We Need Another Book

So it's been about six months since I self-published 3 (haven't bought it yet? For shame) and it has been pretty incredible. It's been so fun having control and getting to see results in real time and hearing everyone's reactions to the book, and ngl I like the money. So...let's do it again?

This book has been a long time in the making--almost two years--and I finally feel like it's the right ti... Read more of this blog post »

This book does one of my favorite things, where everything starts bad and gets better. It also had characters who were just impulsively likeable, from the main character to the supporting characters to little one-line characters. I really was rooting ...more

A History of Glitter and Blood by Hannah Moskowitz

“I don't want to die, but I wish waking up every morning didn't feel like such a fuck-you every single time.”
Hannah Moskowitz, Gone, Gone, Gone

“When you're grieving, the times you're happy are so much more tragic than the times that you aren't. Because being happy feels fake and it feels temporary and it feels meaningless. And hating being happy is a shitty way to live.”
Hannah Moskowitz, Invincible Summer

“My life is just something that happened to me.”
Hannah Moskowitz, Invincible Summer

“So we dream on. Thus we invent our lives. We give ourselves a sainted mother, we make our father a hero; and someone’s older brother and someone’s older sister – they become our heroes too. We invent what we love and what we fear. There is always a brave lost brother – and a little lost sister, too. We dream on and on: the best hotel, the perfect family, the resort life. And our dreams escape us almost as vividly as we can imagine them… That’s what happens, like it or not. And because that’s what happens, this is what we need: we need a good, smart bear… Coach Bob knew it all along: you’ve got to get obsessed and stay obsessed. You have to keep passing the open windows.”
John Irving, The Hotel New Hampshire

“I am a student of love.”
Jaclyn Moriarty, The Ghosts of Ashbury High

“How do people, like, not curse? How is it possible? There are these gaps in speech where you just have to put a "fuck." I'll tell you who the most admirable people in the world are: newscasters. If that was me, I'd be like, "And the motherfuckers flew the fucking plane right into the Twin Towers." How could you not, if you're a human being? Maybe they're not so admirable. Maybe they're robot zombies.”
Nick Hornby, A Long Way Down

“My father took one hundred and thirty-two minutes to die.

I counted.

It happened on the Jellicoe Road. The prettiest road I’d ever seen, where trees made breezy canopies like a tunnel to Shangri-La. We were going to the ocean, hundreds of miles away, because I wanted to see the ocean and my father said that it was about time the four of us made that journey. I remember asking, 'What’s the difference between a trip and a journey?' and my father said, 'Narnie, my love, when we get there, you’ll understand,' and that was the last thing he ever said.”
Melina Marchetta, On the Jellicoe Road

“Just tell me how to be different in a way that makes sense.”
Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
