Quote of the Week - Glass's Quote Mix

      One of the reasons all of us like to read is all the wisdom and power messages we find in our books. They make us think about certain things we never new could happen or recognize some of our own thoughts.
      Today I will do something little bit different. We usually post our favorite quotes from recent reads, but this time I want to share with you few of my favorite passages talking about identity. Who am I as a person? What defines me? Is my "normal" same as your "normal"?


"Don’t worry about wanting to change; start worrying when you don’t feel like changing anymore. And in the meantime, enjoy every version of yourself you ever meet, because not everybody who discovers their true identity likes what they find."

Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John


 "You're just trying on different identities, like everyone in those Shakespeare plays. And the people we pretend at, they're already in us. That's why we pretend them in the first place."

"I realize then that its not enough to know what someone is called. You have to know who they are."

" This is myself, baby. All of my selves. I own each and every one of them. I know who I'm pretending to be and who I am." The look he gives me is withering. "Do you?"

Just One Day by Gayle Forman

"I gaze out at the glittering sea, the breathtaking sky above it, and think of birds and the moment before the fall, and how my sister as a child had been strong enough for the both of us, and I wonder when exactly that changed. I don't know when, but it did. Jake was right - I'm strong in a way June never was. Because I know that I want to be here. Even with the pain. Even with the ugliness. I've seen the other side - marching side by side down city streets with people who all believe they can change the world and the view of the sunset from Fridgehenge and Tom Waits lyrics and doing the waltz and kisses so hot they melt into each other and best friends who hold your hand and stretching out underneath a sky draped with stars and everything else.There is so much beauty in just existing. In being alive. I don't want to miss a second."

Saving June by Hannah Harrington


"Normal is an ideal. But it’s not reality. Reality is brutal, it’s beautiful, it’s every shade between black and white, and it’s magical. Yes, magical. Because every now and then, it turns nothing into something."

Harmonic Feedback by Tara Kelly

      Have you read this books? Did you like them? Hate them? Thought that there was just  too big hype and they are nothing special? Or are some of them your all time favorites?

Happy reading,
