Readers of this blog know how much I love Melina Marchetta’s books.
You know what I love almost as much as I love her books?
Reading how other people love her books.
Chachic’s Book Nook just wrapped up Marchetta Madness, so you can do what I did this weekend: go, read, and nod in agreement over just how wonderful her books are.
Chachic begins the series with What Was Your First Marchetta, and the final post is Random Facts which also includes individual links to each Marchetta Madness post.
My favorite, of course, remains Jellicoe Road. (And, as a member of the Printz committee that selected Jellicoe Road, I cannot tell you how much I love seeing all the Jellicoe Road blogger love.)
What is your favorite Marchetta book?
If you meet someone who hasn’t read her books before, which one do you recommend they start with? Typically, I recommend Looking for Alibrandi, unless the person I’m speaking with is a fantasy lover, and I suggest starting with Finnikin of the Rock.
And, not to gloat or anything . . . but I have a copy of the film version of Alibrandi. I KNOW.
