Top Ten Tuesday!
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke And The Brookish. Who doesn't love lists. They make life easy! And fun!! It's always a never ending topic.

This week's topic: 

Top Ten Quotes that I loved from books I read in the past year or so

1. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline"You have been recruited by the Star League to defend the Frontier against Xur and the Ko-Dan Armada." ~ I love the reference to my favorite movie The Last Star Fighter. 

2. & 3.  Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

“God gives us the ugliness so we don’t take the beautiful things in life for granted.”  

“Ugly love becomes you. Consumes you. Makes you hate it all. Makes you realize that all the beautiful parts aren't even worth it. Without the beautiful, you'll never risk feeling the ugly. So you give it all up. You give it all up. You never want love again, no matter what kind it is, because no type of love will ever be worth living through the ugly love again.”

~ Ugly Love has so may good quotes I had to pic a few of them. 

4. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas“We need hope, or else we cannot endure.”  ~ I really like this quote it fits. 

5. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater “He asked for a specific. I gave him a specific. I'm sorry it wasn't puppies.”  - I really need to get current before the next book comes out. 

6. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard “I can’t believe I didn’t see him for what he was from the beginning: a wolf in sheep’s clothing. And now I’m the sheep pretending to be a wolf.”  -  I thought this was a great quote. 

7. - 10. The Great Zoo of China by Matthew Reilly
“If dragons were real, then in all likelihood they were not graceful, high-chested, noble creatures; rather they would have been dirty, ugly, reptilian and mean.” 

“One of the things I have come up against time and again in my career is the notion that because a book is easy to read it was somehow easy to write.” 

“A monster movie is only as good as the monster in it.” 

“Hamish shrugged. “It’s all pretty cool and impressive … if you never saw fucking Jurassic Park.” 
I feel the need to read this book again. It's so good. 

Eek this week is a lot harder than I expected it would be. 

What is your top ten this week.
