  • I read a lot, and I have a lot of opinions, so I can't believe I haven't made a list like this before. If you are even a little bit like me or you want to get a peek into my psyche (you probs don't), these are the books to read.

Anna – you must ditch whatever you’re doing right now, go to the bookstore and buy Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty. This instant! This is not just a good book as in, wow I just read a really good book. This is a good book as in OH MY FREAKIN’ GOD, HOW COULD I HAVE GONE THIS LONG WHITOUT KNOWING JESSICA AND MARCUS?!?! It’s a whole new dimension of quality. I like a lot of the books you mentioned but they do. not. compare.

If you havn’t already you should check out the review on Forever young adult. Poshdeluxe does not joke around!

I know I sound like a maniac, but I really can’t urge you enough. They’re the type of books you, after finishing reading it, just want to turn to page one and read it all over again. Those other books can wait. You don’t want another Jessicaless day in you life!
