💭 “You obeyed, once, because you thought it would make you safe. He showed you—again and again, unrelentingly, he would not let you pretend otherwise—that if obedience did not make one safe from the Guardians or the nodes or the lynchings or the breeding or the disrespect, then what was the point? The game was too rigged to bother playing.”

⠀ 📚 Today was a mid-book buddy read meeting for The Obelisk Gate by N. K. Jemisin, and we had so many participants that Instagram chat couldn’t accommodate. We ended up switching to the Zoom platform to talk! This was one of the best discussions ever!

This is my second reading of this novel and it is just as powerful as the first time around.

This Fifth Season trilogy is the greatest fantasy of all time!

What was your last great buddy read?
