"Magic can be found in stolen moments."
Francesca Lia Block
"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, The Lullaby
"The easiest lies to tell are the ones you want to be true."
Holly Black, White Cat
"Moments passed like eons, and his hands were in my hair. All around us crickets and frogs started up their night songs again. The entire forest seemed to open up and bloom in the dark."
Sarah Ockler, The Book of Broken Hearts
"You guys seemed, still seem, in love, truly, deeply.” She sighed. “But seventeen is an inconvenient time to be in love."
IF I STAY, by Gayle Forman (via clarakensie)
"And that is how someone who is unusually susceptible to nightmares, night terrors, the Creeps, the Willies and the Seeing Things That Aren’t Really There talks himself into making one last trip to the abandoned, almost-certainly-haunted house where a dozen or more children met their untimely end."
A fave quote from MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN, Ransom Riggs (via clarakensie)
"When you sit in silence long enough, you learn that silence has a motion. It glides over you without shape or form, exactly like water. Its color is silver. And silence has a sound you hear only after hours of wading inside it. The sound is soft, like flute notes rising up, like the words of glass speaking. Then there comes a point when you must shatter the blindness of its words, the blindness of its light."
The Shape of Water by Anne Spollen (via effyeahyoungadultlit)
"The easiest lies to tell are the ones you want to be true."
White Cat by Holly Black (via effyeahyoungadultlit)
"I hate those endless descriptions of a heroine’s physical attributes … it really bothers me how in books it seems like the only two choices are perfection or self-hatred. As if readers will only like a character who’s ideal—or completely shattered."
The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart (via effyeahyoungadultlit)
