“It’s like there are a million screams caught inside of my chest but I have to keep them all in because what’s the point of screaming if you’ll never be heard and no one will ever hear me in here. No one will ever hear me again.”

– Destroy Me: A Shatter Me Novella by Tahereh Mafi



“Though he sounded like himself, Roar’s eyes had lost all their humor. They were heavy with sadness now— a sadness he carried everywhere. In his smile. In the drape of his shoulders. Even in the way he stood, weight to one side, like his entire life was out of balance. He looked as he had a week ago, when they’d floated down the Snake River together: heartbroken.”

– Into The Still Blue (Under the Never Sky #3) by Veronica Ross



“There are few people whom I really love,  and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see the world, the more dissatisfied I am with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of either merit or sense.”

– Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

  • P.S. This was the first romantic book I ever read ❤
