Taylor Jenkins Reid, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

Megan Abbott

Megan Abbott, Give Me Your Hand

Leigh Bardugo
“I would have come for you. And if I couldn't walk, I'd crawl to you, and no matter how broken we were, we'd fight our way out together-knives drawn, pistols blazing. Because that's what we do. We never stop fighting.”
Leigh Bardugo, Crooked Kingdom

Charles Bukowski
“My Dear,
Find what you love and let it kill you. Let it drain you of your all. Let it cling onto your back and weigh you down into eventual nothingness. Let it kill you and let it devour your remains. For all things will kill you, both slowly and fastly, but it's much better to be killed by a lover.
-Falsely yours”
Charles Bukowski

John Boyne
“I remember a friend of mine once telling me that we hate what we fear in ourselves,”
John Boyne, The Heart's Invisible Furies
