That's all I'm going to include in this post!  There are only quotes for the books I've posted reviews for because I always go through and like quotes while I'm writing my review.  So no Queen of Shadows yet (the review is taking so long to write!) but soon!

What are some of your favorite quotes?

    1. Actually I don't really either! I only go back and reread for quotes if the quote I really liked wasn't on the list on Goodreads... I'm pretty terrible about keeping notes while I reading... :D

    1. I really like it too! It's definitely something I strive for - one of my favorite sayings is "no one can hurt you without your consent".

  5. I really need to get better at keeping track of quotes that I like! I always forget to put them down! That quote from Breathe, Annie, Breathe was amazing. I actually still remember reading it and saying to myself, "Now I know for sure that he loves her." Great post and even greater quotes! :)
