The Best Lines From Today’s Generation Of Young Adult Fiction Novels

book

There are books like The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, which went beyond expectations upon the release of its movie adaptation back in 2012. There are also books like Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead, which only set a definite bar when it comes to movie adaptations of best-selling novels.

But you know what? That doesn’t matter. Each of these books has their own unique features. As a book lover myself, let’s all stop judging one by its cover – literally and in this case, by its movie adaptation – via some of the best lines from today’s generation of young adult fiction novels:

“I have kept track of the boy with the bread.”

– Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins

“He told me once to be brave, and though I have stood still while knives spun toward my face and jumped off a roof, I never thought I would need bravery in the small moments of my life. I do.”

– Tris Prior, Divergent, Veronica Roth

“It’s such a beautiful question, Luce. I adore you for asking it, and I wish I could explain it better. All I can tell you is this: The only way to survive eternity is to be able to appreciate each moment.”

– Daniel Grigori, Fallen, Lauren Kate

“I just wanted to tell you that I understand if you go. It’s okay if you have to leave us. It’s okay if you want to stop fighting.”

– Gramps, If I Stay, Gayle Forman

“In spite of everything that’s happened, I’ve never thought of myself that way. Being a victim means being powerless. That you won’t take action. Always…always I’ve done something to fight for myself…for others. No matter what.”

– Rose Hathaway, Vampire Academy, Richelle Mead

Best Lines From My Favorite Books

book story

Kafka on the Shore

This is a story of boy who run away from home in search for his mother and sister and to escape his cold, controlling father. His adventure was both a tragedy and a victory. A great story showing how relationships intertwined with our destiny can make or break us.

“Memories warm you up from the inside. But they also tear you apart.” – Haruki Murakami

Birdsong

The book gives us a good look about WWI. How soldiers go through trauma and affects their reality after war. The characters are complicated which is how the humans are.

“I know. I was there. I saw the great void in your soul, and you saw mine.” – Sebstian Faulks

The Fault in Our Stars

A love story turned into movie. The story is about finding love when you’re least expecting it. Love doesn’t respect time or even lifeline. When it comes, it strikes hard and nothing would stop it, even death. This was the case of Hazel Grace who is suffering from terminal thyroid cancer. She was almost giving up on life when she met Augustus Waters who turned her life around.

“There are days, many of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set. I want more numbers than I’m likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful.” – John Green

Pride & Prejudice

The story teaches us some wisdom about love and marriage. Back in time, when marriages are based on status and wealth, it’s hard to distinguish whether you are marrying for love or money. It teaches to give second chances and a dashing outfit doesn’t mean he is good man to marry.

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” – Jane Austen

Matilda

I read this book when I was a kid. And I can relate how helpful to have a supporting teacher to guide you in school. And how cruel life can be for a growing child. Matilda’s parents are uninterested about her and busy with their sick little lives that they don’t notice Matilda’s unique abilities. Good thing she got Miss Honey. With her, she found a happy ending.

“It’s a funny thing about mothers and fathers. Even when their own child is the most disgusting little blister you could ever imagine, they still think that he or she is wonderful.” – Roald Dahl
