The book I'm reading this week is A Mad Zombie Party by Gena Showalter. It's the final in a four-book series about a group of bad-ass teenagers who hunt and destroy zombies, with some HAWT and steamy romance thrown in. Just as amazing as the other three books in the series, I'm so sad it's over! *sob sob*
First, a quote I really like about scars, which is something I've always felt self-conscious about:
"Scars speak for you. They say you're strong, and you've survived something that might have killed others."
I love this because it makes me feel good and confident about scars when before all I wanted was for them to disappear.
And a great quote about peace:
"And the peace! The most magnificent peace. I lose myself in a place where time no longer exists and nothing is impossible. I can do anything I imagine. I can fight and win any war. Nothing frightens me, because I know I'm here for a reason; and I'm not alone. I have friends in high places. Friends here. Friends up there. Victory is mine."
I love this because I think if anyone repeats this to themselves when they're feeling low, you can achieve and do anything you want.
