"Unshed tears leave a deposit on your heart. Eventually they form a crust around it and paralyze it, the way mineral deposits paralyze a washing machine." — Susanna Tamaro, Follow Your Heart (via womanofthecathedral)
"I believe that today more than ever a book should be sought after even if it has only one great page in it. We must search for fragments, splinters, toenails, anything that has ore in it, anything that is capable of resuscitating the body and the soul." — Henry Miller, Tropic of Cancer (via hoomanao)
Random Line: Do you think there’s such a thing as a ghost who masquerades as a person? Do you believe that there are people whose bodies are still alive here on earth but whose souls are already in hell?
"I see that life itself is often more fantastic and terrible than the stories we believed as children, and that perhaps there is no harm in finding magic among the trees." — The Snow Child (via amy-k-books)
I'm a 19-year-old book blogger from Toronto, Ontario. This blog is a response to the people who ask me what books I read and what they're about. Through this blog I intend to review and blog about my interest in books. I'm currently reading The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two by Catherynne M. Valente and Where I'm Calling From by Raymond Carver.
