Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Quotes I Loved From Books I Read In The Past Year Or So

Tuesday, November 17, 2015
I am a great lover of quotes. I highlight, dog-ear, and even take pictures of page numbers in order to more effectively find every bad ass, snarky line uttered by fantasy characters. While I've saved a few inspiring lines from contemporaries, sarcasm is my first language and my first love. In case you couldn't tell by how many time Ms. Maas appears on this list. Quotes link back to their GR page whenever possible, in case you want to save along.

6. “You look . . . better than before."Was that a compliment? I could have sworn Lucien gave Tamlin an encouraging nod.

5. “If anyone saw Monique, a well-dressed woman of quality, dangling from the doorway, they apparently assumed everyone had difficulties in life and moved on.” ― Gail Carriger, Waistcoats & Weaponry
4. “The bodies in my floor all trusted someone. Now I walk on them to tea.” ― Victoria Schwab, A Darker Shade of Magic

3. “She was Aelin Ashryver Galathynius—­and she would not be afraid.” ― Sarah J. Maas, Heir of Fire

2. “The world has gone insane, and you can't get a decent pint of lager anywhere in this bloody country. I think I can safely say that my schoolmates were correct when they predicted my eventual destination, and I am now in hell.” ― Mira Grant, Deadline

1. “Jesper knocking his head against the hull and cast his eyes heavenward. "Fine. But if Pekka Rollins kills us all, I'm going to get Wylan's ghost to teach my ghost how to play the flute just so that I can annoy the hell out of your ghost."
Brekker's lips quirked. "I'll just hire Matthias' ghost to kick your ghost's ass."

"My ghost won't associate with your ghost," Matthias said primly, and then wondered if the sea air was rotting his brain.”

And my least favorite quote, because I never weary of punishing you all for making me read it:

Fabio, Pirate
