the hate you give | Angie Thomas

1. Honestly, I am in the middle of "The Hate You Give" and I can't get enough of it.... will likely finish it soon.... then, who knows.

2. There are so many words that are over used or used incorrectly. I'm tired of the way folks water down the words "Love" and "Friend." These have depth of meaning for me that I feel few actually convey when using.

I found out last night that one of my favourite authors since childhood died recently. Her books were a refuge in my childhood. Thank goodness she was such a prolific author, because she gave me many worlds in which to live, as well as stories that will forever live in me. You are missed, but always remembered, Beverly Cleary.

I have a new reading companion.... Well, tbh, she doesn't really let me read just yet. She's trying to get used to the surroundings and is quite clingy. (I really don't mind that at all 🤣.) She's a great cuddler.

Trying to name her - Mugwort or Sekhmet?

xicanti She‘s lovely! It‘s a tough name choice, but I think I like Mugwort because it‘s cute and unexpected. 2y

Neil Gaiman is *always* brilliant!

I finished all the books I was reading at the end of February, so decided to read this book, as it was #1 on my #bookspinbingo list, and build my bingo with this book as the starting point.

This will be my first bingo, and I'm excited to participate. I've chosen to do the line - 5, 1, 3, 14, & 20... Am I doing this right, @TheAromaofBooks ?

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! There's basically no wrong way to do this 😂 Technically to get your entries for the end of the year giveaway, you'll need to read the two official BookSpin/DoubleSpin numbers (14 & 9) but you can work the challenge however helps you read the most!! 2y
SpiderGoddess @TheAromaofBooks Excellent. Then I'll add #9 to the list - Black Gods and Goddesses of the Bible. Yay! This should help me stay on track to read what I own, not but new books unnecessarily. (I might have an addiction. 🤣) 2y
TheAromaofBooks I literally got a box from Book Outlet today... I think someone is sneaking & ordering these when I'm not looking because I definitely don't need MORE books!! 😂 2y

I loved this book and the theories proposed by the author. This book presents an alternative idea that disputes the Essentialist view of emotions and how they are processed and presented. I enjoy the viewpoint and definitely recommend this book.

Profiles in Courage | John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Hot off the heels of a "president" that had no idea how government actually works and didn't actually care, this book is an impressive look at integrity within the system of government. Kennedy writes biographical essays about politicians who held true to their beliefs in the face of adversity. They did what they felt right, even when bullied by other politicians to conform.
