Lauren Gibaldi Ahh, what a great question! Whenever I put initials (or even random names) into a book, they mean something. Those are my parents initials. :)

“It was my favorite part of the night - when the evening's events were still unknown and unpredictable. It was the sense of possibility that I loved, the idea that anything could happen next.”
Lauren Gibaldi, The Night We Said Yes

“I've spent my life on the road, trying to find home, when really, you were always home to me.”
Lauren Gibaldi, The Night We Said Yes

“Did you ever think of me?"
"Yes, did you ever think of me?"
"All the time.”
Lauren Gibaldi, The Night We Said Yes

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Do I dare Disturb the universe?”
T. S. Eliot, The Wasteland, Prufrock and Other Poems

“In these fast and fickle times, it’s nice to know that there are some things you can always count on: the enduring brilliance of the last page of The Great Gatsby; the near-religious harmonies of the Beach Boys’ “California Girls”; and the lifelong friendship of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.”
Sarah Vowell, The Partly Cloudy Patriot

“Perhaps my best years are gone. When there was a chance of happiness. But I wouldn't want them back. Not with the fire in me now. No, I wouldn't want them back.”
Samuel Beckett, Krapp's Last Tape & Embers

“William Saroyan wrote a great play on this theme, that purity of heart is the one success worth having. "In the time of your life--live!" That time is short and it doesn't return again. It is slipping away while I write this and while you read it, and the monosyllable of the clock is Loss, loss, loss, unless you devote your heart to its opposition.”
Tennessee Williams

“I see now that dismissing YA books because you’re not a young adult is a little bit like refusing to watch thrillers on the grounds that you’re not a policeman or a dangerous criminal, and as a consequence, I’ve discovered a previously ignored room at the back of the bookstore that’s filled with masterpieces I’ve never heard of.”
Nick Hornby
