This June holds the birthday of a really really great YA author, someone whose books capture the hearts of teenagers, not only ones in USA but all over the world. Her style of writing is amazing - simple, close to heart but still so profound. Her latest book is also coming out at the end of the same month. So who is she?
Well, you all are right. It's Sarah Dessen! :D I love her so much. She's such a great person. She's talented and she's also nice and kind, too. Even though I've only read The Truth About Forever, I'm already deeply in love with her writing. And I guess so are you. As you can see, there're so many celebrations in May-June for Sarah's birthday as well as Along For The Ride. One of them is that at The Sarah Dessen Diarist which features a lot of authors and bloggers' posts dedicated to Sarah. And another one, which I want to mention today, is Sarah Dessen Challenge hosted by Em @ Em's Bookshelf. The goal is to finish all of Sarah's books before June 30th, and in plus, spread the word and the love to whoever you can. So if you're interested, please head to Em's blog and sign up.
I myself couldn't enter so I joined the fun by making some buttons for the challenge. Here they are
I think this challenge is nothing but awesome, hence, if you have time, make sure you don't miss it. The books will definitely satisfy your crave for excellent reads, especially in the summer. So what are you waiting for? RUSH to EM'S!!!!
Okay one thing before you go, because I'm a curious cat, please tell me your favorite Sarah Dessen book and why. You won't leave me dying in curiosity will you?
