November 17: Top Ten Quotes I Loved From Books I Read In The Past Year Or So

“I am haunted by humans.”

– The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

“We do not remember days, we remember moments.”

– All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

“Sometimes we get so sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We would like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes, we are sad but we really don’t know why we are sad, so we say we aren’t sad but we really are.”

– The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

“We don’t even wish so much for fantastic or marvelous or outstanding. We will happily settle for okay, because most of the time, okay is enough.”

– Every Day by David Levithan

– Looking for Alaska by John Green

Day 1 of 3 Days 3 Quotes Challenge

How are you guys doing? I hope you’re having a great day and if not, let me remind you that tomorrow is Friday! Friday makes me happy even I’m not really working.

Three days ago, I was nominated (on my old blog) by Valeria to do the “3 Days 3 Quotes Challenge”. Thank you Val for the nomination!

The rules are simple

Thank the person who nominated you.
Post one quote each day for 3 days (it can be anybody’s quote, even yours. Make sure you credit it properly), and lastly,
Tag 3 different bloggers everyday.

Let’s do this!


My first quote is from Haruki Murakami’s Norwegian Wood.

“If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.”

Murakami is one of my favorite authors and this quote is one of my favorites. For me, these lines tell us to explore more books (or genres) and read not only the “hyped” ones but also those books written by indie and not famous authors.
