I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban - Christina Lamb,Malala Yousafzai

Powerful. That's how I would describe this book. 

 

The story gave us an insight of life in Swat Valley before it was taken over by the Taliban, and how extremist views can gain massive followers in such short time and affected people's lives with fear. 

 

Malala is a hero - a symbol of bravery and courage of young females of modern times, and also a living proof of how parents support can bring children to the highest places.

The Taliban are a bunch of insecure cowards. They hide behind the Quran to impose ridiculous restrictions on women. They fear educated women. They fear loss of male power. My God doesn't hate or ridicule smart women. My God loves all. Guess I will die an infidel.

I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban - Christina Lamb,Malala Yousafzai

I find it rather ironic that I'm reading a book about extremists taking over a once-beautiful world. This election is making me sick. I don't talk politics very much, but honestly, Trump scares the crap outta me. I voted Johnson. God, please don't let us end up in World WAR 3.

This weeks Top Ten Tuesday, a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is Top Ten ALL TIME Favorite Books Of X Genre (I know, I know. Picking all time faves. I'm MEAN. But I like knowing people's definitive faves). Can also break it down into sub-genre if that helps?

My favorite genre is Science Fiction, but one could hardly ask me to pick favorites there. I decided instead to do my favorite of the memoirs that I've read. My full list of memoirs are here, with some biography and anthologies of women sprinkled in.
