Katy’s top ten favorite book quotes

Top 10Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because Jen is particularly fond of lists. She loves to share lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week she posts a new Top Ten list that one of her bloggers there will answer. Everyone is welcome to join! All she asks is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists. If you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It’s a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

  1. Love #7 and 8. The Graveyard Book was quite an amazing book. So many great lines I underlined as I read.
