the gospel of winter

Books that made me cry. They all made me cry for different reasons, but I do have to say that Tricks by Ellen Hopkins​ was super mentally draining, so reader beware. If you’re already feeling super depressed, I wouldn’t read it.

I combined three recommendation posts I came across in the “Alice Isn’t Dead” tag. Here ya go (bolded were repeated on these posts):

a thousand year cold war

there is a thousand years of memories between them, of times long past and boys long dead, and there is another century of inertia ahead of them as they struggle to fix their puzzle-piece masks.

a mix for two weapons at cold war, who shift and evolve but are never used, an ever-present threat and a constant reminder of a past that cannot be changed./IMAGE ARTIST

skulls - bastille / help i’m alive - metric / c'mon - panic! at the disco & fun / marlboro lights - natalia kills / fear of my identity - best coast / the boys are too refined - the hush sound / guilty filthy soul - awolnation / this is gospel - panic! at the disco / who we are - imagine dragons
