My top 6 favorite book quotes


The world will be saved and remade by the dreamers. – Aelin

It was really hard for me to pick just one quote from ToG series because Sarah J. Maas is a beautiful writer. I find this particular quote to be incredibly inspiring. I even have it on a coffee mug and bookmark.

 

When you spend so long trapped in darkness, Lucien, you find that the darkness begins to stare back. – Feyre

I also had a hard time picking just one quote from ACoTaR. I chose this one because it’s a perfect example of how badass Feyre is. Throughout A Court of Mist and Fury she grew in strength and confidence and decided she’d never be a prisoner again. No one puts Feyre in the corner!

Dark times lie ahead of us and there will be a time when we must choose between what is easy and what is right. – Dumbledore

Even though I still hold a big grudge against Dumbledore, and the shitty things he did and hid, I acknowledge that he had wise things to say and teach.

This world, it breathes you in … it knows you, and then it breathes you out again, shares you. – Dihara

This line is simply beautiful. Dihara was very wise and aggravatingly liked to talk in riddles.

May the odds be ever in your favor. – Effie Trinket

This line is just so iconic I couldn’t not add it.

I want to convince you to design a smile just for me. – Warner

I love Warner so much. His tragic childhood, the connection he makes with Juliette, the fact that he lays his love all out on the table for Juliette. This is only one line in a swoon-y speech he makes to Juliette.

My top 4 favorite book womances


Lissa and Rose

Rose has been training to become Lissa’s personal bodyguard since she was a child. She’s expected to protect Lissa with her life which she doesn’t mind, because she loves Lissa like a sister and would gladly make the sacrifice for her. Then you have Lissa, a royal, magic-wielding vampire who is pissed at society because they demand that she be delicate and meek, and let all her non-magic-wielding bodyguards (also known as guardians) take on all the bad guys. Lissa wants to be bad ass too with magic and muscles and fight beside Rose whenever those bad guys show up – spoiler alert – they show up a lot.


Aelin and Lysandra

These two HATED each other in the beginning. They fought constantly! They screamed, swore, scuffled across the floors. Aelin even threw a knife at Lysandra’s head once just to scare her. When these two gals discovered that they had been pitted against each other from the beginning they joined forces. They discovered that they had a lot more in common than either one realized and started helping each other work through emotional baggage. Together, these two women kick a lot of ass and don’t put up with any male b*llshit

Lia and Pauline

Lia’s a princess and Pauline’s a maid, even though there’s a huge gap in the classes, it doesn’t stop their friendship from blossoming. Pauline risks her life to help Lia escape an unwanted marriage, and later on Lia gives herself up so Pauline will be safe. These two stick together through thick and thin.


Alosa and her crew

Last but not least, I choose Alosa and her entire female pirate crew. I can’t just pick one or two of the women in the crew, because they’re all willing to sacrifice their lives for one another. They all love, respect, and protect each other. This book makes me wish I had my own ship and crew full of supportive, bad ass women to go on adventures with.

My top 3 auto-buy authors


Sarah J. Maas
Both of Maas’ high fantasy series are on my list of top-5 favorite series of all time. A Court of Thorns and Roses has a thrilling, sexy, fiery romance that will forever ruin relationships for me, because no guy will ever measure up to the perfect specimen known as Rhysand. Throne of Glass has nearly a dozen regular, main/supporting characters, and I love every single one of them. None of them are forgotten because they’re all unique and important to the overall story. I root for them, I cry for them, they piss me off, they make me laugh. I wouldn’t change or trade any of them.

Kasie West
This author is a contemporary-writing machine! I’ve lost track of how many books she has published now. I’m super impressed that all her books have new characters and original plots. Although I like some of her books more than others, like By Your Side and The Fill-In Boyfriend, I have yet to dislike any of them.

Cassandra Clare
I liked The Mortal Instrument series and I LOVED The Infernal Devices. The Dark Artifices is also extremely good. I think Clare’s writing has continued to improve throughout the years and now I automatically buy her books because I’m confident I’ll love anything she writes.

My Top 5 Favorite Book Bromances


Throne of Glass
Chaol and Dorian have been best friends since childhood. Chaol willingly gave up his claim to lordship to be a member of the royal guard to protect Dorian. Multiple times Dorian has stood-up to his terrifying, cruel father for Chaol’s sake. Blood doesn’t make you brothers, but love, kindness, acceptance, sacrifices do.

A Court of Thorns and Roses
Rhysand, Cassian and Azriel, or as I refer to them “the three musketeers”, are childhood friends who always have each others’ backs. They always face problems together and are willing to make any sacrifice for each other. When they’re not fighting battles you can find them hitting the clubs or spending weekends in a secluded cabin in the mountains, playing games, drinking, and hunting.

Iron Fey
Puck and Ash were at odds for so long, but eventually these two archrivals kissed and made up (not literally) in The Iron Knight. Puck is a trickster who lightens up a room and likes to have fun. Ash is broody, serious, and a bit uptight. They balance each other out perfectly.

Harry Potter
Harry’s always sticking up for Ron when the Slytherins are picking on him, and Ron’s always accompanying Harry on dangerous missions like, oh yeah, fighting the sadistic, murderer, Voldemort. Their friendship is occasionally rocky, but in the end they always work it out.

Lord of the Rings
What bromance is more iconic than Frodo and Sam?! When Frodo decides to travel to the most dangerous place on Middle Earth with the most dangerous weapon of all time while avoiding the most dangerous being of all time, Sam’s like – sign me up! Sam’s got so much heart and never backs down. Honestly, now that I think of it – Frodo who? – Sam is totally the hero of this series.
