Book Quotes and Scenes

Bitten

by Kelley Armstrong

It’s been so long since my last reread of this series and this quote hit me right in the gut when I read it again. Honest and brutal are the two words to use.
But undeniable.

“The show’s writers had peppered the piece with words like “savage,” “wild,” and “animalistic.” What bullshit. Show me the animal that kills for the thrill of watching something die. Why does the stereotype of the animalistic killer persist?
Because humans like it. It neatly explains things for them, moving humans to the top of the evolutionary ladder and putting killers down among mythological man-beast monsters like werewolves.
The truth is, if a werewolf behaved like this psychopath it wouldn’t be because he was part animal, but because he was still too human. Only humans kill for sport.” 

Armstrong’s writing abilities shined through here.
Thoughts on this one?

Until next time,

Mind Games

by Kiersten White

I just finished this book awhile ago and posted the review, some of those lines stuck with me, sooo here they are for you guys.

“I start at the beginning, mentally screaming every obscenity I can in alphabetical order. Then I start setting them to the tune of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”

This is a book with mind readers remember. Not a bad solution.

“I turn and walk out, knowing exactly how many steps will take me away from that monster. Once again wishing I were Fia, Fia who could have killed him with her bare hands.
Fia who is impossible broken because she can do just that.”

Annie made me like her more here.
And finally,

“Their smiles are lies.
Most smiles are.”
Kiersten White, Mind Games
