Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Top Ten Book Quotes
“Have you fallen in love with the wrong person yet?'
Jace said, "Unfortunately, Lady of the Haven, my one true love remains myself."
..."At least," she said, "you don't have to worry about rejection, Jace Wayland."
"Not necessarily. I turn myself down occasionally, just to keep it interesting.”
- City of Bones, Cassandra Clare
LOL, Jace is hilarious!
“Remember, we're madly in love, so it's all right to kiss me anytime you feel like it.”
- The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins
This pretty much sums up Katniss' and Peeta's relationship!
“What do you eat?"
"Baby bunnies." She narrowed her eyes, so I grinned and said, "Adult bunnies, too. I'm an equal-opportunity bunny-eater.”
- Shiver, Maggie Stiefvater
This quote is cute and hilarious, even though I'm a vegetarian.
“I fell for her in summer, my lovely summer girl,
From summer she is made, my lovely summer girl,
I’d love to spend a winter with my lovely summer girl,
But I’m never warm enough for my lovely summer girl,
It’s summer when she smiles, I’m laughing like a child,
It’s the summer of our lives; we’ll contain it for a while
She holds the heat, the breeze of summer in the circle of her hand
I’d be happy with this summer if it’s all we ever had.” 
-  Shiver, Maggie Steifvater
Maggie's books are just so quote worthy! If this song was one iTunes I would download it in a heartbeat!
“You are okay?" he asked. "Not eaten by monsters?"
"Not even a little bit." I showed him that I still had both arms and both legs, and Tyson clapped happily.
"Yay!" he said. "Now we can eat peanut butter sandwiches and ride fish ponies! We can fight monsters and see Annabeth and make things go BOOM!"
I hoped he didn't mean all at the same time, but I told him absolutely, we'd have a lot of fun this summer.” 
- Battle of the Labyrinth, Rick Riordan
Rick Riordan's books are so quote worthy!
“Laurel, David? Would you like to share the joke with the rest of the class?" he asked, one hand on his skinny hip.
"No, sir," David said. "But thank you for asking." The students around them laughed, but Mr. james didn't look pleased. Laurel leaned back and grinned. David, one. Teacher who wishes he was as smart as David? Zero”
- Wings, Aprilynne Pike
Ever since I've read this quote I've wanted to say it in class, lol. *talks loudly during a lesson*
“You know," Gabriel said, "there was a time I thought we could be friends, Will."
"There was a time I thought I was a ferret," Will said, "but that turned out to be the opium haze. Did you know it had that effect? Because I didn't.”
-  Clockwork Angel, Cassandra Clare
Will is like the 19th century version of Jace. So sarcastic and witty!
“So it's you and a syringe against the Capitol? See, this is why no one lets you make the plans.” 
- Catching Fire, Suzanne Collins
Haymitch is so mean but yet so funny!
“Do you remember me telling you we are practicing non-verbal spells, Potter?"
"Yes," said Harry stiffly.
"Yes, sir."
"There's no need to call me "sir" Professor."
The words had escaped him before he knew what he was saying.”
- Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, J.K. Rowling
“What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again.”
- Mockingjay, Suzanne Collins


  1. Some of these quotes are my favorites as well! Great Post!

  2. Love your HG books quotes. I loved all of those as well! Peeta and Haymitch both provided some great lines.

    And I haven't read the Cassandra Clare books yet (itching to start them, just haven't gotten the opportunity yet), but those quotes make me want to read them even more! I love when characters have a good sense of humor.

    Here's my Top 10 Tuesday!

  3. Those are all good. I figured Harry Potter would be a winner for most b/c hey I have tons of quotes I love from them, so I decided to go with books less known. Thanks for posting one though. :o) Here are my My Top Ten
