The greatest gift you can give someone is the space to be his or herself, without the threat of you leaving.
― Kai, Lessons in Life #39 (via psych-facts)

rules: in a text post, list 10 books that have stayed with you in some way. don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard - they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. tag 10 friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them! I was tagged by the beautiful Nicolette

  1. Looking for Alaska — John Green
  2. The Fault in our Stars — also John Green
  3. The Great Gatsby — F. Scott Fitzgerald
  4. In Cold Blood — Truman Capote

I would also like to include the His Dark Materials series, but I can’t. I think that’s a nice combination of my childhood favorites and my favorites now, though.
