    I’m just about to do my sign-up post 🙂 I’m excited to hear what you think of The Bell Jar. It’s been on my to-read pile for a while just because it’s a classic, but I haven’t read many blogger reviews.

      I will definitely keep you posted! I’ve heard really great things about it and I really wanted to read it before reading Meg Wolitzer’s Belzhar. Can’t wait to go read your sign up post! 🙂

      Haha I’m a super competitive person, especially with myself so I thought I’d keep it light and expectation-free so I don’t get too out of hand 😉 Thank you for commenting!

    AH! Loved Plath’s The Bell Jar. Harrowing. I also liked The Giver… a great YA book my sister taught in her Grade 7 class, a while back. Still, The second book in that series –Gathering Blue– is even better.

    I am dying to read A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing! Looking forward to that review.

    Happy reading.

      Thanks Carole! I can’t believe I haven’t read those books yet but that’s what this readathon is for 😉 I’ve actually already started A Girl is a Half-formed Thing and I’m really liking it so far! There’s a bit of a learning curve to it as it’s written in a really unique stream-of-consciousness way, but once you get the hang of it you can really get into the mind of the narrator. Can’t wait to share my full review when it’s ready 😀

      Thanks for your comment!

    Hope you enjoy your first readathon, Karen! 🙂 I loved my first BoB 3 years ago and the friends I made then have been my best bookish buddies ever since. I’m sure you’ll love it. Good luck with all your goals and hope you manage to finish all your books!

    Here’s what I’ll be reading next week

    You have some great books here! I’ve read The Giver multiple times…now I am looking forward to the movie. And The Bell Jar is another one of those books that has stuck with me long after I finished it. Good luck and have fun!

      Hearing that the movie was coming out definitely pushed me to read The Giver asap! Have you had a chance to see the movie yet? I’m really looking forward to The Bell Jar as I keep hearing great things about it – I’m glad it was the same for you! Thank you for your comment!
