“Babies are such blank slates. They don’t come into this world with the assumptions their parents have made, or the promises their church will give, or the ability to sort people into groups they like and don’t like. They don’t come into this world with anything, really, except a need for comfort. And they will take it from anyone, without judging the giver. I wonder how long it takes before the polish given by nature gets worn off by nurture.”

  1. Great picks for this survey, also it seems like you had a great 2016 when it came to read, hopefully 2017 will be an even better year for you. ❤ 😀
    I've been hearing so many amazing things about Adam Silvera's books recently, I've added both More Happy Than Not and History is All You Left Me to my to-read list and I can't wait to get started on both. Also I really hope you enjoy both More Than This and Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness, both are two of my favourite books by him! 😀
