The Judy Blume Challenge

Badge for the Judy Blume Challenge

How many of us grew up on Judy Blume books? I know I did. One of my all-time favorite books as a child was Blume’s Just As Long As We’re Together. Let’s take a trip down memory lane together and revisit Blume’s body of work. We are pretty laid-back over here at QGR. To participate all you need to do is read one book. Hopefully, you write a review and share the link with us.

The particulars:

The When: January 12, 2012 through March 20, 2012 (because we like short seasonal challenges.)

The Fun: Read any books written by Judy Blume, whether they be her YA or adult books. Read at least one but don’t let that stop you. πŸ˜‰

The Extras: We will be hosting a readalong of Forever. That might be the one book many of us haven’t read. (This could also count as your one Blume book.)

To sign up, all you have to do is leave a comment.

  1. I haven’t read any of the YA Judy Blume books, but have read some adult ones. And I haven’t read Forever. It looks very tempting….but I shouldn’t sign up for another challenge!

    I’m thinking about it….lol

      We’d love to have you! Of course, I understand the allure of challenges and the pitfalls for signing up for too many. The great thing about this one is you only have to read one book at minimum to participate. πŸ˜€

    Ooooo!! Okay: IN. It will depend which of the YA ones my mom still has at her house, most likely. Thanks for giving us until March, or I wouldn’t have taken the challenge! I may or may not be a procrastinator.

      Yay!!!!! Your guest post on Forever inspired me to go ahead and start the challenge. I have been plotting it for months. I’m excited that you will be playing along! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    You are too hilarious. A one-book requirement for the challenge? EVERYONE should be participating. I haven’t read Judy Blume in forever. I don’t even own any of her books. Now you have me thinking of which one I could read.

    Count me IN. I didn’t grow up reading Judy Blume but I helped my daughters grow up with her. I’m going to suggest they pick their favorite and read it with me. I did reread a couple last year for Banned Books Week and still love them. Oooo, it just occurred to me that my granddaughter might be persuaded to read along too. She’s 13 and definitely old enough to dip her toes into some good Blume.

    Love Blume and Hello God, but I swore off challengesthis year. GREAT challenge, though. Maybe I’ll change my mind πŸ™‚

    I will try to do the read-along – I never read Forever – it always sounded so scandalous!!! Can’t think of a better way to steam up things this winter to create that Spring thaw :0)

  8. Erin says:

    I REALLY love Judy Blume. It’s bizarre but by coincidence I’m currently reading Wifey.

  9. MWK says:

    Gah, so I totally read Tiger Eyes weeks ago, but did I write a post? NO. I suck. Maybe I’ll do it late. Als, Erin reminded me that I need to read Wifey…
