Sundays in Bed With…Speak
Sundays in Bed With… is a meme/feature started by my friend Kate at Midnight Book Girl, where we can highlight the book that we’re spending the day in bed reading (or the one we wish we could be reading all day in bed!).
I’m hoping to spend the day in bed with…
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
My book club is reading YA Classics and this is one of our selections. I’ve never read it but I’ve seen the movie adaptation starring Kristen Stewart (who was actually pretty good in it), and I enjoyed it. It’s a pretty heavy subject but it’s something that I think teens need to read.
What are you spending this Sunday in bed with? Let me know in the comments, or leave a link to your post if you’re participating in this meme and I’ll try to stop by your blog!

Great book! I did not know there was a movie… I need to watch it.

I hate that this book is so often challenged. It’s such a needed topic for young people to read about, and it is SUPER mild with the rape scene (especially considering the world we live in and the images and media we’re constantly exposed to). I haven’t seen the movie, but I want to.
The sad thing is, I’ve skipped a couple of Saturdays. I think I just needed a break from book blogging.
