Top 10 Tuesday: Quotes I Loved From Books I Read In The Past Year Or So

Lists are an awesome thing to make. Sometimes they're helpful in reminded you of your needed groceries. Other times they are wish lists of things you hope for in the future.

And then there's the Top 10 Tuesday list, created by The Broke and The Bookish. There are topics about a wide range of things from debut authors to author duos, etc. In searching for content for a Tuesday post, I came across this page and now I'm throwing my two cents into the ring.

Here is my first Top 10 Tuesday post: Top 10 Quotes from Book I've Read in the Past Year.

“I think you gotta be who you want to be until you feel like you are whoever it is you're trying to become. Sometimes half of doing something is pretending that you can.”

“Isn’t that what stories do, make real things fake, and fake things real?”

“What's that?" he snarled, staring at the envelope Harry was still clutching in his hand. "If it's another form for me to sign, you've got another -"
"It's not," said Harry cheerfully. "It's a letter from my godfather."
"Godfather?" sputtered Uncle Vernon. "You haven't got a godfather!"
"Yes, I have," said Harry brightly. "He was my mum and dad's best friend. He's a convicted murderer, but he's broken out of wizard prison and he's on the run. He likes to keep in touch with me, though...keep up with my news...check if I'm happy....” 
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

“Being temporary doesn't make something matter any less, because the point isn't for how long, the point is that it happened.” 
― Robyn Schneider, Extraordinary Means
