So I wanted to do something special... I wanted to do a giveaway to say thank you.
I live in a world without magic or miracles. A place where there are no shapeshifters, no angels or superhuman boys to save you. A place where people die and music disintegrates and things suck. I am pressed so hard against the earth by the weight of reality that some days I wonder how I am still able to lift my feet to walk.
"She's really small and fragile-looking, and at the same time, it's like she's some exotic teenager mercenary, all rock solid, dressed in black, ready to take somebody down. None of it makes any sense. it's kind of disconcerting. She's like an optical illusion. You look at it from one angle and you see the picture and you think you've got a lock on it and then it shifts and the image changes to something entirely different and you can't even find the original picture anymore. It's a serious mindfuck."
Wonderful. last night's dinner, the charred remains of my dignity, and apparently, now, my undergarments too. What else did I leave on Josh Bennett's bathroom floor? I have to admit that, even in the midst of such utter degradation, I think it's funny that he can't seem to say the word bra.
"Not my fault that you're distractingly pretty." I have to take a minute to confirm to the pissed off part of my brain that still works that, yes, in fact, I did just say that."
"I'd ask you, you know. If I was allowed. I'd ask you a thousand times until you'd tell me. But you won't let me ask."
"It wasn't so much that I wanted to see her again," he says, looking at me with the depth of more than seventeen years in his eyes. "I wanted her to see you."
Then he shifts just slightly and I'm not kissing him anymore. He's kissing me. And when does, part of me is lost. But it's the part that's twisted and mangled and wrong, and for just that moment, with his hands in my hair and his lips on my mouth, I can pretend that it never existed.
Got it yet?
"This story has a bit of everything... There are light, and sweet moments and there are parts where I found myself laughing out loud at a passage and then turned the page and found myself rubbing that spot over my heart because it hurt and then gasping at the sadness that I experienced. There is incredibly written dialogue and so much emotion in this book. At times I felt overwhelmed by the story, but by the end it was almost like a deep breath of fresh air. And when I got to the last page... I knew I was in love."
