“Oscar Wilde once said that to live is the rarest thing in the world, because most people just exist, and that’s all. I don’t know if he’s right, but I do know that I spend a long time existing, and now, I intend to live.”
Robyn Schneider, The Beginning of Everything

“And I realized that there's a big difference between deciding to leave and knowing where to go.”
Robyn Schneider, The Beginning of Everything

“Life is the tragedy,' she said bitterly. 'You know how they categorize Shakespeare's plays, right? If it ends with a wedding, it's a comedy. And if it ends with a funeral, it's a tragedy. So we're all living tragedies, because we all end the same way, and it isn't with a goddamn wedding.”
Robyn Schneider, The Beginning of Everything

Hey guys, so 2018 is almost ending (*cries*) and I still have tons of books that I haven't read yet. I'm currently reading Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater and I'm planning to finish The Raven King soon after. But my question is, since I'm really indecisive to choose which, please help me choose which book should I read next?? If you haven't read any of these, please just choose the ones that seems interesting. Thank you! :D
