There are many things that Annah would like to forget: the look on her sister's face before Annah left her behind in the Forest of Hands and Teeth, her first glimpse of the Horde as they swarmed the Dark City, the sear of the barbed wire that would scar her for life. But most of all, Annah would like to forget the morning Elias left her for the Recruiters.
Annah's world stopped that day, and she's been waiting for Elias to come home ever since. Somehow, without him, her life doesn't feel much different than the dead that roam the wasted city around her. Until she meets Catcher, and everything feels alive again.
But Catcher has his own secrets. Dark, terrifying truths that link him to a past Annah has longed to forget, and to a future too deadly to consider. And now it's up to Annah: can she continue to live in a world covered in the blood of the living? Or is death the only escape from the Return's destruction?

Happy Music Monday! This is a weekly feature hosted here at Gone with the Words where I post a video of a song that reminds me of something or someone I’ve read, anything that relates to it in my mind. I’d love to know what songs remind you of certain books or character. Create a post and leave the link or just tell me about them in the comments!!

When I heard this song, I instantly thought of Annah from The Dark and Hollow Places. This song, November by Azure Ray, is just so amazingly poignant. I fell in love with it from first listen.

Annah is on the verge of giving up when we first meet her. She is done. But something happens that makes her turn around and keep going and all of the words below could be coming from her.

So I’m waiting for this test to end
So these lighter days can soon begin
I’ll be alone but maybe more carefree
Like a kite that floats so effortlessly
I was afraid to be alone
Now I’m scared thats how I’d like to be
All these faces none the same
How can there be so many personalities
So many lifeless empty hands
So many hearts in great demand
And now my sorrow seems so far away
Until I’m taken by these bolts of pain
But I turn them off and tuck them away
’till these rainy days that make them stay
And then I’ll cry so hard to these sad songs
And the words still ring, once here now gone
And they echo through my head everyday
And I dont think they’ll ever go away
Just like thinking of your childhood home
But we cant go back we’re on our own
Oh,
But i’m about to give this one more shot
And find it in myself
I’ll find it in myself
So were speeding towards that time of year
To the day that marks that you’re not here
And i think I’ll want to be alone
So please understand if I dont answer the phone
I’ll just sit and stare at my deep blue walls
Until I can see nothing at all
Only particles some fast some slow
All my eyes can see is all I know
Ohh..
But I’m about to give this one more shot
And find it in myself
I’ll find it in myself

    I haven't read this one yet. But that song really does capture the mood of what I have read. So sad and soulful. If you get a chance, stop by and check out my MMhttp://wp.me/p1h3Ps-6v
