books I’ve read in 2017: a court of mist and fury by sarah j. maas

“I painted stars and the moon and clouds and just endless, dark sky. I never knew why. I rarely went outside at night—usually, I was so tired from hunting that I just wanted to sleep. But I wonder… I wonder if some part of me knew what was waiting for me. That I would never be a gentle grower of things, or someone who burned like fire—but that I would be quiet and enduring and as faceted as the night. That I would have beauty, for those who knew where to look, and if people didn’t bother to look, but to only fear it … Then I didn’t particularly care for them, anyway. I wonder if, even in my despair and hopelessness, I was never truly alone. I wonder if I was looking for this place—looking for you all.”
