Favourite Book Quotes


Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella

“The trouble with giving yourself a pep talk is, that deep down you know it’s all bullshit.” 


Wallbanger by Alice Clayton

Simon: “I’m gonna try to steal home” 

I smiled. “Silly Simon, it’s not stealing if I wave you in”  


The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

“I am very interested and fascinated how everyone loves each other, but no one really likes each other.”


On Dublin Street (On Dublin Street #1) by Samantha Young

“You’re good with the words, I’ll give you that.” 

“I’m good with my hands. Will you let me give you that?”

Bookish Habits


I used to get pretty anxious when I dropped a book. I used to pick it up, dust it off, kiss it and apologize. Now, my relationship with books has changed for the better. I still get slightly anxious when I drop a book but I’m no longer kissing them or apologizing.


I don’t like surprises. I don’t like surprise presents or surprise endings. This means that I like to look for spoiler-filled reviews when the plot of a book starts to make me anxious.


Now, I write in my books. I’ll chalk it up to English classes, lots of in-text notes are taken and I had to get over this aversion of mine. I still prefer making notes in e-books rather than physical books but it’s a quirk I’ve had to get over.

Favourite Childhood Books


The ever-popular authors of my childhood were Stand & Jan Berenstain were staple books in my household. The Berenstain Bears and the Little Critter series taught me a lot, especially when my little brother was born. I had the full Berenstain Bears collection and was mad when my mom attempted to give them away when I was deemed “too old”. You’re never too old for The Berenstain Bears.

The Trumpet of the Swan was my first chapter book and as such it will always hold a special place in my heart as I related to Louis feeling like an outsider with his family and the rest of the Trumpeter swans because I was just never enough.

Hope you enjoyed this week’s Top 10 Tuesday Rewind!

Happy Reading!

    I love that you chose to do more than one topic – I really wanted to do that myself. I don’t kiss my books after I drop them, but my pulse definitely jumps into my throat. Nice list 🙂 My TTT.

    I like how you picked different topics. I’m with you though, when I am reading something and I’m not really enjoying it, I often head over to goodreads and spoil myself on reviews, just to see if it’s as bad as I think it’s going to be. I also apologize to things I drop/bump into. It’s almost automatic.
