As I suspected I spent more of my weekend sewing the valance curtains for my kitchen windows than I did writing. I did some outlining though – does that count?
I did, however, get down to the library on Saturday, where I found that the Nashua Public Library’s teen section had a large collection of Christopher Pike paperbacks! I am swamped with books I need to read but I still picked one out: Gimme a Kiss.
Jane Retton would never let anyone read her diary filled with her wildest secrets. Then somehow her diary ended up at school. And soon, everyone was reading her final, shocking entry. Some girls would simply die. Other girls would kill. But Jane Retton–she would do both.
I could not remember any of Jane’s crazy secrets… and I also haven’t marked this as “read” on my Goodreads page, so there are two excuses to read it – and it’s super skinny, so there’s an excuse to waste time re-reading it, whatever the case may be. I think I am going to start writing reviews with spoilers in them just for my own reference.
My librarian self is curious about the circ stats on the Christopher Pike collection… Do kids still read these?
