  1. Regarding your quotes:

    I love the one about the perfect time. So very true.

    And I totally agree about creativity being an act of defiance. Makes me think of the book Matched.

    1. I haven't heard of it good? And yes I love that quote about perfect time, it's hard to do though!

    2. I loved Matched. But have yet to read the rest of the series. I definitely recommend it.
