Top 10 Iconic YA Book Quotes

I decided to do something a little different as I felt like doing a post but was between book reviews. I got this idea from an Epic Reads video I saw (here) and I'll probably steal most of their quotes, I'll be honest. Anyway, I was just thinking that there are so many YA books right now, and so many have become famous through popularity and being made into movies, etc. These are quotes that I think you would recognise even without having read the book.

1. “As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”  - The Fault In Our Stars, John Green

 "About three things I was absolutely positive. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him - and I didn't know how dominant that part might be - that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him." - Twilight, Stephenie Meyer

3. "And in that moment, I swear we were infinite." - The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

4. "May the odds be ever in your favour." - The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins

5. "Always." - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, J.K Rowling

6. “Becoming fearless isn’t the point. That’s impossible. It’s learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it.” - Divergent, Veronica Roth

7. “She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.” –Eleanor & Park, Rainbow Rowell

8. "If people were rain, then I was drizzle and she was a hurricane.” - Looking For Alaska, John Green

9. “One must always be careful of books,” said Tessa, “and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.” - Clockwork Angel, Cassandra Clare

10. "I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there is life after that, I'll love you then."  City of Glass, Cassandra Clare

So those are what I think are some iconic YA quotes. What ones did I miss? Let me know in the comments!


  1. Ah, this post is so on point! I recognize all these quotes save for the one from Clockwork Angel, haha!

    Meet Your (Contemporary) Match!

    1. Oh you should totally read the Infernal Devices so, that series is AMAZING! Thanks a lot :)

  2. Ahhh, I absolutely love these quotes! There are so many good quotes out there, especially with all the YA books becoming more and more popular. One of my favourite quotes is from a series called Defiance by CJ Redwine, and though it's not iconic (I think it should be, though), it goes like this: "It’s probably my job to tell you life isn’t fair, but I figure you already know that. So instead, I’ll tell you that hope is precious, and you’re right not to give up."

    1. OMG that quote is gorgeous! That quote should DEFINITELY be iconic, haha! It's so true, as well. Thanks a million! :)

  3. Nice list! My favorite quote here is the on from Divergent.

    1. I didn't like that series but I do love that quote! Thanks a lot :)

  4. These quotes ARE iconic. I recognized the quotes for even the books I hadn't read (such as Divergent). xD Great post!

    1. It's amazing, though, isn't it? I love how much quotes can affect our lives even if we'd never read or seen where they came from.

  5. I loved all of these quotes! I think my favorite is definitely the John Green one. :)
