Favourite Books —To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
June Book Photo Challenge || Day Twenty-Six
- [I know these aren’t traveling books, but both Cormoran Strike novels came all the way from England and I bought The Casual Vacancy while on my way to the hospital and read it while traveling to and from there since it came out the same day I had a MRI scheduled!]
I was surprised Monday with the arrival of The Silkworm, which I wasn’t expecting to arrive until the 9th of July since that’s the date Amazon UK gave. I guess Royal Mail knew I needed a pick-me-up! It arrived in better shape than The Cuckoo’s Calling did last year, so that was another real plus.
Yeah, Mom, I’ll just keep telling the prince that he has absolutely no shot with me and offend him as often as I can. Great plan.
- The Selection, Kiera Cass
“If you stay, I’ll do whatever you want. I’ll quit the band, go with you to New York. But if you need me to go away, I’ll do that, too. I was talking to Liz and she said maybe coming back to your old life would just be too painful, that maybe it’d be easier for you to erase us. And that would suck, but I’d do it. I can lose you like that if I don’t lose you today. I’ll let you go. If you stay.”

The sole source of consolation
"But in spite of that, I believe it’s true. I hear the nurse’s words again. I am running the show. Everyone is waiting on me. I decide. I know this now. And it terrifies me more than anything else that has has happened today"

∆ The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
"Listen," Kristy said, "the truth is, nothing is guaranteed. You know that more than anybody." She looked at me hard, making sure I knew what she meant. I did. "So don’t be afraid. Be alive.”
"It’s the same thing," I told her.
"Being afraid and being alive."
"No," she said slowly, and now it was as if she was speaking a language she knew at first I wouldn’t understand, the very words, not to mention the concept, being foreign to me. "Macy, no. It’s not"
YA meme: [2/10] ten series or books: Anna and the French Kiss
Nine quotes from Looking For Alaska. ^________^
Book Recs: If I Stay & Where She Went by Gayle Forman“But I’d do it again. I know that now. I’d make that promise a thousand times over and lose her a thousand times over to have heard her play last night or to see her in the morning sunlight. Or even without that. Just to know that she’s somewhere out there. Alive.”
THEY LOOK SP PRETTY ALL TOGETHER :D

“He stood and went to read my pin as I approached. “America, is it?” he said, a smile playing on his lips.
“Yes, it is. And I know I’ve heard your name before, but could you remind me?”
