Top Ten Tuesday | Book Quotes of 2015

The theme of this week’s Top Ten Tuesday (sponsored by The Broke and the Bookish), is my favorite quotes from books I’ve read in 2015. This was a bit of a challenge for me, because while I remembered some of them, I’m not great at marking quotes I like in books. And I’ve read a lot of books this year. Hopefully I didn’t miss too many of them!

I actually made an effort to put these in order, so counting down…

10. “Books don’t offer real escape, but they can stop a mind from scratching itself raw.” – David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

9. “Some things are too big to be seen; some emotions too huge to be felt.” – Neil Gaiman, The Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes and Nocturnes

8. “No one in the world gets what they want and that is beautiful.” – Ernest Cline, Ready Player One

7. “I’d rather die on an adventure than live standing still.” – V.E. Schwab, A Darker Shade of Magic

6. “Love is never better than the lover.” – Toni Morrison, The Bluest Eye

5. “Survival is inefficient.” – Emily St. John Mandel, Station Eleven

4. “Even nothing cannot last forever.” – Neil Gaiman, American Gods

3. “He always thinks because I’m reading, I’m not doing anything. There is no greater plague to an introvert than the extrovert.” – Pierce Brown, Golden Son

2. “The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.” – Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

1. “I lived in books more than I lived anywhere else.” – Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane


I’ve read some truly beautiful books this year, with a lot of amazing quotes. Many of these are my all-time favorite quotes, especially the ones about books. I still remember reading #3 (even though it’s from the very first book I read in 2015), and then rereading it because it is just so unbelievably accurate.

What’s your favorite book quote from 2015? Or your favorite book quote about books?
