Sarah Dessen Discussion Thread #2

Thought I'd start a new thread. Continue discussing.

I have. It doesn't deal with anything dark in terms of what this book is about anyway. I think it's a pretty light summer read. But I didn't enjoy as much as a few of her other novels.

I liked Keeping The Moon a lot. I have 3 chapters left of This Lullaby and I'm enjoying it so much.

I'm glad you're enjoying This Lullaby Kaylee. Please let us know when you're finished, I'd love to know what you think about how things finish up between Dexter/Remi, Remi's mom, etc.

CatFoley16 (don't know your name, sorry), I finished This Lullaby a few minutes ago. I enjoyed it. I'm going to start Lock and Key either tonight or tomorrow.

Lol. Okay.
I feel like that's one of her lesser known novels. Not as popular. I think that was actually the last one I read in terms of all her books at the time.

1. Dreamland
2. Someone Like You
3. Along for the Ride
4. Keeping the Moon
5. This Lullaby
6. The Truth About Forever
7. That Summer
8. Lock & Key
9. Just Listen

I just read a Sarah Dessen novel for the first time, I hadn't even heard of her until very recently. I read The truth about forever in pretty much a day, it was very good I absoloutley loved it! Can't wait to read more by her, I was thinking of going for Just Listen next.

That's her new book right? Nah, I haven't read it, I keep trying to get my Dad to take me down to the Library so I can borrow it. I also keep meaning to read some of her older books (Particularly "Someone Like You", "Dreamland", and "That Summer").
