Favourite Book Quotes of 2016

favourite-book-quoes-2016It’s that time of year again where I get reflective and start thinking back on the year and the books I read and loved… And the quotes from books I loved. At the end of 2015 I did a post about my favourite quotes from books. I had so much fun compiling that list that I decided to do a 2016 edition! This post will feature my 16 favourite quotes from books I read this year.
