Sarah Dessen Book Challenge Hosted by I Eat Words

Sarah Dessen is one of my favorite YA contemporary authors.  Her stories capture the essence of what I feel makes a great contemporary read for teens.  I've read quite a few of her books, but there are still a few that are patiently waiting on my shelf.  So when I saw that I Eat Words was hosting a challenge for Sarah Dessen books I thought, what a great opportunity!

The Challenge: Read a selected Dessen book from the monthly schedule posted at I Eat Words & then come back & tell us what you think!

The Reward: You get to fall in love with Dessen's stories (all over again - or for the first time!)

Here is the monthly schedule of which books to read when:

February - Just Listen
March - This Lullaby
April - Dreamland
May - The Truth About Forever
June - The Moon and More
July - That Summer
August - Along for the Ride
September - Someone Like You
October - Keeping the Moon
November - What Happened to Goodbye
December - Lock and Key

I'm pretty excited about this (especially since she has a new release, THE MOON AND MORE coming out June 4, 2013!!) -- so let me know in the comments if you plan to join in & be sure to stop by I Eat Words and let them know as well :)


  1. What a great idea! I am totally in :D

  2. I'm so in! I've read a couple of hers but keep meaning to read more! Yay motivation!

  3. Oh, this is fun! I have 2 left of hers to read: Just Listen and The Truth About Forever! I am ready for her new one this summer!!!! I'll definitely try to do February and May to cover those 2 books for the fun!

  4. Oh wow! I want to do this! I just finished What Happened to Goodbye recently, and it was so good. I'd been putting it off for so long, but now I'm happy I did because I read it at the perfect time for me!

  5. Ginger! Thanks so much for blogging about this :) I'm really excited you're going to be joining, and I can't wait to hear what you think about the rest of Sarah's books.

    Also, I am an idiot and left Lock and Key off, so I just updated the post and added it as December's read ;) Whooooops. I guess this is why I shouldn't write blog posts late at night.

    Yay! Thanks again <3

  6. I might have to consider taking part in this. The only Dessen book I've read is LOCK AND KEY, and I really enjoyed it. I wouldn't mind reading more. :)

  7. I'm in! SD brought us together! Haha.

  8. This sounds like a lot of fun! I've been meaning to read more of her books. The only one I've read was Someone Like You about six years ago and I read it because of the movie How To Deal (which was awful lol). I think I might to have join this challenge :)

  9. I love this idea and am TOTALLY going to get in on this sometime this year!

  10. I am so doing this! I love Dessen!

  11. Thanks for sharing this. I might not have found it otherwise. :)
