If you have no idea what TTT is- it’s a weekly bookish meemee in which bloggers are given a topic and then make their own top ten list of that topic!
This weeks TTT is Top Ten Quotes I Loved From Books I Read In The Past Year Or So.

― Jasmine Warga, My Heart and Other Black Holes
4. “…, and I went back to my old habit of walking the halls looking down most of the time. It was different now, though—before I’d done it without thinking, because I didn’t know another way. Now I was actively avoiding a life I knew might be out there. But it was my choice.”
