There’s something about sitting alone in the dark that reminds you how big the world really is, and how far apart we all are. The stars look like they’re so close, you could reach out and touch them. But you can’t. Sometimes things look a lot closer than they are.
Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl, Beautiful Darkness
I was tagged to do the #magicalbooks tag so I chose the Beautiful Creatures series. It’s so gorgeous and I don’t take nearly enough pictures of it! I am in the small minority of people it seems who really loved this series. I watched the movie first, which I also loved, and I wanted to know what the rest of the series was about. (Side Note: The movie and the book are actually nothing alike.)
I said it, just like that. No stupid jokes, no changing the subject. For once, I wasn’t embarrassed, because it was the truth. I had fallen. I think I had always been falling. And she might as well know, if she didn’t already, because there was no going back now. Not for me.

“The poems are all wrong. It’s a bang, a really big bang. Not a whimper. And sometimes gold can stay. Anybody’s who’s ever been in love can tell you that.”
