Day 13: Your Favourite Writer – Maureen Johnson

Not bad time getting this up since the last one, haha ~ Yay /onaroll.

  1. Maureen Johnson
    I think I’ve told the story of how I first got into her books. It was way back in the day… at least like 5 years ago or something. I was at the Toronto Public Library at Bayview Village. There’s this creepy guy there who ALWAYS asks you what your name is, your address, phone number, etc. ’cause he seems to think everyone plans on stealing my card or something. ANYWAYS. He kept staring at me when I was looking at some of the books that were left on a table so I escaped to the YA section. There I found 13 Little Blue Envelopes. I decided to pick it up and when through the annoying process of checking it out through Mr. McCreepy. MOVING ON. I loved the book. As a 7th or 8th grader, this book was the craziest adventure, and I loved the envelope idea that took Ginny all across Europe. Years later, the sequel to it came out: The Last Little Blue Envelope. Somehow, I liked this book even more. I especially liked Oliver ’cause hot damn, he sounded like a pretty awesome guy by the end of the book.

    My favourite thing about Maureen Johnson, though, is that she’s really connected to her fans. She’s also a little quirky, but that makes her even more awesome. Through Twitter, I found that she has a large virtual presence and that’s pretty darn cool. She does Q&A stuff with her fans, and writes about the oddest things that happen to her or the people she knows. This made her seem more real to me, as a reader and as a fan. Honestly, she’s one of my favourite Tweeters~

    I have yet to read her new series, Shades of London, but I heard it’s awesome! I also enjoyed her book Girl At Sea, Devilish, and Suite Scarlet (though I still have yet to read the sequel…)
