  1. Great collection of quotes! Really like the Warm Bodies quote, as I've felt that way a few times and I'm not even a zombie! lol

    1. Me, too! There are a lot of quotes like this in Warm Bodies. It's one of the reasons why I loved the book.

  2. Loved the quotes from Across a Star Swept Sea and Golden! These two are two of my really favorite writers because their writing just reach out to you. Great graphics, too!

    1. I agree; I loved Across a Star Swept Sea and Golden so much. And thank you!

  3. I'm ashamed to say I need to read all of these still! They all sound fabulous though so at least I have something to look forward to. :)

  4. GOLDEN! OMG. That is one of my favorite books. I had so many feels in that book and I wish more than anything I had a copy of it when I was navigating high school. I also am really interested in What Happens Next- I LOVED that quote.

  5. I love the passages you quoted! I hope to read these books for I never heard of them. Well, expect Golden and Warm Bodies. I have not read the book of Warm Bodies but I have watches the movie. :)

  6. Great quotes! I really loved the quotes from What Happens Next, Across a Star-Swept Sea and Golden. I'll have to add a few new books to my TBR. I've been planning on reading Warm Bodies, but haven't gotten to it. I'll have to get it now, though. I think everyone can recognize that feeling.

    1. You should! Warm Bodies has really great writing (and the main character is a zombie) :D


Please feel free to leave comments! I love knowing your thoughts and I will try to respond as much as I can. Don't worry! I don't bite. Just a little reminder, this blog is award free. Thank you and ENJOY! :)
