"The blond boy in the red trunks is holding your head underwater because he is trying to kill you, and you deserve it, you know you do, and you know this, and you are ready to die in the swimming pool because you wanted to touch his hands and lips and this means your life is over anyway. You're in eighth grade. You know these things. You know how to ride a dirt bike, and you know how to do long division, and you know that a boy who likes boys is a dead boy, unless he keeps his mouth shut, which is what you didn't do, because you are weak and hollow and it doesn't matter anymore."
Richard Siken - Crush
"Why do they blame me for all their little failings? They use my name as if I spent my entire days sitting on their shoulders, forcing them to commit acts they would otherwise find repulsive. 'The devil made me do it.' I have never made one of them do anything. Never. They live their own tiny lives. I do not live their lives for them." - Lucifer Morningstar
"My weaknesses... I wish I could come up with something. I'd probably have the same pause if you asked me what my strengths are. Maybe they're the same thing." - Al Pacino
"Vanity, definitely my favorite sin." - Al Pacino
NFM: Not For Me
Good and NFM: I DID care about the characters and enjoyed the read, very well written. But I didn't finish it because I did not get what I expected from the book and ended up a little disappointed. Or after a while I just lost interest.
