There’s nothing like a solid top-5 post. This week, I’m going to do top-5 lines.
5.“My life is four walls of missed opportunities poured in concrete molds.” – Shatter Me, Juliette.
When I started writing this post I had to read through a bunch of the quotes from Shatter Me and it really hurt me to only pick one because Tahereh Mafi is such a beautiful writer. Everything she writes has some kind of lyrical component that just builds the story so well.
4. “Thomas! We must away at once to the nearest brothel! I seek scandal and low companionship.” – The Infernal Devices, Will Herondale.
I love Jem. But Will was always my boy and it’s because of exchanges like this one.
3. “I apologize for shooting you in the leg. I was myself entirely.” – A Darker Shade of Magic, Lila Bard.
You guys are going to start seeing a pattern with my favorite quotes. All these characters are the snarkiest of the snark.
2. “Break the chains, my love.” – Red Rising, Eo
Excuse me a minute while I sob. The Red Rising trilogy was everything in my life for a few months and Darrow, Sevro and the rest of the Howlers are a fictional family I would 100 percent join if at all possible.
1. “No one was my master— but I might be master of everything, if I wished. If I dared.” – A Court of Mist and Fury, Feyre.
First off. If you expected any other book then you obviously do not know me/you haven’t read this book. Anyway, nobody. NOBODY understands my love of Feyre after her growth from A Court of Thorns and Roses to A Court of Mist and Fury. This quote is exactly why I love her.
