"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars, points of light and reason. ...And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason, for anything."

A Quick Trip to the Bookstore...
I received a few gift certificates for my birthday for Borders so I headed over there yesterday on my lunch. I grabbed a few books that I've been hearing really good things about online:
1. Hush, Hush: Becca Fitzgerald
2. Bad Girls Don't Die: Katie Alender
3. Shiver: Maggie Stiefvater
4. Meridian: Amber Kizer
Sixteen-year-old Meridian has been surrounded by death ever since she can remember. As a child, insects, mice, and salamanders would burrow into her bedclothes and die. At her elementary school, she was blamed for a classmate’s tragic accident. And on her sixteenth birthday, a car crashes in front of her family home—and Meridian’s body explodes in pain.
Before she can fully recover, Meridian is told that she’s a danger to her family and hustled off to her great-aunt’s house in Revelation, Colorado. It’s there that she learns that she is a Fenestra—the half-angel, half-human link between the living and the dead. But Meridian and her sworn protector and love, Tens, face great danger from the Aternocti, a band of dark forces who capture vulnerable souls on the brink of death and cause chaos.
5. The Monstrumologist: Rick Yancy
6. The Tear Collector: Patrick Jones
I'm really excited about all of these reads and I can't wait to start plugging away at them!!
