Favorite Book Quotes #4: Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore

I’m a big fan of Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, and it’s packed with great, funny quotes from the main character. So I decided this book needed to be the last one in my series of favorite book quotes posts. I hope these quotes inspire you to pick up the book!

“…I can’t stop squirming. If fidgets were Wikipedia edits, I would have completely revamped the entry on guilt by now, and translated it into five new languages.”

“I sit up straight and do the first thing a person is supposed to do in an emergency, which is send a text message.”

Favorite Book Quotes #3: The Martian

The Martian is one of my favorite books from the past couple of years. Mark has such a great sense of humor, and despite the life-and-death stakes, there are a lot of great, hilarious quotes in the book. I’ve posted a few of my favorites below!

“He’s stuck out there. He thinks he’s totally alone and that we all gave up on him. What kind of effect does that have on a man’s psychology?” He turned back to Venkat. “I wonder what he’s thinking right now.” LOG ENTRY: SOL 61 How come Aquaman can control whales? They’re mammals! Makes no sense.

“Maybe I’ll post a consumer review. “Brought product to surface of Mars. It stopped working. 0/10.”

“Actually, I was the very lowest ranked member of the crew. I would only be “in command” if I were the only remaining person. What do you know? I’m in command.”

“They say once you grow crops somewhere, you have officially ‘colonised’ it. So technically, I colonised Mars. In your face, Neil Armstrong!”

Favorite Book Quotes #2: The Girls at the Kingfisher Club

This book is sparklingly beautiful, a dark, Jazz Age retelling of the twelve dancing princesses fairy tale. The Girls at the Kingfisher Club was one of my favorite reads a few years ago, and it is jam-packed with gorgeous quotes. Below are some of my favorites.

“He was like a song she’d heard years back, played again in a quiet room; there was no telling if the song was any good, or if she only remembered it fondly because of the person she’d been long ago, when she heard it first.”

“The girls were wild for dancing, and nothing else. No hearts beat underneath those thin, bright dresses. They laughed like glass.”

“You can’t expect people to give you the things you love, unless you know how to ask.”
