Top Ten Quotes I Loved From Books I Read In The Past Year Or So: 

1. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

“Libraries were full of ideas–perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.”

2. Compulsion by Martina Boone

3. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

“For a moment the image before us is frozen: our world, our lives, reduced to a handful of broken stars half lost in uncharted space. Then it’s gone, the view swallowed by the hyperspace winds streaming past, blue-green auroras wiping the after-images away. Until all that’s left is us.”

4. The Book of Ivy by Amy Engel

5. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

7. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

8. The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey

9. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

10. Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard
