“…she stopped paying close attention to his words and when at red lights, examined the rain drops spattering on the windshield so intently that she almost stared right through them. Each drop seemed stuck on the glass, until another drop landed on it and they rolled down the window together, ending in a climactic splash.”

I post and reblog: things I think are pretty, things that intrigue me, things I'm a fan of, and things I care about.

Common themes include: books, writing, movies, more books, cozy beds, breakfasts, Doctor Who, Sherlock, feminist issues, and occasional pieces of my life.

"It’s like you become more you, which normally is like ‘bleuugh-poof!’ but now it’s okay, because the person, like, whoever, they chose to take that all on: all that weird stuff, whatever’s wrong or bad or hiding in you. Suddenly it’s all right. You don’t feel like such a freak anymore." — Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren on love - Orange Is The New Black

"I do not need someone to complete me
but if you wanted to
we could walk next to each other
into whatever is coming next." — Meghan Lynn (via lullabysounds)

but it’s like setting yourself on fire
and trying to put the flames out with their name." — Azra.T “reversal”  (via arbolae)

"I’d love to see more books where the characters get together earlier in the story. While the yearning portions of books are lovely and make us flip their pages, I’d love to see more stories where healthy romantic relationships are depicted. Where the curtain isn’t dropped with the suggestion of coupling up = happily ever after. Novels that take us past that point and depict a young couple working out some of their early insecurities and issues; that show us the romance and heartache of settling into a relationship. Like the moment when you’ve hung up on your boyfriend/girlfriend for the first time and you’re cradling your phone, praying they’ll know you want them to call back. Or you’ve slammed a door and you hope they’re waiting on the other side figuring out the perfect words to transform the emotions inside you from anger and hurt to comfort and passion.
Relationships are not a destination. They’re not an end-point. They’re always a journey. They should always be challenging and growing and evolving." — Tiffany Schmidt, on what makes for a good contemporary romance in YA fiction. She also offers up an excellent reading list of current and forthcoming contemporary novels with well-done romances for YA fiction fans.   (via yahighway)

"For love is a flower that grows in any soil, works its sweet miracles undaunted by autumn frost or winter snow, blooming fair and fragrant all the year, and blessing those who give and those who receive." — Louisa May Alcott, from Little Men 



"

I fall in love with everything. I also hate everything. It’s very hard to be a misanthrope and a romantic.
