The Summer I Dared : A Novel
6 journalers for this copy...
I'd like to start a ring on this book. I have so many books to read because I'm involved in so many rings already, so I'll read this one when it makes it back to me!
The ring begins. Participants:
Hope you all enjoy
I just received the book in the mail. I will read it next. I will journal again when I'm done.
I really liked this book as you can see by the 10 rating I gave it. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed this author. She has a great balance in her writing. For me she gives me the right amount of detail. I was cheering all the way for Julia. I will be mailing this out tonight to Casperette. Happy reading!
Oh wow - another good looking book! I am going to have to lock myself away to read and read and read! Thanks so much!
Wow! I have read one other book by this author, The Three Wishes' and I loved that as well. This one was an excellent read. I learned about angora rabbits and about lobster harvesting. I found a lot of similarities between the main character Julia and myself. I loved her independence and her spirit. Every year I make a list of "characters I will miss" and she will definately be on that list. I wish her well. Off to the next person on this bookring! : )
This arrived today. Can't wait to start it! I have to be honest - within the past week, several rings/rays showed up. I am reading them in order they arrived, so I can't read this one right away. I will journal it again when I do start. I already have nicole4's addy, so will be able to send it on the second I finish.
Finished this last night. Really enjoyed this book. First book I've read by this author and am happy to know I have 2 other books by her on my bookshelf, which I look forward to reading. Thank you for sharing this book, Rrrcaron! :)
In the mail to nicole4 today.
I actually received this book on 7/8, but forgot to write down the BCID so I could journal it at work on friday! So, as it stands, I'm already almost done with it! :)
Very good book. At first I found it hard to get into, but the more I read, the more I got sucked into the Big Sawyer life! The story is one that really makes you evaluate life and what it's about. Julia was a very compassionate character and your heart went you to her and you were proud to watch her grow stronger over the course of the book. Very good!!
Mailed home to Rrrcaron today!!
I received this in the mail sometime last week. I only write sometime as I am so busy as my room mate left it on the counter for me. I have only so far read the first chapter but it seems like a good one.
Finished this novel last week and I really enjoyed it.
Will send it off as soon as I get the next in lines address.
