Happy blogaversary!

My favorite book quote . . . tough question. I don't think I have one? I mean, I have a file full of quotes that I like, but there's not one floating to my mind.

Jennifer Messerschmidt said...

Super congrats and happy blogoversary!

Awww man favorite quote is hard...This was the first one under my goodreads quotes I found so I'll go with it. Love Tod & Kaylee!

“But my hands are in the right place."
"Heart," I corrected. "Your heart's in the right place."
"Yeah, but my hands are in an even better place."
And so they were.

Congratulations and thanks for the great giveaway. I can't really say what my favorite book quote ever is, I wouldn't know where to begin, but my favorite this week is from Madly by M. Leighton. Madly is talking about Jackson and says, "I drank him in like the desert drinks the rain - hungrily. I doubted there was a more perfect specimen of a man in all the world."

Happy Blogoversary Nea!!!!!!!! One of my favorite quotes (from my favorite middle school book- Hidden Talents by David Lubar) is "Martin Mindmaster, Conqueror of the Universe. ... With his faitful sidekick, ucchini, who can read the minds of vegetables and fruits." It always causes me to laugh. :)

The Story Queen said...

CONGRATULATIONS, NEA!!! <3 1 year is such an AMAZING achievement, I hope that you've enjoyed it so far! :) Time to celebrate with some relaxation and cake if you ask me.

My faaavourite quote? As in JUST ONE? Okay, I've picked this one officially! "Of house-elves and children's tales, of love, loyalty, and innocence, Voldemort knows and understands nothing. Nothing. That they all have a power beyond his own, a power beyond the reach of any magic, is a truth he has never grasped." From Harry Potter, of course :)

Thanks for the awesome giveaway and happy blogoversary! <3

Happy Blogoversary!
My favorite quote is:

"Love is not the absence of logic
but logic examined and recalculated
heated and curved to fit
inside the contours of the heart"
- Easy by Tammara Webber

Neeeaaa! I love your name since it rhymes with mine ;) Congratulations on your blogoversary! May I just also say that you have an awesome taste in books? Jellicoe Road is one of my all-time favorites so I know you also love this quote:
“What do you want from me?" he asks.
What I want from every person in my life, I want to tell him.
― Melina Marchetta, Jellicoe Road

Happy blogoversary!! *throws paper confetti in the air*
one of my favorite quotes would be:
“I'm in love with you," he said quietly.

"Augustus," I said.

"I am," he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. "I'm in love with you, and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
-John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Happy Blogoversary!!!

My favorite quote:
“And now I’m looking at you,” he said, “and you’re asking me if I still want you, as if I could stop loving you. As if I would want to give up the thing that makes me stronger than anything else ever has. I never dared give much of myself to anyone before – bits of myself to the Lightwoods, to Isabelle and Alec, but it took years to do it – but, Clary, since the first time I saw you, I have belonged to you completely. I still do. If you want me.”
― Cassandra Clare, City of Glass(Jace, LOve of my life)

One of my all time favorite quote is this one:

"It's not the face, but the expressions on it. It's not the voice, but what you say. It's not how you look in that body, but the things you do with it. You are beautiful."
-The Host by Stephenie Meyer

Happy Blogoversary! :]

Kayla said...

I love this quote from Jack Kerouac's On the Road:

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing but burn, burn, burn like fabulous roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes 'Awww'"

Aww, Congratulations, Nea! 1 Year is sooo exciting and definitely something to be proud of! You're an awesome blogger and I hope you stay around for many, many times to come! <333

Jen R. said...

CONGRATS!!! :D Wow, that's a long time! :)

Thanks for the giveaway too! Here's my favorite quote from Vampire Academy. It's so sweet! :)

"Because we can't be together."

"Because of the age thing, right?" I asked. "Because you're my mentor?"

His fingertip gently wiped away a tear that had escaped down my cheek. "That's part of it," he said. "But also, well, you and I will both be Lissa's guardians someday. I need to protect her at all costs. If a pack of Strigoi come, I need to throw my body between them and her."

"I know that. Of course that's what you have to do."

"No. If I let myself love you, I won't throw myself in front of her. I'll throw myself in front of you."

*cue swooning*

Congrats on your blogoversary! What a great accomplishment! As for my favorite book quote, it's impossible to just pick one! I have a whole notebook full of favorites, and this is one of them and thanks for the giveaway opportunity:

"This is our story to tell. He says it in his Ten Commandments way and it hits me that way: profoundly. You'd think for all the reading I do, I would have thought about this before, but I haven't. I've never once thought about the interpretative, the story telling aspect of life, of my life. I always felt like I was in a story, yes, but not like I was the author of it, or like I had any say in its telling whatsoever. You can tell your story any way you damn well please. It's your solo."
~Jandy Nelson, The Sky is Everwhere

my favorite quotes:
“There is no pretending," Jace said with absolute clarity. "I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there is life after that, I'll love you then.”
― Cassandra Clare, City of Glass

thanks for the giveaway

This is probably one of my fave quotes in a book I've read
“The boy never cried again, and he never forgot what he'd learned: that to love is to destroy, and that to be loved is to be the one destroyed.”
― Cassandra Clare

Thanks for the giveaway :))

Faye (Daydreaming_Star) said...

But still, that is awesome!

Favourite book quote ever though? It was a tough choice - like really tough, and it may not be my favourite book quote ever but it's definitely right up there!

"I don't know, Dad," I sighed, "I'm not sure I can write a story."
"Ah, now, that's nonsense. Anyone can write a story. It's the easiest thing in the world. How else do you think I make a living out of it? All you have to do is tell the truth, tell it like it was."
"But I don't know how it was, I don't know all the details, the facts-"
"Stories aren't facts, Cait, they're not details. Stories are feelings. You've got feelings, haven't you?"
"Too many." I said.
"Well, that's all you need." He put his hand on mine. "Cry yourself a story, love. It works. Believe me."
- Kevin Brooks, Lucas

It is one of my ultimate books of all time.
