I started keeping a written reading journal this year precisely so that I would have a good way to record quotes from the books I'm reading. Here are my favorite quotes from books I read in 2015:
From First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen:
"Motherhood is hard enough without judgment from others who don't know the whole story."
From How To Eat A Cupcake by Meg Donohue:
"And then I was alone in the tapering crowd."
From Who Could That Be At This Hour by Lemony Snickett:
"If someone wanted to torture me until I gave them critical information, all they would have to do is get my socks wet."
From Life Is a Wheel by Bruce Webster:
"One day you're a Jetson, the next you're a Flinstone."
From Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote:
"I felt in my pocket the key to this apartment; with all its gloom, it still was a place of my own, the first, and all my books were there, and jars of pencils to sharpen, everything I needed, so I felt, to become the writer I wanted to be."
From A Christmas Memory by Truman Capote:
"As for me, I could leave the world with today in my eyes."
From The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver:
"There are more words in the world than no and yes."
From Yes, Please by Amy Pohler:
"I'm tired of being tired, and talking about how tired I am."
From A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
"Never forget what you are, for the world surely will not. Make it your strength. Then it will never be your weakness. Armor yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you."
From Tricky Twenty-Two by Janet Evanovich
"My hair was out of control by birth. Hers was by design."
