Thank you @ljuliel for promoting an #EmotionalRead, I read this book at University; I was heartbroken at the evil and cruelty man can commit. There were many times I had to put the book down to absorb and think about what I had read. I think it is important to read these hard content books, so that we never forget what has happened and to learn lessons for the future. #KeepLitsyActive

Crazeedi I havent read this, but I think I need to. Thanks for sharing. #neverforget 1mo
ljuliel Thank you for posting. I haven‘t read this either but I can imagine it must have been a really difficult read. 1mo
jb72 Those books are always so difficult to read. Have you read ? 1mo
veritysalter @jb72 no, but it‘s on my TBR. @Crazeedi Make sure you‘re in a strong place mentally before you start - it‘s a comprehensive account of the atrocities committed. @ljuliel Thank you for giving us such a good prompt. 1mo
Crazeedi @veritysalter I have read other books that have made me cry from this time, but thank you for the reminder, it will have to be when I'm in a good place I know. Going to the holocaust memorial in DC was the same experience 1mo

“Stories are wild creatures, the monster said. When you let them loose, who knows what havoc they might wreak?”

“Don't think you haven't lived long enough to have a story to tell.”

There are so many amazing quotes in this book, these are just a few.

This is not easy to read. I'm barely 50 pages in, and my heart is already being wrenched to pieces. A fictional story that examines the very real problem of human-animal conflict. I can already tell that the author is purposely painting a picture in which the lines of right vs wrong and good guy vs bad guy are blurred. #currentlyreading #emotionalread #elephant #india 🐘

Maybe it's because I didn't get enough sleep last night (travel complications and delays, ugh) but this end of series was a super #emotionalread. The first two may have been better all around stories, but I loved the drama and originality of these books and where Hamilton took them. Heartily recommend the whole series 💕 #readingresolutions

So it has taken me a couple of days to come to terms with the beauty and elegance of this book. It deals with a subject matter that is typically difficult to talk about (suicide) in a respectful, creative, and inspiring way. It illustrated the power of family. And showed the beauty of resilience. It will stay with me for a very, very long time. #inspiring #emotionalread ❤️🖤😱😢😰😊

Leelee.reads This has been in my TBR for ages... Thanks for the reminder about it! Going to try to read it this summer. 1y
ruskigurl16 @Leelee.reads you are so welcome. Picked it up based on the cover and spine art. And the blurb in the jacket. Best decision. 😊😍 1y

🌟Don't be a person who seeks out grief. There is enough of that in life.🌟
Last night was rough for everyone involved in our local fire department. There was a call that a kid on a bike was struck by a truck. It was pretty awful and it makes all of us a little run down.
