Mackenzi liked a quote
Us by David Nicholls
“Light travels differently in a room that contains another person; it reflects and refracts so that even when she was silent or sleeping I knew that she was there.”
David Nicholls
Mackenzi liked a quote
Us by David Nicholls
“perhaps grief is as much regret for what we have never had as sorrow for what we have lost.”
David Nicholls

“God bless the book people for their boundless knowledge absorbed from having words instead of friends.”
Mackenzi Lee, The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue

“We are not broken things, neither of us. We are cracked pottery mended with laquer and flakes of gold, whole as we are, complete unto each other. Complete and worthy and so very loved.”
Mackenzi Lee, The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue

“We're not courting trouble," I say. "Flirting with it, at most.”
Mackenzi Lee, The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue

Polls

A 4 días de que se acabe el año decidí hacer esta encuesta, ¿Cuáles de estos libros deberían ser mis primeras lecturas del 2018? La mayor parte quería leerlos este año, pero como decidí priorizar otras lecturas, no me dio el tiempo suficiente. Los 5 con más votos serán los primeros. ;)

PD. Si no han leído ninguno no se preocupen, pueden votar el que les parece más interesante o el que tenga la mejor portada, igual cuenta. XD

“I get it. The things you hope for the most are the things that destroy you in the end.”
David Levithan

“The true hero is flawed. The true test of a champion is not whether he can triumph, but whether he can overcome obstacles - preferably of his own making - in order to triumph.”
Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain

“She had a sadness that was so deep, but it still could turn to light in a second, and when I saw her smile I wondered what it would be like to make her smile. I thought... I thought it would be like the discovery of smiling.”
Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone

“The world turns and the world spins, the tide runs in and the tide runs out, and there is nothing in the world more beautiful and more wonderful in all its evolved forms than two souls who look at each other straight on. And there is nothing more woeful and soul-saddening than when they are parted...everything in the world rejoices in the touch, and everything in the world laments in the losing.”
Gary D. Schmidt, Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy

“To live every day as if it had been stolen from death, that is how I would like to live. To feel the joy of life, as Eve felt the joy of life. To separate oneself from the burden, the angst, the anguish that we all encounter every day. To say I am alive, I am wonderful, I am. I am. That is something to aspire to.”
Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain
