Top Ten Tuesday | Favourite Bookish Quotes


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature that highlights ten books that all relate to a certain topic and is  hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. 

This Weeks Topic Is...

Favourite Book Quotes and whilst I bookmark a lot of quotes, I don't tend to save a lot of them so I had to do some more googling for this topic. So here are a selection of quotes that I feel speak to the bookworm in all of us.
"The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives" - Matilda by Roald Dahl

“Books aren't interested in who is reading them... A book will welcome any reader; any age, any background, any point of view. Books don't care if you can't understand every word in them, or if you want to skip bits or reread bits. Books welcome everyone who wants to explore them, and thankfully no one has ever worked out a way to stop that.” - Tilly and the Lost Fairytales by Anna James 

“My experience of life is that it is not divided up into genres; it’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you're lucky.” - Alan Moore 

“Our story has three parts: a beginning, a middle, and an end. And although this is the way all stories unfold, I still can't believe that ours didn't go on forever.” - Dear John by Nicholas Sparks 


 “And all the books you've read have been read by other people. And all the songs you've loved have been heard by other people. And that girl that's pretty to you is pretty to other people. and that if you looked at these facts when you were happy, you would feel great because you are describing 'unity.” - The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky 

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” - Coraline by Neil Gaiman

“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! -- When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.” - Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen


 “Where is human nature so weak as in the bookstore?” - Henry Ward Beecherr

“I spent my life folded between the pages of books. In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.” - Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

“I read a book one day and my whole life was changed.” - The New Life by Orhan Pamuk
