There's something about journals that I can't resist. Does anyone else have this problem? I could own a thousand of them and still, when I see a cute one, I'd have to buy it. I'm a journal hoarder. There. I've said it.
So you can imagine how excited I was when I got that (^) awesome Belzhar journal in the mail! In the book, BELZHAR, Jam and her classmates write about the moment their lives were torn apart. My writings may not be that intense, but I do have some pretty crazy stories to tell.
During the month of Sept, me and a few of my fellow bloggers/vloggers are going to be writing in our journals and sharing them with you on our various social medias. Make sure you're following me (AndyeReadingTeen) on Instagram, or Reading Teen on Tumblr to see all my journal pics!
This all kicks off with a Twitter chat with Meg Wolitzer and Mundie Moms today, September 3rd at 6pm EST. If you’d like to tune in, their Twitter handles are @MegWolitzer and @MundieMoms.
Below is a list of the bloggers and vloggers participating:
Alexa Loves Books | The Book Rat | Bookables | Bookish | Bloggers Heart Books | Elizziebooks | Girls in the Stacks | Good Books and Good Wine | I Am A Reader | Icey Books | Jessie the Reader | Katie’s Book Blog | Me, My Shelf and I | Mundie Moms | Novel Thoughts | The Perpetual Page Turner | Price is Wong | Reading Teen | Writer of Wrongs |
If life were fair, Jam Gallahue would still be at home in New Jersey with her sweet British boyfriend, Reeve Maxfield. She’d be watching old comedy sketches with him. She’d be kissing him in the library stacks.
She certainly wouldn’t be at The Wooden Barn, a therapeutic boarding school in rural Vermont, living with a weird roommate, and signed up for an exclusive, mysterious class called Special Topics in English.
But life isn’t fair, and Reeve Maxfield is dead.
Until a journal-writing assignment leads Jam to Belzhar, where the untainted past is restored, and Jam can feel Reeve’s arms around her once again. But there are hidden truths on Jam’s path to reclaim her loss.
From New York Times bestselling author Meg Wolitzer comes a breathtaking and surprising story about first love, deep sorrow, and the power of acceptance
