I love finding new quotes in books that I can relate to or use in my life. Let’s face it, some fiction books can offer us solid advice! It makes you wonder if the authors follow that advice as well (probably not, lol). One day I’d like to take my favorite quotes and just put them all over my walls, but since I will most likely not be staying at the apartment I’m in, I’ll have to wait on that for now.
So today I’d like to share some of my favorite quotes from books I’ve read. I probably won’t share all of them in one shot – especially because I’m always finding new ones – so this will more than likely end up as a type of series post that I’ll do once in a while.

Okay, that’s probably enough for now. I’ll definitely be writing up another post as I read more books and search my favorites for my favorite quotes. This can definitely end up as a series-type of post in the future.
