A person entranced by a book simply forgets to breathe. The house can catch alight and a reader deep in a book will not look up until the wallpaper is in flames.
― Mister Pip, by Lloyd Jones.
Don’t let yourself be someone’s bookmark but a book worth reading again and again.
In Time With You (via blissfulennaira)
Leigh Bardugo, Shadow and Bone
There comes a point when you either embrace who and what you are, or condemn yourself to be miserable all your days. Other people will try to make you miserable; don’t help them by doing the job yourself.
Laurell K. Hamilton (via observando)
