Quotables

In my reading, I’ve tried to be a lot more intentional about highlighting passages that speak to me. I’ve been terrible about this in the past. It’s been on a few of my lists over our three years that it’s something I wanted to get better about doing. So here I am. Sharing things I’ve loved […]

Lisa @ Bookish Broads - I love finding great quotes! And as someone who hasn’t read any of these books, I am especially drawn to them now!

Alexa S. - Magan, what PHENOMENAL quotables you’ve included in your post today! I’ve actually read every single one of these books, so I know how they fit in the context of each story. But also, they’re all things I personally relate to and think about in real life! In particular, I could focus on the first – about love, and how it changes. I’d like to think it grows, and it’s a choice to grow together or apart in spite of whatever external things come your way! Loved this post, and hope you share more quotables!

Asheley (@BookwormAsheley) - These are so fantastic. About that first one, it just gripped me so hard just now because YES love can go away but it can also be restored! How wonderful and scary and exciting and awesome! I love this. So hard. Thanks for sharing it.

C.M. Boers - I love taking quotes out of books! Though I haven’t been good at it either. Sometimes I don’t even think about it! Then I stumble upon a commonly highlighted quote when I’m reading and think “yes!” Great idea to lay them all out!

Jessica - I love these quotes! I totally agree that To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before has so many great quotes. I don’t highlight passages but I love placing mini stickies on the page where the quote I like is.

I love A Great and Terrible Beauty and there’s just so many great quotes in the book such as, “We are all unkind from time to time. We all do things we desperately wish we could undo. Those regrets just become part of who we are, along with everything else. To spend time trying to change that, well, it’s like chasing clouds.”.

Brianna - I love highlighting passages in books. I’ve done it a half-dozen times with the book I’m reading now and that’s just in chapter one. It’s not really because the passages speak to me for any particular reason, but because the writing is so gorgeous and I aspire to write like that.

Lauren at Bookmark Lit - Love all of these quotes!! I’ve read a few of the books and have the others on my TBR, so I guess I’m headed in the right direction 🙂

Rebecca - Love all of these and hearing why you loved them, too. You definitely make me want to go read them and discover them myself, on the page. Cool post 🙂
