A-Z of Favourite Quotes
2022 Blogging from A to Z challenge badge

Today I’m continuing with the Blogging from A-Z Challenge! I’ll be posting every day except Sundays throughout April. This year, my readers voted for the theme “My Favourite Book Quotes”. So I’ve collected together the quotations that move me, inspire me and make me smile. I hope you enjoy them!

I couldn’t think of many books or authors beginning with Y, so I decided to ask for input from my fellow book lovers across social media and compile a list of your favourite book quotes. Some I took from the comments left on my posts this month. Thank you to everyone who shared these memorable lines. I now have a few more books to add to my TBR pile!

“Softly, in the dusk, a woman is singing to me;
Taking me back down the vista of years, till I see
A child sitting under the piano, in the boom of the tingling strings,
And pressing the small, poised feet of a mother who smiles as she sings.”

  1. Emily St. John Mandel has the latest quote I loved in her recent novel Sea of Tranquility: “It’s shocking to wake up in one world and find yourself in another by nightfall, but the situation isn’t actually all that unusual. You wake up married, then your spouse dies over the course of the day. You wake up in peacetime and by noon your country is at war; you wake up in ignorance and by the evening it’s clear that a pandemic is already here.”
