    I am reading this book right now. I am reading it slow because it is so warm and inviting, and also captivating. I went to college in a small southern town and I could relate so well to the setting and characters.

    So far I’ve read three of SAA’s books and I’m buying Peach Keeper tomorrow because I love having something warm and bright (with some dark undertones) to read as it warms up (slowly) up North… I’m swept up in a southern fairy tale every time I read one of her works… Yay for Sarah Addison Allen.

  3. TheDaezy says:

    I didn’t like The Girl Who Chased The Moon… but I think that may have been influenced by the fact that it was mainly about a teenager and I hate reading books about teenagers now. When I was 12 I loved it, because it was something to look forward to, but now I’m at the age where I want to look forward to adulthood and can do so in part by reading about older women.

    Just finished Sugar Queen… and Loved it! Now I’ve read all 3 from this wonderful, creative writer. But I see there’s a new novella, In My Dreams. Is it in book form?
    I need to hold these books in my hands and feel the pages! Keep Writing, Ms. Allen!
