What Diversity Means to Me

Hello everyone, it's time to be controversial !

I hesitated a lot before doing this post but I need to have this discussion because I don't like how the community is changing. I realize I might be hated for what I'm going to say so I'm going to ask you to keep an open mind.

This discussion is obviously going to be about diversity. I support diversity all the way. To me, diversity is realizing that there are different types of people in the world. It may be a very simplistic definition but that's how I see it. When you read diversely, you open up to different cultures, different point of views, different people with issues you're probably never going to have and that's what makes it beautiful. Our differences. It'd be so boring if we were all the same after all. 
This world is full of many types of people and it'd be a shame not to read about all of them (or at least try).

Pay close attention and you might solve this.

On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.

Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule.

Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess.

Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.

Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.

And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app.

Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon's dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?

Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them

My Fictional Family

Hello everyone !

A couple of days ago, I was thinking about how I loved when the family aspect is developped in a book and I thought it would be cool to imagine what my fictional family would be like.
This is what I came up with :

Review | Thirteen Reasons Why Season 1

For those who have never heard about it the story follows Clay Jensen, a high schooler whose crush, Hannah Baker committed suicide. One day, he receives a box full of tapes recorded by Hannah explaining why she did this. Each tape is about one reason - one person - and since Clay has received it, it means he's one of the reason.
I first read this book when I was in high school. It was actually the first book that kept me reading all night. I just couldn't put it down. I needed to know the reasons, I needed to understand why the life of a regular girl turned so wrong so fast. 

Before I say anything else, you need to know this book isn't about justifying suicide. It's about preventing it. I think the message behind it is good : Small things matter. And you never know what's going on in another person's life. 

Now we can move on to the actual review.

My April TBR

Hey ! I know, I haven't posted in months and I'm sorry. It's just life you know ? One day you're motivated to post three times a week, to read and to do everything else on your to-do-list but then, stuff happens and you're more focused on other things. 
It's not a good excuse, I know but that's what happened. This post doesn't mean you're going to get a lot of posts like before but it's a start. I've been wanting to post something for a while but I couldn't bring myself to do it. Today though, I'm motivated enough to write a quick and easy post : My April TBR.
