Why, thank you. :)
Well done, Jenny. I loved reading about your reaction to GETTING THE GIRL. I now have to read it again. And the other Wolfe books.
I should re-read The Underdog and Fighting Ruben Wolfe. It's been awhile.
Awesome! I commented about this on there too, but I love the song Killing Me Softly. :) And now you've got me interested in this book...
You should read it! I think you'd like it.
I love your site and am ecstatic to honor your hard work with the One Lovely Blog Award. My post with the details here: http://ajarndtbooks.blogspot.com/2012/10/winner-of-one-lovely-blog-award.html
Wow! Amazing post, Jenny! I would probably like that book, too. Haven't even heard of Zusak's other novels, but this one I'll pay attention to. Thanks for that. ;)
I know you don't usually like contemporary fiction but no one can dislike Zusak!
What a great post, Jenny. I've never read that book, but I know how it feels to feel like that when I've read a book. You articulated your feelings so well. If only I could explain my feelings like that. Great job!
Thanks. I was worried I wasn't going to get my feelings across. :)
Jenny that was soooo good! I've only read The Book Thief by him and I've never really thought about his other books but now they are definitely on my radar. Did you have to pick the third book in the series though? Cause now I have to read 2 books before I can read the one that you really loved! ;)
Sorry, but you'll love the rest I bet. You won't regret reading them all.
I admit it (as I hang my head). I am one of those people who have only read The Book Thief and I Am Messenger, but after your post I will remedy that soon.
Yeah, his other books aren't as well known but they're definitely worth the read. :)
I LOVE Markus Zusak! His writing is so imcredibly amazing. I loved The Book Thief, but I Am Messanger was definitely my fav of the two. My fav part was when they gave away free beer to get folks to go to church. I laughed so hard!
I like I am the Messenger over The Book Thief too. Getting the Girl just holds a special place in my heart.
