All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
"Fuck. I’m a glorified classics guy but what the hell happened here. I cried. Fuck. I rarely go for YA trust me; I’m a condescending jackass who’s read one too many books. Usually I never even touch these kinds of sappy stuff, I basically hate the..." Read more of this review »

jo mo and 129 other people liked Emily May's review of A Spool of Blue Thread:
A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler
" "The trouble with dying," she'd told Jeannie once, "is that you don't get to see how everything turns out. You won't know the ending."

This book was lovely. That's how I would describe it. I'm not going to sell it as anything it isn't - fans of f..." Read more of this review »

Katja Millay
“I haven’t started counting yet. I wonder if it’s just me or if it’s like that for everybody; that every time someone dies you start counting how much time has passed since they’ve been gone. First you count it in minutes, then in hours. You count in days, then weeks, then months. Then one day you realize that you aren’t counting anymore, and you don’t even know when you stopped. That’s the moment they’re gone.”
Katja Millay, The Sea of Tranquility

Cassandra Rose Clarke
“She moved like water, graceful and soft and lovely. Every part of me wanted to stick out my foot and trip her, just to see her stumble.”
Cassandra Rose Clarke, The Assassin's Curse

Sarah Addison Allen
“I was just telling Claire about a guy I met in bread class. I hate him, but he could be my soul mate.”
Sarah Addison Allen, First Frost

Warsan Shire
“i don't know when love became elusive
what i know, is that no one i know has it
my fathers arms around my mothers neck
fruit too ripe to eat, a door half way open
when your name is a just a hand i can never hold
everything i have ever believed in, becomes magic.

i think of lovers as trees, growing to and
from one another searching for the same light,
my mothers laughter in a dark room,
a photograph greying under my touch,
this is all i know how to do, carry loss around until
i begin to resemble every bad memory,
every terrible fear,
every nightmare anyone has ever had.

i ask did you ever love me?
you say of course, of course so quickly
that you sound like someone else
i ask are you made of steel? are you made of iron?
you cry on the phone, my stomach hurts

i let you leave, i need someone who knows how to stay.”
Warsan Shire

Alex Shearer
“Time can do all sorts of things. It’s almost like a magician. It can turn autumn into spring and babies into children, seeds into flowers and tadpoles into frogs, caterpillars into cocoons, and cocoons into butterflies. And life into death. There’s nothing that time can’t do. Except run backwards. That’s its trouble really, it can only go one way.”
Alex Shearer, The Stolen
