Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and The Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.


This week's topic is: Top Ten Book Quote Freebie


*in no particular order
**these are just quotes I liked from recent reads...or at least ones I wrote down recently! Some may come off as slightly morbid but it is what spoke to me.


10. "The world is neither kind nor is it cruel. It simply exists. We have the ability to view it however we choose."
9. "When it comes to books, better to have too many than not enough."
8. "Books became my friends because I didn't have real ones."

7. All stories are made of both truths and lies. What matters is the way that we believe in them.
6. "I've always loved words. They have so much power. They can hurt or ruin. Or they can heal or uplift or fill. Words don't judge or discriminate. They are t be read, regardless of language or type. Words revive as quickly as they slay. Illuminate as fast as they can keep the reader in the dark."
5. But sometimes the story chooses the writer, not the other way around.

4. There is so much to fear in this life that you cannot live at all if you let it rule you.
3. The world was full of small enchantments, when one was willing to look for them.
2. The point of fantasies is to dream big, imagine things beyond our reality.

1. She tried to take comfort in the books. Stories had always felt as if they were her friends.
