The Lover's Dictionary - David Levithan Holy shit. This book took my breath away on the very first page - everything in it rang so true to me. I am absolutely certain that he and I said those exact same words to each other the first night we were together, and that we meant the exact same thing. If you've ever loved someone in that kind of way that you think your life will never be the same without him, or if you've ever had your heart broken in that kind of way that you feel like you'll never be able to get out of bed again, every single word in this book will tear out a little piece of your heart.

Aberrant, adj. - "I don't normally do this kind of thing," you said. "Neither do I," I assured you. Later, it turned out we had both found ourselves falling too fast before. But we comforted ourselves with what we really meant to say, which was: "I don't normally feel this good about what I'm doing." Measure the hope of that moment, that feeling. Everything else will be measured against it.
