I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I last posted a Beautiful Quote! A LOT has happened since that last personal update.

  • I have travelled! I went to Greece with my boyfriend, and just a week later we went down to London to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
  • I finished my first year of uni and I started a job! Both of these are huge accomplishments for me and I’m so proud of myself. I’ve been settling into my job over the past few weeks which may explain why I’ve been off the radar a little. It’s very tiring as I work early morning shifts but I’m honestly enjoying it and the people are really lovely!
  • I’ve bought a lot of books…as I’ve been preparing for YALC. At the moment I’m reading Girls of Paper and Fire and trying to get through my YALC TBR. I’m super excited for that weekend!

So that’s a quick summary of my life recently. As you may or may not know, I recently read The Love and Lies of Rukhsana Ali also in preparation for YALC, and I really enjoyed it. It reminded me of a book I loved even more, A Very Large Expanse of Sea. So today we have a quote from that one!

“I didn’t believe it was possible to hide a woman’s beauty. I thought women were gorgeous no matter what they wore, and I didn’t think they owed anyone an explanation for their sartorial choices. Different women felt comfortable in different outfits.
They were all beautiful.”

Beautiful Quotes #94 / The Loneliest Girl in the Universe

Beautiful Quotes is a weekly meme hosted by me, where I post some of my favourite quotes. Any other bloggers are welcome to join me in this and just link my blog!

I’ve been thinking about underrated books in YA recently, and Lauren James always comes to mind! She’s a local author to me, and I’ve met her a couple of times now. She’s definitely an auto-buy author for me and I can’t wait to read more of her books in the future.

Today’s book has a beautiful cover to match it’s quote! I wish this would show of the gorgeous metallic shine, but I’ll hopefully take some photos of it soon for my Instagram. Anyway, onto the quote!

Beautiful Quotes #91 / Crooked Kingdom

Beautiful Quotes is a weekly meme hosted by me, where I post some of my favourite quotes. Any other bloggers are welcome to join me in this and just link my blog!

I’m continuing with my fantasy spree today and I have a quote from Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. I thought of this book after spotting The Language of Thorns on my TBR! Maybe I’ll get round to it after I finish The Raven Cycle which I started last night. I’m re-reading the first book before I finally continue with the series after a number of years!

Anyway, here’s today’s beautiful quote from a beautiful dulogy.

“I am grateful you’re alive”, he said. “I am grateful that you’re beside me. I am grateful that you’re eating.” 
She rested her head on his shoulder. 
“You’re better that waffles, Matthias Helvar.” 
A small smile curled the Fjerdan’s lips. 
“Let’s not say things we don’t mean, my love.”

Beautiful Quotes #89 / A Court of Mist and Fury

Beautiful Quotes is a weekly meme hosted by me, where I post some of my favourite quotes. Any other bloggers are welcome to join me in this and just link my blog!

Hello beautiful people! My life has gone slightly Sarah J.Maas mad at the moment, with the arrival of Catwoman today and as I’m currently reading this book. I read A Court of Thorns and Roses a longgg time ago and it’s taken me over two years to finally pick this series back up!

I’m actually enjoying it more than the first book, maybe because I’m much more of a fantasy reader now. Review coming later this week!

“To the people who look at the stars and wish, Rhys.”
Rhys clinked his glass against mine. “To the stars who listen— and the dreams that are answered.”

Beautiful Quotes #88 / Everything Everything

Beautiful Quotes is a weekly meme hosted by me, where I post some of my favourite quotes. Any other bloggers are welcome to join me in this and just link my blog!

I’ve just finished and loved My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick (review tomorrow). It reminded me of my love for contemporaries with a twist, and that brought me back to thinking of a few of my favourite contemporaries!

One of the books that came to mind is one I read over a year ago (review here) and whose beautiful movie version came out around a year ago (post here). I couldn’t help wanting to write about it again, so here’s a beautiful quote from Everything Everything!
