Circe | Madeline Miller

Then I learned that I could bend the world to my will, as a bow is bent for an arrow.

Circe | Madeline Miller

If anyone came, I would only be able to scream, and a thousand nymphs before me knew what good that did.

When will people learn that just because you can make something doesn‘t mean you should?

The more distressing the memory, the more persistence its presence.

Exodus | Leon Uris

The world just has a habit of moving on.

quote
WritethebookAnniemae

The main difficulty with sitting at a table by yourself is that there‘s nothing to distract you from hearing other people‘s conversations. I‘m not eavesdropping; I just can‘t help hearing it.

“What is your name? I‘d like to be able to call you something when I bring your bucket back.”
He did not answer.
“Well?”
“Dov!”
“Karen is mine. Perhaps you can call me that and we can say hello. At least till you learn to smile.”

The Hours: A Novel | Michael Cunningham

...but she leaves behind her an unmistakable sense of watchful remonstrance, as if an angel had briefly touched the surface of the world with one sandaled foot, asked if there was any trouble and, being told all was well, had resumed her place in the ether with skeptical gravity, having reminded the children of earth that they are just barely trusted to manage their own business, and that further carelessness will not go unremarked.

There is a ring of organized thieves on the island. They are so damned clever we don‘t even know what they are stealing.

There is nothing we can do to frighten these people. They are graduates of concentration camps.

Desperation | Stephen King

He recalled the story of Daniel and the lions again... “My God hath sent his anger, and hath shut the lions‘ mouths,” Daniel told him, “forasmuch as innocency was found in me.” That wasn‘t exactly right, but David knew the word “innocency” was. 🤣🤣

Baawrabookster Well I use Kindle heavily because of all the free books I find on Kindle but I also read paperbacks and hardcovers whenever the pocket allows. Also I tried audible once fell asleep so have never tried again😅 1y
WritethebookAnniemae The only way I really enjoy an audiobook is if I am reading along with a physical copy! I confess I have used an audiobook at bedtime and never passed the first chapter because I always fell asleep eventually and had no recollection of what part I clocked out on, thereby having to restart the first chapter every night. @Baawrabookster (edited) 1y

It was not stupidity nor lack of talent, but complete inability to find his niche in life.

Mark often wondered what made her so desirable. Maybe it was because she seemed so unreachable to him.

Hopping in the 🛁 with this 📔

laurenlovesliterature One of my son's friends recommended this book highly. I have it on my TBR shelf. Hope you enjoy! 1y
WritethebookAnniemae It‘s good so far, and it‘s definitely a page turner. I‘ve been reading it on and off, and whenever I pick it back up I always know exactly what‘s going on without having to rewind a few pages to remind myself. 1y
