"Yup, here we are again... still five goddamn stars.

It’s interesting, rereading a favorite book once a lot has changed in your life. Because your perspective of the book changes as well, and it’s like you see it all over again. And it’s when you fi..." Read more of this review »

"När han lugnat sig något, började han leta bland de ord han kunde; han sade att han ville tjäna Krok och hans män troget tills de vunnit dessa rikedomar och han själv fått sin hämnd; men han ville ha ett säkert löfte att han själv måtte få sticka ut ...more

"Han gör någon lustig rörelse som jag inte förstår. Sen kastar han en slängkyss och vänder sig om och går nerför backen. Jag står med handen framför munnen för att kasta en slängkyss tillbaka, men han skulle ändå inte se den."

Åh, vad jag ville gilla

"I'm not ashamed. But I'm afraid you'll be ashamed of me if you know."

This book was an interesting look into one type of cultural reaction to LGBT children, and manages to balance the much needed conversation about how these things actually happen bu

"I've done what I can," Moss said.

Oh, wow. Despite the praise comparing it to The Hate U Give and Dear Martin, I wasn't entirely sure what to expect as I am notoriously bad at reading the book descriptions unless I specifically want to know something

“We wish we could offer you a creation myth, an exact reason why you are the way you are, why when you read this sentence, you will know it's about you.”

Arthur Rimbaud
“Come back, come back, dear friend, only friend, come back. I promise to be good.
If I was short with you, I was either kidding or just being stubborn; I regret all this more than I can express. Come back and all is forgotten. It is unbearable to think you took my joke seriously. I have been crying for two days straight. Come back. Be brave, dear friend. All is not lost. You only need to come back. We will live here once again, bravely, patiently. I’m begging you. You know it is for your own good. Come back, all of your things are here. I hope you now know that our last conversation wasn’t real. That awful moment. But you, when I waved to you to get off the boat, why didn’t you come? To have lived together for two years and to have come to that! What will you do? If you don’t want to come back here, would you want me to come to you?

Yes, I was wrong.

Tell me you haven’t forgotten me.

You couldn’t.

I always have you with me.

Listen, tell me: should we not live together anymore?
Be brave. Write immediately.
I can’t stay here much longer.
Listen to your heart.
Now, tell me if I should come join you.
My life is yours.”
Arthur Rimbaud, I Promise to Be Good: The Letters of Arthur Rimbaud

Arthur Rimbaud
“But today I would suggest you ponder these verses from Ecclesiastes: “And he would have seven flights of madness in his soul, who, having hung his clothes beneath the sun, would groan at the hour of rain,”
Arthur Rimbaud, I Promise to Be Good: The Letters of Arthur Rimbaud

Hanya Yanagihara
“And he cries and cries, cries for everything he has been, for everything he might have been, for every old hurt, for every old happiness, cries for the shame and joy of finally getting to be a child, with all of a child's whims and wants and insecurities, for the privilege of behaving badly and being forgiven, for the luxury of tenderness, of fondness, of being served a meal and being made to eat it, for the ability, at last, at last, of believing a parent's reassurances, of believing that to someone he is special despite all his mistakes and hatefulness, because of all his mistakes and hatefulness.”
Hanya Yanagihara, A Little Life

Shannon Messenger
“He turned away and his hands grabbed something. A tiny purple Albertosaurus, and the note she’d given him with it. If she could’ve felt her chest, her heart would’ve skipped a beat.”
Shannon Messenger, Keeper of the Lost Cities
