Once again it is Friday and I am linking up with Heather at Blonde...Undercover Blonde for Book Club!
This week I read "Thirteen Reasons Why" by Jay Asher~
Here is the synopsis from Goodreads.com ~ "Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers thirteen cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker, his classmate and crush who committed suicide two weeks earlier.
Through Hannah and Clay's dual narratives, debut author Jay Asher weaves an intricate and heartrending story of confusion and desperation that will deeply affect teen readers."
My thoughts ~ For at least half the book all I could think is "they are making suicide sound like a game." I don't think the author intended it that way but overall I think most people don't like to hear about suicide so this can be a hard book to read and I empathize with Hannah at the end. I heard they are making this into a movie and I just think that it may come across as a valiant act of retribution. Now I definetly need to read something cheery!
Are you reading anything good? Any suggestions?
