Honey Girl (Original) | Morgan Rogers

"Grace looks at Ximena. She is Grace‘s steady thing, her roots digging into the earth like an orange grove tree. Grace waits and Ximena‘s fingers tangle in her own. I‘m here, they say. Give me a minute, I‘m here."

Honey Girl (Original) | Morgan Rogers

"She shoves between the two of them, their solid and steady person. They lean on her, and she lets them."

Dowry of Blood | S T Gibson

"I am not your wife anymore, my lord, and I don‘t think you ever truly saw me as a whole woman. I was always a student. A project. An accessory in the legal and decorative sense."

quote

"By the sky above, she wanted to be enough."

"“Camel. He spit,” the man warned, this time in Balladairan. The camel continued to size her up. It didn‘t look like it was coming to any good conclusion."

quote
morevna

"It was a sticky thing, his need, with tentacles that would strangle her if they could."

quote
morevna

"She had not realised before that she hated men. But she did, and this was one of the reasons why: this incessant demand for sympathy and interest from every woman in the vicinity."

"In hell, as in every other world, man was man's greatest enemy."

"Resignation to unhappiness didn't come naturally—she had to learn it."

Blanca & Roja | Anna-Marie McLemore

"We painted the woods that night. We gave it the colors we were and the colors we borrowed. We were opening our hands. We were giving up the stories we thought we already knew. We were becoming."

The Hazel Wood | Melissa Albert

"Fairy tales teach you the importance of precise communication."

The Hazel Wood | Melissa Albert

"I shook my head. I felt stunned and hollow, looking at this stranger my mother might have loved. I would never reach the bottom of what Ella gave up for me. I would never know all the secrets of the life she left behind to run with me."

quote

The Hazel Wood | Melissa Albert

"It‘s not Peter Pan,” I said firmly. “It‘s freedom.” She looked at my eyes and smiled. “All the ice is out of you,” she said. “Even that little bit I could see way down at the bottom. My angry girl.”

Written in the Stars: A Novel | Alexandria Bellefleur

"So far, the verdict was out, the inner workings of one Elle Jones less of a neat little package to be unwrapped and more like a clown car full of increasingly random and terrifyingly endearing quirks."

Wild Beauty | Anna-Marie McLemore

"Her heart was poison. It was a close tangle of thorns. Even when it held love, that love came sharp, and she didn‘t know how to offer it to anyone except with the edges out."

quote

Wild Beauty | Anna-Marie McLemore

"How he looked didn‘t matter to him. In a man, not caring was a draw, a mark of confidence. In Estrella, who‘d worn her eyeliner until it smudged and her ball dress until it wilted, the same not-trying looked sloppy. What shamed a girl was, in a boy, so often worth showing off."

Gideon the Ninth | Tamsyn Muir

"Gideon marvelled that someone could live in the universe only seventeen years and yet wear black and sneer with such ancient self-assurance.”

Gideon the Ninth | Tamsyn Muir

“He had the eyes of a very beautiful person, trapped in resting bitch face.”

My emotional gut took a critical hit by this book and my heart felt like it needed to sit down for a while to recover. 11/10 would recommend if you love suffering

thewallflower0707 It‘s waiting on my bookshelf for me! 2y
morevna @thewallflower0707 I really loved it and can't wait to get into the second book. Just accept that you don't understand everything at the beginning and roll with it. It's so worth it! 2y

Summer of Salt | Katrina Leno

This book was one of the best I've read this year. It's been months and my mind still goes back to it, to the Fernweh women, to that feeling this book evoked inside of me. It definitely touched me and will stay with me for a while. I miss this little world.

Wild Beauty | Anna-Marie McLemore

"That night, behind the door of that room they had put him in, he broke open. All the color, all the things he did not know, the paths of scarring under his fingers, broke him open. He bit the backs of his hands so he would not cry onto the wooden horses."

quote

Wild Beauty | Anna-Marie McLemore

"They had pretended they were there to clean it, and because men who stood so proud in pressed slacks and wrinkled shirts were used to having brown-skinned women wait on them, he seemed not to notice."

quote

Wild Beauty | Anna-Marie McLemore

"Every woman in this house had inherited it, the same way they had inherited the loss and broken hearts written into their blood."

quote

The Scapegracers | Hannah Abigail Clarke

"Something was blooming in my throat, and if I didn‘t open my mouth, it might strangle me from the inside out."

quote
morevna

"“This is me.”His hand slips free of hers, and there it is, that old familiar fear, of endings, of something giving way to nothing, of moments unwritten and memories erased. She doesn‘t want the night to end."

quote

Wild Beauty | Anna-Marie McLemore

"Dalia‘s words came broken. They rose between sobs a few at a time. Estrella caught them and strung them together."

quote
morevna
Wild Beauty | Anna-Marie McLemore

"But now he wanted this. He wanted this painted world that thrilled him even as it frightened him. He wanted to understand the language of women who laughed with tears dampening their cheeks, even if he would never speak it. He wanted the color of this unknown life. He wanted to grow the kind of bright, fearless heart that lived in this girl."

quote
morevna
Wild Beauty | Anna-Marie McLemore

"She turned back, so quickly Reid did not notice. She kissed her fingertips and blew air over her palms at her cousins. It made her look like she was starting off on a trip and would bring them all back glittering stories as souvenirs."

quote

Ninth House | Leigh Bardugo

"Darlington was a good talker, but he was happiest when no one was speaking to him, when he didn‘t have to perform the ritual of himself and he could simply be left to watch others. "

quote

Gone Girl | Gillian Flynn

"There's a difference between really loving someone and loving the idea of her."

White Oleander | Janet Fitch

"Always learn poems by heart. They have to become the marrow in your bones. Like fluoride in the water, they'll make your soul impervious to the world's soft decay."

quote

White Oleander | Janet Fitch

"If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you'll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way."

The Dogs I Have Kissed | Trista Mateer

"I‘m sorry that I am back and forth, push and pull instead of effortless simplicity."

quote
morevna

"If you see a woman who is working super hard to become who she‘s meant to be and to achieve the things she wants to achieve, and you have nothing to add to her life or to give back to her in any way, please just leave her the fuck alone."

quote
morevna

"No, no, let‘s make this look like something I recognize. Let‘s ruin everything."

quote
morevna

"You don‘t have a foundation, so you look everywhere for one, which means the weight of any one connection is so heavy, so important, so delicate. If you lose it, what else will you have? And it has definitely kept me in a ton of awful friendships and relationships because I‘d felt like I had nothing or no one else to fall back on."

quote
morevna

"(...) I sometimes wonder if my imagination is so intense because I spent so much of my life imagining this was not my reality."

quote
morevna

"I knew them growing up and I‘ve seen their photos in photo albums and I know they know who I am and I know what they do for work. Kind of. But mostly I just see them as people who could‘ve saved me and didn‘t."

quote
morevna

"When it‘s not that simple, or you don‘t have any of that information, it‘s that much easier to go your whole life thinking it‘s just you; you‘re too sensitive, you‘re wrong, you need too much, you could fix your relationship with them if you wanted to, if you would just do the right thing, whatever that is, only God knows, but you should die trying."

quote
morevna

"I always think she‘ll be mad at me, she‘ll hate me now, she‘ll leave. And she doesn‘t!!! That‘s a thing??? You can be not perfect and still be loved? THAT‘S SO COOL!"

quote

Pretty Girls: A Novel | Karin Slaughter

"The thought of hearing his windpipe crack was the only thing that kept her going."

quote

The Raven Boys | Maggie Stiefvater

"Shoving his hands in his pockets, he rubbed his cheek on his shoulder. “So you think I should listen to her?”“No, you should listen to me.” Adam‘s hastily constructed smile was thin enough to break. “And what do you say?” Blue was suddenly afraid for him. “Keep being brave.”"

The Dream Thieves | Maggie Stiefvater

"“And you, Ronan,” Niall said. He always said Ronan differently from other words. As if he had meant to say another word entirely — something like knife or poison or revenge — and then swapped it out for Ronan‘s name at the last moment. “When you were born, the rivers dried up and the cattle in Rockingham County wept blood.”
