Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Book Quotes

Hey Pals!! Today, I am participating, for the first time, in Top Ten Tuesday πŸ˜‰.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week, we have to talk about 10 of our favorite things related to books. This week’s topic is:

Favorite Quotes

Here are some of my favorite book quotes, all aren’t necessarily quotes, some are just great lines:

Note: There might be minor/major spoilers here and there as a few of these quotes are the last lines in the books so make sure to skip that quote to avoid getting spoiled.

There are some things you can’t share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them.

Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.

I am haunted by humans.

“Let us find the dam snack bar,” Zoe said.

“Bob says hello,” He told the stars.

The Argo II sailed into the night.

“Fifteen men on the dead man’s chest

Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!

Drink and the devil had done for the rest

Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!”

Suddenly, I turn to him and toss it in his direction. “And may the odds–” I say. I throw it high so he has plenty of time to decide whether to knock it aside or accept it.

Gale’s eyes train on me, not the berry, but at the last moment, he opens his mouth and catches it. He chews, swallows, and there’s a long pause before he says, “–be ever in your favor.” But he does say it.

A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, and the one who doesn’t read, lives just one.

I haven’t read any books in A Song of Ice and Fire series but obviously, this quote is known to a wide audience of readers, including me.

Beware of Silas Scratch

And lastly, to end it with the final lines of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, I have:

The scar had not pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well.

Let me know down below one of your all-time favorite bookish quotes. Hope you enjoyed reading mine. I absolutely adore these quotes/lines/moments/come-on-you-get-it.

That’s it then. Thanks for reading. Stay safe. Ciao!!



Welcome to my site where I talk about all things bookish and from time to time, put my writing skills to test.

  1. These lines are really great! I loved the line from The Book Thief, it has many interesting ones! Death is so interesting and humorous at times. 😊

  2. I love this and will probably do it just not on Tuesday! I love the dam snack bar! Some of my favorites are:
    β€œ with great power comes the great need to take a nap”
    β€œ never trust a duck”
    β€œShadow hunters: looking better in black than the widows of our enemies since 1234”

  3. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times

    It is so much easier think of my favorite musical theatre quotes than bookish quotes. However, that first line from Tale of Two Cities is incredible

      1. Sometimes the reason why you love a book is because you just knew it was a good book. I don’t exactly know why I loved Tale of Two Cities.

  4. Happy that I found your blog! I was a voracious reader but after I had my kid that has become a long lost habit. Would love book recommendations. Also how did you like the game of thrones book?

      1. My favourite genres are fantasy, drama, mythological fictions and thrillers. And in this quarantine I would also love some self help book recommendations. Thanks NehalπŸ₯°

      2. I love fantasy too 😍
        I think for fantasy you should check out Harry Potter (sorry, if you’ve already read that, it’s too popular) and The Uglies Trilogy by Scott Westerfeld.
        Mythological fiction = Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. I can’t recommend this book highly enough, it is just spellbinding, u should try the audiobook narrated by the author himself.
        Anything my Rick Riordan practically comes under this too:
        Egyptian Mythology- Kane chronicles
        Norse- magnus chase
        Greek – Percy Jackson
        And I’m sorry, I don’t read self-help.
        I have a non fiction recommendation though – The girl with seven names.

  5. I have read most of these Books. And reading these evergreen quotes had refreshed my memory. I actually felt that butterfly feeling in my stomach whenever I complete reading a great novel. Nehal, Thanks for the wonderful post.

  6. Woah!
    I must say that it’s a great collection. Btw, i’m not a regular book reader. But, a regular blogs/articles reader and i think, (in this list) the best 3 quote/lines are, one from the “Game of Thrones,” 2nd from “The Book Thief” and 3rd from the “Mockingjay.”

    Keep sharing. ✌😌
