I said I was going to do it….so I did. I’m joining the ranks of those other clever bloggers who review young adult books! Although I can assure you, I am probably far less clever than the other bloggers. I just read so much growing up, that I thought it can’t hurt to have another voice in this little universe. If I’m lucky I will even add something to the mix.
My teen years were pretty unhappy. Not for any particular reason, I had a good family and many great friends. I just really loathed being an adolescent. My absolute favorite thing about being a teenager was all the time I got to read. Now I have a job, I have a husband, I have a mortgage, student loans and a car payment, and I have a son, currently 22 months old. I don’t have a lot of time to read for pleasure. Still, I wouldn’t trade being an adult for being a teenager for a million bucks!
So I went to the used book store to start off my blog. First up will be the classic Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret by Judy Blume. I managed to pick up several excellent choices to get this blog started right! My plan was to be totally snarky about the books, but once I got to the used book store, I started feeling all nostalgic about the books. Can I really be snarky about something I have such fond memories of? Can I really snark Judy Blume, one of my heroes? I guess we’ll have to wait and see…..
If you have any ideas of books that you really want me to review, don’t hesitate to ask! Also, I seem to remember a series of teen books about four roommates at an all-girls boarding school, who write letters to the boys at the all boys boarding school in the same town. Anyone remember the name of the series and the author? I totally want to find those books!
Thanks for reading! I love comments!
