If you haven’t read “Thirteen Reasons Why” by Jay Asher, you should go read it now. I stayed up all night because I could not put it down. I actually read a review about the book, found out it was going to be on paperback on June 14, and just a couple days later went and bought it. That’s how much the review stayed with me.
I occasionally write these book reviews even though they have nothing to do with the way my blog is set up, but I write them because I really care. I’ve read other books (most of them by Malcolm Gladwell this year) but I’ve never felt compelled to write about them. The last fiction I’ve read was “The Book Thief” and I give a nod to javabeans for being the one who finally convinced me to read it. “Thirteen Reasons Why” is just one more book that I have to write something about.
