Prize you’ve won: none (yet!), but I was a Reader of the Hour, which was pretty sweet

Before I start reading my foreign language book for Sarah's challenge, I wanted to share a quote from Pretties that I absolutely adored (WARNING: may be spoilery if you haven't read the series):
"Why am I unhappy?" Tally repeated softly. "Because the city makes you the way they want to you be, Peris. And I want to be myself. That's why."
He squeezed her shoulder and gave her a sad look. "But people are better now than they used to be. Maybe they have good reasons for changing us, Tally."
"Their reasons don't mean anything unless I have a choice, Peris. And they don't give anyone a choice."
Hooray for sticking it to the man!
