I Only Said Series - January 27th 2010, 05:04 PM

Okay so I just discovered these books in my school library. THey all start with "I only said" and each book covers a new adolescent issue. The one I read was "I only said it didn't hurt" and it's about self harm.

The REALLY COOL thing about these books is that each one not only gives you a story, but HELPS YOU DEAL WITH LIFE. Like at the beginning I was like "okay this is poorly written" and in the middle I was like, "this is kind of weird" and by the end I was liek "OMGSH MY LIFE MAKES SENSE". I literally went to bed last night with a stupid smile on my face because I was SO dumbfounded by how much my life all of a sudden makes sense. Seriously read them.

http://www.wighitapress.com/index.php <-- Brief synopsis on each book.

Not the best books ever quality wise and with writing skill....but my life makes sense for serious.

That is really cool. I am glad you found a book like that. I am going to check them out right now. Sometimes books that don't have the best writing or whatever still have a very good message and can be really helpful to a lot of people.

I am glad you posted this.

Edit: Just looked at those books and they look really interesting. I am hoping I will be able to read them one day. Looks like they cover a lot on the topic and really bring a lot of understanding.

Do you love books or are you having trouble finding books to read? Come check out my blog where I will discuss all things books:

They do. And I also felt a really strong attachment to the main therapist chickie in the book (Miss Tina ^^ ) and so I am glad to announce that Miss Tina seems to be in all of them
