Thankful Thursday

I’m thankful to have read so many terrific books by LJ authors this year. I don’t always remember to mention them on my blog, so it’s time for a list! In the order I read them:

The Legend of Zoey – by c_moonshower – GREAT! Sent a copy to my friend’s daughter in England.
Storky, How I Lost My Nickname and Won the Girl – by dlgarfinkle – Funny!
So Totally Emily Ebers – by lisayee – I love Lisa’s books.
Twisted - by halseanderson – Love the insight in the teenage male mind.
Tips on Having a Gay (ex) Boyfriend – by carriejones – I love Carrie … and I love her writing.
Tyrell – by coebooth – AMAZING. A book that will stay with me forever.
Tattoo – by jenlyn_b – Good girly read.
Wicked Lovely – by melissa_writing – One of the best books I’ve read all year, children’s or adult.
This Lullaby - by writergrl - She's Sarah Dessen. Do I need to say more?
Before, After, and Somebody In Between – by onegrapeshy – Heart-tugging and ultimately hopeful.
Blood Brothers – by medwriter – One of the best YAs I’ve read all year.
I Heart You, You Haunt Me – by lisa_schroeder – I got to read this in ARC form! It’s wonderful – I got chills near the end.
Stuck in the 70’s – by dlgarfinkle– Love the premise, love the funny stuff, even loved the surprise ending.
A Crooked Kind of Perfect – by lurban – The perfect MG. I loved it.
This is What I Did – by adellis – Excellent. Couldn’t put it down. It made me want to cut out half my male MC’s internal monologues.

And last but not least:
Lessons from a Dead Girl – by jbknowles – I finished it last night! Jo, I worried the whole way through, even though we know from the first chapter that Leah is dead – clearly, you nailed the tension! GREAT JOB!

P.S. Oh! And I read sarazarr's The Story of a Girl at the very end of last year. (It arrived a few days ahead of its January 2007 release.) It's nominated for the National Book Award!! Need I say more?

Oh, there's a few on this list I haven't read and want to. You must be a really fast reader. You read a new book like every 3 days! I'm in awe of all you do!!!
