I didn't get a lot of reading in...(Meaghan)

Hey guys! I'm new here, as you can probably guess. Well, my name is Meaghan, and I'm 13. I just started eight grade. Today, actually. :D Anyway, I was enjoing my last week of summer, so I only got a little reading in this week. Most of it was by the pool, but we'll go into that later. :D

The only book I actually finished was Marthe Jocelyn's Would You. It was a short read, around 150 pages, but it was a very good read. I enjoyed the writing style of it a lot. I was just looking through the book to find stuff to write about it and I actually just noticed that it's not written in past tense. It's written in present tense. I quite like that, actually. :D

So...more about Would You. Nat's life is thrown into chaos when her best friend and sister, Claire, is hit by a car. Claire enters a coma. While Nat is waiting for her sister to wake up, she dosen't know what to do. She can't help to think about Claire. Will Natalie's praying work? Will Claire ever wake up?

Then I read parts of Peeps by Scott Westerfeld and The Book Theif by Markus Zusak. I quite like Peeps and I'm starting to get into The Book Theif, but I don't really have much to say about them. I'm only on page 80 out of 550 of The Book Theif, and 139 out of 312 of Peeps. Expect reviews in another post. :D

I'm going to the library later today. What should I check out?

Welcome Meaghan! I'll be starting 8th grade a week from today too.

If you haven't read anything by Sarah Dessen, get her books NOW! They're completely amazing, she';s my favorite author.

I agree with Kelsey about Sarah Dessen =D

I'd also recommend... Catherine Ryan Hyde. Um... Violet on the Runway. Gosh, I don't even know what else. It's hard to give book recommendations...
