This week’s theme was beach reads, but I actually did beach reads for Top 5 Wednesday a few weeks ago.  You can read that post here →  Top 5 Wednesday: Summer Reads

INSTEAD I am going to do another past theme this week.  I decided to do a little spin off of the favorite book quotes and narrow it down to favorite book quotes of recent reads…

“…when a beating hear stopped, there was no black or white, only blood-red.  The flesh was equal.  It was the character of a man that made him better or worse.”

The Mapmaker’s Children

“This is a place of mystery, Daniel, a sanctuary.  Every book, every volume you see here has a soul.  The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it.  Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.”

The Shadow of the Wind

“I’m not afraid of dying. But I am afraid of dying here.” She swept her hand over the room, the tavern, the city. “I’d rather die on an adventure than live standing still.”

  • A Darker Shade of Magic

I wanted someone to love me because of my mind and accomplishments, not despite them.”

“Quinn had a stage-five meltdown on the front stoop because I again refused to patronize the Mister Softee ice cream truck that followed us home from the park like a f*ing stalker.  (I’m sorry, but that Mister Softee driver has caused more family strife than a Vegas bachelor party)”

Keep Me Posted

You can read my review → Book Review: Keep Me Posted


“A good novelist does not lead his characters, he follows them. A good novelist does not create events, he watches them happen and then writes down what he sees.”

Finders Keepers 

516Mh2hD+OL._SX274_BO1,204,203,200_Amazon // Goodreads

You can read my review here → Book Review: Finders Keepers by Stephen King


“For nonreaders, life is simply what they touch and see, not what they feel when they open the pages of a play and are transported to the Forest of Arden or Illyria.  Where the world is full of a thousand colors for those who love books, I suspect it is simply black and gray to everyone else.  A tree is a tree to them; it is never a magical doorway to another world populated with beings that don’t exist here.”

Rebel Queen

You can read my review here → Book Review: Rebel Queen by Michelle Moran


“The curse is not that we cannot choose our Fate.  The curse, the curse we all live under, is that we can.”

– The Queen of the Night

You can read my review here → Book Review: The Queen of the Night by Alexander Chee


“Every religion lies. Every moral precept is a delusion. Even the stars are a mirage. The truth is darkness, and the only thing that matters is making a statement before one enters it. Cutting the skin of the world and leaving a scar. That’s all history is, after all: scar tissue.”

Mr. Mercedes

You can read my review here → Book Review: Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King


“Half an hour later he’s all fluffy and clean and smiling and eating sandwiches.  Baths are like Valium for four-year-olds.”

Finding Audrey
