"My arguments were that talking is a feminine characteristic and that I would do my best to keep it under control, but I should never be cured, for my mother talked as much as I, probably more, and what can one do about inherited qualities?"
I read this between Aug 10 & 25th. I gave it 4 ⭐️ on Good Reads. This was a re-read for me. I had first read it some 30 years ago. I think it‘s an important document to read, especially for teens. I wish that I had found the “definitive” edition but regardless the diary is an important historical document.
It‘s hard to put into words what this book made me feel. Through diary entries, it feels as if you‘ve become friends with Anne by the end. Knowing what happened to her shortly after the book ends is just heartbreaking. It‘s especially distressing to know that we haven‘t adequately learned or passed along the lessons to our children/grandchildren to love each other for our differences, rather than be fearful of them. ✌️💡❤️ Rest In Peace Anne Frank
I‘ve been wanting to read this for a really, really long time. It‘s such a heartbreaking diary to read.
I just love Anne Frank so much she is so inspirational to me and is a rly great role model for dealing with tough times. Who is ur role model rn
OK I‘M AWARE THAT I TALK A LOT ABOUT BOOKS BUT PLEASE BEAR WITH MY LARGE JEWISH EMOTIONS FOR THIS POST THANK YOU. So we all know this is Anne Frank‘s B. I‘m going to consider this an award winner for several reasons, though the diary itself did not literally receive an award, I feel that it wouldn‘t make sense – works based on it won many, though, and out of it came The Anne Frank Award, among others. Comments to follow. #LAE3414sp19
I ordered this beautiful book to add to my shelf- and decided to reread it. Wow! It is still as powerful as I remember it being the first time I read this as a teen. I feel that I read an abridged version the first time- there are entries that I feel I‘m reading for the first time. Anybody feel the same about this (or another) book you read as both a child and later as an adult?
“It‘s difficult in times like these: ideals, dreams and cherished hopes rise within us, only to be crushed by grim reality. It‘s a wonder I haven‘t abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.”—Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl🕯
Our hearts are with Pittsburgh today. ❤️
Such a moving tale about a young girl, wise beyond her years, going into hiding with her family to escape the Nazis. The book ends so abruptly and it really does make you think and appreciate your life for what it is; because as this book shows, things could be a lot worse.

Like Pip I am traveling this summer so participating through pictures. I am in Amsterdam and went to Anne Frank house today. Rewarding experience. Very hot here, was not expecting that.
I tried reading it once before, I just couldn't read it. But I am really glad I gave it another try. The ending made me really sad... To know that so many innocent lives have been lost... The book shows the real life of a real teenager who was forced to endure so much difficulties in so short a life...
This book is incredible, eye-opening, honest, funny, and sad. I have always wanted to read this one and now that I can check it off as read I‘d like to take some time to really think about the subject matter. I will just say that I‘m amazed by the wisdom of such a young girl and it‘s incredible that her story is still being read today.
I'm so glad I finally read it. This book was so good. It was very interesting reading what they went through. I cried so much at the end. It's so awful anyone had go through that. I'm so thankful to be born in this time. #litsy #booklover #kindle #kindlefire #paperwhite
