If you’re in need of a good book, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas needs to be in your hands. I’m not even half way though and I’m smitten.
This book is in response to all of the shootings of unarmed black people, the protests and the frustration with our judicial system. This challenges your thinking and puts so many things into perspective.
I wish I could get my parents to read this because the message is well articulated and delivered and it needs to be heard.
every author that tricked me into reading a pointless, boring romantic subplot when their book summary promised me a plot that did NOT involve romance and wasted precious pagetime focusing on two bland white people making googly eyes at each other instead of the thing i actually bought the book to read owes me $5
When you get so distracted by your obsession or fandom that you physically cannot function.
There are nights when you just lie in bed thinking about these characters and end up not sleeping because you are too busy coming up with imaginary scenarios.
Or you sit in places like classes and lecture rooms, scrolling through Tumblr and other sites looking for information and pictures on your fandom instead of actually focusing on what you need to focus on.
It becomes even more apparent that you are obsessed when you start doing those things at inappropriate times.
Your grandmother’s birthday.
When your parents are lecturing you on something or other.
Let’s just say that you know there’s a time and place for everything. But to you, the time is always fandom time.
