Top Ten Tuesday

Quotes That Are Stuck in My Mind

Hello! Welcome to this week’s Top Ten TuesdayTop Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s prompt is all about the memorable things that book characters have said. I have to admit that I do like collecting book quotes. But, despite it. There are only a couple of quotes that had managed to get stuck in my mind. Let’s begin.
