Eleanor And Park | Quotes Posts!

I've been writing this " Quotes Post! " series for a while now and I really enjoy writing it and I hope you enjoy reading it ! But now I want to add something new :) From now on some of the quotes posts will be based around books or fandoms that I really love and if there's any you'd like to see then as always just let me know in the comments ! :)

Eleanor and Park is one of the most beautiful books I've ever read and if you haven't read it then I definitely recommend it and you should probably go and get it ... seriously you shouldn't even still be here, go to the library ;) I don't tend to write reviews because it's not something I really enjoy doing but if you'd like to read one before you go out and get it, I'll link to one here by one of my favourite bloggers called Crystal . So here are some quotes that made me laugh, broke my heart and put it back together again ... usually all in the same sentence !



" And when he touched her he didn't seem to care about any of those things. Some of them he even liked. Like her freckles. He said she was candy-sprinkled."

" She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn't supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something "

"You're the kind of person I wanna be with when I want to be alone "

"I look like a hobo?"
"Worse," he said. " Like a sad hobo clown."
"And you like it ?"
"I love it." 

"She broke into a smile and when Eleanor smiled, something broke inside of him, Something always did."

"I'm sorry about yesterday", She said.
He hung on to his straps and shrugged. " Yesterday happens,"

" We're going to listen to music in my room"
" Fine" his dad said from underneath the sink. "Just don't get anybody pregnant."

" Or maybe, he thought now, he just didn't recognise all those other girls. The way a computer drive will spit out a disk if it doesn't recognise the formatting. When he touched Eleanors hand, he recognised her. He knew. "

"The first time he'd held her hand, it felt so good that it crowded out all the bad things. It felt better than anything had ever hurt" 

"You can be Han Solo and I'll be Boba Fett. I'll cross the sky for you"

" I love your name. I don't want to cheat myself out of a single syllable "

" He made her feel like more than a sum of parts "
" You look like a protagonist.You look like the person who wins in the end "

"Maybe I'm not even attracted to real boys. Maybe I'm some sort of perverted Cartoon-Sexual "

"I want everyone to meet you. You're my favourite person of all time "

I only usually include ten quotes but I could only get this down to fifteen because there's still so many more quotes that have stuck with me from Eleanor and Park and I can't express what a beautiful book it is. I couldn't put it better than John Green : 

"Reminded me not just what it's like to be young and in love with a girl, but also what it's like to be young and in love with a book." 

Let me know which one was your favourite and why! Or if there's another quote from the book that you love I'd like to hear that too :) Also any suggestions for future quotes posts on specific books ! 

Lots of love, Marianne xxx

  4. *Internally Screams* :') OMG! As I read every single one of these quotes my heart melted a little because Eleanor & Parks relationship was everything to me :'( :') (can't decide if I'm happy or sad haha) My favorite quote is all of them! haha "You're the kind of person I want to be with when I'm alone" <3 "She broke into a smile and when Eleanor smiled, something broke inside of him, Something always did." *heart explodes into a million pieces* " And when he touched her he didn't seem to care about any of those things. Some of them he even liked. Like her freckles. He said she was candy-sprinkled." (I'm already dead :') This makes me want to read the book all over again :D I kind of really want them to make movie out of this. Thank you so much for the shout out Marianne <3 :D I love your quote posts! Quotes are just so amazing, it's like they know the right thing to say at the right exact time. <3

    1. I'm with you there honey ;) That book makes you feel emotions you didn't know you had and breaks parts of your heart it has already broken three times hehe :) Oh crystal you do make me giggle haha :) Those are actually my favourite quotes as well ! I don't know what it is about when he calls her candy sprinkled but it gets me every time ( maybe just because I like candy hehe but Ilike to hope Im a bit deeper than that ;) ) I would love for there to be a movie but I'd definitely have to purchase a bucket load of waterproof mascara if they did !

  7. I've never read this book but it sounds epic! Some of these made me smile, some these made me laugh and some of these made me think about how magical and special love is! My favourite had to be "I love your name. I don't want to cheat myself out of a single syllable" who is this person?!?! that love talk is on point! I may not be the stranger finding your magical notes but they sure do make me smile! You are a legend Marianne! <3
