I have a very short list of authors that I will always by at a sale no matter what. Sarah Dessen was once on this list but not anymore.
Don’t get me wrong, I do like her writing. It’s just that recently I’ve started to feel that I’ve outgrown her work. Her books are starting to seem childish and boring to me.
To be fair, I haven’t read much by her and I’m hoping this review can lead to a discussion of which books by her I could possibly still enjoy. The books that I have read so far include:
I liked Just Listen because it talked about so many important things that need to be talked about and I really appreciated that. This Lullaby on the other hand was just awful. I tried really hard but I couldn’t torture myself.
If you are a fan of Sarah Dessen please let me know which books you would recommend, if any. I just think I’m tired of the high school love stories and drama. If any of her work strays away from that, I’d gladly try again.
Hopefully something good will come from this but right now, I don’t plan on reading anything else by her. Not because I don’t like as an author, but because I don’t really feel like it’s for me.
2.5 out of 5 stars
