Finding Those Little Love Quotes

This past month has been insanely busy, both at work and at home. Don’t let anyone fool you: planning a wedding is exhausting! From making place cards to writing our ceremony script, planning this event has been both incredibly frustrating and wonderfully rewarding.

As I was researching different wedding scripts I kept getting distracting by all the little book quotations about love – which made it all the more enjoyable! I wanted to share some of my favourites and spread the love!

“I’ve never had a moment’s doubt. I love you. I believe in you completely.” – Ian McEwan “Atonement”

“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.” – Emily Brontë “Wuthering Heights”

The Hobbit

 


“I am all the time thinking about poetry and fiction and you.” —Virginia Woolf

“Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.” —Nicole Krauss “The History of Love”

Winnie the Pooh


“Perhaps, after all, romance did  not come into one’s life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept to one’s side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music; perhaps… perhaps love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath.”
 – L. M. Montgomery “Anne of Avonlea”

The Fault In Our Stars – John Green

The Fault In Our Stars CoverOn The Cover: Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely re-written.

Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault In Our Stars is award-winning author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

Why I Chose It: I’ve been watching a lot of the Vlogbrother’s videos lately, and after feeling guilty for never having read a John Green novel, I decided to plunge head first into the newest one!

The Review:

This book is really hard for me to review. I felt so many emotions while I was reading it, which I suppose tells you right there how much it effected me and how good a book it was. Within the first page I was already laughing. Hazel is an adorable character, and I loved everything about her. She was spunky and fun, and I loved her sarcastic dialogue about everything happening around her. Her interactions with other characters are absolutely delightful, and I don’t think I have ever laughed literally out loud so much at a book before.

At the same time, the book is about a cancer patient, so inevitably there are going to be sad parts to the book. First, I need to tell you something about myself. I have cried over exactly one book, and that is Bridge To Terabithia by Katherine Paterson. For some reason, I cannot get through the ending of that book without sobbing, but I have always loved that book for that specific reason. But The Fault In Our Stars made me cry multiple times. I was hopeless when I was about halfway through the book, and I didn’t know how I was going to finish the book, only that I had to. There were multiple parts that I was laughing and crying at the same time because of how honestly human this book was.

Girl reading The Fault In Our StarsI really don’t know what else I can say about the book to make you understand how good it was. I suppose all I can say is that The Fault In Our Stars is unforgettable, and I sincerely recommend reading it.

Rating: 5 / 5
