i think i love you, a novel by allison pearson

David CassidyCover of David Cassidy

Images I stayed up last night to finish i think i love you, a novel by allison pearson.  the book is very british in its humor.  i had a hard time getting through the first half but really enjoyed the second half.  like theater, i generally check out after the first half if i don't like it but i stuck through it because i had to see what happened in the end. 

why did i had to stick it through?  because the book is about david cassidy.  two 13 year old girls who worship david cassidy in the first half of the novel and then in the second half, at middle age, they reconnect to go see him perform and meet him in person.  you can only laugh and relate if you were a david cassidy fan.

teen beat was one of my all time favorite magazines growing up.  i had david cassidy pictures on my wall just like the girls in the book but i wasn't loyal.  i also had bobby sherman and as much as i though donny osmond was cute i couldn't get pass the mormon thing ( even at that age ). 

that time of my life was short lived.  i was into plastering the wall next to my bed with their posters at 9 years old and then it was over.  but i can recall those posters as if they were yesterday.  hence, i had to finish the book and the hilarious insightful recent interview the author has with david cassidy at the end of the book.

    About 10 years ago, I was in a furniture consignment shop in Ridgefield, CT, admiring a small pine cabinet. As I was looking in the drawers, I found some papers that turned out to be personalized stationary with “David Cassidy” at the top. It turns out the cabinet had belonged to him (he had lived in town but had recently left). As a one-time member of the Partridge Family Fan Club myself, I suspect the stationary would have been worth more to some than the cabinet!I’m new to your blog and I really enjoy your posts. I’m currently living outside Boston and I like getting my NYC fix and also enjoy your profiles of women and their businesses. Plus, we’re at the same point in our lives (50 this year, teenaged kids, empty-nest coming). I’ve put several of your book recommendations on my request list at the library. It’s nice to start the day with a someone with shared interests. Thank you.Susan

      Loved the spice girls. Took my girls to see them. At six and four, beforetheir friends had ever heard of them, they dressed up as posh and sporty forHalloween. Girls ahead of the trend!

    This made me laugh out loud. When I was 7, my best friend (who was 8) loved David Cassidy, but I was all about his younger brother Shaun. I still know the words to some of his songs…I found my way over here from Fred’s blog after noticing your great name (Gotham Girl) and was thrilled to find your book list. Thanks!
