Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

I’ve talked about why I don’t typically set a TBR list. So I like to think of this as a wish list of books I’d like to read in the Summer.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

Happy Tuesday! Since my last post, I’ve gone and twisted my bad knee again. Resting the knee meant that I had plenty of time to search through my quote book for this weeks topic. This was such a hard topic, not because I couldn’t find anything, but because there were too many to choose from. The quotes I’ve chosen today are ones that provoked a reaction from me. Whether it be the emotion of the moment, or the way I could relate to it. Some also make great life mantras, while others are simply just an epic quote. Here are 10 of my favourite book quotes.
