What are some of your favorite quotes?


  1. Love your John Green quotes Sara! And I really like the quote from Audrey, Wait! I haven't read that book yet but I LOVE books which have a strong music theme (I have a Nick and Norah quote on my list:)

  2. I seriously need to get stuck into some of John Green's books. The only one I've read of his so far is his co-written 'Will Grayson, Will Grayson.'


Your comments brighten my day. :)
