The following is from The Girl At Midnight, by Melissa Grey which is set to release on 4/28/15, (review coming soon). I think this may be one of my new favorite literary quotes.
“Sometimes”, the Ala said, “when I’m feeling sad, I like to be around all these books. They’re very good at making you forget your troubles. It’s like having a million friends, wrapped in paper and scrawled in ink.”
