Powerful and Inspirational Quotes from Becoming by Michelle Obama

38746485

I only know Michelle Obama through what I see on TV and read on the internet. Only after reading her memoir that I learned more things about her.

After reading Becoming, I’m fully convinced that she really is an inspiring and powerful woman and as a mother. I loved the book. It gave me so many emotions; sometimes I’d catch myself swoon over their love story, cry as she recalls the school shootings, or laugh with some silly things they did. I was deeply moved by her. I love how she promotes hope and inspires so many people. She used her influence in so many positive ways. I admire and respect her a lot.

This is one of the books, I think, everyone should make time to read. I’ve been meaning to read it last year, but never had the chance. Read More »

Book Quotes: My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult

image

Two months ago, I have read a book that gave me so many feels, My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult. I have first watched it in movie but a blogger friend here on WordPress suggested that I should read the book too because it has different ending and yah, I love the ending that’s in the book. Though the movie made me tear up as well as reading it too and this will always be one of my favorite movies/books. Read More »

It was such a fun and inspiring night and thanks to these girls that I got to meet on the event. “It was nice meeting new people turns to new friends, so much fun that we became so clingy with each other that fast.” quoting Queenly on that and that’s so totally true!!

Let me share to you too these quotes I quoted from Lisa Macuja-Elizalde’s, Philippines’ prima ballerina, speech that night.
“Success always starts with a dream!”
“Follow your heart — it will never lead you astray.”

Looking forward to another event like this. 💕 We all came out of that theater truly inspired to be the best that we can be. 😀

The Wedding by Nicholas Sparks x quotes

image

I stayed up late last night just to finish this novel. It’s so beautiful! ❤

I was already hooked to this novel even just after reading its prologue and every chapter are too beautiful that you would want to read it continuously and never put it down.

I seriously had no idea that the ending will go that way! I really didn’t expect it. It was amazing.  Wow! Just wow!

Maybe some of you would say that what I wrote is kind of exaggerated. Haha! But really, I find the story super amazing! 😀

This novel was published last 2003 that I wondered why it took me so long to download this book and read it. Was I living under the rock all those years?? Lol 😜Read More »

Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks x Quotes

image

Hello guys. ❤ I’m writing this draft at 1:16am and I just finished reading the novel. This is the second night that I stayed very late to finish this book. I can’t seem to stop reading because I wanted to know what will happen to the characters as soon as possible. It’s so beautiful that I want to cry (haha! Exagg..) and thank Nicholas for the happy ending. I love happy ending!
Who have read the book already? It’s so beautiful, right? This is definitely one of my favorites already.
I can’t wait for tomorrow, I mean later, to tell my cousin about this book. I’m sure she’ll love it, too. 🙂

Let’s get down to some quotable quotes I found from this book. I quoted a lot and I even made a simple edit for my favorite quote from this book. It reminded of my dark past. 😦

image

I made it because I’m planning to post it on my Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. (Shameless plugging. 😜✌)

1. “Sometimes starting over is exactly what a person needs. And I think it’s admirable. A lot of people don’t have the courage it takes to do something like that.”

2. “being comfortable meant she might lower her guard” quoted this because I think I’ve done this once or twice in my life

3. “Because in the end, and no matter how hard it is, acceptance helps people move on with the rest of their lives.” 👍

4. “People hide the truth because they’re afraid.”

5. “My friend is scared all the time.”

  “That’s what courage is. If she weren’t scared, she wouldn’t need courage in the first place. I admire what she did.”

6. “That’s the thing about life. A lot of the time, it isn’t easy at all. We just have to try to make the best of it.

7. “Love doesn’t mean anything if you’re not willing to make a commitment,” she said, “and you have to think not only about what you want, but about what he wants. Not just now, but in the future.”

8.  “I’m not sure anyone’s life turns out exactly the way they imagine. All we can do is to try to make the best of it. Even when it seems impossible.”

9. “I truly believe that while love can hurt, love can also heal…”

10. “Be careful what you wish for.”

11. “Long-term relationships—the ones that matter—are all about weathering the peaks and the valleys.”

12. “I’ve come to believe that in everyone’s life, there’s one undeniable moment of change, a set of circumstances that suddenly alters everything.”

Have you read the book? If not, would you give it a try? 🙂

Ashes to Ashes by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian x Quotes

image

I downloaded this ebook last October 20 and I only managed to finish this yesterday because I was busy with other stuff. I really liked its story that talked about friendship, and love, of course. 😀
In reading a book/ebook, I’d always highlight some quotes that I really love and sometimes post them on Twitter (with proper citation). So, today I’ll share with you some of the quotes I liked from this novel. 🙂

1. When people love each other as much as you did, the love doesn’t just go away. No matter what.” What Alex said to Lillia about the latter’s friendship with Rennie.

2. We never talk about Rennie. Sometimes we don’t even kiss. But what Reeve said about needing to see me to breathe—I feel the same way. Like if I’m away from him too long, I’m underwater.

3. They don’t know what love is. They’re just hopped up on hormones. — Kat said. 😄

4. Each of us knew the terrible truth, that the people who know you best have the power to hurt you the worst. — 👍 agree!

5. “Reeve’s going to hurt you. That’s the kind of guy he is. But maybe you know that already.” I start to pull away from him, so I can see his face, but Alex holds me still. “I want you to know one thing.”

  My heart beats painfully hard inside my chest. “What?”

  “When he breaks your heart, I won’t be there waiting. I’m done.” And then the song is over, and Alex lets go of me and walks away.
— that hurts! 💔

6. “I’m not giving up on you. On us.” Reeve to Lillia. Sweet. ❤

That’s all! 🙂 If only some of my ebooks weren’t deleted, I could have posted them here, too. Anyway, I’ll just download another ebook and read, and post my favorite quotes again. 🙂 I’d love to download more of Jenny Han’s novels. I’ve read To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and I liked it!

P.S.
As much as I want to blog a book review, I don’t know how to make one. I ended up spoiling the story and deleted the whole post.. 😜
