Julie Anne Peters lives on my street!

French Toast's picture

Okay I lied, but I got you to open this thread didn’t I? But Julie Anne Peters did host a spelling bee at my school in elementary school once; I think I was in third grade.

Anyway, I’ve read Keeping You a Secret and I just finished reading Far From Xanadu a couple of days ago. I thought it was really good. I really like her writing; I think she makes it so it is easy to relate to her characters. I couldn’t put either of those books down for a second. I finished them in a day. I hate it when I do that, then I don’t have anything to read lol.

It was awesome in Keeping You a Secret that I totally knew where she was talking about with street names and stuff. Knowing that she lives in Lakewood makes me feel so close to the action. The street names make me think maybe she lives like on my street and I don’t know it. Wouldn’t that be awesome? Unlikely, but awesome. Sorry, I’m just really easily star struck, or I guess you could call it ‘writer struck’.

Does anybody else have any opinions on Julie Anne Peters and her writing?

YAY!

I'm so glad you like her writing. Keeping You a Secret was my first gay book and it's my favourite book of all time. I love her writing style. She's my favourite author. I just finished Luna this morning. I loved it, I can totally relate to her characters. I haven't read any other of her books, my book store doesn't carry them. I was surprised to find Luna and Keeping you a Secret there. I couldn't put either of them down when I was reading them. I've even read Keeping You a Secret twice and am planning on reading it again soon, and I just finished it a month ago (the second time).

I love her books! I read Kee

I love her books! I read Keeping you a secret, Far from Xanadu, Luna, Define "Normal" and the her lastest book Between Mom and Jo. They are amazing. I read up on the internet that she is creating a book comprized up of short lesbian stories. It comes out in 2007 I believe. Something more to add to my bookshelf collection. It would be amazing tomeet her or even get a book signing.

I adore Keeping You a Secret.

I adore Keeping You a Secret. I've read it so many times, I practically have it memorised. I read Luna a few weeks ago, and it was pretty good too. What I like is that her writing is so realistic. It's like she captured my thought process. =)
