Quote it Sunday | The Poppy War by R F Kuang

“Quote it Saturday” was a weekly blog meme hosted by Freda’s Voice, but it’s currently inactive. It’s a weekly meme where you can add as many quotes as you wish, from any source you want.

Hey guys,

I finished The Poppy War by R.F.Kuang in February but it has been on my mind even after weeks. This book is one of the rawest YA war fantasy I’ve read, and it has made me question some of the characters in the book. I totally get now why readers were telling it’ll wreck me. It left me speechless and numb to process what happened.

The only permanent thing about the Nikara Empire was war.

To the Nikara, gods were only relics of the past: subjects of myths and legends, no more.

If anyone can survive here, it’s you. Don’t forget what you did to get here.

Chaos does not discriminate

The price of power is pain

Treating the gods as weapons only ever spells death

Fear was impossible to eradicate. But so was the will to survive

Shamans should know when to resist the power of the gods. That is wisdom. But rulers should do everything in their power to save their country.

What happened when one race decided that the other was insignificant

We draw our strength from centuries and centuries of unforgotten injustices.

If you have read this book/series, what are your thoughts?
