This is a powerful movie and Book I really enjoyed both the movie and book also the audiobook too, if you haven‘t seen the movie go watch it and if you haven‘t read the book then read the book ✊🏽 #BlackPower #TheHateUGive

Day 19 of #lilithjuly! This was the first book that came to mind when I saw #talkinboutarevolution, and so I went with it!

"I can't believe I let Hailey say that. Or has she always joked like that? Did I always laugh because I thought I had to? That's the problem. We let people say stuff, and they say it so much that it becomes okay to them and normal for us. What's the point of having a voice if you're gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn't be?"

"Ain't this some shit? Not even five minutes ago, I was stuck-up because I go to Williamson. Now I'm lucky? Trust me, my school has hoes too. Hoedom is universal."

I'm dying. Page 7 and I can already see that I'm going to adore this novel!

IvoryLunatic I loved this book! I have some recommendations if you'd like along these lines too.

Once I started I had to finish. Incredible, riveting, emotional, moving, important book. Her characters are so real and true and complex. Such a well done book, a must-read.

I enjoyed it; I loved how they always gave a proper explanation of the sneakers being worn. This was a very sad book; how Starr always seemed to loose close friends was very sad. It's sad that the book was actually based on a true story about police brutality, I enjoyed it

Remember: Reading should be fun & Not a chore!

Somehow I read On the Come Up before this and had really liked it. So I decided to check out #TheHateUGive and liked it just as much. It's definitely centered around a tough subject so the story gets very emotional at times, but there's also many times I laughed or smiled too. The main character Starr is fantastic. She's an awesome role model for younger readers. This book should be required reading in all high schools across the United States.

This YA book about race is certainly powerful and brings many important conversation topics to the table. I felt like the main character, Starr, was authentic and appeared to have realistic teenage emotions. That being said, the second half of the book was not as well developed in my opinion and it didn‘t keep me as enraptured or interested as I wanted to be.

I wasn‘t sure what I was going to think about this book before I read it, and I loved it. I have to admit there was some parts that made me sad, but for what it‘s worth, it made the book better.

It‘s a great story. But I wish the later part of the book especially from the street protest till the ending could have the power of conflicts and characters‘ emotional evolvement transformed onto paper in a more powerful way...I like the screenwriting from the movie version better on those parts...

When I first saw the u in the title of this book, I cringed. As a middleschool teacher, I'm constantly asking my students to spell out "you" on papers and in class discussion posts. However, this book was inescapable, and I knew I'd have to read it.

I'm so glad I did. Now I understand the relevance of the title's spelling and have a great appreciation for Angie Thomas' perspective.

I've now read Top 5 of @American Library Association 2018 List of Challenged or Banned Books. Personal Summer Reading Challenge is to read all 11. Also Goodreads Summer Reading Challenge - The Book is Better(although I haven't seen the movie yet). Definitely a window into world I have never experienced. Powerful message that we all just want to be happy and free.📚

howjessreads Suuuuch a good one! 2mo
LiterRohde @howjessreads Which is why I‘ve avoided it for so long. It‘s gotten so much hype and is on a topic off limits to criticism. I think it‘s actually a difficult book to talk about unless everyone in the room agrees. I‘m only 50 pages in and I am already nervous of doing any sort of real review as I can already tell that I don‘t love it as much as 99.5% of Litsy. (edited) 2mo

I recommend this despite it‘s between a “Pick” and a “So-So” for me.

Can‘t really say why. It‘s a strong story and most of the characters are authentic but from “Part 2” on the book lost a bit for me. Especially Big Mav more and more seemed in his roots to be like all the other fathers in all the other YA-novels. 🤷🏽‍♀️

I liked it but I don‘t quite follow the hype-train. Maybe ‘cause I‘m too naive.

👆🏼 What⁉️ She beats someone up in school. One of her friends tries to keep her from doing so. And her elder brother sees that, misunderstands it and beats the guy up who wanted to conciliate.

And in the end, she thinks that it‘s cool that her elder brother keeps an eye on her.

Wonderful model of femininity. Not.
And sure, shoot first, ask questions later.

That‘s sooo outdated and sooo annoying.

Glad I was raised differently in those points.

Sunshiny outside reading here.

Girls and boys, can anybody tell me why in this story, too, there has to be that “traditional” “You-are-a-sixteen-year-old-girl-and-I-am-your-elder-brother-so-it‘s-my-responsibility-to-ensure-your-boyfriend-doesn‘t-assault-you-sexually”-narrative⁉️😠

Yeah, parents, elder brothers and authors, this way you easily raise self-conscious girls and women.

Not.

No, Mrs. Thomas, not cool. Definitely not. 😠

What this book tells is so very far from my own life that I constantly shake my head in disbelief. It‘s not that I didn‘t know or believe that things (in the U. S.) are like that, it‘s that I think that most of this behaviour is so unnecessary …

Angie Thomas definitely knows how to keep her reader‘s attention high. And apart from the subject I appreciate the story for not being predictable. At least not to me.

When you read the first chapter of a new book the night before and then continue the story the day after only to realise that you have forgotten some obviously important parts, points, characters introduced on the first pages.

… Flipping back.

I coincidentally found a glossary.

Yeah.

But you publisher-author-girls-and-boys, why can‘t you print a hint in the beginning of the book⁉️😠

Always the same …

The Hate U Give was an excellent read. I was on an emotional rollercoaster throughout the book. This book is a mirror to what‘s going on in America. Police brutality against black|brown people without justice being served. I‘m glad Starr spoke up and told the truth about not just Khalil, but the events of his death. It also shows that code switching is exhausting for black people. I‘m glad Starr was able to be her authentic self by the book‘s end.

This weekend we are invited to welcome our friends‘ new baby. 👶🏼🍼 So I went to the book store to buy a picture-book for the now „big brother“. (Yeah, I really found a cute one, thanks to the shop assistant. 🙇🏽‍♀️)

But look what accidentally came my way and badly begged to be taken home. 😃
Finally‼️
I wanted to read it since it was published – and now I am so happy to have scavenged a paperback‼️‼️😍😃

It is just as good as everyone says it is. The kind of YA story that could only be YA, and needs adults to shut up and listen.
