Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret by Judy Blume
5.0 out of 5 stars One of my faves!, 8 July 2014
I forgot just how much I love this book so a big thank you to Pan Macmillan and NetGalley for allowing me to rediscover this Judy Blume classic.

Good lord, did I relate to this book back in the day. I was (luckily?) well endowed just like Laura so didnít go through the whole Ďwhen-will-I-get-boobsí phase but I do distinctly remember praying to get my period once or twice. Oh, how the times change.

I think it goes without saying that Blume captures perfectly what itís like to be a pre-teen with angst about important issues (religion) and likewise not so important issues. When I read this as a kid, I was admittedly more hung up on the crushes and puberty. Reading it… Read more

But then, one by one in years past or present, they all hurt the wrong person, a person whose father has limitless powers and can make the unimaginable… Read more
Someone Else's Wedding by Tamar Cohen
Someone Else's Wedding by Tamar Cohen
When I originally rated this book on my Goodreads, I gave it four stars. Now, after reflection, Iíve had to upgrade that rating to five stars simply because Iím still thinking about the Friedmans, James and the rest of the characters.

This book packs a wallop but without giving too much away I really canít say why. Over the course of a bank holiday weekend, Fran and Saul Friedman along with their grown up daughters Pip and Katy attend the wedding of Jamie Irving. Weíre led to believe that Jamie is a long-time friend of the family but the truth is so much more salacious and interesting. Unlike other reviewers, I was so wrapped up in other plotlines within the story that I didnít… Read more
