“She would bloom where she was planted and let her roots close around the throats of her enemies.”
Julie C. Dao, Forest of a Thousand Lanterns

“She was a monster, a bride of the darkness, and she rose to face her destiny as though it were the blood-red sunrise of a new day.”
Julie C. Dao, Forest of a Thousand Lanterns

“But in weakness, you find your strength. It takes no small amount of courage to open yourself up,” the Empress said gently. “You leave pieces of yourself in the ones you love. Is that not the greatest power, to endure in that way?”
Julie C. Dao, Forest of a Thousand Lanterns

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.

“There is something called the rapture of the deep, and it refers to what happens when a deep-sea diver spends too much time at the bottom of the ocean and can't tell which way is up. When he surfaces, he's liable to have a condition called the bends, where the body can't adapt to the oxygen levels in the atmosphere. All of this happens to me when I surface from a great book.”
Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman

“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.”

A.S. Byatt, Possession

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.”
Ray Bradbury
