Quote of the Day

“There’s nothing wrong with being a party girl. I don’t get why the world thinks there is...
It’s easier for me — when people assume the worst about what I am. It lets me see who they really are.”


~ Sarah J. Maas,
House of Earth and Blood,
(Crescent City #1)

Quote of the Day

“There’s nothing crueler than time. It stretches when you’re in pain, flies away if you’re happy, and crushes you when you remember all the years that are now gone.”
― Jeaniene Frost,
Wicked Bite
(Night Rebel #2)

Quote of the Day

All the winged, even fungus gnats, know that you cannot fly if you’re carrying too much weight with you. It’s a well-known adage, actually: “The light of heart is free to fly.”

Hollow Kingdom

“You know,” Glen Bateman said, looking out toward Grand Junction in the early light of morning, “I’ve heard the saying ‘That sucks’ for years without really being sure of what it meant. Now I think I know.”
~ Stephen King,
The Stand

Quote of the Day

“I will do whatever the Hel it takes to solve this case. Even if it means tying you to a fucking chair until you write those lists.”

She smirked. “Bondage. Nice.”

Hunt’s eyes darkened. “Do. Not. Fuck. With. Me.”

“Yeah, yeah, you’re the Umbra Mortis.”

His teeth flashed. “I don’t care what you call me, Quinlan, so long as you do what you’re told.”

Fucking alphahole.

Quote of the Day

Because music is the heart’s greatest librarian.
A few notes had the ability to transport me back in time, and to the most painful of places.
Take any song from the Rolodex of your life, and you can pin it to a memory.

~ Drive, Kate Stewart

Quote of the Day

“I tried to tell you. You said you didn’t care, remember?”

A muscle ticked below his eye. “You should have told me anyway.”

“While you had barbells within your reach? Please. I’m Disease, not Stupid.”

~ Gena Showalter, The Darkest Night
(Lords of the Underworld #1)

Quote of the Day

“There are days when solitude is a heady wine that intoxicates you with freedom, others when it is a bitter tonic, and still others when it is a poison that makes you beat your head against the wall.”
~ Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette

Quote of the Day

Image
“This is our time. Until that time stops ― for one of us, for both ― it is our time. Now. Will you waste it, because you are afraid?”
~ Diana Gabaldon,
Drums of Autumn

Quote of the Day

Image
“I have spent a great deal of my life struggling to keep myself in control,” Celia says, leaning her head against his shoulder. “To know myself inside and out, everything kept in perfect order. I lose that when I’m with you. That frightens me, and—”

“I don’t want you to be frightened,” Marco interrupts.

“It frightens me how much I like it,” Celia finishes, turning her face back to his. “How tempting it is to lose myself in you. To let go.”

~ Erin Morgenstern,
The Night Circus

Quote of the Day

“I have found that building a sandbox around a domineering child, then allowing that child to preside over it, frees the adults to do the real work.”
~ Neal Shusterman,
The Toll
(Arc of a Scythe #3)

Quote of the Day

Image
“When there’s hunger you don’t share out your food, you just devour the weakest ones.  This practice works among wolves, since it lets the healthiest and strongest individuals survive.  But among sentient races selection of that kind usually allows the biggest bastards to survive and dominate the rest.”
~ Baptism of Fire,  Andrzej Sapkowski

Quote of the Day

“How dare the embodiment of her worst nightmare come packaged as her hottest fantasy?”
― Karen Marie Moning,
The Immortal Highlander

Quote of the Day

Image
“He stepped down, trying not to look long at her, as if she were the sun, yet he saw her, like the sun, even without looking.”
~ Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Quote of the Day

Image
The first force is evolution. Humanity changing, growing, becoming better than it was. The second force is ruination. Humanity making its best effort to demonstrate its worst tendencies. A march toward self-destruction. The future is a door that can accommodate only one of those two competing forces. Will humanity evolve and become something better? Or will we cut our own throats with the knives we made?
~ Chuck Wendig, Wanderers

Quote of the Day

“If memory is unreliable, if the past and the present can simply change without warning, then fact and truth will cease to exist. How do we live in a world like that?”
~ Blake Crouch, Recursion
