#grimdragon Day 19: poetry/graphic novels/non-fiction.
I love reading non-fiction. I managed to read a little bit more non-fiction in 2017 and hopefully I'll be able to do it this year again. I mention these books every time I talk about non-fiction, because they are a few of my favourites. But I never really see them on bookstagram so here is what they are about. (Very short and I definitely can't do them justice) ▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫
Another Day in the Death of America by Gary Younge. The author picked a random day in the US and looks at all the children that have been shot in these 24 hours. It is a great book about gun violence and the Lack of gun control in the US and sadly it's pretty relevant again right now. ▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪The View from the Cheap Seats by Neil Gaiman is a collection of his non-fiction. I don't love every book by him, but I love to read about his views on literature, art and so much more! ▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫ Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson. The author is a lawyer and writes about his cases. He tries to help people on death row and writes a great deal about the justice system of the US. Bryan Stevenson is an inspiring person and the unjustice that is described in this book made me so angry! ▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪ The Morning They Came for Us: Dispatches from Syria by Janine Di Giovanni. The author is a war correspondent and talks about her time in Syria. She explains how the conflict started and what it's like for the syrian people. This is one of the most horrible books I have ever read, but it is also one of the most important ones! I can recommend it even if you don't know a lot about Syria. ▫

Okay.. I just wanted to write one sentence about every book but I got carried away. 😂 All of these books had a great impact on me and I can't recommend them enough.

I have a few of Janine’s other books (she’s a foreign correspondent/war reporter and has published books about her travels), but this is the one I’ve most been looking forward to reading. Hoping to get to it soon.

Currently reading ‘The Morning They Came for Us: Dispatches from Syria’ by Janine Di Giovanni. Only reading a little bit every day because this is definitely a hard and emotional read. Di Giovanni tells us the personal stories of the people she meets in Syria while the war is escalating. She gives us information on the war, how it started, how it all began as a peaceful uprising and became what it is today. This is a book that has given me a lot of knowledge so far, and I assume it will continue to educate me until the last page. Will probably review this one as I have a lot of thoughts! #janinedigiovanni #themorningtheycameforus #nonfiction #readersofinstagram #readmore

My 13 favourite books of the year (I just couldn't narrow it down to 10, don't @ me. Tbh I had such a good reading year I had trouble even getting it down to 13! Clearly know myself better) 📚 In no particular order, except that PACHINKO is #1. Obviously. 👏❤️😍 (Note: Pages for Her is standing in for the first book Pages for You because I don't have a physical copy of it but I loved Pages for Her very much too)

So finally found the time to finish 'do no harm' (a m a z i n g) and now I'm super excited to get started on the book that my lovely boyfriend bought me this week📚 #Syria #refugees #bookstagram #themorningtheycameforus

#12daysofbookstagram Day 10 Books I want to read - My list of TBR is endless, but I do want to read more nonfiction this coming year. I’m really interested in these three. The Future is History won the National Book Award for non-fiction and deals with Russia a country whose history fascinates me. I included one of my all time favorite quotes in the picture “Wisdom begins in wonder”. I think readers are naturally curious individuals and reading definitely increases wisdom. I believe this quote is attributed to Socrates, I would also like to include some philosophy in 2018. Has anyone read these books? #nonfiction #booksbringwisdom #thefutureishistory #mashagessen #themorningtheycameforus #dispatchesfromsyria #janinedigiovanni #killersoftheflowermoon #davidgrann #wisdombeginsinwonder #readmorenonfiction #readmorebooks #ilovebooks #whatshouldireadnext #modernmrsdarcy #osage #syria #russia #historybuff #historygeek #osagemurders #totalitariansm

I wanted to read more non-fiction in 2017 and I actually managed to do that. I still didn't read that many non-fiction books, but definitely more than last year. These are a few of my favourites. All of them deal with very important topics.

In "Another Day in the Death of America" Gary Younge picked a random day in the US and looks at all the children and teenagers that have died to gun violence that day. It's really frustrating to read about this and I highly recommend it if you are interested in the topic. ▪

"The Morning They Came for Us" by Janine Di Giovanni was horrible to read. The author is a war correspondent and talks about her time in Syria and what it's like for the syrian people. I didn't want to keep reading it, but it is such an important book and very accessible. ▪

Bryan Stevenson is a lawyer and his book "Just Mercy" is mainly about people on death row and how he tries to help them. It also deals with incarcerated children and other people who need help. I loved this book. Again it is frustrating to read about people getting treated badly, but Bryan Stevenson is truly inspiring!

I am about halfway through this book that tells real accounts of terror and the reality of the civil war in Syria. I was asked if I enjoy reading these sorts of things. The answer is no. I don’t. But in order to learn, one must be willing to read even if it makes you uncomfortable. I have so many things to be thankful for this coming holiday. One of those things is I am thankful to live in America the land of the free. 🌑

I was blessed to meet the incredibly brave and amazing Janine Di Giovanni last year at Adelaide writers week after following her for years and reading all her books. Her latest book Dispatches from Syria The Morning They Came For Us is a heartbreaking deeply personal account of the war in Syria and her time there#janinedigiovanni #themorningtheycameforus #nonfiction#ilovebooks

Homs, Syria, 2013. Reporting and analyzing the Syrian war has been the most challenging discipline of my long career in #war zones. The complexity, the lack of interest from the international community, the unprecedented wave of millions of refugees, the UN’s fxxx ups again and again, President Obama’s decision to do nothing, and the tremendous weight of human suffering... it will be seven years this spring this bloody war goes on. Seven years! We thought the siege of #sarajevo was catastrophic and that lasted under four. I’m never giving up on Syria, but I’m exhausted, and I’m only a measly reporter and analyst. How would it feel to be them? #standwithrefugees #Syria #lebanon #Homs

The Morning They Came for us gives us faces to the war in Syria. Stories that are difficult to read but real stories about the devastation and life in a war torn country, where the unimaginable is happening. #janinedigiovanni is a courageous reporter and her novel will open your eyes to the lives of those in the Middle East, trying to live their lives. It also deepened my appreciation for my life which is one of peace and freedom... #ilovetoread #bibliophile #themorningtheycameforus #nonfiction #syria

“The lowest depth that a human being can reach is to perform or to receive torture. The goal of the torturer is to inflict horrific pain and dehumanize another being. The act not only destroys both parties' souls — the victim's and the perpetrator's — but also the very fabric of a society. By subjecting men or women to enforced violence, sexual violation, or worse, you transform them into something subhuman. How does someone return to the human race after having been so brutalized?” The Morning They Came for Us is one the hardest things I´ve ever read. It doesn´t shy away from brutality - rape, torture, death, unimaginable grief and pain. All of which are part of the war blazing in The Middle East, the subject of this book. It feels horrible to think how ignorant I was of it, how easy it is to close one´s eyes. I´m so glad I read Janine di Giovanni´s book despite my hesitation. She writes extremely well, the stories and the pain of the people of Syria come across strongly and real through the text. The biggest criticism I have regards the structure. For someone with very poor base knowledge of the crisis in Syria it is somewhat confusing. The chapters jump in time, in settings and in themes and they don´t offer enough in the way of general knowledge of what was happening. I wish di Giovanni had planned it better for people quite unfamiliar with the subject, but this is still an incredible, important book.

Book picks for the next three weeks! 🎃🍂
