Happy Release Day!

Happy Release Day to Courtney Summers, whose debut novel Cracked Up To Be was one of my early 2009 favorites. Her second novel, the amazing and intense Some Girls Are is out today.

If you read one contemporary YA book in 2010. It. Must. Be. This. One.* Check out my review HERE.

* I'm thinking about it, and I *may* be saying something similar about other books come later in the year. I tend to get *a little* excited about books I love. But SGA is fabulous and definitely worth the read.

LOVED this book.

Thanks for the book recommendations--I will definitely be adding them to my TBR list. I'm *trying* to come out of the lurking shadows and comment occasionally (since I really enjoy your blog but your 422 followers intimidate me!) So if I don't always pop up in your comments don't think I'm not reading. :)

I cannot wait to read this! *runs to check mail again*

Michelle Schusterman said...

Yes. Cracked Up to Be mandates that I read this. Sounds just as incredible.

I'll be putting Courtney's book on my list. This is the second post I've seen about it this evening. :)

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
