A Love for the Written Word

"I wanted to find a place to hide from all of it, where the nightmares and the rivers and reality couldn't find me. For me, that place was always inside a book."

Montañez 1 - Martha Cecilia
"Time couldn't heal his wounds. Because time had stood still."
"“Shrinking in a corner,
pressed into the wall;
do they know I'm present,
am I here at all?

Is there a written rule book,
that tells you how to be—
all the right things to talk about—
that everyone has but me?

Slowly I am withering—
a flowered deprived of sun;
longing to belong to—
somewhere or someone.” "
Love & Misadventure - Lang Leav

"You do not write your life with words...You write it with actions. What you think is not important. It is only important what you do."

I read this book in one sitting. The story just gripped me from beginning 'till the end. And yes, it made me cry.It's a good thing i read this late at night, on my bed, because that kind of crying is best done in private.

I recommend this book to everyone. Young and old alike.

In Silence - Erica Spindler
Happiness is like the ocean. Sometimes swelling, sometimes retreating. Constantly shifting. Sudden swells are what make it all so much fun.

The Summer I Became a Nerd - Leah Rae Miller
"People are going to judge you for all kinds of reasons for the rest of your life. Because you vote one way or the other, because you go to one school or the other, because you look a certain way. It's a fact of life. You can't make everyone happy. But you can make you happy."
