Half the colors vanished from my world and I couldn’t breathe right until you returned. Say it, Stardust. I want to hear it. I love you, Ryodan Killian St. James. Any name, any form. Always. Love you, Stardust. Always. Across space and time. No ending. New beginnings. ~ Karen Marie Moning, High Voltage

Sun, moon, and stars , I told him. He inclined his head. Of all the years, this one with you has been my finest. Fire to my ice, Mac. Frost to my flame, Jericho. Forever , we said, and it was a vow far more powerful and binding than any ring or piece of paper. ~ Karen Marie Moning, Feversong

Quote of the Day

Image
And even if you were a pawn—maybe we all are—then you should remember that a pawn is the most magical piece of all. It might look small and ordinary but it isn’t. Because a pawn is never just a pawn. A pawn is a queen-in-waiting. All you need to do is find a way to keep moving forward. One square after another. And you can get to the other side and unlock all kinds of power. ~ Matt Haig, The Midnight Library

Elsa knew that a library card—a thing they’d taken for granted all of their lives—meant there was still a future. ~ Kristin Hannah, The Four Winds

Quote of the Day

Image
Pandemics once spread across every continent, leaving thousands dead in its wake in far less populated areas than the world has today. It’s nature’s way of...culling the herd, so to speak. Keeping population in check. Even with medical advancements, should those diseases return, it could mean eventual global extinction. Gypsy Freak ( All the Pretty Monsters #2), Kristy Cunning

“Are there weapons in a bookstore?” “It’s a store full of books, which are objects that can be thrown as well as read,” Monty replied blandly. The Crows cocked his head. “I had no idea you humans lived with so much danger.” ~ Anne Bishop, Murder of Crows

Quote of the Day

Image
Tonight, the sea was a shiver of dark glass, harboring secrets untold in her depths while on her tranquil surface stars glittered like diamonds. Life-giving, life-stealing, beautiful, a challenge to handle, worth learning to ride, full of fresh wonders every day—if he’d had a woman like the ocean in his bed, he’d still be there.... The rock smelled of a woman: dark and vast, complex as the sea. She was life and death, mercy and ruthlessness, joy and grief. Complicated. Hard to handle. Worth learning to ride. ~ Karen Marie Moning, High Voltage

“Humanity is so weird. If we’re not laughing, we’re crying or running for our lives because monsters are trying to eat us. And they don’t even have to be real monsters. They could be the ones we make up in our heads. Don’t you think that’s weird?” T.J. Klune, The House in the Cerulean Sea

Quote of the Day

Image
“You willed this ship into existence?” “I found parts of it and told myself the story of the rest of it and eventually they were the same, the found parts and the story parts. It can steer itself but I have to tell it where to go and nudge it back in the right direction sometimes. I can change the sails but they like being this color. Do you like them?” Erin Morgenstern, The Starless Sea

Quote of the Day

“We don’t lock up books in this house,” Philippe said, “only food, ale, and wine. Reading Herodotus or Aquinas seldom leads to bad behavior.” ~ Deborah Harkness, Shadow of Night

Wendy reads my mind. “What have you been doing with yourself, Murtagh the Squirter?” she shouts at full Glaswegian volume.

Quote of the Day

Image
“What nonsense,” he says. “It is because I love you that I won’t. Love is hungry. Love is selfish.” “You are thinking of possession.” He shrugs. “Are they so different? I have seen what humans do to things they love.” “People are not things,” she says. “And you will never understand them.” ~ V.E. Schwab, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

It was the third dead body he’d found while fishing, but such was the reality of a childhood spent outdoors in Florida. It was a testament to the teen’s passion for angling that he’d never considered getting a new hobby. ~ Carl Hiaasen, Squeeze Me

“Men are sheep. Where one goes, the rest will soon follow.”   — Lady Whistledown ~ Julia Quinn, The Duke and I ( Bridgertons #1)

Quote of the Day

Birds are not difficult to understand. Their behaviour tells me what they are thinking. Generally it runs along the lines of: Is this food? Is this? What about this? This might be food. I am almost certain that this is. Or occasionally: It is raining. I do not like it. ~ Susanna Clarke, Piranesi

Quote of the Day

Image
“Anyone can nurture a myth about their life if they have enough manure, so if the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence, that’s probably because it’s full of shit.” ~ Fredrik Backman, Anxious People

Quote of the Day

Image
Hate is loud, but I think you’ll learn it’s because it’s only a few people shouting, desperate to be heard. You might not ever be able to change their minds, but so long as your remember you’re not alone, you will overcome. ~ T.J. Klune, The House in the Cerulean Sea
