Quote Book: This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

Sarah Dessen is one of the initial authors who got me to read YA and especially fall in love with contemporary romance books. At this point, I’ve literally read everything by her and one of my favourites is This Lullaby (probably tied with The Truth About Forever on the very top). Aside from the fact that Remy and Dexter’s wonderful love story is etched on my mind, the book has some of the best lines/quotes.

quote from this lullaby by sarah dessen - leap of faith

“I am coming to terms with the fact that loving someone requires a leap of faith, and that a soft landing is never guaranteed.”

― Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby

quote from this lullaby by sarah dessen - some things

“Some things don’t last forever, but some things do. Like a good song, or a good book, or a good memory you can take out and unfold in your darkest times, pressing down on the corners and peering in close, hoping you still recognize the person you see there.”

― Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby

I’ll only be sharing two quote posters for every quote book post but like I said, this book has so many great ones, so I’ll probably share more. Oh and here are some of the resources I used:

    Great quotes! I love Sarah Dessen’s books. This Lullaby and Just Listen are two of my favorites.

    Oh! I think I just fell in love with the first quote. I’m definitely going to have a look at some of her books. :)

    I still have to read another Sarah Dessen book. I’ve read the Truth about Forever and while I enjoyed it, I didn’t really understand the hype. Then I heard that, that one wasn’t the best one. I still need to be hugely impressed by her but these quotes are already impressive. Thanks Hazel!

    Those posters are so lovely!
    I love This Lullaby! It was actually my first Dessen book and the one that got me hooked onto her others, so I’ll always have a special place in my heart for it. Reading these quotes reminded me I definitely need to do a reread.

    I’ve never read a Sarah Dessen book before, but I’ve heard so many great things about her books, and I love these quotes so much. Sarah Dessen really has a way with words.

    Lovely quotes. The first book i owned by Sarah Dessen was actually this one too! I also picked up Someone Like You recently…although i have seen the movie adaption years ago. I think i have read another one but i forgot what that title was. But This Lullaby is somewhat special to me :)

    Oh wow, you’re incredibly talented at making these quote pictures – they look gorgeous! Got to say I have heard of Dessen and have probably read one of her books when I was younger but yeah, she’s a brilliant writer.
