"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Top Ten Tuesday (43)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because they are particularly fond of lists there at The Broke and the Bookish. They'd love us to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week they will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of their bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join. All they ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND post a comment on their post with a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post to share.  If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. 
The topic this week is:
Top Ten Romantic Quotes from YA Books

In honor of Valentine's Day, this week is a freebie, but with a romantic (or anti-romantic) twist.

I love a good quote, so I am rounding up 10 of my favorite romantic/beautiful YA quotes for you!
  1. “The words were on their way, and when they arrived, Liesl would hold them in her hands like clouds, and she would ring them out like the rain.” —Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

  2. “On that cold night in January it all slipped into place for me and she became my everything and my everyone. My music, my sun, my words, my logic, my confusion, my flaw.” —Julie Murphy, Side Effects May Vary

  3. “There's only one of him, she thought, and he's right here.  He knows I'll like a song before I've heard it. He laughs before I even get to the punch line. There's a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes me want to let him open doors for me.  There's only one of him." ―Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park

  4. “And I guess I realized at that moment that I really did love her. Because there was nothing to gain, and that didn’t matter.–Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

  5. “This is what love does: It makes you want to rewrite the world. It makes you want to choose the characters, build the scenery, guide the plot. The person you love sits across from you, and you want to do everything in your power to make it possible, endlessly possible. And when it’s just the two of you, alone in a room, you can pretend that this is how it is, this is how it will be.” –David Levithan, Every Day

  6. “She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.” –Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park

  7. “It’s like being in love, discovering your best friend.” –Elizabeth Wein, Code Name Verity

  8.  "I hated him more than anything. I loved him more than anything. Because, he was everything. And I hated that, too." –Jenny Han, It's Not Summer Without You

  9.  "In the end, it’s not the changes that break your heart; it’s that tug of familiarity." –Jennifer E. Smith, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

    Finally, I have to end with one of my favorite quotes from one of the most beautiful written books I've read:

  10.  "And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.”–Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

I know there was some doubling of books, but when the book's got good prose, whatta ya gonna do?
