“I keep thinking about this river somewhere, with the water moving really fast. And these two people in the water, trying to hold onto each other, holding on as hard as they can, but in the end it‘s just too much. The current‘s too strong. They‘ve got to let go, drift apart.”

The_Real_Nani Just read this last month. So good. 2d

“Once, in my father's bookshop, I heard a regular customer say that few things leave a deeper mark on a reader than the first book that finds its way into his heart. Those first images, the echo of words we think we have left behind, accompany us throughout our lives and sculpt a palace in our memory to which, sooner or later—no matter how many books we read, how many worlds we discover, or how much we learn or forget—we will return.” ❤️❤️❤️

emz711 First time you're reading it? Wish I could go back to my first time! 3d
BilboBookends @emz711 it was and I LOVED it! And the best part is after I was suffering hard from a book hangover, I found it was part of a series?!?! 😱👏🏻😍 2d
emz711 4 books, last one came out last year and ice read it twice already. They're incredible. Keep going! 2d

“Sometimes she heard night-sounds she didn't know or jumped from lightning too close, but whenever she stumbled, it was the land who caught her. Until at last, at some unclaimed moment, the heart-pain seeped away like water into sand. Still there, but deep. Kya laid her hand upon the breathing, wet earth, and the marsh became her mother.”

“we often mistake love for fireworks - for drama and dysfunction. But real love is very quiet, very still. It's boring, if seen from the perspective of high drama. Love is deep and calm - and constant.”

BilboBookends What did you think @Sharteau ?? 4mo
SarahHarts_books @BilboBookends I wasn't sure I was going to like it at first. It started off a little slow. But by the time I finished, I was hooked. The end made the book for me! 4mo
BilboBookends @Sharteau agreed! When I first started it it reminded me a little of Shutter Island but ended up nothing like it 😂 that ending though 😱 4mo

I‘ve gotten about halfway through and I have to bail. This second book in The Southern Reach trilogy did not hook me like Annihilation did.

RedbagReadbooks I had the same issues. Which is sad because the first book was amazing 1y
Crystalblu The second one is tough, but I really enjoyed the third! 1y
CindyE09 I also bailed on the second book. First one was good but I didn‘t like the main character of the second book, he annoyed me. I listened to the audio though so maybe it was the narrator. 1y

MinDea I did the same thing. I bailed half way through this book. I just couldn't anymore! 😖 My boyfriend d read the whole series a d liked it but he wasn't convincing enough to get me to pick it back up! 😆 1y
BilboBookends @Aluciddreamer @CindyE09 @MinDea I‘m so glad I‘m not the only one! I wanted so badly to like it because I‘m so curious as to where the series goes! 1y
BilboBookends @Psychobabble I really enjoyed the first one and definitely recommend it! 1y
BilboBookends @Crystalblu that‘s why I‘m so bummed! I really want some answers and would‘ve loved to get through the series 😫 1y
