Pick-A-Book Thursday #3

Pick-A-Book Thursday is a weekly meme brought you by me :) It is here for all of us to get our to be read piles down a little and help us get to the books we really want to read but just never got around to them. We can sit here weekly and talk about books we pulled from our jars or those that don't have jars, those who picked one off their shelf! Click here for the Original post for more details!


I guess first things first. . . . A couple weeks ago I pulled from my jar the Seventeenth Summer by Maureen Daly. One, I didn't know it was written back in the 40s, I just thought as I was reading it, that the author wrote about it being back in the 40s. I had to give up on it, I tried really hard, but I got to the point where I did anything else I could so I wouldn't have to read it, It shouldn't be like that. It is the first book that I have to say I couldn't finish. I might try to read it again later, but for now, it will just be lonely on my shelf.

Now for this weeks entry :)

What book did you pull from your To-Be-Read Jar?

I pulled
Forever... by Judy Bloom

This book is pretty small so I should be able to fly through it! It has always sounded wonderful just never got around to it, but now I finally can :)

Here is the Synopsis for it:

Katherine and Michael meet at a New Year's Eve party. They're attracted to each other, they grow to love each other. And once they've decided their love is forever, they make love.

It's the beginning of an intense and exclusive relationship, with a future all planned. Until Katherine's parents insist that she and Michael put their love to the test with a summer apart...

"Forever" is written for an older age group than Judy Blume's other novels for children. It caused a storm of controversy when it was first published because of its explicit sexual content.

It was a book ahead of its time - and remains, after thirty years in print, a teenage best-seller. America's No. 1 children's author has written some of the best books of our time about real-life issues - family stress and pressures, what happens when your parents divorce, the problems of growing up and sexual awakening, bereavement - with insight, sensitivity and honesty.
