“It’s not suppose to be this way. The artists, and the scientists, and the poets - none of them fitted in at 17. We’re suppose to get passed it. Adults - they see kids killing kids, and they know it’s a tragedy because they used to be those kids - the bullies, and the beaten, and the loners. We’re supposed to get passed it. You’re supposed to live long enough to take it back. Just take it back.”

funnilybookish  asked:

Are Colleen Hoovers other books really good? It seems like a lot of people love her books, but I read Slammed and I thought the writing wasn't great and the story was one cliché after another. I'm just curious whether or not her others are worth reading since I didn't like Slammed.

I’ve yet to read the Slammed series, but I’m read Hopeless and Maybe Someday and loved them both. I’m already loving Losing Hope as well. I say give them a try.

Sometimes I think that everyone has a tragedy waiting for them, that the people buying milk in their pajamas or picking their noses at stoplights could only be moments away from disaster. That everyone’s life, no matter how unremarkable, has a moment when it will become extraordinary-a single encounter after which everything that really matters will happen.
—  Ezra Faulkner, The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider
