Favorite Literary Quotes

I am a huge fan of quotes because they’re simply words that make an impact on how we perceive different meanings and feelings towards whatever the context may be from. Quotes can be long or short, but it doesn’t particularly matter in the sense that no matter what, they can still make a difference. So, I’m here to show you some of my favorite literary quotes!!

**Disclaimer** These are my own views, thoughts, and opinions, that are solely my own. If you happen to not like a quote, tell me why, or if you do happen to like one of these quotes, let me know in the comments below!

I also won’t describe how I view them or why I chose them because I want you to be able to read these quotes and think about how you feel about themselves rather than me saying how I feel about them and giving you a different outlook before you make yours. But I will be happy if you want to ask me what they mean to me, so leave a comment or contact me through any social media account so we can discuss them!

I encourage you all to comment which one you liked and what it means to you or comment your favorite quotes!

3 – “The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human. Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.” – Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

4 – “Just because you can’t experience everything doesn’t mean you shouldn’t experience anything.” – Nicola Yoon, Everything, Everything

5 – “Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.” – Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor and Park

8 – “So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them.

And we can try to feel okay about them.” – Stephen Chbosky, Perks of Being a Wallflower

10 – “It’s so hard to talk when you want to kill yourself. That’s above and beyond everything else, and it’s not a mental complaint-it’s a physical thing like it’s physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don’t come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people’s words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.”– Ned Vizzini, It’s Kind of a Funny Story

11 (Bonus) – “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before Tag

I’m going to be civil while answering this and give other books a chance instead of saying that one book over and over for multiple questions

Restore Me, I think after not reading the series for even a few months prior to reading this sequel, I feel as though it returned the love I felt for the series in it of itself, that there is just so much I rekindled with.

Out of my Comfort Zone Tag

CREATE A RULE: Choose one genre/category of books that you frequently talk about in tags and don’t use ANY books from that genre for answers. I plan to use books that I have talked about before, and not use them in this tag.

Print1. A book that is an exception when it comes to genres or elements in books that you don’t typically like.

Every Little Bad Idea – I usually don’t like reading books in verse, it’s just a good fit. I picked up this book and thought this was going to be an easy, boring read, but it wasn’t it was really good!

 

2. A book you enjoyed from a genre you previously held some stigma about.27833670

I don’t remember putting Dark Matter in any of my tags, so I’ll put it here. I typically don’t like science fiction, and my sister had just finished reading this and she loved it, and so I gave it a try, and I basically read it in two sittings because it was so compelling and so good!

 

51ryTHrc7gL._SX334_BO1,204,203,200_3. A book you didn’t know was actually out of your comfort zone until you started reading it.

What Ever Happened to Interracial Love? I didn’t really like this story, it’s told in different short stories, and I feel as though the stories were supposed to connect somehow, and then they didn’t, so to me, it felt random, and it didn’t really have a point to them.

 

4. Pick a friend or BookTuber that motivates you to pick up books you might not normally be interested in. What is one book out of your norm that they convinced 51EstVXM1UL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_you to give a try?

One of my friends had referred me to read Lord of the Rings. I started it a long time ago, and never got into it, but the book still has caught my attention to read, so maybe I’ll pick it up sometime in the future.

 

51JKV0OgV3L5. A book that is out of your comfort zone that you would like to read.

The Nightingale, I love learning about history and different aspects of it, but for some reason, I can’t get into historical fiction novels as much as I would like to.

 

 

6. A book or genre so out of what you normally read that you’ll probably never give it a(nother) chance.

I’d have to say either short stories or playwrights, but I might read more playwrights in the future, but more so the whole short story concepts, which means a collection of short stories combined into one.

Books to Read Because of the Characters

As you all should have realized by now that there isn’t a book without characters in them. Every book has characters because the story is about their life and their own specific journey, so I have decided to write about the characters that made the book so fantastic or characters in general that are amazing.

**Disclaimer** Views, thoughts, and opinions are solely my own. If I happen to not exactly like a character, but if you do, please do not feel discouraged or feel like I’m personally attacking you. They’re just my own opinions, as you are entitled to your own, regardless if I like the characters or not, I still would like to know your own thoughts too! So please, feel free to leave a comment and let me know!

In no particular order:

51VFrzslYiL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_

1 – Evelyn Hugo from The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

So if you’ve read my review on this book, I raved about how much I adored this book. And since it’s basically all about Evelyn’s life, there was a lot we learned about her character. She has gone through so much in her life, and she’s kept it together, and she’s pretty badass for how she went through it all. I also liked her message to Monique once they began the interview, which was, she wanted people to know the entire story, she didn’t want people to think she’s just a good person because she accepts that she wasn’t all the time, and wanted to make sure that people knew she wasn’t a perfect person, and I respect that so much.

s-l300

2 – Kenji and Warner from The Shatter Me series

Obviously, this book wouldn’t exist without Juliette but the two characters that I’ve chosen for this is because they made this book so much better. Kenji makes the situation of things so much better because he’s so funny like that’s the kind of person he is. I think without Kenji, this book series would not be as good as it is because everything would be serious, and kind of depressing. And Warner, his character has been like a whirlwind from the beginning. We thought he was this tough, bad guy, and then he’s not as bad, that he’s this lovable character that just has a very complicated past.

3 – Simon and Magnus from The Mortal Instruments

Simon is such a great character because he’s relatable, he’s not from a magic world, he’s from the “real” world. He’s so innocent, oblivious but he’s also caring and dedicated. Simon has flaws, he gets himself into trouble, but when he gets stuck in those situations, he is mostly humorous like has comic relief in a serious situation, and I think those characteristics also bring out the best in him. Magnus is more of a serious character, but he has this kind of personality that is really likable. He does have some comic relief in the story that helps bring out his character as well. He’s lived through many lives and hasn’t had it easy all the time, but he’s still pretty positive. He is hesitant to help out Clary and Jace, but once he does, he is always there to help, (probably because of Alec, but who knows.)

518zN4ZSZiL._SX328_BO1,204,203,200_

4 – Felicity from The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue

On this blog, I’ve mentioned Percy and Monty, but I hardly talk about Felicity, Monty’s sister. She goes along with them on their voyage, and we get a sense of what her character is like. She’s very bright and usually knows how to get out of unprevented situations. She is also pretty badass as well, and I cannot wait until the book comes out in a couple months that’s written about her.

1c6482f9a5e78caaf7292317c3bf313c

5 – Rowan from Heir of Fire

I feel as though the series didn’t really progress very much until we get to the third book in which we Rowan. At first I didn’t know what I should think about him because we were introduced to this new character and he didn’t seem very likable in the beginning. As we learned more about him, he was fairly sweet and very knowledgeable, especially about how the fae world. Rowan had disputes with Aelin for a good majority of this novel, but forcing her to face her own fear, and being hostile towards her, made her be stronger, and he’s just was she needed.

941b1e06449390c01d20d7fdd4692d8d

6 – Dobby and Neville from Harry Potter

I know what you’re thinking, it wouldn’t be Harry Potter without Harry, Hermione, or Ron but besides those characters, these two are ones that I adored throughout reading Harry Potter. Dobby comes in the second book, I believe and ever since he has made chaos for Harry, he’s grown into his life, and as a really enjoyable character. We don’t see much of Dobby throughout the whole series but once he’s there, it’s so funny and enjoyable to read about. Neville, I think isn’t very likable to other reader’s because he’s shy and we don’t really get to see too much from him but I think from what I’ve read (and watched) that he is the most developed character in this entire series because he goes from this shy kid to this person who’s brave and is willing to sacrifice himself to save others, and that’s what I admire about him the most.

51stviwczzl-_sx338_bo1204203200_

7 – Wavy from All the Ugly and Wonderful Things

Wavy is the main character in this novel, and I don’t think it would have been as great as a book if it were any other character because she’s so unique. She’s lived in pretty much terrible places, and has dealt with bad people. She’s quiet, also mute for a good chunk of her years growing up. Once she meets Kellan, someone who accepts her, she grows into someone she wants to be. There is so much character development that we see from her all throughout the novel. Her character is so well-developed, that she seems almost real and that’s what the story is; it’s not a true story, but it can easily happen in our world today.

220px-Six_of_Crows_by_Leigh_Bardugo_book_cover

8 – Inej from Six of Crows

I loved a lot of the characters from the Six of Crows series, but Inej is someone that I feel as though she keeps everyone together, whether if she’s present or not. She tries to balance out the issues and tensions that have been caused all throughout this group of people and there’s something about her personality that causes most it to relax. When Inej was gone for a while in Crooked Kingdom, the entire group was right there, working together to bring her back. And plus, Inej is just a badass because she’s strong and can fight in really hard situations, and can win.

4667024

9 – Aibileen and Minny from The Help

This book has three different perspectives, Aibileen, Minny, and Skeeter. I think Skeeter is another very well written character and she brings a lot to the story as well. But, Aibileen and Minny are maids and I think from their points of view, it gives a whole new light on what it was like to be a maid in the 1960’s. Aibileen is a maid who basically has raised other people’s children, and she’s very smart for how people make her feel during that time period. Minny is very sarcastic, and she has gone through a lot in the novel and she is still standing strong from all of that. So these two women are apart of this book Skeeter wrote, but not only that, they helped raise awareness to other maids to join as well.

51dQBC7HcaL._SX320_BO1,204,203,200_

10 – Ove from A Man Called Ove

Ove is a special kind of man because we learn that he’s had a rough life growing up, but he’s always been dedicated and deep down he has a kind heart. Without Ove, this story wouldn’t be as good without him since it’s all about his life, mostly in the present time. It’s more so a humorous style, but at points it can be dark, and I feel as though throughout the novel we get to see the side Ove doesn’t want anyone to see because he’s still grieving his wife. Ove is a grumpy old man, he yells at people for breaking the rules around the home he lives in. He didn’t like new people moving next door but after a while, he secretly wanted them around although he acted like he didn’t, and for his longtime neighbor was going through trouble, he helped even though they didn’t get along all the time.

Unpopular Opinion Book Tag

220px-Throne_of_Glass_series51mwJJKf4GL._SX345_BO1,204,203,200_1 – A Popular Book or series that you didn’t like.

Hmm, I still kind of like this series, but Throne of Glass because every time it’s brought up, and I’m, ehh, nope. Or also The Raven Cycle, I don’t like this series,  I only read the first two, and cannot continue with it.

 

$_57.JPGs-l300

2 – A Popular Book or series that everyone else seems to hate but you love.

This is popular, and some people do like it, and some don’t but it’s either Shatter Me or The Mortal Instruments. I feel like more and more people are saying they don’t like these series, but I love them so much.

3 – A Love Triangle where the main character ended up with the person you did NOT want them to end up with (warn ppl for spoilers) OR an OTP that you don’t like.

I honestly cannot think of a couple or love triangle, so I guess I have to skip this one.

4 -A popular book Genre that you hardly reach for.

Science Fiction, I just have never really gotten into the whole concept, even with movies and tv shows, there’s just no appeal.

$_575 – A popular or beloved character that you do not like.

Oooh, this is a hard one. I think the character that I don’t like all too much is, Isabelle from the Mortal Instruments. She has her moments, but her character doesn’t really do much for me.

 

6 – A popular author that you can’t seem to get into.

Maurene Goo, She’s a newer author, I’ve only read one book from her, and although I’ve heard good things about the newest book, I have a feeling her writing hasn’t changed all that much.

7 – A popular book trope that you’re tired of seeing. (examples “lost princess”, corrupt ruler, love triangles, etc.)

I think Insta-love, I used to read all kinds of books with that trope, but now it doesn’t make sense, it always seems rushed and typically it isn’t written well. I will say that some authors can write Insta-love very well, but now it’s rare that it happens.

8 – A popular series that you have no interest in reading.

There’s a few that I don’t plan on reading which are, The Maze Runner, The Selection, and Beautiful Creatures. They just don’t seem all that appealing to me.

71mzsqke5aL9 – The saying goes “The book is always better than the movie”, but what movie or T.V. show adaptation do you prefer more than the book?

This movie is one of my all time favorite movies, which is, The Longest Ride, originally written by Nicholas Sparks. I read the book after watching the movie, and I don’t think that has any effect on why I liked the movie better. I think the movie didn’t a much better way of showing the old man’s life than the book. I have read a few other novels by Nicholas Sparks, and I think the movies are typically better than his writing.

Meh Book Tag

1 – What is your “Meh” book rating

About 3 stars. Meh is more of “It wasn’t terrible but wasn’t good either” so it gives a rating basically in the middle.

81tWhFdQroL2 – Book series that started “Meh” but ended up being really good

I think for this one would be Shatter Me because I read the first book and it was okay, and the more I read, the more I wanted to read the next books, and since I haven’t read Restore Me, I guess I can’t exactly say that it’s entirely good, but I have high hopes for the next one.

 

220px-Throne_of_Glass_series3 – Book series that started good but ended “Meh”

This book series isn’t officially finished, but it almost is. I would say Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas because it was promising but her books are very long, and dry. It’s detailed and well written but it’s so tiring reading them. I haven’t picked up Tower of Dawn because I’m not a fan of Chaol, and trying to read a whole 700 pages book that if it continues the cycle of dryness, it will be so hard for me to read.

4 – An overhyped author you think is just “Meh”

Honestly, probably Sarah J. Maas. She has really good writing and plot ideas, but sometimes there isn’t enough character personality to it, or vice versa. I don’t think it’s consistent. I’m hoping as I continue on with the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, that it isn’t a let down of Throne of Glass.

9780525478812_custom-7eb6cc16a8a3f2266865895e1718ac9e9d6232e0-s6-c305 – A book others think is “Meh” But you love

The Fault in our Stars is considered over-hyped and not that good because the way the characters talk is unrealistic with their metaphors. I loved this book when I first read this, and maybe I would change my mind if I read it now, but since I haven’t I’m sticking with that current opinion.

 

 

awake-by-natasha-preston.jpg6 – A book so “Meh” that you forgot the plot

I think for this one I’ll say Awake by Natasha Preston. I read this book a while ago and I think this book was a little messy, and at points, I would forget what the whole point of her going to the camp or whatever it was called.

7 – A “Meh” character that could easily be replaced

I know I keep referring to Sarah J. Maas’s books, but I guess I have just good examples. I think Manon or Chaol could be replaced. Or maybe just have different character personalities. Manon, I didn’t really see a point in adding her into the plot at all, so I never really cared about her story. And Chaol is just not good.

51stviwczzl-_sx338_bo1204203200_8 – An amazing book with a “Meh” cover

All the Ugly and Wonderful Things; I don’t particularly like this cover but I have no idea what it should be changed into.

My Boyfriend Guesses Book Plots

I have recently watched a YouTube video of this girl trying to get her boyfriend to guess the plot of popular books just by showing them the cover. So, I thought it’d be interesting to have my boyfriend do this challenge as well since he isn’t into books all too much. I think he did alright, but some were pretty far off.

51eQl+NfmFL._SX351_BO1,204,203,200_Book Title: One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus

His Response: I think the book is about someone, probably a friend, has died/been murdered. Everyone in the friend’s group has a story to tell but none of them exactly align with one another. So someone in the friend’s group had something to do with the death/murder, it could even be more than just one person even though the title says “One of Us is Lying”.

Correct Response: A Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars story, where these five students end up in detention, but in one mishap and one of them dies before the ambulance gets there. It doesn’t stop there, the four left from detention has been posted about their dirty secrets from the boy who died. So, the mystery is about who killed him because it was no accident.

 

61jxikrbn3L._SX334_BO1,204,203,200_Book Title: Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

His Response: I think this book is about living life dangerously. There is a quote on the top of the cover that says “The greatest risk is not taking one”. The artwork also has small sceneries of things from normally associated with vacations (i.e. airplanes, sea life, birds, tropical plants). So the characters are probably doing some crazy stuff feeling the thrill of any danger that awaits them.

Correct Response: Maddy has a disease where she’s allergic to the outside world, so she’s forced to be locked inside her house all the time. She sees that a family has moved in next door, and she has eye contact with a boy named, Olly. She predicts that she will end up falling in love, but she also feels held back from not being able to leave for the outside world.

 

81tWhFdQroLBook Title: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi 

His Response: I think this book is about a powerful woman, either a queen or a warrior of some kind, who has been corrupted. On the cover, there is a quote that is crossed out saying “My touch is lethal” but then says “My touch is power” after it. So she may have gone from wanting to use her “touch” as a way to show dominance and strike fear, but now she has the thirst for power.

Correct Response: Juliette is locked up because she has dangerous powers; her touch is lethal. She’s ready to escape and get revenge on Warner, the man responsible for her capture. She meets Adam, someone she’s forced to be roommates with, and she realizes that she knew him during school before it was destroyed, so they both plan for freedom.

 

514XGJE1F2L._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_Book Title: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh

His Response: Due to the quote on the top of the book saying, “She came for revenge. Will she stay for love?” I want to say that the book is about a woman who is going after someone for revenge but ends up falling in love with them instead. So she is stuck whether she would want to get her revenge (presumably kill the person) or pursue some kind of romantic relationship.

Correct Response: Whomever the Prince marries, she dies the next day. Shahrzad’s friend marries him, and unfortunately dies, and she takes upon the task of marrying the prince to get revenge for her death. Unusually, she wakes up the next morning and realizes that she hasn’t been killed. While she tries to avenge the death of her friend, she finds herself falling in love with the enemy.

 

51IbOdKBPcL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_Book Title: Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

His Response: I believe that this book is about someone who is being hunted down and has a very small chance of survival. The quote on the top of the book states, “A million ways to die. One way to live.” so whatever this person got themselves into, could be the end of them.

Correct Response: This is set in different zones, the one where Aria lives, basically inside a bubble, in Reverie. She must face a difficult decision once her mother goes missing. She meets Perry, a savage, living outside her dome in search of someone as well, and as long as they work together, the sooner they’ll find their answers.

Campfire Book Tag

I’m sorry for not posting a book tag last week, my laptop was having some issues and wanted to get them fixed before I go back to college so I didn’t have it for a week. I’m back now and decided to give all of you a somewhat exciting tag!

download1. Build the tent: a book you had to read that ended up being a drag.

This answer isn’t technically that I had to read but have wanted to for some time, and that was Perks of Being a Wallflower. If you’ve seen other posts of mine, you have seen that I quite dislike this book, it was a drag but also a disappointment

 

97815951480322. Build a Fire: A book you were proud of finishing

The Ember in the Ashes, I enjoyed this book a lot, but I thought this book was very slow paced that I felt as though it was really hard to push through the book, so I’m glad that I finished it

 

 

71Ha8X7iAjL3. Roasted Marshmallow: a mushy sweet book you couldn’t help but devour

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, I read this book in one sitting, and I loved it, and it was a very good LGBTQ+ novel about life and relationships

 

27833670 4. Gone Fishing: a book that had you hooked by the first chapter.

Dark Matter; This is a book I don’t think I’ve really dwelled upon on this blog, but I found this book very fascinating and mind compelling that I was immediately sucked into this story

This is my all time favorite book which is, All the Ugly and Wonderful Things. This book is way underhyped and needs to have more people read it

 

 

915XZDoqAQL7. The Night Sky: a book that made you think deeply about an aspect in the world

All We Have Left; I think this book opened my eyes more to how the world has really changed from the 9/11 attack and how society views different races, and other people’s way of living, and how it’s fairly negative in the aftermath.

 

51VFrzslYiL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_8. The Teardown: a book that’s ending was bittersweet

This is a recent read for me, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. This ending was how it should have been, it wrapped up nicely, but also left me feeling like I needed more, even though there wasn’t going to be.

Playlist Book Tag; Pray For the Wicked

Hello All! I’m back with another Book Tag!!!

I added youtube links to the song titles, so if you are unfamiliar with this particular album, or wanted to hear these songs again, you could.

518zN4ZSZiL._SX328_BO1,204,203,200_ *(F*** A) Silver Lining* – A book you didn’t expect to like but loved OR a not so great book that had a silver lining that kept you hooked

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue; I thought this was going to be just another mediocre book, even though this book was pretty hyped when I read it, but I’m thankful that I chose to read it anyway because it’s so good.

thWIV2VZWZ*(Say Amen) Saturday Night* – Either a book you were thankful was over OR A book you could spend all Saturday night reading

The book that I was thankful to be over has to be Empire of Storms because it was sooo boring and slow. I was dreading the 700-page book from the start because I feel like the longer her books have gotten, the drier the content seems to get. I did like most of what this book entitled, but it’s just too long.

51RofZNoPjL._SX328_BO1,204,203,200_*Hey Look Ma, I Made It* – A book you felt accomplished for finishing

This isn’t exactly what it’s asking but after reading We Were Liars, I’m grateful to have finished it, I was considering to DNF it in the beginning, but after that ending, I felt as though it was worth reading.

 

clockwork-angel*High Hopes* – A book you had high hopes for but fell flat

Clockwork Angel; I was so excited to read this because it was a different version of the shadowhunter world, it takes place in somewhere I like reading about and I love that time period. I still liked this series, it just wasn’t what I was expecting.

 

The Liar Society by Lisa and Laura Roecker*Roaring 20s* – A book that makes you feel nostalgic

The Liar Society, it makes me feel nostalgic in a sense of in my childhood, I read in spurts and so when I did read, I read a lot of books that I enjoyed. This book reminds of the few times I could be sucked into a book and was grasped to the end.

 

 

 

s-l300*Dancing’s Not A Crime* – A book that booktube makes you feel is a crime for loving/hating

I think the Shatter Me series has been getting less hype and more negative reviews lately so I feel like anyone of these books fit into this category.

 

city-of-heavenly-fire-cover*One of The Drunks* – A book you got drunk on that left you in a book hangover

Honestly, I’d have to say City of Bones or City of Heavenly Fire, because I got really sucked into them, and for the last book in the series nearly crushed me, and I didn’t know what to do with myself once it was over.

 

Believearexic_drawn maze concepts_final.indd*The Overpass* – A Book that deals with a difficult subject matter

Believ-a-rexic, this books has some heavy subject matter, it talks about eating disorders, suicide, substance abuse, and depression. I think it does a very well job of explaining all these heavy matters.

 

 

*King of The Clouds* – Your go-to book to lift you up when you’re feeling down

If I’m being honest, I don’t re-read books as often as I would like to, so when I’m feeling down, I probably would read the book I’m currently reading, or go on youtube or something.

harry_potter_and_the_sorcerers_stone*Old Fashioned* – Your favorite book published before the year 2000

This was pretty hard to find a book made before the 2000’s that I’ve actually read, but then I realized that I had read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, so there’s at least one that I’ve liked.

 

 

51stviwczzl-_sx338_bo1204203200_*Dying in LA* – A book that you love that is underhyped

All the Ugly and Wonderful Things. I know this book was, I believe one of 2016’s top book for Book of the Month, but I still don’t find many booktubers and bloggers mentioning this book.
