Hello all, and welcome to another Goodreads Monday! I have so many books on my TBR and this is the time and place to talk about them all!
Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme that is hosted by Lauren @ Lauren’s Page Turners and I cannot wait to bring you a book that is waiting to be read on my TBR list.
Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme where you pick a book that is on your TBR list and show it off. This week I am showing off The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas.
Published: 6th April 2017
“Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.
Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.”
I have been so excited for this book to be finally released in the UK for such a long time now. It is finally really close to release day. Angie Thomas is doing a book tour in the UK just after her release date over here and I am planning on going there. This book is getting nothing but good reviews at the minutes. It has spent weeks at number 1. So it must be a good book! I can’t wait to get stuck into this book!
There you have it, this weeks Goodreads Monday. If you have read or plan on reading The Hate U Give let me know in the comments, I would love to hear your thoughts on the book below!
