  25. This was one of my favorite lines from The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima. I liked it so much that i put it on my sidebar as my quote.

    Eventually, your story grew into a legend until you didn't know who you were anymore and what you were capable of. The Violent battle for turf, swag, and survival became addictive, so that school and family life seemed a dull backdrop for the adrnaline reality of the streets."
    page 196 of The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima

    'I love you,' she murmured. 'I love you so much, I'm stupid about it.'
    With a sigh, she settled down, closed her eyes, and willed her mind to empty.
    Beside her, Roarke smiled into the dark. He never slept first." -Ceremony in Death by JD Robb
