‘Top Ten Quotes I Loved From Books I Read In The Past Year Or So’

These quotes are all chosen from books I’ve enjoyed this year:

  1. ‘You can’t trust everything that ass Plato wrote,” Sokrates said.”  The Just City by Jo Walton
  2. ‘Hic sunt leones. Here be lions.’ The Golden Son by Pierce Brown
  3. ‘People do not give it credence that a fourteen-year-old girl could leave home and go off in the wintertime to avenge her father’s blood but it did not seem so strange then, although I will say it did not happen every day.” True Grit by Charles Portis
  4. ‘Oh, for crying out loud,” she said. “Were you fools any more chivalrous I’d surely swoon on the spot and damage my uterus.’ The Mechanical by Ian Tregillis
  5. ‘It’s funny how many ways there are to hurt people. As many ways to hurt as there are species of flower. Whole bouquets of hurt. You do it without even realizing.’ When We Were Animals by Joshua Gaylord
  6. ‘I’m only a little ashamed to say I outsprinted the boy. Old habits die hard. It’s good to be faster than what’s chasing you, but really the important thing in running away is to be faster than the slowest of those being pursued. Rule number one: be ahead of the next man. Or child.’ The Liar’s Key by Mark Lawrence
  7. The palace’s decrepit decorations were overwhelmed by piles of bone and hundreds of skulls staring down from broken chandeliers. Vampires slouched along the walls, drunk with blood, sometimes with red hands resting on humans who still showed signs of life.’ The Greyfriar by Clay and Susan Griffiths
  8. ‘When everyone knows you’re a monster, you needn’t waste time doing every monstrous thing.’ Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
  9. ‘Love as thou wilt’ Kushiel’s Chosen by Jacqueline Carey
