Hold your baby just a little tighter.

Beloved, by Toni Morrison, was really hard for me to read. Just to imagine the desperation that the main character felt to resort to such a horrific action. And then the let down when she realizes that the baby ghost is out for no good rather than just to be with her...this was just so unbelievably sad. I had to stop reading it at night before bed because I was finding it so upsetting that I couldn't fall asleep. And when Peanut woke up in the morning, I just hugged her so tightly, appreciating who she is and how lucky we are to live our life.

  1. That's a tough one to read. I read it in high school and I saw it was on the list and was afraid it would upset you.
