"When you're a teenager, you're forever thinking: Do they like me? When you're a grown-up, as anyone over the age of thirty can attest, the question becomes: Do I like them?"
oh, my, YES!Isn't it funny? I get on fb and wonder why I care whether these people I've not spoken to for 20 years know what I'm 'up to.' especially since is was so important then.
Woah. I'm not 30 yet, but that's kind of true. Great teaser.
I love Molly Ringwald, she's so fabulous!
Cool teaser! And really sweet layout and header! Love it!
I have wanted to read this one for quite awhile. Great teaser!
i LOVE this!! I'm going to check out this book.
As a girl on the cusp of adulthood, I shall strive to observe the truth in this... Nice teaser! :DMine is from Nightseer, a 1992 paranormal read. Happy Tuesday! Miranda
LOL - I love that teaser! You can see mine here.
Gina Hott: LOL Agreed! :)Dazzling: :)Tipsy: Agreed! Did you see her site? She's rocking it! :)Darlyn: Thanks :)Teresa: Me too! I spotted it at Target ages ago and decided it was time to bite the bullet and buy it :)Carrie Hammock: Yay :)SVZ: Well said! *high five* :)Darlene: Thanks! I'm on my way now :)
awesome teaser! and as someone who is (shh - it's a secret!) 9 years into her 30s; i can attest - it is all about "do i like them"! how funny!!! (but there is still a bit of the "do they like me" mixed in there!)
First of all, look at your new design, it's GORGEOUS! Love the lace along the sides and the little banner at the top, too cute:)And what a true teaser, it very much made me smile because that's pretty much how I think now;)
I completely worshiped Molly Ringwald when I was growing up. I wanted to be her so bad and even dyed my hair read. :DI love the cover for her book. I need to get my hands on it for sure!Thanks for sharing the teaser. I'm glad to know this book is out there.
Very true wisdom in your teaser.Our teasers are here: Quirky Girls Read
So true! These days, it's so much easier to be myself without feeling the need to justify my life.
Great tease, Juju! Funny and yet perhaps more truth than we really know. I remember seeing this one when it first came out. Can't wait to see what you think of it. Thanks for sharing! Happy reading... ^_^
Ooh great quote!
That is really true. Great teaser! Here's my teaser:http://thebucketlist-gn.blogspot.com/2011/03/teaser-tuesday-pegasus.htmlHappy reading!
That's so true, it's actually scary. But isn't funny how I didn't think about it until I read this?PaulaSHxwww.paulashx-bookreviews.com
Sometimes when you go back to a school reunion, you have to check your luggage and make sure you don't pack your former insecurities. If there still isn't anything in common, it's okay.
haha- I love that teaser....so true!
I wonder if that's why I'm better friends with people online than in real life? I know, terribly sad, but true. This looks like such a good book, and I'd never even heard of it! You always find the best books! Love it! :o)
A perfect way to sum it up, though I'd never thought of it that way, it still rings so true!
Ha, awesome teaser, Juju! :)
Stacy: I have a smidge of that too. It's my younger inner me *wink wink* I'm 5 years into my 30s this August.

YA Book Queen: Thanks :)
Haha great teaser! I think that I might be 30+ in spirit, because I've been doing a lot of the thinking in the latter part of the teaser. Also, love the new header!!
Great teaser, Juju, and so true! By the way, your new blog layout is fabulous! I love the color and the borders and the font! So pretty =D.
Lizzy: :) Right on! And thanks doll :)Bere: Thank you sweetie!
I never knew about this book! I recently discovered 80s teen movies and I love Molly Ringwald.
How true, that's a great teaser!! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my TT today.
Definitely true as a teenager! I love Molly Ringwald, I had no idea she had a book out. She looks absolutely gorgeous on the cover. Seeing this makes me want to watch her movies again, haha. Wonderful teaser choice!
Good teaser! I'm in my early 30s but I still think "Do they like me?" more than "Do I like them?". I hope that changes soon!
So true! I think I'm in that transition time, between wanting people to like me and being mature enough to consider whether I like them. Love Molly Ringwald!
That simply is a wonderful cover and that is a, Mad Scientist confirmed theory. LOL!Great Teaser!Mad Scientist http://madsteampunkery.blogspot.com
So very true!! And being well over thirty myself I can remember cleary Molly in the Breakfast Club movie - I loved that movie. Thanks for sharing this wonderful, nostalgia inducing, teaser :)
Oh so true!Molly Ringwald was an inspiration to me in my late teens. I worried far too much what others thought of me.carol
I LOVE that quote! And although, I'm still a few years shy of 30, I totally agree with both perspectives, lol!
Misha: Oooo 80s teen movies ROCK! What a lovely thing to discover anew.Janet Ruth: :)Anna: Agreed! I love the dress and her skin looks fab :) Makes me want to watch The Breakfast Club. Christina T: It will ;)Meredith: *high five* It's better that way ;)Mad: ;) You're so cute!Mel: OMG I was just saying I love that movie! :)Dizzy C: I feel ya! :) So did I.Aths: :)
Ahhh the quote completely rings true. Great pick hun :)
that makes me laugh--just because it is true.
Very true! Nice teaser.
So very true!
Such wise words from her.
HiyaI emailed my mailing address to you at your gmail. Thanks again, Catherine
i love watching her movies! especially sixteen candles. awesome looking book!
Blueice, Kaye, Andrea, Freda, & Jenny N: Thanks gals :)Catherine: Cool beans. Just emailed you :)Chelley: Oooo me too! :)
Definitely true! Some of my favorites 80s movies are: The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles and Pretty in Pink. Andrew McCarthy has had a role on White Collar (USA) as a bad guy. Every time I see him I think of Blaine. Heck, every time I see Jon Cryer I think...Duckie! LOL I know Ringwald is on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, but do you remember that show she was on briefly called Townies? Great book cover!
Julie: OMG me too! LOL I just saw a commercial with him in it and thought the same thing! Remember that romantic scene were they steal a kiss in the alley? *le sigh* Jon Cryer will always be Duckie to me :) Thanks for the lovely walk down memory lane. Now I'm suddenly craving The Pick-Up Artist ;)
Love the teaser because it is so true. I'm not 30 yet but I already see the change in me. Thanks for sharing.
Oh Molly, you clever thing.BTW< I LOVE your new look. Where have I been? The days just go by too fast, i can't keep up in blog land. :)
Excellent teaser! I hope you're enjoying the rest of the book.
OMG, I WANT this!!!!!!!!!!
And beyond 30, it becomes: "Do I really care?" ...
This cover is sooooooo pretty looking! :)
LOL! This is so true! What a fantastic teaser :)
Alexis: Amazing right? :)Michelle: Ahhh thanks :) JessicaBookLover: Totally am :) Vamp: Yah! So hope you grab it. :)Cherry: LOL Love it! Bravo to that addition!Jacinda: It sure is :) I want her dress.Christie: Thanks :)
molly is a fave from the 80s, no doubt. pretty in pink is the most memorable role of hers for me. the book sounds like a cute one and i wonder if she speaks of her time in france.
VV: While she doesn't directly discuss it, she does mention it from time to time and I believe it really does influence her style :)
lol I'm not 30 yet But i find myself asking the same Q. <3 Molly is fave actor eva! 16 candles, Breakfast club, PNP. love her
Now I want to see Pretty and Pink again. I so wanted her prom dress. I forgot about The Pick-Up Artist! Love Robert Downey, Jr.
Faye: :) Right on! And major kudos for being a fan of the old flicks! I LOVE them too! I have had a seriously yearning to rewatch the Breakfast Club :) Julie: Oh my gosh, me too! *high five* I like him now, but I LOVE 80s Robert Downey Jr. ;) He was so sweet, mischievous, and doe-eyed :)
