Forgotten Friday (4)

Forgotten Friday is something new here at bookmarked! After researching other memes, I discovered there really weren't any that featured the books we've always wanted to read but keep forgetting about. This is an idea I've had floating around for a while because I am notorious for wanting to read old releases and getting side tracked by the new books constantly coming out.

This week's featured book is . . .

Looking for Alibrandi
Melina Marchetta
first published 1992

I am so ashamed to say I have not read any of Melina Marchetta's novels. I have heard nothing but great things about all of her novels, especially the Printz winner Jellicoe Road. Because I typically read authors' novels in the order they were published, so I most want to read Looking for Alibrandi. I love books that explore family relationships, and I love books about growing up. Looking for Alibrandi sounds like it's about both.


  1. I see you have room on your debut author challenge. I hope that you'll add Illegal to your list!
