The sun isn’t bright just because I say it is. It just is. It was bright before I even knew the word for bright. I didn’t decide what it is, I acknowledged what it is.

You aren’t worth something just because I say you are. You just are. You were worth something before I even said anything. I didn’t decide that you are, I acknowledged that you are.

This is what I mean when I say “You are worth it.”

Review: Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson

Review: Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson

*Trigger Warning: Wintergirls could be potentially triggering for anyone with a history of eating disorders.*

Review: Falls the Shadow by Stefanie Gaither

Review: Falls the Shadow by Stefanie Gaither

I should have DNFed this book. I’m a bit disappointed that I’ve not really read any stellar books lately, but this one takes the cake for feeling like homework.

“‘There’s always that joke that there’s a Starbucks on every corner,’ says Justin Grimes, a statistician with the Institute of Museum and Library Services in Washington. ‘But when you really think about it, there’s a public library wherever you go, whether it’s in New York City or some place in rural Montana.
