Quote Day

I thought for a long time about quotes. I don't usually go for the somewhat cheesy fitness ones. They don't last too long for me. I prefer ice cream over working out, so it might just be me.

The quotes that stick are the ones from my favorite books. I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter quotes but I decided to show you all some quotes from a completely different series. For me, this series is just as popular but I do know some people have never heard of it before. If this series is new to you- dive on in, I promise you won't regret it! (There are some graphic scenes in this, so be warned if that is not for you. The love story makes it worth it, in my opinion.)

I'm a huge fan of the Outlander Series from Diana Gabaldon.

Huge. Fan.

I read this series every other year. It takes awhile to get through, these aren't quick reads. But so worth the time.

Here are some of my favorite quotes I was able to locate on Pinterest:
(Sorry about the lack of actual sources to websites, some didn't have any and some required me to sign up to see. Pinterest is where I found them so I'm counting that as my official source now.)

Most people I suggest this series to, have loved it.
With the exception of my sister.
She said she liked it, but I don't sense the level of obsession that I think should go with this series.

There's so much that this book offers.
It's sometimes sweet, sometimes serious and has lots of humor.
I love the humor.

How could you not like this?
So darn beautiful and romantic!

And some parts of this series makes you cry.
I mean really cry.
Not just little tears that sneak out and no one will notice...
but the kind that has you sobbing in the corner of a room.

This is the Outlander series for me.
It's wonderful.
Which is why it will always have a place on my bookshelf and in my heart.
It's the kind of book I'm not able to forget easily, no matter how many times I read it.


  1. I just started reading this series this week! I started Outlander on Monday, finished it last night, and am now reading through the second one - and the first few chapters are so frustrating because you're like, "WHAT IS GOING ON HERE, THIS IS NOT WHERE I LEFT OFF!!" Anyhow, I'm obsessed already, if you can't tell by the wordiness of this comment. When my husband got up this morning, I was already on the couch with my book and he said, "Are we going to do anything together today or are you just going to sit there reading and unresponsive again?"

    1. I get sucked into that book so easily! It's such a wonderful story. I would have told my husband, "I'm pretty sure I'm going to sit here reading. All day. Bring coffee back please."


I LOVE comments...except bad ones. You can keep the bad ones. Or maybe disguise them as nice ones. I know people that are really good at that.
