Hi friends, and welcome to 2019! Today is Tuesday, so we are going to do the Top Ten Tuesday meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. Today’s topic is actually: Top Ten Books I Read in 2018, but since I’ve already done something similar, I’m going to do a topic I missed: Book Quotes.
Sloane from The Naturals
Sloane slipped an arm around my waist. “There are fourteen varieties of hugs,” she said. “This is one of them.”
Kat from Heist Society
It is an occupational hazard that anyone who has spent her life learning how to lie eventually becomes bad at telling the truth.
Asher from The Fixer
“I have a passing fondness for explosions.”
Tess from The Fixer
“There are a lot of ways to castrate a bull,” I said, my words deliberate and slow. “You can band the balls off, so they shrivel up and die. Or you can take a knife, and slide it just so.” I demonstrated with my free hand. “I grew up on a ranch. I know a lot about castrating bulls.”
Rachel from Guilt by Association
“What can I do for you, Detective?’ he said cheerily, smiling and nodding at Bailey.
What was I, chopped liver? I had a badge too. Maybe I should’ve shown it to him. Maybe I should’ve shown him my gun too.”
Now for some quotes from my favorite authors!
Y. S. Lee, Author
“Read as widely and as deeply as you can. You have to be a reader before you can be a writer.”
Ally Carter, Author
“Not knowing you can’t do something, is sometimes all it takes to do it.”
Lisa Scottoline, Author
What I’m doing is writing stories about women who care about justice. They are women who think about the difference between right and wrong, what’s legal and illegal, ethical and unethical, moral and immoral.
David Baldacci, Author
Fiction is sort of a way to set the record straight, and let people at least believe that justice can be achieved and the right outcomes can occur.
Charlotte Bronte, Author
Life is so constructed, that the event does not, cannot, will not, match the expectation.
I need Charlotte Bronte’s quote hung up on a wall in my room, LOL.
