Memorable Mondays is a meme that focuses on spotlighting our favorite quotes from books we’ve read.
This week’s Memorable Monday comes from Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein.
I’ve already admitted that I’m a little hung up on this book, so much so that I even styled an outfit based on it!
While I want to shake my fist at the sky and say “Damn you Elizabeth Wein,” I think this is one of the best books I have read in a while, so it’s no surprise that I pulled at least one quote from it.
I’ve been thinking a lot about friendship lately, especially after reading Code Name Verity, and that’s why this quote stood out to me.
This quote is one of my favorite quotes from this book. I found it very poignant quote. I don’t think this sentiment will never get old.
Here’s a synopsis of Code Name Verity:
I have two weeks. You’ll shoot me at the end no matter what I do.
That’s what you do to enemy agents. It’s what we do to enemy agents. But I look at all the dark and twisted roads ahead and cooperation is the easy way out. Possibly the only way out for a girl caught red-handed doing dirty work like mine – and I will do anything, anything to avoid SS-Hauptsturmführer von Linden interrogating me again.
He has said that I can have as much paper as I need. All I have to do is cough up everything I can remember about the British War Effort. And I’m going to. But the story of how I came to be here starts with my friend Maddie. She is the pilot who flew me into France – an Allied Invasion of Two.
We are a sensational team.
