Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.
This week is one of my favorite Top Ten topics! I absolutely love quotes and I love highlighting them or marking them on my books. So, today I'm listing some of my favorite quotes of book I've read this year. There are some really deep ones, some that I just thought were funny, the ones that for some reason resonated with me and some of them were just too epic to pass out. Here we go!
"The thing is, being lonely is like walking in the cold without a coat. It’s uncomfortable, but eventually you go numb. Once you get used to not being lonely, though, the shock of going back is like having your down comforter yanked off at six o’clock on a Minnesota December morning".
