Top Kindle Highlights of 2018 – Part Two (Blogmas #17)

Hello everyone,

Today I would like to share some more of the best quotes that I came across in the books I have read on my Kindle in 2018.

One of my favourite things about a Kindle is the ability to highlight passages and make notes, which are then automatically saved on Goodreads as part of your review.

When I read books, I love exploring the writing style and finding memorable, meaningful, and mesmeric lines. Here are another 10 that stood out this year…

‘If we all talked to each other in this way, with warm camaraderie and complete non-judgement, much pain would be spared and happiness generated’
The Trauma Cleaner by Sarah Krasnostein

‘In a world that changes so quickly, and where everyone eventually leaves, the stuff we own is the one thing we can trust. It testifies, through the mute medium of Things, that we were part of something greater than ourselves’
The Trauma Cleaner by Sarah Krasnostein

‘I’m sorry. Two words that, put together, convey so much…or pitifully little. They can be all you’ll ever need to hear, or hopelessly insufficient.
Set Free by Anthony Bidulka

‘True love was a flower in the gut, its petals unfurling inside out. You would risk all for love – blissful, never without its drops of dismay.’
The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton

‘Growing older, Nella realizes, does not seem to make you more certain. It simply presents you with more reasons for doubt.’
The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton

‘For what am I, she wonders, but a product of my own imagination?’
The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton

‘I wonder if it’s only me who hates wishes. If there are other people who think wishes are thoughts that hurt.’
Lying About Last Summer by Sue Wallman

‘There are reminders of people wherever you are if you look hard enough.’
Lying About Last Summer by Sue Wallman

‘How do words in books know where to go and who to be friends with?’.
How To Be Brave by Louise Beech

‘You have to know how to be sad to know how to be happy and if you know both of those things you’ll know how to be brave.’
How To Be Brave by Louise Beech

I would love to know your thoughts on some of these quotes! Did you come across any memorable quotes in 2018? Let me know in the comments!

Happy reading 🙂

    1. Thank you, Norrie! I find the highlight feature very useful, and the kind of quotes I included in this post are the ones I tend to look out for. But like you, I occasionally look back on some passages and wonder why I highlighted them!
