The author I will be talking about today is Sarah Dessen. I started reading Sarah Dessen in 8th grade. My 8th grade reading teacher offered Someone Like You as a lit circle book. I read some other book, but I was interested in her book so I borrowed it from my teacher and read the book. Then I talked my sister into reading Someone Like You. She loved it too. We were hooked.
I quickly started reading all of Sarah Dessen's books until there came a time when I only had three books left and I stopped because I wanted to save them. At least that was my excuse the real reason was because I found other authors to read. I love Sarah Dessen's books with a passion.
The thing I really like about Sarah Dessen is the fact that she mentions other books characters in her other books. I found a great blog post that shows some of her connections. You can find the link here. I also like how easy Sarah Dessen makes it for you to relate to her characters. Sarah Dessen's characters are normal teenagers experiencing normal problems. Many people want weird, out there, supernatural characters, but I have always been drawn to the characters that are just normal.
Books I have read by Sarah Dessen:
I have read 10 books total. I'm officially done with all her published novels besides her newest novel The Moon and More. My favorite novel is so hard to choose with Sarah Dessen because I loved every single one I have read besides Keeping the Moon. Just Listen quickly became one of my favorites, but I also really enjoyed the rest of her novels.
Sarah Dessen has a new book coming out on June 4 2013.
I will be reading this sometime in 2013 and there will be a review up.
That is pretty much it for me. Sarah Dessen is an amazing author and I would recommend her books to teenager girls. They are just amazing.
Thanks for reading
