In honor of my 18th birthday yesterday, I decided to do a post of my 18 all time favorite book quotes! Some of the quotes I love because they are so good, not just because of the book they are in. These are in no particular order, if I tried to order them I would never finish this post!
#1- “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, But in ourselves.” This quote was in The Fault in our Stars by John Green and was borrowed from Julius Caesar by Shakespeare. I love this quote on such a deep level.
#2- “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live” said Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling.
#3- “Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on Earth should that mean that it is not real?” Albus Dumbledore said in Harry Potter. This quote pretty much sums up how books are for me, they are in my head but they feel so real and I want them to be sometimes.
#4- “Annabeth sat up and glared at her ankle. “You HAD to break,” she scolded it.The ankle did not reply.” This quote is by Rick Riordan in the Mark of Athena. This is one of my favorite quotes from all time and it makes me laugh every single time I read it. Riordan is sort of a genious.
#5- “Did you think you could stop me? I’ll burn the world down to save her.” Daemon Black said this and Jennifer Armentrout wrote it. This quote makes me fall even more in love with Daemon and that burn down the world for love motif is a big one in the Lux series and I love it so much!
#6- “The Gods know what it is to be eternal, and they love to toy with mortals who use absolutes.” This quote is from Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini. I love mythology and the Gods and never say never!
#7- “I was a little worried she might try to drag me off to hell and drain my essence at some point, but I figured that was still better than having Gretchen for a best friend.” This is also by Josephine Angelini in Starcrossed. Let’s be honest, we all have that one person.
#8- “That’s the thing about pain…it demands to be felt” said by Augustus Waters in the Fault in our Stars. This quote just rings true to me and I like how philosophical it is.
#9- “It’s a metaphor, see: You put the killing thing right between your teeth, but you don’t give it the power to do its killing.” Augustus Waters also said this in the Fault in our Stars. This quote is one of my favorites of all time and I say it all the time because I love the irony of it. This quote is just amazing.
#10- “May the odds be ever in your favor” from the hunger games by Suzanne Collins. The irony of this quote is hilarious to me and I like to use this in every day life when it is way too dramatic for what’s going on.
#11- “I have something I need to tell you,” he says. I run my fingers along the tendons in his hands and look back at him. “I might be in love with you.” He smiles a little. “I’m waiting until I’m sure to tell you, though.”
“That’s sensible of you,” I say, smiling too. “We should find some paper so you can make a list or a chart or something.”
I feel his laughter against my side, his nose sliding along my jaw, his lips pressing my ear.
“Maybe I’m already sure,” he says, “and I just don’t want to frighten you.”
I laugh a little. “Then you should know better.”
“Fine,” he says. “Then I love you.”
This quote is from Divergent by Veronica Roth. I love Tobias so much and I had to choose this quote even though it’s long because I love it and it makes me happy to read!
#12- “I’m alright,” Loki assured me with a grin and stepped out into the hall, so we could have some privacy from onlookers. “What can I do for you, Princess?”
“Can I cut off your head?” I asked.
“Are you asking for my permission?” Loki tilted his head and cocked an eyebrow. “Because I’m going to have to say no to this one request, Princess.”
This quote is from the Trylle trilogy book 3 Ascend by Amanda Hocking. This is one of my favorite trilogies and I love the humor in the book, mostly coming from Loki.
#13- “Beautiful face. Beautiful body. Horrible attitude. It was the holy trinity of hot boys.” JLA describes Daemon black in six words. Oh how I love this character!
#14- “Why are you such an ass?” The words came out before I could think twice.
“Everyone has to excel at something, right?”
“Well, you’re doing a great job.”
Again, Daemon Black from the Lux novels by Jennifer Armentrout. I kind of miss the old him who was such an “ass” before he was totally a romantic but I still love him all the same.
#15- “Oh well… I’d just been thinking, if you had died, you’d have been welcome to share my toilet.” said Moaning Myrtle in Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. She is one of my favorite characters and I think it’s hilarious.
#16- “Get the hell away from my boyfriend, witch.”
Was that what I was?
I tried to smile. Instead, I blacked out.”
This is from Beautiful Creatures and Ethan Wate said this quote. This is my favorite paranormal romance series besides twilight of course. I love these books and I love the initial awkwardness, and this quote is one of my favorites from the book.
#17- “What’s this?” he demanded, looking from Clary to his companions, as if they might know what she was doing there.
“It’s a girl,” Jace said,recovering his composure. “Surely you’ve seen girls before, Alec. Your sister Isabelle is one.”
This is from the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, which I love. This is from when Clary was first brought into the new crazy world and it kept on getting crazier from here on out! I love this part of the book and knowing Alec’s character better, it is humorous.
#18- “My girlfriend is a party girl angel who can kick some arse and cook.” This quote is from Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins. This trilogy is super amazing and this quote was said by Kaidan Rowe who is second on my fiction crush list only behind Daemon Black! He is British, an awesome son of a demon, and super protective even when trying to stay away and I love this quote because it brings out his British accent!
Well that was all 18 quotes and if you have not read all of the books these quotes are from I highly recommend it! I had a lot of fun writing this post! I need some new favorite books because I am running out, so if you have any feel free to share in the comments!
