The library is the birthplace of silence?”
“All the words are being used by the books.[…]  People were told to be quiet so that all their words didn’t get stolen by the books. I thought books needed words to exist.
—  P.S. I Like You by Kasie West

one of my all time favorite trilogies of a sort, even though they can each be read as a standalone. anna’s story is still my favorite of the three, though isla is my favorite character, and… i like all thee of the guys so i couldn’t possible choose one of those!

The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.

Have you really read all those books in your room?”

Alaska laughing- “Oh God no. I’ve maybe read a third of ‘em. But I’m going to read them all. I call it my Life’s Library. Every summer since I was little, I’ve gone to garage sales and bought all the books that looked interesting. So I always have something to read.

Red: For the flaming passion she felt for the first time.

Blue: For the calming peace she found from the mountain climb.

Green: For the freedom she must fight for, so she can once more call him “mine”.
