“May I suggest that you all read? And often. Believe me, it’s nice to have something to talk about other than the weather and the Queen’s health. Your mind is not a cage. It’s a garden. And it requires cultivating.””
A Great and Terrible Beauty, Libba Bray (via wordsfromya)
These books are so painfully beautiful… Not what I’d call an easy read, but so worth the effort. I can’t tell you how I cried when I reached the end of the final book. Most tears I’ve ever shed when reading.
