Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Quotes I loved from books I’ve read in the last year or so

Holy long post title! 

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted each week by The Broke and the Bookish

This weeks topic is 10 quotes I’ve loved from books I’ve read in the last year or so. This is going to be tough but here goes nothing! 

  1) “The breeze stirred the air above us with the sound of angels’ wings, and we fell slowly asleep together, as the moonlight bathed is in its ageless peace.” 
Diana Gabaldon, Drums of Autums 

  2) “I can bear pain myself, he said softly, but I couldna bear yours. That would take more strength than I have.” 
Diana Gabaldon, Outlander

  3) “I know why the Jews and the Muslims have nine hundred names for God; one small word is not enough for love.” 

Diana Gabaldon, Voyager 

  4) “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that.” 

JK Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

  5) “We’ve all got light and dark inside of us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.” 

JK Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix 

  6) “In nineteen minutes, you can mow the front lawn; color your hair; watch a third of a hockey game. In nineteen minutes, you can bake scones or get a tooth filled by a dentist; you can fold laundry for a family of five.

In nineteen minutes, you can stop the world; or you can just jump off it.”

Jodi Picoult, Nineteen Minutes

  7) “I believe that having something to hope for- even if its just a better tomorrow- is the most powerful drug on this planet.”

Jodi Picoult, The Storyteller 

  8) “Thomas Edison’s last words were “It’s very beautiful over there”. I don’t know where there is, but I believe it’s somewhere, and I hope it’s beautiful.” 

9) “It always shocked me when I realized that I wasn’t the only person in the world who thought and felt such strange and awful things.”

John Green, Looking for Alaska

  10) “Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, we’re proud to say they’re were perfectly normal, thank you very much.” 
JK Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

These are more like all time favorite quotes but I’m pretty sure I’ve read all of these books in 2015 as well do it works.

      1. The amount of pages has been kind of intimidating! I have an e-book copy too though and sometimes I find it easier to read longer books on e-book than in physical, because I’m not physically seeing how many pages I still have to read haha. With my e-books, I like to keep the page count turned off so I don’t wonder why I’m not reading fast enough, etc.

      2. I do the same thing with long books! I love reading them on my kindle so I can’t see how many pages I have left and all that, I feel like it helps me read quicker! The length of these books are really intimidating but once you start Outlander and get into it, the rest don’t seem as long. There’s just always so much going on!

      3. That’s good to know that there is always so much going on. I’m not a fan of books that don’t have tons of things going on. It usually takes me forever to really start liking it or wanting to keep reading.

      4. The beginning of the first Outlander book is a bit slow but it gets really really good after the first 100 pages. It seems like a lot to get through before it really picks up but you have to remember these books are normally 700-800+ pages
