Top Kindle Highlights Of 2019 – Part Two


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 2019.

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 15 that stood out this year…

She stares at her hand, unable to believe that her spirit will one day leave it, that her spark will depart. Her painted face will outlive her, preserving her as she is now.
The Doll Factory by Elizabeth Macneal

The woman in the painting has become her twin, like her and yet nothing like her. She has suffocated her, until Iris does not know where she ends and this image begins. She has escaped one half of herself for another.
The Doll Factory by Elizabeth Macneal

I always said that if I saw it happen to somebody, I would have the loudest voice, making sure the world knew what went down. Now I am that person, and I’m too afraid to speak.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

People like us in situations like this become hashtags, but they rarely get justice. Did he realise that if he does become a hashtag, some people will only see him as a drug dealer?
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

‘Sometimes you can do everything right and things will still go wrong. The key is to never stop doing right.’
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Daddy claims the Hogwarts houses are really gangs. They have their own colours, their own hideouts, and they are always riding for each other, like gangs. Harry, Ron, and Hermione never snitch on one another, just like gangbangers. Death Eaters even have matching tattoos. And look at Voldemort. They’re scared to say his name. Really, that “He Who Must Not Be Named” stuff is like giving him a street name.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

And as the borders between night and day stretch to their thinnest, so too do the borders between worlds. Dreams and stories merge with lived experience, the dead and the living brush against each other in their comings and goings, the past and the present touch and overlap. Unexpected things can happen.
Once Upon A River by Diane Setterfield

It was commonplace to say that a person was at death’s door, as if there were some real line between life and death and a person might stand upon it for a time.
Once Upon A River by Diane Setterfield

A river no more begins at its source than a story begins with the first page.
Once Upon A River by Diane Setterfield

There are stories that may be told aloud, and stories that must be told in whispers, and there are stories that are never told at all.
Once Upon A River by Diane Setterfield

Words accumulate indoors, trapped by walls and ceilings. The weight of what has been said can lie heavily on what might yet be said and suffocate it. By the river, the air carries the story on a journey, one sentence drifts away and makes room for the next.
Once Upon A River by Diane Setterfield

Mathematicians didn’t frighten her, and spiders—and bees—were just that. A spider’s web was composed of numerous radii, a logarithmic spiral, and the light-diffusing properties of their webs and silk were fascinating.
The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi

When you are who they expect you to be, they never look too closely.
The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi

History is a myth shaped by the tongues of conquerors. What appears good may eventually sour and curdle in our collective minds. What appears bad may later bloom and brighten.
The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi

The trouble with steps was that the more you took in a certain direction, the more people assumed that you would continue on.
The Huntress by Kate Quinn
