"Book collecting is an obsession an occupation, a disease, an addiction, a fascination, an absurdity, a fate. It is not a hobby. Those who do it must do it. Those who do not do it, think of it as a cousin of stamp collecting, a sister of the trophy cabinet, bastard of a sound bank account and a weak mind."

The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton
thetwinsread said: To Anonymous1: The Girl of Fire and Thorns and The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson. The last book will be released soon. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes is also good.
To Anonymous2: Corrine Jackson’s If I Lie, and Morgan Matson’s Second Chance Summer.

The Fault In Our Stars
The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Thirteen Reasons Why
TFioS was the only one I truly ugly cried while reading though.
justbeccaz said: for the first anon, i haven’t read either of those books, but from the rest of your description, i would recommend the Seven Realms series by Cinda Williams Chima, which are TOTALLY AWESOME. the Heir Chronicles are also pretty good

dianneece said: "Please Ignore Vera Dietz" by A.S. King is pretty good for crying, but so is "The Book Thief" by Marcus Zusak. Or "If I Stay" by Gayle Foreman…I think.
