Thursday Quotables: Fallout

Thanks for visiting, don't forget to enter my latest giveaway!

Thursday Quotables is a fun weekly meme hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies!

My quote this week is from Fallout, the third book in the Crank series by Ellen Hopkins. The first time I read this series was years ago, but I decided to re-read them recently after remembering how much I used to love them. This series follows the life of a girl who abused drugs like meth, and how they have affected her and everyone in her life. Hopkins writes these books in a beautiful prose that is unlike anything I've ever seen before and it makes them even more interesting to read then they already are.

This quote is from the main character's daughter:
"Goddamn meth has ruined so many lives. 
Her life. 
Dad's life. 
My life. 
Friends' lives, because they use or because people they love use... It chews people up, spits 'em out, often unsalvageable. 
So why have I been a little tempted to make a spin with the monster?"
I still love this series as much as I used to! I highly recommend them to everyone of appropriate age, as they do contain a lot of adult material. It's so interesting to read about incredibly personal stories of addiction, and how drugs can ruin lives, but also what makes them appealing at the same time. (This series is based on a true story).
