Melissa liked a quote
The Beatrice Letters by Lemony Snicket
“I will love you as the iceberg loves the ship, and the passengers love the lifeboat and the lifeboat loves the teeth of the sperm whale, and the sperm whale loves the flavor of naval uniforms.”
Lemony Snicket

I put off starting this book; I was scared. Rain Hill admits attempting suicide twice before age ten and left school due to bullying, and I didn't know if I could handle reading that.
My fears were completely unfounded. I wouldn't say the book is "lig

“It's like being in love, discovering your best friend.”
Elizabeth Wein, Code Name Verity

Maggie Stiefvater
“You can be just friends with people, you know," Orla said. "I think it's crazy how you're in love with all those raven boys."

Orla wasn't wrong, of course. But what she didn't realize about Blue and her boys was that they were all in love with one another. She was no less obsessed with them than they were with her, or one another, analyzing every conversation and gesture, drawing out every joke into a longer and longer running gag, spending each moment either with one another or thinking about when next they would be with one another. Blue was perfectly aware that it was possible to have a friendship that wasn't all-encompassing, that wasn't blinding, deafening, maddening, quickening. It was just that now that she'd had this kind, she didn't want the other.”
Maggie Stiefvater, Blue Lily, Lily Blue

Erin Morgenstern
“This is, in part, why there is less magic in the world today. Magic is secret and secrets are magic, after all, and years upon years of teaching and sharing magic and worse. Writing it down in fancy books that get all dusty with age has lessened it, removed its power bit by bit.”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

John Green
“Some people don't understand the promises they're making when they make them," I said.

"Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That's what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
