For Black Girls Like Me by Mariama J Lockington In…
My favorite movie is Beauty and the Beast and for as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be Belle. I wanted a castle where I didn’t have to do anything but enjoy my books in my giant library. I have always felt like Belle, an outcast who was always a little “odd” with my nose stuck in a book.
So, when I married my husband, I told him I needed a library, like the one in the movie, and I have never let him forget it.
Finally, he decided to make me some shelves and now, I have my dream library!
