Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 Book Quotes (From This Year!)

Hey, ladies!

It's The Broke and The Bookish's Top Ten Tuesday! This week's theme is Top Quotes From Books You've Read This Year (Or So), and I've been looking forward to this one for weeks. My books are constantly dog eared, Post-It'ed, or highlighted with quotes that strike my fancy, and I had trouble narrowing it down to these!
Clearly, I went outside the typical 10, and these are mostly recent reads, with a few old favorites slipped in.

In no real order:


"That bitch!"
"She's nice enough, just -"
"Nice enough? I'm gonna put a hit out on her!"
"Okay, hold on there, Tony Soprano. No one's putting a hit on anyone." I paused." Just to be clear, you don't have those kinds of connections, do you?"
"No, but I have money! I'm sure I can buy some connections."

- The Fall Up by Aly Martinez


"My love... I want you free. I want you wild. I want you brave. I want you anyway I can get you. I want you now, and I want you for the rest of my life."

- The Hooker and The Hermit by L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid


I was head over heels in love with her. No, that didn't describe it. 
I was tear my fucking heart out and throw it to her, beg her to take it into hers. I was falling for the greatest heights, with no safety net below. 
I was giving everything of my own life for hers, giving up every inch of my soul so she could wear it proudly. 
I was a former king on my knees before the queen. A jester begging for a chance. 
I was powerless, helpless, and at her mercy. 

- The Dex-Files by Karina Halle

One of my all time favorites! 


I think that in the space between birth and death you can have one life, or you can have many. But in order to have many, you also need the strength to end the one that came before it. And therein lies the tricky part.

- King of Hearts by L.H. Cosway


Much slower, I turned around to see Vlad examining his fingernails, as if his hands weren't still ablaze in the flames that had blasted the ghoul's head off moments before.
"What the hell was that?" I gasped.
"Premature inflammation," He replied. "Happens sometimes. Very embarrassing; I don't like to talk about it."

- This Side of The Grave by Jeaniene Frost

I don't quite know why, but this bit makes me laugh my ass off every time I read it. 


"You're imagination both frightens and intrigues me."

- Racing The Sun by Karina Halle

That's one hell of a compliment. 


"I am forever yours, Kitten, in this life and the next."

- This Side of The Grave by Jeaniene Frost

Oh, Bones! *swoons*


"You're either on my side, by my side, or in my fucking way. Choose wisely."

- Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning

Can't remember which this one was from!


I knew I loved her - fiercely and with every part of my heart, even the broken parts, even the parts that felt unworthy and without value. And maybe those parts most of all.

- Archer's Voice by Mia Sheridan


"Why not live with the magic? Be a kid again, and believe in the fantastical. Life is more fun with a little smoke and mirrors."

- Six of Hearts by L.H. Cosway


She's lost in thought. I'm lost in her.

- Never Never (Part 1) by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher


"In the light of day, I can see all your cracks and your darkness and your flaws, and I fall in love with it all. And I hope you can fall in love with everything that I am, all that lurks in my dark, all that shines in my light. I want you to love every little piece of me, because it all belongs to you."

- The Play by Karina Halle

This book left me with 45 breathtaking quotes! It was so hard to pick just one. 


I moaned like a whore in church. To be fair, I'd never actually heard a whore moan in church, but I had a feeling it would sound a lot like the unholy sounds pouring forth from my mouth.

- Wallbanger by Alice Clayton


He looked at me and I shivered. I never get enough of him. Never will.
He lives. I breathe.
I. Want. Him. Always.
Fire to my ice. Ice to my fever.

- Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning

This one gives me chills. Gorgeous, especially after you read their story!

- The Bibliophile Babe


  1. " "What the hell was that?" I gasped.

  4. *snort* "Premature inflammation," He replied. "Happens sometimes. Very embarrassing; I don't like to talk about it." I forgot about that scene.
