Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where we list our top tens!

This week’s topic is “top ten five quotes I loved from books I read in the past year.” Because I’m a weirdly ambitious person (at the weirdest times), I decided—why not create desktop wallpapers for my favorite quotes? Y’know, as you do, the day before the post is supposed to be up. In hindsight, I should’ve created these over the weekend, but I hadn’t realized Tuesday’s Top Ten was about quotes!

I only managed to do around five wallpapers (because they are extremely tedious, and it doesn’t help that my laptop started slowing down). No matter.

You have five awesome desktop wallpapers I’ve created—quotes from Six of Crows, The Rest of Us Just Live Here, and more!

*(If you click on the image, the image will become bigger. :) Also, you can save it and make it as your desktop wallpaper if you want. Disclaimer: You can use the wallpapers, but you cannot edit, redistribute, or sell it as your own.)

I hope the framing is okay when you use it as a wallpaper on whatever device you’re using.

What do you think of the wallpapers I made? Which quote do you love?
