Van John Green tot Stephen Chbosky
Ze geven ons tijdelijke escapes from reality, superromantische love stories die ons hart doen ontploffen (Hazel & Gus, need we say more?), een overdosis inspo en vooral heel veel fun. YA books, we're talking about you!
Om onze liefde voor de boeken te vieren, zochten we de 15 beste, leukste en mooiste YA book quotes voor je uit. Plak ze in een lijstje, hang ze aan de muur en enjoy! 🙂
1. 'We accept the love we think we deserve.'

4. 'Becoming fearless isn’t the point. That’s impossible. It’s learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it.'

6. 'Maybe some people are just meant to be in the same story.'

8. 'I try to think about how it all works. At school dances, I sit in the background, and I tap my toe, and I wonder how many couples will dance to ‘their song.’ In the hallways, I see the girls wearing the guys’ jackets, and I think about the idea of property. And I wonder if anyone is really happy. I hope they are. I really hope they are.'
—Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
9. 'And now that you don’t have to be perfect, you can be good.'
—John Steinbeck, East of Eden
10. 'On that cold night in January it all slipped into place for me and she became my everything and my everyone. My music, my sun, my words, my logic, my confusion, my flaw.'
—Julie Murphy, Side Effects May Vary
11. 'So I went back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane.'

12. 'As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.'
? John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
13. 'If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s this: We all want everything to be okay. We don’t even wish so much for fantastic or marvelous or outstanding. We will happily settle for okay, because most of the time, okay is enough.'
—David Levithan, Every Day
14. 'You could rattle the stars. You could do anything, if you only dared. And deep down, you know it too, and that’s what scares you the most.'
—Sarah J. Maas, Throne of Glass
15. 'I'm in love with you, and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you.'
?John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
