Antonia’s Top Ten Tuesday: Dialogue Quotes

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s topic is memorable things characters have said (quotes from characters that have stuck with you).
