DNF. Didn't get very far after how convenient the story fell together at the beginning (aka it wasn't plausible). I wasn't convinced it was real--and that's what I want out of a fairy tale.
Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross
"
None of the girls was asleep, drugged, playing, waiting.
They were dead.
They had been killed here.
She wanted to be horrified. It seemed sick to be jealous, too, but she was. It hurt to know he’d loved so many other girls; that she was not special,...

“Scared of flying?"

"Nope"

"Heights?"

"Nope"

The plane shook again, and I closed my eyes, trying to take deep breaths.

"What is it then?"

"I have a fear of falling from heights.”
Laura Kreitzer, Shadow of the Sun

“Hope is a demon. It convinces you to believe in something better, persuades you the outcome will be favorable, and whispers eagerly in your ear that the miracle you so desperately need will happen. Then it crushes you. Hope only leaves you fallen and bleeding in its aftermath, nothing more than a pile of misery and desolation.”
Laura Kreitzer, Forsaken Harbor

“It’s okay. I’m—”
“Fine?” Joseph chimed in. “Obviously not. You need to be checked out by a doctor.”
“I am a doctor.” I rolled my eyes at him, but that didn’t deter him from his train of thought.
“Not that kind of doctor.”
“What is ‘that kind of doctor’ going to say when they see my shimmering pink blood, Joseph?” I changed my voice to mimic one of a concerned doctor. “I’m sorry ma’am, you appear to be suffering from a mild case of Pretty Pretty Princess syndrome. Have you ingested any magical woodland faeries recently?”
Laura Kreitzer

“I guess I always felt even if the world came to an end, McDonald's would still be open.”
Susan Beth Pfeffer, Life As We Knew It

“What was that?” I croaked.
Akhol sidestepped into my view and towered over us. “It was a Demon.”
“But you said—”
“I know what I said,” Akhol cut in sharply, rubbing his eyes. “There was something wrong with it. Like the Demon
had adapted to the darkness and water.”
I shivered. “Did he have a ring that he called ‘my precious’?” I joked to try and lighten the mood. I didn’t get a good
look at the Demon, but my mind had no problems picturing Gollum.
They stared at me blankly.”
Laura Kreitzer, Abyss
