I read stargirl. It made me sad.

Lisa said...

So happy to find your blog--I am always looking for a good book to read and from your favorites, it looks like we have similar tastes! Just getting ready to read "My Sister's Keeper" which made your favorites list in August of '07.

Tricia said...

Welcome Lisa! Let me know if you like it or if you have any recommendations for me.

Lark said...

Hey Tricia, I have been looking at your blog for awhile and love seeing what to read next! You have great reviews too...I was laughing so hard at your review for Christmas jars. Anyway, I read "These is my words" and loved it. I especially loved it because I lived in Tucson for so many years and really could visualize it. so thanks for the recomendation! Also, the Twilight series and "Year of Wonders" hit my top ten.

Jennifer: I'm sorry you didn't like Stargirl. You may find Love, Stargirl more upbeat if you are still interested in following the story.

Lark: Thanks for the Year of Wonders recommendation. I'll add it to my list. Glad you like These is My Words. Check out the next two in the series as well. More Tucson!
