Hello! I'm gonna remain anonymous for now since I don't wanna reveal who I am. All I'm gonna say is I am Chinese I'm gonna say this Blog is my place for when I feel in the mood to share what I'm going through and what's going on- but not the big details. My diary that I'll keep on filling (hopefully). Because I'm not best with diaries, I just incomplete them. I'm just an ordinary girl living a generation full of technology, judgement and racism. There's so many ideas I wanna share that'll explode like a coke bottle (metaphor from Girl Online-Zoe Sugg) Photography is the thang! Also nature! Hope you'll enjoy this. See you around

Noughts & Crosses Series | Books

Malorie Blackman 
Now I've never heard much about her when one day my Brother brought home one of her books and that was one of the Noughts and Crosses Series and that will be the first book. At that time I hated reading, but once I took a good look at the blurb and that made me realise that "Huh this is interesting, maybe I should read it."Took me a good old couple of pages for me to love Malorie. This was like in Year 8 or 7 I don't remember. Then later on in Yea 9 my old form tutor got me invested into more of her books such as 'Pig Heart Boy', 'Hacker' and 'Boys Don't cry' which I don't think I have finished.
She is a British Author who wrote about segregation when Blacks over-rule the Whites (aka the Crosses over-ruling the Noughts) and goes deep into politics of the ruling government Liberation Militia. If you love books that are on political views, segregation, difficulties in life, then I strongly suggest you invest in one of her books.

Noughts and Crosses Series
Callum is a nought-a second-class citizen in a world run by the ruling crosses...
Sephy is a Cross, daughter of one of the most powerful men in the country...
In their world, noughts and Crosses simply don't match. And as hostility turns to violence, can Callum and Sephy possible find a way to be together?
They are determined to try.
And then the bomb explodes...

Let me say I consumed a lot of sadness from it and it made me realise one thing in life and that is to never trust anybody. If you are someone that hates reading because you can't be bothered to open a page and read words off a page, then just give it a try. Read one page and see how it goes.
A devastatingly moving story that will blow your mind away and hit you in the feels. However it is recommended for older teenagers as it has sexual and violence in it.
And if you're not interested in any of that then try all her other books. They are amazing!

She focuses on the political views of race and that really interests me because I am the one who is concerned the amount of racism we still have worldwide and it is dis-heartening just to see one been brought down by another and the same pattern goes on and on.
