Quotes by Nahoko Uehashi  (?)

“I know what the world is like. Nobody does anything unless there's something in it for themselves. But there are some people who do more than they have to for what they get in return, and those people are kind right to the heart.”
Nahoko Uehashi, Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit

“It's strange, but once you learn to fight, you seem to attract enemies...Sooner or later, those who master the art of combat must end up fighting.”
Nahoko Uehashi, Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit

“No matter where you go, you'll find that people in high positions like to make themselves look good. A general, for example, must always be a hero, because who will respect him if he is a coward? I've traveled to many countries and heard many stories, and a victory in battle is always the general's, even when it's won by the hard work of ordinary soldiers. And when time passes, these stories often develop into legends.”
Nahoko Uehashi, Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit

July '18 "Underrated & Unappreciated" Book ?

July is fast approaching, and so it’s time to vote for next’s month Underrated & Unappreciated book. Originally the books set for July were said to be final. However, the book chosen for Underrated and Unappreciated, (The Poppy War - R.F Kuang) is still a new release. It came out last month, May 1st. And as the rules go, all books must have been on market for a whole tree months prior. This rule was to assure that everyone had an easy time going about acquiring the books. New releases can prove a struggle to find.

That said many of us, myself included, were looking forward to reading Poppy War.

So after some consideration, I've decided to put it in to vote. All in favor with continuing along and reading The Poppy War - R.F Kuang.

Or

Those who'd rather read a book a little more accessible. For which I picked two highly underrated books.

- Forest of a Thousand Lanterns - Julie C. Dao

- Morbito: The Guardian of the Spirit - Nahoko Uehashi


Poll will last a week. Book with the most votes win. Please vote considerable.

Note: Shall The Poppy War lose the vote, we will be having a group buddy read of the book. So no worries to those who've already went about retrieving the book.
