Waiting on Wednesday (89)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.

Try Not to Breathe by Jennifer R. Hubbard

Release Date:
January 19th, 2012

A dark and provocative novel from the author of The Secret Year.

Ryan spends most of his time alone at the local waterfall because it’s the only thing that makes him feel alive. He’s sixteen, post-suicidal, and trying to figure out what to do with himself after a stint in a mental hospital. Then Nicki barges into his world, brimming with life and energy, and asking questions about Ryan’s depression that no one else has ever been brave enough—or cared enough—to ask. Ryan isn’t sure why he trusts Nicki with his darkest secrets, but that trust turns out to be the catalyst that he desperately needs to start living again.

Jennifer R. Hubbard has created a riveting story about a difficult but important subject.

May Monday Be Merry: Along for the Ride

This blog meme is inspired by Free People's blog and their feature called "Free People Book Club".

This week's featured book is...

by Sarah Dessen

Morning would come before we knew it. It always did. But we still had the night, and for now, we were together, so I just closed my eyes and drank it all in.

What defines you isn't how many times you crash but the number of times you get back.

Friends are honest with each other. Even if the truth hurts.

It shouldn't be easy to be amazing. Then everything would be. It's the thing you fight for and struggle with before earning that have the greatest worth. When something difficult to come by, you'll do that much more to make sure it's even harder--or impossible-- to lose.

A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

Believe it or not, that was the first time I recognized that in some ways she was just like the rest of us.

What a classic, this book! Reading quote just gives me the chills. Oh, sweet, true love.

I am soooooo sorry for disappearing from the blog all of a sudden. I haven't, however, disappeared from Twitter. It's where I talk about most things I'm doing so if you're following me on Twitter, you'd know that the past few weeks have been CRAZY in school. SO CRAZY (!) that I was going to tear my hair out. And I'm sorry for abandoning my dear blogger friends and readers! The following week will make up for it. I have no deadlines at all and I will definitely make some posts. Final exams are coming very soon though so look out for that. Oh how I enjoy studying. Oh so much.
But I am BACK!!! :D
