One Can Only Quote (2015 Book Blogger Love-a-Thon)

Hi everyone! I'm continuing in the Love-a-Thon by sharing two of my favorite quotes, both relating to love but one romantic and the other friendship. I love keeping track of quotes in my book journal, so I'm glad I have a reason to share some today :)


I didn't read Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins until November of last year (I know, what?!) but when I finally did, I fell completely in love with Cricket Bell and his quirky self. I feel like he is the definition of "boy next door," literally and figuratively, and there's so much about him that goes unnoticed, but seeing Lola proclaim this got me all warm and fuzzy.

It reminds me a bit of the line from Looking for Alaska by John Green, "... if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane," which I also love.


Speaking of John Green, this quote from The Fault in Our Stars was one that filled my heart the moment I read it. I love the relationship between Augustus and Isaac which, to be honest, I didn't realize until I watched the adaptation in theaters.

Are there any memorable quotes you love from books you've read?
I'd love to hear them — maybe it'll be a reason to start something new!

If you missed my introduction post, here it is! I'll be back tomorrow with two other challenges, so feel free to leave your links in the comments below :)

  12. Yes ... watching the movie and hearing Isaac say that made me tear up!

  13. YES YES YES I really do love Lola and Cricket together. I can't decide if I love Anna and the French Kiss or Lola and the Boy Next Door! I love Paris as a setting, but the relationship between Lola and Cricket is hard to beat.

  16. Did you read it during all the hype? I find that I don't enjoy a book as much as I could have if I hear people go on and on about how great it is. And Wendy, you haven't read any of Stephanie Perkins' books yet?! YOU MUST SOON!!!
