Book Quotes and Scenes

Bitten

by Kelley Armstrong

โ€œThe 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.โ€ย 

A hard cruel, but so very true statement at the end of this. It’s one of those psychological ideas that I love. The moment when an author reveals a thought or idea that leaves me in silence after reading it.

Until next time,

Shayla

This one goes to the age-old complainers of being in the friend zone. First two lines sums it up perfectly.
This is something that gets to me simply for the point they make that I see all the time. Some guys seem to think that by being kind and a friend, they are obliged to something in return. Specifically, the female booty. So no, give it a fucking rest. done, so done.
