What's not to love about a gritty, noir-ish hero, with a smoking habit and a soul not worth a damn kicking demon ass? NOTHING. I would marry that guy if I could (and that would most likely end with me getting strung up and worn as demon-skin, so it's...more

Andrea Gibson
“and I wonder if Beethoven held his breath
the first time his fingers touched the keys
the same way a soldier holds his breath
the first time his finger clicks the trigger.
We all have different reasons for forgetting to breathe.”
Andrea Gibson

G. Willow Wilson
“Conscience. Conscience is the ultimate measure of a man.”
G. Willow Wilson, Alif the Unseen

Veronica Roth
“We are not people who touch each other carelessly; every point of contact between us feels important, a rush of energy and relief.”
Veronica Roth, Allegiant

Gregory David Roberts
“One of the ironies of courage, and the reason why we prize it so highly, is that we find it easier to be brave for someone else than we do for ourselves alone.”
Gregory David Roberts

G. Willow Wilson
“When have I ever suggested you burn them? I am allowed to have opinions, aren’t I? And I don’t hate them—I don’t give a fig about them. The only reason I cared is because you were so comfortable belittling me for believing things you only read about. I was afraid you’d turn into one of those literary types who say books can change the world when they’re feeling good about themselves and it’s only a book when anybody challenges them. It wasn’t about the books themselves—it was about hypocrisy. You can speak casually about burning the Alf Yeom for the same reason you’d be horrified if I suggested burning The Satanic Verses—because you have reactions, not convictions.”
G. Willow Wilson, Alif the Unseen
