We (Jacinda and Jasmine from The Reading Housewives of Indiana and Heidi from YA Bibliophile) have declared May 9th – 15th Sarah Dessen Week! That’s right! A week of sharing the Sarah Dessen love! We would be thrilled if any of y’all wanted to join us. It’s going to be pretty informal. All we ask is that you post something Sarah Dessen related at some point during the week.

    I just purchased a whole bunch of new Dessen books, and am hoping to read them soon! I’ve already mentioned doing a review, but I will think about other participation as well!!

  2. Alex (A Girl, Books, OtherThings)

    I’ll save the date!
    I had been planning on reviewing some of her books that I haven’t reviewed yet in my blog (This Lullaby, Dreamland and Just Listen) so I might just do something around that and try to drag a friend or two into it!

    I have I think FOUR Sarah Dessen books sitting on my TBR pile in my apartment, and I haven’t read any of them! This will be a good kick in the pants, I think.

    @Kate Just Listen is my favorite. The Truth about Forever and Along for the RIde are both student favorites. I’ve never read one I haven’t liked and I’ve read them all (multiple times!)

    A whole week devoted to Sarah Dessen and her awesome books? Yes please! Thanks for doing this…I’m looking forward to it!

    Well, this is amazing timing. After I read my next YA buy, I was planning on buying my first Sarah Dessen book – The Truth About Forever! That’ll be just about the right time for the review 🙂 I’ll see if I can post something else too.

    This sounds great! I just put a book that I haven’t read in a few years, LOCK AND KEY, on hold so I shall review that and hopefully do some other fun stuff too 🙂 Fantastic idea!

    Sarah Dessen has always been my favorite YA author. I’m so excited for her new book and I think Sarah Dessen Week is a wonderful idea =)

    Right on! Just Listen is one of my favorites too. Lock and Key is my favorite. Really loved Along for the Ride. Well now, I could go on and on, lol! Thanks for organizing this.

    I just checked out a couple of Sarah Dessen books from the library, I got Along For The Ride and Just Listen. So, I’ll definitely be reading those and posting my reviews, plus I was thinking about posting little book blurbs for a few of her other books. I’m really excited about this, because it will be my first time to read a Sarah Dessen book and I’ve heard so many great things a bout her. 🙂

    I haven’t read any of her books but have two on my bookshelf. I’ll read these this week, thanks for hosting this.
