Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is 10 Quotes I Loved From Books I Read In The Past Year Or So.
Thank goodness for GoodReads, because I’m not someone who keeps tracks of quotes while reading books. The quotes below are all from books I read and really enjoyed in the past year. Clicking on the cover of the book will take you to its GoodReads page.

A deformed cyborg with a missing foot.
A Lunar with a stolen identity.
A mechanic with no one to run to, nowhere to go.
But they will be looking for a ghost.
“If blood alone is what defines us, no child born is born in freedom.”
