Goodreads Members' Favorite Quotes of 2013Posted by Jade on December 22, 2013
First up: the most popular quote from a book published in 2013! As a site for passionate readers, it makes sense that this one was also book-themed:
"Life is a book and there are a thousand pages I have not yet read."
Clare was also the most-quoted author this year. Members liked her quotes 316,495 times! Who else topped the quote charts in 2013? It looks like you also went crazy for the words of John Green, J.K. Rowling, Rick Riordan, and Nicholas Sparks.
In total, quotes were liked more than 10 million times on Goodreads this year. Here are the three quotes that received the highest number of likes in 2013:
The Four Loves, C.S. Lewis
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, J.K. Rowling
Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky
