The quote of today comes from…
The Winner’s Curse, by Marie Rutkoski
Amazon | Goodreads | Book Depository
I am currently writing the review for this book, so be on the watch for that. I had mixed feelings about this one, and it’d take a while to explain everything. Just enjoy the quote now and read my review later.
While I thought this book contained an over-abundance of metaphors and similes, this was one that I actually liked.
Her tone was polite, but the “please” grated. It was a lie, a pretense that her words were not an order. It was a slick coat of paint on a prison.
Ah. Humans and our small deceptions.
Have you read this book? What do you think of this quote-and her metaphors in general? Oh, and the cover change. I think it’s been publicized enough, but here’s my opinion on it: the new covers are ugly. They’re just unattractive to me-the model, the outfits, the backgrounds. I love the aesthetics of the originals. But, I want to know what you you think.

OMG I miss Kestrel and Arin so much! It’s by far the best book series I’ve read this year! 😀
I have yet to start this series, but I own all of them. I’ve heard nothing but good things, so I’m excited!
I haven’t read the book, but I do like your quote! I like the idea of the “please” grating, and the coat of paint on the prison. Looking forward to your review!
