Hindsight’s a wonderful thing. If we all had it there would be no history to write about.
Kate Atkinson - Life After Life (via 49wordbooks)


"Go to bed at the end of this chapter," I told myself. "Which chapter? That one. Or…" I turned the page. "This one?"

Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.
 Angela Carter (via book-pause)


The sky is so bright tonight. I love looking at the stars and getting lost in them. Such a endless sight. I can’t wait till summer where I can read books in the night time sky. I enjoy reading so much, I don’t know why I take breaks from it. My life is in waves of randomness. Why am I up at 3am. I will finish reading my book this weekend, 1000 pages to go. Need to start a new book. Time is all I got.

Hope. It’s like a drop of honey, a field of tulips blooming in the springtime. It’s fresh rain, a whispered promise, a cloudless sky, the perfect punctuation mark at the end of a sentence.
Unravel Me, Tahereh Mafi (via bananasforbooks)
Reading was my escape and my comfort, my consolation, my stimulant of choice: reading for the pure pleasure of it, for the beautiful stillness that surrounds you when you hear an author’s words reverberating in your head.
Paul Auster, The Brooklyn Follies (via lonechastesoul)


Sometimes I wish I would just spend all my money, buy a ton of books and hide out somewhere and just read all 1100+. 

…Sadly, I have to be a responsible adult; it sucks. =[


Ok seriously, someone needs to talk to me about Frankenstein. I am loving this book and there’s so much meaning and it’s been half of what I’ve been thinking about since I started it but I am completely unable of comprehending my feelings on it into words like, there’s so much I don’t know what to say there’s definently a fuck you victor somewhere in there but this is really hard its just too deep for my mind to work properly with


Nothing refreshes the soul quite like arriving at the last page of an engrossing book.

nucleic-acid-rock asked: im looking for some good books about the mafia. not Wiseguy by Pileggi tho

Anyone can help answer this question?


how do you guys feel about quitting a book that you aren’t enjoying? because I have this weird obsession with finishing them but all that ends up doing is making me read LESS because I don’t enjoy it so I don’t actively read as much but I won’t let myself move on to a new book because I haven’t finished this one yet and aarrrggghhhhhhh it’s driving me crazy
