lola?"
This time, he holds my gaze. "Only if the other person is Cricket." 
-- Lola and the Boy Next Door, Stephanie Perkins

7. What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person." 
-- Paper Towns, John Green

8. You like someone who can't like you back because unrequited love can be survived in a way that once-requited love cannot.
 -- Will Grayson, Will Grayson, John Green

9. Maybe it isn't that we're supposed to find the pieces and put them back together. Maybe we're the pieces. Maybe, what we're supposed to do is come together. That's how we stop the breaking. 
-- Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist, Rachel Cohn & David Levithan

10. It's not the changes that will break your heart; it's that tug of familiarity.
 -- The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, Jennifer E. Smith

Bonus 11. It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife. 
-- Pride & Prejudice, Jane Austen

Bonus 12. Envy is when you want what someone else has. Jealousy's when you also don't want them to have it. 
-- Wanderlove, Kirsten Hubbard

Ok, so I couldn't quite stick to 10.

    We have a lot of overlap this week. Love it. Sigh... I forgot how much I like the shadowhunters, but I'm seeing a lot of quotes. I need to go read the second infernal devices book that has been sitting on my shelf for too long. And man, did I love that part in Lola.

  6. DeniseFMay 8, 2012 at 7:02 AM

    Such a great list! I can't believe I forgot the Mockingjay quote when I made my list.

  7. FarahMay 8, 2012 at 7:40 AM

    Eeeppp!!! Love the one you take from Mockingjay and Lola. Awesome list! :D

    Drop by my Top 10?

  8. HollieMay 8, 2012 at 7:56 AM

    I love this list! I had the same quote from Mockingjay. I love all the quotes from the books that I've read (most of them!) and the rest of them have just made me really eager to read those books!

    I think you could probably quote Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist and The Sky is Everywhere forever. So much brilliance.
