It’s that time of the year! The time when we try—and fail—to choose only ten favorite books of the year. Because we hate/suck at following the rules, we are going to mention our 14 favorite books of 2017. Five of Claudia’s favorite books and ten of my (Diana’s) favorite books because I tried choosing five but unlike my sister, I have attachment issues and my love cannot be contained in a list of five books. And no, I’m not an idiot and I know five plus ten is fifteen but we share a favorite book so that’s fourteen books total.
I’ll be there.
Through thick and thin.
Ride or die.
You can count on me.
The promises people make. The vows we take.
Assumptions of the heart.
Emotion tells us how we feel, but life…life has a way of plunging us in boiling water, burning away our illusions, testing our faith, trying our convictions.
Love floating is a butterfly, but love tested is an anchor.
For Grip and Bristol,
Love started at the top of the world
On a Ferris wheel under the stars
But when that love is tested, will they fly or fall?
Resisting an irresistible force wears you down and turns you out. I know. I’ve been doing it for years.
I may not have a musical gift of my own, but I’ve got a nose for talent and an eye for the extraordinary. And Marlon James – Grip to his fans – is nothing short of extraordinary.
Years ago, we strung together a few magical nights, but I keep those memories in a locked drawer and I’ve thrown away the key. All that’s left is friendship and work.
He’s on the verge of unimaginable fame, all his dreams poised to come true. I manage his career, but I can’t seem to manage my heart.
It’s wild, reckless, disobedient. And it remembers all the things I want to forget.
