Top Ten freebie Book Quotes

 

 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by 
That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. Link back so everyone can check out other bloggers' lists. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.

This week is a Top Ten freebie so I am going with - Top Quotes. We did a post like this not long ago but there's no shortage of awesome quotes, so here's some I didn't use last time.      


The Lord of the Rings (The Lord of the Rings, #1-3)

"In the morning we shall have gone; but we will send our messages through the lands. The Wandering Companies shall know of your journey, and those that have power for good shall be on the watch."  

A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, #3)

"My scouts report fires in the high places at night. Signal fires, they think...as if there were a ring of watchers all around us."  

A Clash of Kings  (A Song of Ice and Fire, #2)

"Speak the names, and a man will do the rest."

"That's funny. The damage doesn't look as bad from out here." 

Planet of Exile

"In the last days of the last moonphase of autumn a wind blew from the northern ranges through the dying forests of Askatevar, a cold wind that smelled of smoke and snow." 

Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick (Perry & Gobi, #1)

"What happened back there?"
"Semtex. I left it in the alley outside the club."
"What? You did that too?"
"No one was hurt. Just a distraction." 
"Just a distraction? That was a bomb!"
"Only a little one." 

A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire, #5)

"Have you seen my other shoe, m'lord?"
The question seemed to vex Lord Bracken. "Am I a bloody handmaid, to fetch you shoes? Go barefoot if you must. Just go. "
"Does that mean m'lord won't be taking me home with him, to pray with his little wife?" Laughing, Hildy gave Jaime a brazen look. "Do you have a little wife, ser?"

"I have sworn a vow," he told Hildy wearily. 
"No turnips for you then," the girl said, saucily. 
"Get out," Lord Jonos roared at her. 

The Cats of Tanglewood Forest

"I run here and there and everywhere with my eyes wide open, but I never see anything. Fairy-like, I mean."

A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire, #5)

Jeyne Poole let out a shrill, high scream. 
"Oh, bloody shit," said Holly. "That will bring the kneelers down on us, and no mistake. Run!"

"I've just about had enough of you. Go that way. You'll be malfunctioning within a day, you nearsighted scrap pile."

  27. I love the quotes from Star Wars and Au Revoir Crazy European Chick- it's been so long since I've read A Song of Ice and Fire that I barely remember those quotes (I guess probably too long!). And of course, LOTR is always a win with me. :)
