“Libraries were full of ideas – perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.”

So I had seen this quote floating around the internet and I’m happy to see that it fell on one of my quote post days. It is true that books can help foster ideas which are powerful if you know how to use them. I will say that books have been a bit of my saving grace these past few months. I think my husband might have noticed a change too in how I’ve been acting. I received a diagnosis of depression back in middle school, along with ADD. Those paired along with the anxiety I have developed in college are a nasty combo. Books have been a great way for me to clear my head and to push the negative thoughts out the door. At least books are cheaper than therapy.

Do you relate to this passage in a way? Let me know in the comments!

Can anyone guess what book my post is going to be on today? No? Maybe? If you guessed Roar by Cora Carmack, you’re correct – sorry, not sorry. 😉 Even if I wasn’t a part of the Roar Street Team, I’d be super hyped on this book/series since I LOVE the concept.

“But all my life, I’ve felt like something was left out when I was made, like a recipe with a missing ingredient. And it didn’t matter how hard I tried to be better because something in me was inherently…wrong. As if I’d been put into the wrong life by mistake.”

I really connect to Aurora/Rora/Roar in this moment of truth because even though I’ve gone through college, gotten married, etc and did everything I was “supposed” to do in life that others expect of me, there’s still something I feel like I’m missing or that I just not doing what I’m supposed to be doing yet. Hopefully I figure that out one of these days.

Do you relate to this passage in a way?
With all these teasers, are you excited for Roar’s release?

So I totally had to scramble and find a book in my office  (since all my books are upstairs).

Get it here

So I had to improvise and go with page 55, since page 56 is a giant Rebel logo that leads into Rey’s backstory. This is from Finn’s backstory:

“Perhaps when someone was shooting back at him, he would understand what it meant to be a real stormtrooper, what it meant to serve the First Order, body and soul.”

I do have to say, this is a great book for Star Wars lovers who want to know more about our main characters from Episode 7. I look at the movies completely differently since reading it.
