The Sunday Exchange (11/11/18): Share a Post about a Book That Makes You Feel Better about the World

Sunday Exchange

Introduction

The Sunday Exchange is a new weekly feature we are introducing at Pages Unbound where we ask you, our readers, to share a post from your own blog that matches the week’s theme.  The goal is to allow you to share posts you are proud of or think other people will find interesting and to help other people find fun posts to read.

This Week’s Theme

Share a Post about a Book that Makes You Feel Better about the World

The “Rules”

  1. Share your post title, the URL of the post, AND a brief explanation of what the post is/why you think people might like to read it in a comment on this blog post.
  2. Try to make the post fit the week’s theme.
  3. Please share only one post each week.
  4. The post does not have to be recent. It can be from any time in your blog’s archives.
  5. Consider visiting some other bloggers’ posts.
  6. We won’t be closing the comments after a week has passed, so *technically* you can still add your post later, but it may not get that much traffic if you share your post a month later.

That’s it! We hope you participate, and check back next Sunday for a new theme and another chance to share!

A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd

Natalie Lloyd writes a town full of kindness where the real magic lies in the way others reach out to help one another.  The story might just inspire readers to be a little kinder, too.

    Goodness, I haven’t left a comment on The Sunday Exchange in a while! I never seem to have posts that fit the topics! Hahaha. Today I decided to share my review of Wonder by R.J. Palacio. It’s such a wonderful book that beautifully displays how kindness can always be found, so long as you know where to look. I particularly love the morals that are evident in the story, and I adore seeing how many of the individuals overcome their own vices throughout Auggie’s story. ❤️

    “Marvel’s Champions – The Youth Shall Lead Us”

    https://mycomicrelief.wordpress.com/2018/06/20/marvels-champions-the-youth-shall-lead-us/

    This post celebrates Mark Waid and Humberto Ramos’ run on ‘Champions,’ a comic about teenage superheroes disenfranchised with the way adult superheroes do things. It’s anchored in social justice, activism, and a model of “superheroing” that readers can follow to actually change our world for the better. I can’t help but be inspired when I read it! It makes you want to go out and change things…while making you believe you can. I love it.

    I’m a little surprised that this book makes me feel hopeful, seeing as how it’s about the Spanish Civil War, one of the bleakest periods in human history, but I think George Orwell’s “Homage to Catalonia” fits the bill. This past July I wrote about its use of dark comedy, and how the “mere presence” of humor “suggests…there is still room for hope” even in the worst of circumstances.

    Just about to finish They Were Heroes, which is about the tremendously selfless love and sacrifice various Marines showed in Iraq and Afghanistan. These heroes show what real men are like and put into sharp contrast all the other men who have failed in this area so miserably. My blog post is from The Lion of Sabray, about the Afghan warrior who saved the life of Navy SEAL, Marcus Luttrell. God bless our troops and all those who fight evil!
