Sometimes you need to remind yourself that you were the one who carried you through the heartache. You are the one who sits with the cold body on the shower floor, and picks it up.

Having the strength to take care of yourself when everyone around you is trying to bleed you dry, that is the strongest thing in the universe.

Aleksander Morozova, the Darkling from the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. All of Leigh’s characters are great, but I love a sympathetic villain.
Companion piece to Alina Starkov (which I gave to Leigh at a signing, and that was an awesome night!).
Haha, I hope you didn’t think I was done with this series.
