Favourite Book Quotes I

Happy first day of March! To start off the new month, I have a special edition of Quote of the Week! I’m going to be putting several of my favourite book quotes on this post… I know I haven’t updated much with this feature so I’m hoping all of these will make up for the absence! So without further ado, here’s this week’s quotes:

You have so many extraordinary gifts; how can you expect to lead an ordinary life?

-Lousia May Alcott, Little Woman

Here’s another one from Little Woman:

Be comforted, dear soul! There is always light behind the clouds.

-Louisa May Alcott

Now, for some Anne of Green Gables! Here’s my all time favourite:

Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?

– L.M Montgomery

And this one is a quote that is so very true:

I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.

– L.M Montgomery

Of course we’re going to need some Pride and Prejudice quotes! I suppose it wouldn’t make do if we didn’t start with the novel’s opening line:

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possesion of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.

-Jane Austen

And here’s another one that I find sums up Mr. Darcy at the beginning of Pride and Prejudice…

She is tolerable; but not handsome enough.

-Jane Austen

So I think you’d understand when Elizabeth Bennet thought this of him:

A most disagreeable, horrid man, not at all worth pleasing

-Jane Austen

Phew, that’s a lot of quotes! And yet there is so many more I’d like to share! So I decided that this is only part one, and I focused on more classic novel quotes than others. Next time I’ll have more modern books, so watch out for part two!

February

Although this month is short I still made time for reading!  Here are February’s reads:

The Rule of Three, by Eric Walters

Atlantia, by Ally Condie

Along for the Ride, by Sarah Dessen

Zomboy, by Richard Scrimger

Keeping the Moon, by Sarah Dessen

Just Listen, by Sarah Dessen

These have been the first Dessen books I’ve read in 2015, and let me tell you, they did not disappoint! Along for the Ride by far is my favourite one. It was beautifully crafted and the plot just progressed so smoothly and wonderfully that I really couldn’t believe it! Amazing! But Keeping the Moon gave it a run for it’s money- I’d say it is right up there in my Sarah Dessen list (which I do have) along with Dreamland as well. While significantly smaller in size, the novel had a message I couldn’t get out of my head. It taught me the true meaning of friendship, and had me often thinking long after I had finished. Another point, Dessen! Just Listen was also good, but I felt some parts were slow and repetitive.

Zomboy was an interesting book, and refreshing and new. It was quick-paced but a nice change from novels that are often full of paragraphs that aren’t always necessary. And Eric Walters’, The Rule of Three, was a nice book, full of ideas I found quite genius. Although slow at first, I found myself ready for the sequel, Fight for Power.

Well, that’s all for this month. Hope March brings more sunny days and wonderful books!
