Childish Spirits by Rob Keeley
"Childish Spirits is an adorable book. As in, I adored it from start to finish. It's also adorable in the sense that its characters and story are charming and sweet.

But it's not just a "cute" story. There's a strong creep factor (it's a book about..." Read more of this review »

“I think you should be a child for as long as you can. I have been successful for 74 years being able to do that.”
Bob Newhart

Cassandra Clare
“When you love someone, they become a part of who you are. They’re in everything you do. They’re in the air you breathe and the water you drink and the blood in your veins. Their touch stays on your skin and their voice stays in your ears and their thoughts stay in your mind. You know their dreams because their nightmares pierce your heart and their good dreams are your dreams too. And you don’t think they’re perfect, but you know their flaws, the deep-down truth of them, and the shadows of all their secrets, and they don’t frighten you away; in fact you love them more for it, because you don’t want perfect. You want them.”
Cassandra Clare, Lady Midnight
