Friday Favorites

I decided to try something newish. Every Friday I'll post a book that I loved and is one of my favorites.

To start out, I pick The Year of Secret Assignments by Jaclyn Moriarty

In The Year of Secret Assignments, a tenth grade English teacher attempts to unite feuding schools by launching a pen-pal project. Best friends Cassie, Emily and Lydia initiate the correspondence, and are answered by Matthew, Charlie and Seb. Emily and Lydia are more than pleased with their matches, but quiet Cassie has a frightening experience with Matthew. When Lydia and Emily discover that Matthew has threatened their fragile friend, the Ashbury girls close ranks, declaring an all-out war on the Brookfield boys. Soon, the couples are caught up in everything from car-jacking and lock-picking, to undercover spying and identity theft.

This is definitely a fun read. I have reread it countless times and it never gets old. I just bought myself a copy of it when I went to Powell's last week, so I no longer have to keep checking it out from the Library. I love books that aren't straight narrative, like books that are told in letters and emails. I recommend this to everyone!


  1. I have got to read this book!! I've read about it twice this month and so far it seems like it's great. :)

    So you just finished the lovely bones?!! What did you think?

  2. I have to read one! I've always heard great things about it plus it sounds so cute. And I like your idea about posting a book you really enjoyed every Friday. :D

  3. I haven't seen this one yet--thanks for the recommendation!
