“Picking five favorite books is like picking the five body parts you'd most like not to lose.”
Neil Gaiman

Lloyd Alexander
“We don't need to have just one favorite. We keep adding favorites. Our favorite book is always the book that speaks most directly to us at a particular stage in our lives. And our lives change. We have other favorites that give us what we most need at that particular time. But we never lose the old favorites. They're always with us. We just sort of accumulate them.”
Lloyd Alexander

David Wong, This Book Is Full of Spiders

Paullina Simons
“—Te quiero.
Y Tatiana llora.
—Lo sabes, ¿verdad?—le susurra él—. Te quiero. Estoy ciego por ti, loco por ti. Estoy enfermo de amor por ti. Enfermo de amor por ti. Te lo dije la primera noche que estuvimos juntos, cuando te pedí que te casaras conmigo, y te lo digo ahora. Todo lo que nos ha pasado, absolutamente todo, es porque crucé aquella calle por ti. Te adoro. Lo sabes muy bien. Por cómo te abrazo, por cómo te toco, mis manos en tu cuerpo, Dios, dentro de ti, todo lo que no puedo decirte durante el día, Tatiana, Tania, Tatiasha, amor mío, ¿me sientes? ¿Por qué lloras?
—A eso lo llamo yo susurrar...
Alexander sigue susurrándole, ella llora, ella se entrega en una rendición incondicional y llora y llora. La entrega no resulta fácil, ni para ella ni para él, pero sí hay entrega en el refugio de la noche.”
Paullina Simons, The Summer Garden

Riley Redgate, Noteworthy

E.L. Montes
“The point is, Jenna, no one is normal or perfect like that house you see across the street. Everyone suffers from their own struggles, whether they’re big or small.”
E.L. Montes, Perfectly Damaged

E.L. Montes
“When you adapt to someone, they become a part of your routine, a part of you. And when they’re taken away, you feel a bit lost. No matter how much you think it won’t affect your life, it does.”
E.L. Montes, Perfectly Damaged

Caroline Kepnes
“I pick up the list of Benji's five favorite books because we've got work to do:

"Gravity's Rainbow" by Thomas Pynchon. He's a pretentious fuck and a liar.

"Underworld" by Don DeLillo. He's a snob.

"On the Road" by Jack Kerouac. He's a spoiled passport-carrying fuck stunted in eighth grade.

"Brief Interviews with Hideous Men" by David Foster Wallace. Enough already.

"The Red Badge of Courage" by Stephen Crane. He's got Mayflowers in his blood.”
Caroline Kepnes, You

E.L. Montes
“Life, Jersey Girl, sometimes pauses. It stops. Sometimes we don’t even realize how everything around us is moving so quickly while we’re standing in the middle of it, allowing it to pass us by. Most of us, if not all, just lose the why. Some of us never figure it out to begin with. We lose sight of the purpose that wakes us up every morning and pushes our day forward. We lose a sense of hope and the feeling of life in general. We view life as more of a test, one that’s trying to beat us down every day.”
E.L. Montes, Perfectly Damaged

Craig Lancaster

Craig Lancaster, 600 Hours of Edward

Rebecca Mead
“What's your favorite book?' is a question that is usually only asked by children and banking identity-verification services--and favorite isn't, anyway, the right word to describe the relationship a reader has with a particularly cherished book. Most serious readers can point to one book that has a place in their life like the one that 'Middlemarch' has in mine.”
Rebecca Mead, My Life in Middlemarch

E.L. Montes
“Just easy. Life feels like it’s always hard. There’s never a calm way to get through it, to just breathe. Every day brings the same challenges, the same routines…the same everything. And as much as I hope the next day will be different, it’s not. It’s just the same old cycle over and over again.”
E.L. Montes, Perfectly Damaged

E.L. Montes
“You're beautiful, Jenna. i'm a man and I'm afraid to admit when I'm lucky enough to look at someone as beautiful as you.”
E.L. Montes, Perfectly Damaged

Tarryn Fisher
“Has estado callada tu vida entera. Estuviste callada cuando nos conocimos, callada cuando sufriste. Callada cuando la vida continúo golpeándote. Yo también estaba así, un poco. Pero no como tú. Eres inmovible. Y yo trate de moverte. No funciono. Pero eso no significa que tú no me hayas movido. Escuche todo lo que no dijiste. Lo escuche tan fuerte que no podía callarlo. Tu silencio, Senna, lo escuche en voz alta.”
Tarryn Fisher, Mud Vein

Richelle E. Goodrich

L.A. Starkey
“In a battle of wills, of the gods of old. For each his revenge, will he forfeit his soul. On the chess board of blood, will their narrative play. aged, innocent lives, revenge claims her way. Out of hate will come love, and love will come hate. For immortal and man, have entwined their damned fate.”
L.A. Starkey, Deceived

Christopher Isherwood
“A passenger isn't supposed to concern himself with the running of the ship; that is being taken care of by the crew, anonymous creatures down in the engine-room or up on deck, whom he never meets. But, in this case, I wasn't really a passenger. I was like a lazy or scared or drunken captain lying shut in his cabin when he ought to be on the bridge, giving orders. Sooner or later, I would have to come out and assume command and decide where we were going.

But not yet, I told the crew. You don't need me yet. Can't you see I'm sick? You're doing all right without me. Sure, I'll come, when we get near land. Just let me lie here a little longer. Leave me alone, can't you? Let me sleep.”
Christopher Isherwood

Sarah J. Maas
“Tal vez el mundo nunca sería perfecto, tal vez algunas cosas nunca estarían bien, pero tal vez ella tenía una oportunidad de encontrar su propia clase de paz y libertad.”
Sarah J. Maas, Crown of Midnight

Sarah J. Maas
“Ella miró hacia él, hasta que el castillo de cristal era una mancha brillante en la distancia. Ella miró hacia él, hasta que sólo había océano a su alrededor. Ella miró hacia él, hasta que el sol cayó más allá del horizonte y un puñado de estrellas colgaba por encima.
Sólo cuando sus párpados se cerraron y se tambaleó sobre sus pies, Celaena dejó de mirar hacia Chaol.”
Sarah J. Maas, Crown of Midnight

Rick Yancey
“Quiero que me toque otra vez. Quiero sentir sus manos, suaves como nubes, pero temo que al tocarme haga estallar los siete mil billones de billones de átomos que componen mi cuerpo y me disperse por el universo.”
Rick Yancey, The 5th Wave

Derek     Thompson
“Initially [my favorite books] seem to immerse me in another life, but ultimately they immerse me in me; I am looking through the window into another person’s home, but it is my face that I see in the reflection.”
Derek Thompson, Hit Makers: The Science of Popularity in an Age of Distraction

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“Vous êtes belles mais vous êtes vides. On ne peut pas mourir pour vous.”

Ikechukwu Joseph, Unlocking God's Divine Favor

Nick Hornby
“Maybe the best thing to do with favorite films and books is to leave them be: to achieve such an exalted position means that they entered your life at exactly the right time, in precisely the right place, and those conditions can never be re-created.”
Nick Hornby, Shakespeare Wrote for Money

Jerry Spinelli
“I’m erased. I’m gone. I’m nothing. And then the world is free to flow into me like water into an empty bowl . . .I see. I hear. But not with eyes and ears. I’m not outside my world anymore, and I’m not really inside it either. The thing is, there’s no difference between me and the universe. The boundary is gone. I am it and it is me. I am a stone, a cactus thorn. I am rain. I like that most of all, being rain.”
Jerry Spinelli, Stargirl

Elizabeth von Arnim
“In the centre of my library there is a wooden pillar propping up the ceiling, and preventing it, so I am told, from tumbling about our ears; and round this pillar, from floor to ceiling, I have had shleves fixed, and on these shelves are all the books that I have read again and again, and hope to read many times more — all the books, that is, that I love quite the best. In the bookcases round the walls are many that I love, but here in the centre of the room and easiest to get at, are those I love the best — the very elect among my favourites.”
Elizabeth von Arnim, The Solitary Summer

Avijeet Das
