Top Ten Book Quotes

I know the Book Quotes  form was a difficult one to fill and I'm sure you're curious to see the results.

This post will be a little different because I think we all know it was almost impossible for us all to choose the same quotes, right? Only one quote received more than one vote so that quote will be our number one. 
The other nine numbers will be the books, series or  characters with more quotes nominated.

10 - There were a lot of ties for this place so instead of posting all the quotes I'll post a few about books!

  • "A book reads the better which is our own, and has been so long known to us, that we know the topography of its blots, and dog's ears, and can trace the dirt in it to having read it at tea with buttered muffins." by Charles Lamb

6 - Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

  • "Okay, God, I thought. Get me out of this and I’ll stop my half-assed church-going ways. You got me past a pack of Strigoi tonight. I mean, trapping that one between the doors really shouldn't have worked, so clearly you're on board. Let me get out of here, and I’ll...I don’t know. Donate Adrian’s money to the poor. Get baptized. Join a convent. Well, no. Not that last one."

  1. Loving (almost) all the quotes! And I agree, the last one is the best. xD Though it was made up by the Marauders so I think they should get the credit for it, not Harry. x) Good job on this poll! I love reading these posts every Saturday, thank you. x)

  2. Love those quotes! The last one was great :D

  3. Ha! I love that "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good" is #1.

  4. Hey! I was the one person that voted for Dash! Haha, cool :) Actually, a lot of my votes made in on the list - that's awesome. I love that #1 quote! Harry Potter love <3
