I love reading novel books about Mystery, Dystopian, Fantasy, and Science Fiction.

  • I gave a lot of people the title, “Best-Friends” even when they weren’t there for me. Even when none stood up for me. Even when I looked over my shoulder and saw no one. Even when I wanted to lean on them, hoping they’d catch me but never did. Even when I wanted someone to hold me just for 5 seconds and let my tears fall, but no one did.  So I laugh, head thrown back, eyes clenched tightly—as they smile at me and say, “What are Best friends for ? - Vee
The Return of Sherlock Holmes -  Arthur Conan Doyle

One of my fav book !

  • I am not attracted to book smart. I could care less about your college degree. I am attracted to raw intelligence. Anyone can sit behind a desk. I want to know what you know beyond the realm of our society. And only living and seeking can give you that intelligence. We’ve got time. Let’s sit on the rooftop at 2am and introduce me to your mind. - Vee

So I’ve decided I’m going to spent this summer with my nose in a book and not in my phone. So now I need recommendations of good books to read. Send me the name of your favorite book and I’ll look it up!

And as much as I hate to say it, I just realized that as I grew older, I already accepted that some people will not always be there for me every time I need them. That no matter how wide I opened my door, they would never come in. That no matter how loud I shouted their names, they wouldn’t turn around and face me. I already accepted the fact that they also have their own problems—to solve. That sometimes they need to save themselves first. It wasn’t being a bad friend nor a selfish one. But it was just us human beings wanting and searching for a mean to survive. And yes, I understand, even if it broke my heart not only once but too many times.

The world is blue at its edges and its depths. This blue is the light that got lost. Light at the blue end of the spectrum does not travel the whole distance from the sun to us. It disperses among the molecules of the air, it scatters in the water. Water of colorless, shallow water appears to be the color of whatever lies underneath it, but deep water is full of this scattered light, the purer the water the deeper the blue. The sky is blue for the same reason, but the blue at the horizon, the blue of the land that seems to be dissolving into the sky, is a deeper, dreamier, melancholy blue, the blue at the farthest reaches of the places where you see for miles, the blue of distance. This light does not touch us, does not travel the whole distance, the light that gets lost, gives us the beauty of the world, so much of which is the color blue.

  1. To me it's all about trust and loyalty. I need someone I can trust to be myself with. Someone who won't spill my secrets to another person, even if it's someone who they trust and are close to. I need someone who is loyal. I've had too many people just leave from my life walk out, just like that. Too many who have replace me. I need someone who won't simply ditch me for someone else because they're funner, or more open, or belong to another crowd. I need someone I can count on. Because I'd be willing to do all of that for someone, and so much more.

     

     

Right now, there are people all over the world who are just like you. They're lonely. They're missing somebody. They're in love with someone they probably shouldn't be in love with. They have secrets you wouldn't believe. They wish, dream, hope, and they look out the window whenever they're in the car or on a bus or a train & they watch the people on the streets & wonder what they've been through. They wonder if there are people out there like them. They're like you & you could tell them everything & they would understand. You're never alone.

Dear Aaron - Mariana Zapata
Reblogged from christina's book corner:
I shrieked. I could be woman enough to admit that I shouted at the top of my lungs the second something brushed my leg in the water. I could also be woman enough to admit that when whatever it was touched me, and I yelled in this high-pitched voice that could have made a dog howl, I jumped. I jumped in the air. I projected myself at the closest thing to me despite being hip-deep in the water. That closest thing being six feet two inches of man named Aaron. Except at that point, Aaron hadn’t been facing me or had his back to me, we had been practically beside each other, and it was only his lightning-quick reflexes at hearing me shout that he managed to catch me right before I barreled into him.
A Game of Thrones / A Clash of Kings - George R.R. Martin

One of my fav book !

 

 

 

 

For Those People

This is for those who to stay up at night listening music or reading book to escape their current situation. For those who hide their fears, hurt, pain and tears under their smiles on a daily basis. For those who wear their heart on their sleeve. For those who pray that things will work out just once. Just. This. Once.

For those who scream and cry into their pillows because everyone else fails to listen. For those who have many secret but won't tell a soul. For those who have it hard but don't let anyone know. For those who never have it easy but never give up. For those carrying regrets and mistakes. For those who stay up night thinking about that someone and hoping they'll be noticed one day. For those who take life as it comes and who are hoping that it'll get better somewhere down the road. For those who love with all their hearts although they've been hurt so many times before. For those who think it's over. Just know this. It's going to be okay and you are not alone. Your day will come and all that love you want and need will come and stay.

Reblogged from Elaine White's Life in Books:
“You're a special kind of something, aren't you?” Oliver whispered, leaning so close that Mason's brain immediately shut down and focused solely on his companion. And the hand that slid onto his thigh and gently squeezed. And the tongue that flicked out to briefly wet those tempting lips. “You want to take this upstairs?”
Good God! If he knew the Backstreet Boys could do that, he'd have belted out a little shameless 'If You Want It To Be Good Girl' hours ago!

Be Yourself

You must learn that you cannot be loved by all people 

You can be the finest apple in the world - ripe, juicy, sweet,

succulent and offer yourself to all.

But you must remember . . . 

that there will be people who do not like apples.

 

You must understand that if you are the world's finest apple,

and someone you love does not like apples,

you have the choice of becoming a banana.

But you must be warned that if you choose to become a banana,

you will be a second rate banana.

But you can always be the finest apple.

 

You must also realize,

that if you choose to be a second rate banana,

there will be people who do not like bananas.

 

Furthermore . . .

You can spend your life trying to become the best banana

which is impossible if you are an apple 

or you can seek again to be the finest apple.

The future something which everyone reaches at the rate of 60 minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.
