"This was everything I hoped for and more. Silvan was scary in the absolute best way, 5 stars!"
Sam shared a quote
Sophie's Surrender by Sam Mariano
“Belief in a just world is a fairytale that people tell themselves so they can feel safer. ‘That could never happen to me because I wouldn’t do the things she did.’ It’s self-soothing bullshit for people who can’t cope with reality. The world isn’t just.”

“It seemed I was torn; I wanted my goodbye, and I didn't. I wanted him to make me stay, and I wanted to go.”
Sam Mariano, Because of You

“You know when you’re going to be decidedly less amused? When I’m sendin’ you to the store at 3am because I’m craving a certain brand of pickles.” Carter takes a step back, rolls his eyes at me again, and grabs his plate. “Come on, wifey.” “And my back is already aching from carrying around your spawn. I hope you’re plannin’ to give me a back rub later.” “Are your feet swelling up, too? Maybe I should just buy you a whole spa day.” “I mean, it’s the least you could do for the mother of your child.”
Sam Mariano, Untouchable

“No one can dull your light unless you let them.”
Sam Mariano, Untouchable

Skye Warren, Hear Me

“The only difference between reality and fiction is that fiction needs to be credible.”
Mark Twain

“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
Toni Morrison

“My dream wasn’t to be a princess in a castle. I wanted to be Persephone, claimed by the god of the underworld.”
Skye Warren, Don't Let Go

“I have never understood how people can blithely disregard the damage they do by following their hearts. Who was it said that following your heart is a good thing? It is pure egotism, a selfishness to conquer all.”

Hmm, that is very sad and terrible. And surprising. That will have to be remedied.
Well, thank you anyway! :)
