Okayokayokay--so I'm a little late putting together my summer reading list. Forgive me, B-listers! I've always been a Class A procrastinaor! Not to brag, but it's where I excel.
We've already posted our Not Your Teacher's Reading List, now I'm posting my very own Read Along With lisapapa List. After sifting through various reviews, I've narrowed it down to 11 1/2 books that are on my Must Read list. (One of the books is a graphic novel. That can't really count as a whole book, right?)
A faithful girlfriend. A boyfriend in prison. Oooh, forbidden love is always intriguing--count me in!
I just read Gingerbread, and thought it was UH-mazing. Can't wait to read the sequel. Rachel Cohn, you're the coolest!
A teen start sent to the Heartland. Wait--where have I seen this before? Anyhoo, it sounds hilarious, and seems like the perfect thing to read by the pool.
Some people have parents who think they're gods. And some people have parents who ARE gods, like in this little number. Everyone loves Neil Gaiman, so I thought I'd better check it out.
Won the Prinz Award this year. People are talking about it, and they won't shut up. Time to hop on the bandwagon, I guess.
Time to read Sue Limb! I'm actually planning to read Girl, 15: Charming But Insane, too. They both sound hilarious--and like the story of my teenage life, hello!
Ummm...kind of scared to read this one, but I'm going to tough it out. It's about a "good guy" who commits a crime so awful that he can't even admit it to himself. Shiver.
This is one of those Nerdy Guy Makes Good books that have come into fashion with a vengeance this year. But it's supposed to be funnyfunnyfunny and super-smart, so I'm ditching all of the other Nerd Boy books and going with this one.
I'm reading this one just for the title.
Graphic novel--supposed to be wickedly funny and it'll probably take less than an hour to read. Any questions?
I'm so fascinated by this premise--a world where everyone gets to be supermodel gorgeous at age 16--that I may just read this first. Now tell me how to move there!
My writing partner, Chris Tebbetts, recommended this one, and he is never wrong (except when he disagrees with me). I'll let you know if he got this one right!
