Top Ten Tuesday – Book Quotes

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.

Tess from The Fixer
