Over the next few weeks I’ll be taking a trip down memory lane with some of the books I loved as a child and teenager. I thought it would be interesting to revisit the themes of the day and relate them to life now.

Just holding these two books in my hands takes me back to the girl I used to be (and still am at heart), though I am slightly dismayed that the covers aren’t the same as the ones I had, and the ones advertised on eBay. Still, it’s the content that matters.

Watch this space as I review these two Judy Blume classics as an adult and ponder why they meant so much back then.

  1. I love this idea, and am looking forward to reading your reviews. Judy Blume’s “Are you there God…” was a favorite of mine growing up, as well.

  3. Aw I just love Judy Blume! I mainly wanted a Kindle so I could download all of her books and not feel embarassed in public. I do the same with Jacqueline Wilson as well. Sorry not sorry!

    • You have nothing to be embarrassed about! She’s such a good writer though and reading them again is so nostalgic, it takes me right back to how I felt when I was the same age as her main characters, and preoccupied with the same issues! Enjoying it so much.

      I think I’m a bit old for Jacqueline Wilson though, those books I just missed.

      Hope you are well, beautiful! xoxo

    Ugh, I LOVE Are You There God.
    The bust-increasing chant always cracked me up.
