Beloved
Beloved by Toni Morrison

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was a hard book to read.

It was also heartbreaking.

For anyone who needs them, this book’s triggers are: lynching, rape, & slavery. Also slurs. Particularly for use of the n word.

It’s one thing to objectively know that black people are treated like shit and have been for way too many years. It’s another for an author to be able to write it in a way that pulls you in and makes you feel like you’re there. And that’s a huge part of why this book was so hard and heartbreaking for me.
