8. What book do you plan to buy next? The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas.  I’m not sure when, but this is a book that is getting good reviews and one I want to support with my dollars.

9. Do you have any favorite quotes, would you like to share a few?

“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
“I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.”
— Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing
“The classroom was a jail of other people’s interests. The library was open, unending, free.”
Ta-Nehisi Coates, Between the World and Me
“Do not fall in love with people like me.
I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth.
I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible. And when I leave you will finally understand, why storms are named after people.”
Caitlyn Siehl, Literary Sexts: A Collection of Short & Sexy Love Poems
“She is too fond of books, and it has turned her brain.”29387827
Louisa May Alcott, Work: A Story of Experience

“If adventures will not befall a young lady in her own village, she must seek them abroad.”

Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

“for you to see beauty here
does not mean
there is beauty in me
it means there is beauty rooted
so deep within you
you can’t help but
see it everywhere”
Rupi Kaur, Milk and Honey

The Nature of This Flower Is to Bloom.
Rebellious. Living.

For its Self.
