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 […]

Goodbye to 2014 + End of Year Book Survey | Magan - […] did a post with a few of my favorite ones! Here’s one I particularly […]

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!

November 19, 2014 - 7:44 pm

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!

November 19, 2014 - 11:39 am

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.

November 19, 2014 - 10:36 am

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 🙂

November 19, 2014 - 9:38 am

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 🙂

Top 10 Tuesday: Estelle’s Fav Quotes from Books

I’m that person who is always jotting lyrics from songs and quotes from books onto tiny pieces of paper and stuffing them in my purse. Or taking pictures of book pages with my iPhone. That’s a new obsession. Proof: ^ I was reading You Have Seven Messages on a road trip to Connecticut and it […]

Vicky - Love number 4! It`s true, have to be careful what thoughts go through you…

December 20, 2012 - 9:04 am

Estelle: 2012 End of the Year Survey (Yay!) - […] Surprisingly, the most popular post I wrote was about my favorite book quotes. […]

June 18, 2012 - 12:20 pm

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - What a beautiful collection of quotes! I loved every single one of them, although the one from Jennifer E. Smith is the most gorgeous to me 🙂

May 8, 2012 - 9:30 pm

Jamie - LOVE LOVE LOVE your list! Before I elaborate, that is an insanely awesome idea to take a pic with your phone. GENIUS. I always just have tiny post it notes and then transfer them into my quote notebook at a later date but I ALWAYS have my phone on me..so that’s a win!

Haven’t heard of the Comeback Season but I love that quote! That Let It Snow one…I probably completely brushed passed that when I read that book…it’s wonderful and so true! And Catcher in the Rye!! I love Salinger hardcore.

Excellent list, love.

May 8, 2012 - 8:00 pm

Katie H. - LOVE Emily Giffin. Although my favorites were Something Borrowed & Blue.

May 8, 2012 - 7:48 pm

Laura @ The Traveling Owl - The quote from Charlotte’s Web is always guaranteed to bring a smile to my face.

Excellent list!

VeganYANerds - I’m so bad at remembering quotes, I need to write them down or take a photo, clever idea!

I love that you included one from Perfect Fifths and Charlotte’s Web, so sweet!

May 8, 2012 - 5:11 pm

BarefootMedStudent - I also take pictures of quotes when I don’t have time (or energy, or a pen) to write them down! Also, great list.

I tried something different with my quotes – you’re welcome to visit 🙂

May 8, 2012 - 4:51 pm

Lauren@The Housework Can Wait - Love, love, love the Emily Griffin quote. It’s so good. I haven’t read many of your books, but I love all the quotes.

Here’s my TTT!

May 8, 2012 - 4:12 pm

Angela @ AJ Arndt Books Blog - I’m pretty sure this was my favorite Top Ten topic as well. I really like your quote from Catcher in the Rye 🙂

May 8, 2012 - 3:46 pm

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - LOVE THE ONE YOU’RE WITH! I swear, I like you more & more every time I read another one of your posts. That quote is one of my absolute favorites! I have written down so many love quotes over the years, but that is one of the only ones that I think truly captures what real love looks like in the long run. Most books only talk about the falling in love part – not about staying in love. And I just adore that quote because it’s so realistic. Okay, I’m stopping now, I promise.

EXCEPT I take pictures of book pages with my iPhone, too!! Haha 🙂

May 8, 2012 - 2:14 pm

Jess @ Gone with the Words - I really love this list, Estelle…like, REALLY! EFF YEAH! I love that God Shaped Hole one and Love the One You’re With.

May 8, 2012 - 1:53 pm

Pepca - Interesting selection! I love number 4!

May 8, 2012 - 12:07 pm

Heather - LOVE #5 especially as relates to marriage though there’s passion involved too. 😉

May 8, 2012 - 11:30 am

kit - Love the quotation from The Catcher in the Rye, one of my all-time favourite books. Great list!

May 8, 2012 - 9:59 am

Nicole - You’re a fan of sappy quotes. But so am I. 🙂 Loved the one from Perfect Fifths!

May 8, 2012 - 9:56 am

Anna - JESSICA DARLING HAIKU FTW!

May 8, 2012 - 9:35 am

Estelle - Elena, GET ON IT. 😉 Yes, I really think you would appreciate Tiffanie’s writing a lot. Hope you can find a copy of GSH.

May 8, 2012 - 9:28 am

elena - Shamefully, I’ve only read two books from this list! MUST RECTIFY, especially since the quotes you picked are so good. I need to read God-Shaped Hole, I remember you rec’ing it recently. 7 is really great advice!

May 8, 2012 - 8:47 am

WickedWillow - Ah. Such a good collection. Love the John Green one. Haven’t read Let It Snow yet, but I can see awesome JG is still awesome.
The Charlottes Web and Catcher in the Rye are great too!

Good quotes make me happy. 🙂
