So, I've decided to start a spinoff of the In My Mailbox meme hosted by The Story Siren, called What I want in my mailbox. Yes, this is exactly what it sounds like. Every Saturday I'll post one or two books that I really want to read, and would love if you joined in on the fun! So, grab the button in the sidebar and make sure to leave a link to your post in the comments! (only because I fail at trying to use Mr. Linky... Shhhh.)
This week's pick is Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher!
Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker--his classmate and crush--who committed suicide two weeks earlier. On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of the reasons why. If he listens, he'll find out how he made the list. Through Hannah and Clay's dual narratives, debut author Jay Asher weaves an intricate and heartrending story of confusion and desperation that will deeply affect teen readers.
Yes, I know, how have I not read this yet?! I've been told many times that I am clinically insane for not having read this book. That fact is that I really want to! The only reason that I haven't run to local B&N is that I have a stack of books sitting in my room waiting to be read(and reviewed!). Once said stack is significantly smaller, I'll definitely be picking up a copy of Thirteen Reasons Why.
Happy Saturday everyone!
