“Books are dangerous. They pull you in and make you fall in love or totally destroy you. For the time being of course. Then you finish it and those feelings linger around in agony until you start another and the whole process happens again.”
Emily Goodwin, Stay

“It terrified me, right down to my very core, to be alive while the rest of the world was dead.”
Emily Goodwin, Contagious

“I wasn’t afraid of death. If I died, it would be over. My worst fear wasn’t of dying, it was of living.”
Emily Goodwin, Contagious
