Nightingale’s Nest by Nikki Loftin is out today!
This is Nikki’s follow up to The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy. While she was writing this novel, she confessed that it might not be a book that anyone wanted to read. Of course, I read it and disagreed—vehemently. This is the kind of book everyone should read. It’s magical and heartbreaking and it will stay with you long after you close the book. 

This is a special book. I’m not the only one who thinks so.



I’m so honored to be part of this book’s journey.

"I was engaged eight years ago, but my fiancee died in Iraq. After that, I promised myself that I’d never be that dependent on someone again. So after I met my husband, I fought marriage for the longest time. But we got married in September. And even though I was rebelling against it, and I always saw it as a meaningless formality, I’ve been surprised. There’s a comfort in knowing that you’re sworn to someone else."

Don’t talk to yourself in such a way that if you did so to a friend, it would end your friendship.

If you had a friend dealing with the same things, you wouldn’t berate that person, say, ‘You’re not working hard enough,’ ‘You suck,’ or ‘You’re not as good as [whomever].’ You’d offer your friend encouragement, you’d try to point out all the things your friend did right, and how much progress your friend had made.

You should do no less for yourself.

Be very careful how you talk to yourself. Because you are listening.

Pat Cadigan, author   (via critical-masses)

This should be so obvious by my age and yet still every time I hear it it’s a bit of a revelation.

Such good advice.
