Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature once hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl! Each week, a new topic is put into place and bloggers share their top ten (or your own amount) accordingly.
This week’s topic is freebie week so I decided to do a continuation post of a previous TTT topic which was Favourite Quotes. The last time I had done it was back in 2016 (!!!) so I thought it would be cool to update that list with more quotes from some of my more current reads.
“If the decision you’ve made has brought you closer to humanity, then you’ve done the right thing.”― Tahereh Mafi, A Very Large Expanse of Sea
“And I think about all the things we could be if we were never told our bodies were not built for them.”― Elizabeth Acevedo, The Poet X
“Every little thing about you can be a weapon, if you’re clever enough.”― Courtney Summers, Sadie
“Plenty of humans were monstrous, and plenty of monsters knew how to play at being human.”― Victoria Schwab, Vicious
“Humbling women seems to me a chief pastime of poets. As if there can be no story unless we crawl and weep.”― Madeline Miller, Circe
‘All I’m saying is a leader’s place is with their people. It is not a team if the leader thinks they’re responsible for everything.’― Charlotte Anne Hamilton, Lions Can Always Learn to Roar
“No one leaves home unless home is the mouth of a shark.”― Warsan Shire, Teaching My Mother How to Give Birth
It must be a strange life, always having permission to speak and feeling indignant when you’re finally asked to listen. It stems from white people’s never-questioned entitlement, I suppose.Reni Eddo-Lodge, Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race
