Book of the Week: 13 Little Blue Envelopes

Remember that time when I said I wasn’t going to read any fun YA until I finally finished The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo? Do you want to know how long that plan lasted?

Well, actually it kind of died two weeks ago.

But the second attempt at that plan died yesterday.

I’m still reading Dragon Tattoo, but I need fun YA to keep me going.

I’ve actually already read this amazing book before, 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson. I am, however, now RE-reading it, because its sequel comes out next week (The Last Little Blue Envelope) and I’ll be darned if I don’t get that book the day it comes out. Anyway, this one is just as amazing as the first time I read it. I always love what Maureen Johnson writes, though, so I may be a wee bit prejudiced about it.

Although, in a way, I don’t consider it cheating on my Dragon Tattoo goal, seeing as how I’ve read 13 Little Blue Envelopes before. Next week, when I start reading the sequel as soon as it’s in my hands, then I’ll definitely be cheating on my goal. But that’s next week’s issue.
