I wish I had a hickey or 12
— Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (via wordsnquotes)
better than the whole emo revival
A boy recommended a book to me. It’s his favorite and he wasn’t sure if I’d like it because all of his friends think he’s weird and he likes to memorize the first lines of things he thinks are important. I was ready to pick through the strange to find the pieces worth complimenting. But here we are.
this book is seriously so heart-wrenchingly poignant and consuming, and I was ill-prepared. it snuck up on me.
I’m probably going to stay up tonight to finish it.
