Top 16 of 2016~ Day 4

I am changing it up a bit. I know that this was actually suppose to happen yesterday and that today would have been "New-to-me Authors" but I just couldn't miss out on the opportunity to share with you all my top 16 quotes of 2016.

Now this year has been a mix bag for a lot of different reasons... I definitely in no way reached the reading goal I originally wanted, or the blogging goals I had set for myself, but whatever. I can however say that the books I did read were epic, and I took away a lot of amazing quotes. So yes there maybe some quotes from the same books a couple times... but what can I say, I'm a sucker for highlighting a whole book sometimes.
