I’m not the type of person to physically write in a book (it pains me!), but I am a “flagger”. There are so many talented authors out there that have an incredible way with words, and reading them once just isn’t enough for me. So, I will highlight quotes or sections in an e-book, or literally put a little flag sticky on a page while I’m reading. I’ll then revisit my flags or highlights and write down the memorable words in a notebook. In this feature, I plan to share some of my favorite quotes with you! Up today:
War is not monstrous for making corpses of men so much as it is for making machines of them.
– Morning Star by Pierce Brown
I chose this quote today because I’m currently reading Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys, a story set in World War II, so the theme of war is on my mind. Morning Star is the final book in Brown’s Red Rising series. For anyone who hasn’t read the series yet, what the heck are you waiting for? Definitely one of the best that I have read in a while, I can’t recommend it enough. I am slightly jealous for anyone who starts the series now, because there won’t be any agony encountered while waiting for the next book to be released!
