Book Challenge: The Giver

We accept the love we think we deserve. ~ The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Growing up, libraries were one of my favorite places. Libraries are full of possibilities. Libraries are still one of my favorite places, but I don’t often wonder the stacks as I did in my youth unless we’re having a heatwave. Libraries are free spaces that are cool in temperature and cool to explore. During our last heatwave, I stumbled upon one of my adolescent favorites, The Giver.

Technically, I shouldn’t count this one towards my 2019 book challenge. I’ve read it before, but it was a few decades ago. The message is still relevant today. Be your own person, and sameness is the death of a thriving society. I loved this book as an adolescent, and I loved it even more as an adult.
