Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin by Sybrina Fulton, Tracy Martin

Rest in Power, told through the compelling alternating narratives of Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin is the story of the beautiful and complex child they lost, the cruel unresponsiveness of the police and the hostility of the legal system, and the inspiring journey they took from grief and pain to power, and from tragedy and senselessness to meaning.

 

Currently Reading

lost-daughter-of-india

The Lost Daughter of India by Sharon Maas– I started reading this book on Monday. It is beautifully written although the story is quite sad with some really heavy themes. I like the setting though. I will post my review maybe by the end of the week.

 

Reading Next

thesis

I have to take a short break(a few days or a week) from reading and blogging to focus on my thesis. I am currently working on Chapter 2, Literature Review which is really engaging with lots of research and reading so I will not pick any other book until I complete this chapter. Until then, Happy Reading!

      It is a heartbreaking but powerful story.

      Yeah, the thesis is a bit demanding but I have made some progress now. Thank you πŸ™‚

    Rest in Power sounds heartbreaking!
    Good luck with your thesis! ❀ I love that it involves literature πŸ™‚ if anything goes as planned, I might have to write one on books and publishing *fingers crossed* but I'm not looking forward to the amount of work it requires!!!

      Books and Publishing sounds interesting. All the best and I hope that things will go your way so that you can do the research and don’t worry about the work, we will get through it although…it really is a lot lol. My thesis is on Media representation and Ethnicity so I have to review literature that covers the two areas and find theories to show how media shapes audience perceptions about ethnic groups.

      Thank you and all the best in your studies too ❀

  4. Rest In Powers sounds really good. I’m going to see if my library has it. Good luck with your thesis Diana!πŸ’πŸ»

    The Lost Daughter of India sounds like something I definitely see you reading. I was about to request it… but that week I had more willpower πŸ˜› Not like this week 😦

    • Diana
      January 26, 2017

      haha I just saw the title and the cover and immediately requested it. I see we’ve changed places this week because I haven’t gotten any new books so far. I hope to practice ‘the ban’ until I get through half of the ARCs but its too soon to celebrate so will see how it goes πŸ™‚

    Great books, Rest in power sounds heartbreaking. (I finished Stay With Me, which was also heart breaking!!) Good luck with your thesis! I’m sure you’ll smash it!

    • Diana
      January 26, 2017

      Yeah Stay with Me was really heartbreaking.The struggle of getting kids especially with so much societal pressure is unimaginable.Does the same happen in Australia?

      Thanks for the wonderful wish πŸ™‚

      • Sue - doddyaboutbooks

        I think the cultural pressure for kids is a bit different here, and the focus of that pressure is usually the woman, with the pressure coming from her parents. I think it is more accepted here that people want to wait until they are older for kids although society definitely judges women who don’t want children. Polygamy is illegal here (but people still cheat on spouses etc). I have to say that I think more men abandon their kids here than would go to those sorts of lengths to have them in the first place.

    Good luck with your thesis, Diana! Have any of the books you’ve reviewed on this blog been for your thesis research? I would be interested to explore anything you’d recommend which relates. I can’t imagine writing a thesis- it sounds incredible, though.

    • Diana
      January 26, 2017

      Thanks a lot πŸ™‚ I haven’t cited any of the books here though I have spotted some of the issues that my reasearch aims to address.Like in The Whistler,there was a black guy whose character was based on ethnic stereotypes.From his kids,the pentecostal church and other stuff.My research has made me more aware of ethnic representation I books.

        January 27, 2017

        That’s really fascinating. I don’t know if I’m aware enough to notice those sorts of things. I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that, but honesty is the best policy.

    Those two titles are definitely interesting… And good luck with your thesis! ❀
