by Taylor Jenkins Reid
And now that I’ve finished it, maybe I can finally get some sleep.
I’ve stayed up way too late finishing another book by Taylor Jenkins Reid because her stuff is just so good and really resonates with me. I love her writing style.
I particularly loved these passages:
I’ve already started another one of her novels, but I have to force myself to give it up for tonight.
I haven’t been this enamored with an author for a while. I love it when this happens.
The song the quote comes from actually played on the way home from the winery last night, and it made me smile. It felt very appropriate in that moment, with the breeze in my hair, as I gazed up at the stars, and the husband and I discussed how happy we are with our lives right now.
And finally, the quote:
The future is no place to place your better days.
There will come a time in your practice when, despite your very best efforts, someone has got to go to jail. When that time comes, make sure…it’s the client!
– Thurman Arnold
I am both worse and better than you thought.
– Sylvia Plath
Our anxiety does not come from thinking about the future, but from wanting to control it.
– Khalil Gibran
I think it’s important to realize you can miss something, but not want it back.
– Paulo Coelho
Her mother was dead, but what could be worse than knowing your mother was alive somewhere but she wanted a man who hit her more than she wanted you?
