    Great list honey! I think RR’s quote was my favourite.

    “Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.”

    I love your quotes, great choices. The Throne of Glass one is beautiful and Eleanor & Park is a favourite. I had a nostalgic moment when I got to Ad astra per aspera… It was my high school motto!
