Guest Post: Christine Hurley Deriso
What were your favorite books at 5, 10, 15 and 20 and why? From the books out now, which ones do you wish you had at each of those ages?
10: And Then There Were None. Who knew murder could be so fun?
15: The Women's Room. Fiction as social commentary ... cool!
20: Portnoy's Complaint. So scandalous, yet so funny.
Wish I'd had:
10: Do-Over. Yes, I wrote it, but I wish I'd known then that your mistakes make you stronger.
15: The Liar's Club by Mary Karr,as if I needed even more incentive to appreciate my wonderful child.
20: Chemistry: A Molecular Approach, which would have meant I was in premed, which would have meant I'd be making more money today than I am. (Just kidding.) (Kinda.)
Thank you, Christine!
So what are your favorites from the past, or ones you wish you had back then?
