A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

 

**SPOILERS**

I love this book. I love Francie Nolan because she’s not your typical blond blue eye beauty. She is REAL, growing up in an impoverished family in early 1900’s Williamsburg Brooklyn, she  learns at a very young age the hardships of life. Nonetheless, that is no reason for her to not find happiness in the unlikeliest places. Deep down she always knew Neeley her younger brother, was Katie’s favorite. But unlike her mother, dad Johnny Nolan  always had time for her and would stay up at night sometimes talking to her. I cried so much when her dad died, never again would she hear him coming up the Steps singing “Molly Malone”. Francie is an inspirational character and that tree had a particular meaning for her, one which I won’t give away here.  It’s a wonderful book and it comes HIGHLY recommended. Also Brooklyn is my Home!!! 🙂

Reading Is “Boring”

I die a little inside everytime I hear someone say that reading is Only for Nerds or is the most boring thing on earth. Last person who told me this I said “You must be the most boring and unimaginative person alive!”.  Seriously, WTF is wrong with people! How can Anyone NOT love something as liberating and wonderful as reading a book.  And we ask ourselves why the world is the way it is?!  I swear I think Technology has rendered people more Stupid with the Passage of time instead of the opposite.  #allreadersunite

Books

I LOVE BOOKS!!! The Outsiders is one of my favorite classics and I look forward to reading it again.  The movie is equally amazing.  A new book in my #toreadlist is Women Who Run With the Wolves. I found this book thanks to the wonderful movement of book sharing started by Actress Emma Watson.  I’ve been a book fairy for a while now.  🙂
