Q: What hyped up book was worth all of the fuss?

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
I don’t know if there was a lot of hype when this book was released. However, over the years, I kept hearing how amazing this book was.  It took me a long time to read it, because I knew what it was about, and I had to be in the right mindframe to read it.  But man, once I started, I couldn’t stop.  Amazing!

  1. I have heard a couple of things hear and there about Speak, but I’m not quite sure if I’m willing to read that one. Not a big fan of Anderson, but Speak does sound like a book worth reading!

    Yes! I loved Speak! Have you seen the movie? Also, if you like Speak, you would also love Sarah Dessen’s Just Listen (which is my favorite Dessen book!).

    Oh, good to know! I’ve only read Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson and wasn’t too impressed! I’m definitely going to give this one a try now 🙂

      I’ve not read Wintergirls (or anything besides Speak by Anderson), but I can tell you Speak is amazing! And even though it is an emotional read, it is also a quick read.

  7. I haven’t yet read this one. Might do so now!

  14. Heather Wood says:

    Thanks for stopping by my Friday Hops! I recently reviewed the book Rape Girl and this book kept coming up in discussion. I really need to get to it.

  15. Great choice! I read Speak based on all the reviews I saw around Banned Book week awhile back, and I’m so glad I did!

  17. Sounds like a intense read and I will read it when I feel like I’m in such a ‘mood’.

    My FF.

  18. I keep spotting this at the library and will have to check it out one day.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  19. Great pick! I have fond memories of this book. Though it was a sad read but still amazing. Did you see the movie with Kristen Stewart?

  20. I haven’t picked Speak up for the same reason, I’m afraid that the topic will be too ‘much’. I ought to give it a try soon!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    YES! Speak is brilliant! I definitely recommend Catalyst and Wintergirls, as well.

  27. Annmarie says:

    I’ve heard great things about this book but I still haven’t read it.

  28. Awesome choice, it was worth it!

  29. I have sort of heard about it but I don’t really know what it’s about or anything. Now I’m curious.

  30. I got this book from the library but never got around to reading it. I’ll have to pick it back up again soon!

    Thanks for stopping by 🙂
