This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

Hey everyone! I figured it was about time for another SD review, especially since I still haven't finished Imaginary Enemy. I swear I'm trying, but One Tree Hill won't stop nagging me! Anyway, here's the description of This Lullaby:

When it comes to relationships, Remy doesn't mess around. After all, she's learned all there is to know from her mother, who's currently working on husband number five. But there's something about Dexter that seems to defy all of Remy's rules. He
certainly doesn't seem like Mr. Right. For some reason, however, Remy just can't seem to shake him. Could it be that Remy's starting to understand what those love songs are all about?

This book seems to be a favorite of SD readers. I can definitely see why. This book starts off with a very relatable subject: Fear of falling in love. In this book, Remy makes sure that if she dates a boy, she won't get too attached. But then she meets Dexter. Dexter is absolutely adorable. I mean, the first thing he says to her is just pure adorable-ness. I could definitely relate to Remy in a lot of ways, especially with the bad parental examples. This book is definitely one of Sarah's best and I'm sure you guys will love it! This is a definate must read for the end of summer. It makes me excited to go back to school to see who I, myself, might bump into.
Like most SD books, this one is full of wonderful, real, and captivating characters that pull you in and don't let you go until they're finished telling their story. Plus, I love the lyrics of the This Lullaby song that Remy's dad wrote for her. I wish there was an actual song made up for it so I could listen to it endlessly. If you're looking for a humorus, real, and sometimes sad book, then this one is for you. They should have it at your library, but I definitely recommend buying this one because I know you're going to want to read it again and again. Hope you guys enjoy!

PS: I just thought of a cool prize for a contest. Would anyone like a Sarah Dessen themed t-shirt? Maybe I could make a generic one, or you, as the winner, could pick which book or quote you would want on it? Something like the Wish Catering Wish bone logo, or Hate Spinnerbait, or even something like Clementine's or The Bike Shop. Sound cool to you guys? Let me know!


  1. This sounds really good! I haven't read this one yet but I'm going to pick up next time I'm looking for something to read.

    That sounds like a great prize! I think everyone would love it! Having the winner pick the shirt would be cool, since everyone has their own favorite SD book :)

  2. Haha HATE SPINNERBAIT, lol love her books. I loved This Lullaby! I think Just Listen will always be my favorite :)


  3. Just Listen is my favorite, too. Wow! That would be an amazing prize! I'd like the one from Just Listen the 'Fuck You' 'Or not', but I don't think that'd go over too well in public. Loveddd the review and as always SD! This is the favorite of most SD readers I know. Thanks for the help on my blog and the comment you left!Glad you enjoyed it!

  4. That's a really creative idea. I like it.

  5. This Lullaby was a great book too. Every time I read it I couldn¿t put it down. I got so jealous of the main character, Remy, at times because her life seemed so fun and perfect. Dexter, her musician boyfriend is hysterical and adorable; what else could you ask for in a guy? The way they meet is so cute, and if it ever happened to me it would just make me laugh thinking about it. Although Remy¿s life seems perfect to me, she might think otherwise. Her mother is an author and has had more marriages then books she wrote, because of this Remy refuses to open her heart up completely, and insists that love isn¿t real. Her brother who used to share the same hate-love attitude has fallen under the spell and gets engaged to a ¿goodie two shoes¿ who completely changed him, and Remy never lets him live it down. She just finished her senior year in high school and the book is basically what she does on her last summer before she heads off to Stanford College, leaving her friends and family behind. She goes out and parties with her three best friends, or goes to a popular club called Bendo a lot. This is a drama filled book filled with laughs.


Comments anyone?
