Top Ten Tuesday – Freebie: Doctor Who Quotes!

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Today’s theme was:

Top Ten Tuesday Freebie — YOUR CHOICE OF TOPIC.

After the Top Ten Tuesday a few weeks ago in which we shared our favorite quotes from books, Selah from A Bibliophile’s Style and I were inspired to do a list of our favorite Doctor Who quotes, because there are just so many. It was SO HARD to narrow it down to only ten as I could list Doctor Who quotes for DAYSSSS. But I’ve put together a list of ten of my favorite quotes, and I haven’t put the character that said these quotes next to them because I think it’d be fun for you guys to try to guess. If you want. I’ve put the answers at the bottom in case you get stumped. 🙂

To start us off, the quote that inspired this post:

1. “You want weapons? We’re in a library! Books! The best weapons in the world! This room’s the greatest arsenal we could have – arm yourselves!”

2. “When you’re a kid, they tell you it’s all… Grow up, get a job, get married, get a house, have a kid, and that’s it. But the truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. It’s so much darker. And so much madder. And so much better.”

3. “In 900 years of time and space, I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important.”

4. “We’re all stories, in the end. Just make it a good one, eh?”

5. “This is one corner… of one country, in one continent, on one planet that’s a corner of a galaxy that’s a corner of a universe that is forever growing and shrinking and creating and destroying and never remaining the same for a single millisecond. And there is so much, so much to see.”

6. “What’s the point of being grown up if you can’t be childish sometimes?”

7. “There’s always something to look at if you open your eyes.”

8. “Some people live more in 20 years than others do in 80. It’s not the time that matters, it’s the person.”

9. “A straight line may be the shortest distance between two points, but it is by no means the most interesting.”

And the one that sums up how amazing the Doctor is:

10. “He’s like fire and ice and rage. He’s like the night and the storm in the heart of the sun. He’s ancient and forever. He burns at the center of time and can see the turn of the universe. And…he’s wonderful.”

Who said them?

1. Ten (David Tennant), Tooth and Claw 2. Elton Pope (Marc Warren), Love and Monsters 3. Eleven (Matt Smith), A Christmas Carol 4. Eleven, The Big Bang 5. Eleven, The Power of Three 6. Four (Tom Baker), Robot 7. Five (Peter Davidson), Kinda 8. Ten, The Lazarus Experiment 9. Three (Jon Pertwee), The Time Warrior 10. Tim Latimer (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), The Family of Blood

SUNDAY FUNDAY: WEEK IN REVIEW [4]

The lovely Cristina over at Girl in the Pages started Sunday Funday as a way to recap the bookish (and not-so-bookish) things that have happened that week. I thought it’d be a really fun way to keep you guys up to date on what I’ve been reading, reviewing, and wanting to read but also to tell you a little bit more about myself outside of my book love. I think I’ll tailor the post each week to what I’ve done but I will always try to include a book haul and a new book or two that I’ve added to my want-to-read list. 🙂

June 16 – 22, 2014

I had an interesting week. I had a very interesting opportunity came up that I don’t know much about but I am freaking out over. Fingers crossed something amazing happens with that.

I also joined up with the Summer Blogger Promo Tour hosted by The Book Bratz, and I’m super excited about it. I’ll be getting to know 8 other amazing book bloggers and each Sunday, starting July 6, I’ll be posting something (an interview, collab, etc) about/with each of those bloggers. I’m really looking forward to that!

Summer Blogger Tour

Some posts on my blog this week you might be interested in:

I was nominated for a second Liebster Award by the lovely Rachel at Confessions of a Book Geek.

I also did a post on The Problem with Books which got a lot of attention! I loved how many people were able to relate to it, and I’ve got another “The Problem with” post in the works. If you have any ideas for a discussion post or a “The Problem with” post, definitely let me know in the comments! 🙂

Not my post, but I thought this post about YA fiction over on The Atlantic was extremely well-written, and I agree with it 100%. Here’s a quote I especially liked:

“YA doesn’t need rescuing. All it needs is a change in the way people talk about it.”

Books read: I’m reading Necroscope by Brian Lumley this week. It’s taking a lot longer than I thought it would. I’ve got less than a hundred pages left now!

TBR: Nil by Lynne Matson, which was described by A.N. Willis on Twitter as “Lost meets The Maze Runner, with a welcome dose of romance (shirtless surfer dudes aplenty)”. I mean, YES, please!

I also finally got To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han and Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour from the library.

AND I won this ARC of Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern from Happy Book Lovers through a Twitter giveaway! Can’t wait to read that one.

AND I won a copy of The Sting of Summer by Katherine Over from a Goodreads competition. Woo! Lucky week for me.

Non-bookish things:

So I’M FREAKING OUT about the Teen Wolf premiere tomorrow night on MTV (10/9c), and I recapped Season One and Season Two on WatchPlayRead. The Season Three recap will be up tomorrow so watch out for that.

I also revisited David Wong’s John Dies at the End on WPR, too!

On Monday, I went to the movie theater to see “Rise of the Cybermen” and “The Age of Steel” (two episodes of Doctor Who from when David Tennant was the Doctor) on the big screen. It was AMAZING. It was incredible to see these two episodes on that huge screen. And David Tennant. Especially David Tennant.

Non-bookish things I’m excited about:

TEEN WOLF. TEEN WOLF. TEEN WOLF. I’m excited. If you’re a fan of the show, first, tell me in the comments, and then follow me over on Twitter because I’ll probably be live tweeting my reaction as I watch. 🙂 Just watch the trailer. It. Looks. Epic.

June 9 – 15, 2014

This week I reached 100 followers on my blog!! I’m really excited about this because I’ve been blogging for less than three months! I also went over 3,000 overall views, which I’d say is pretty awesome.

Also, I won an ARC of Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern from Cassie over at Happy Book Lovers. YAY!

Books read: I’m sad to say I only read two books this week: The Revealed by Jessica Hickam (linked back to my review) and Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson (review coming tomorrow).

I also read and reviewed the five chapter sneak peek of Isla and the Happily Ever After. I CAN’T WAIT for that to come out!

TBR: BIG TBR this week!

I checked out four books from the library this week: Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys (based on this review by Booknerderi), The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern (right before I won the ARC), and The Strain by Guillermo del Toro (I am SO excited about this one).

Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys, The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern, and The Strain by Guillermo del Toro

I also bought these four books at Books-a-Million for $25! I originally checked out Second Chance Summer from the library, but when I went to return two others and renew SCS, I was told I had to return it because someone else had requested it! RUDE. Haha. So I bought it instead. In addition to SCS, I got The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (for $3!!), The Daughter of Smoke & Bone and Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor (for $5.97 each!). Sales are THE. BEST.

Books-a-Million haul, June

I’m reading Brian Lumley’s Necroscope next. It is the first in a 13 book series, and I’ll be reading one book a month until I finish. My dad has been telling me to read it for a LONG time. He read The Humans based on my recommendation, so I decided to read something he recommended, though I know 13 books is a little different than 1. Anyway, I’m excited. I’ve been reading a lot of YA and contemporary recently. I needed something different. Also, yay for vampires!

Non-bookish things:

I went to see How to Train Your Dragon 2 today! WOW! It was amazing. I actually liked it even more than the first one, and I loved the first one. I would definitely recommend going to see it! Be prepared for awesomeness. Also some unexpected feels.

Today was also Father’s Day! I got kind of emotional this afternoon. I finished reading Second Chance Summer, which has A LOT of feels in the dad department. I was already crying reading the book, but when I finished it, I just couldn’t handle it. I’m so glad my dad was there for me to hug while I cried.

OH! I also got an internship with Month9Books this week! I’ll be interning with their PR department and helping with events. You guys should check them out. They publish speculative fiction, which if you couldn’t tell, I really like. 🙂

AND! I made a new friend this week. I’ve been getting to know a fellow Mississippi-based blogger, Booknerderie, and it’s been fun. She has an awesome book blog, so you should go check her out. Her reviews are honest, informal, and fun. And she uses words like “amazeballs”, which I really think should be used in more reviews. Haha.

Non-bookish things I’m excited about:

Look at this awesome shirt I got in the mail this week!!

ISN'T IT AWESOME?!

ISN’T IT AWESOME?!

TOMORROW my movie theater (all Cinemarks/Tinseltowns?) are showing “Rise of the Cybermen” and “The Age of Steel” (two episodes of Doctor Who from when David Tennant – Ten – was still the Doctor). I’m so excited to see these two episodes on the big screen! Should be fun. 🙂

What about you? What bookish and non-bookish things happened in your life this week?

  1. Another bookish tattoo. I currently have four: a Peter Pan one, an Alice in Wonderland one, a Harry Potter one, and a Hunger Games one. See picture. I want another one. It’ll probably be inspired by The Perks of Being a Wallflower, or The Great Gatsby, or The Humans. I don’t know. I have a lot of ideas. The picture above is my Peter Pan tattoo: I drew it, and it represents the directions to Neverland (second star to the right).

indoorhammock

10. An indoor hammock. I’m allergic to pretty much everything outside, so an outdoor hammock is probably out of the question. This one looks amazing. Picture found HERE.
