My Top 16 Best Book Quotes of 2016

This blog post that is not actually in my plan. This idea just came to me while I was browsing through my blog posts trying to complete my list of best books that I read this year. I was reading through my reviews and I can’t help but be transported back to the time when I was drafting my reviews and checking for the best quotes from each book. There were quite a few lines that really did hit me hard and connected to so I decided to make a list and share with you guys 16 of the best lines from books that I read this year. I hope you enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Because this post is so long, I decided to cut it midway. Don’t forget to click page 2 to direct you to the other half of the list. ๐Ÿ™‚


Clicking the titles of the books will direct you to my review of each. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. That last quote though! All The Bright Places has a special place in my heart that whenever I see things related to mental illness, I immediately remember ATBP (more than 13 Reasons Why).
