Monday Memories - The Girls

Happy Memorial Day, everyone. I hope you find much to enjoy during this holiday!


Welcome to my meme, Monday Memories, where I feature favorite books we've loved from the past. You can link to an old review, or write something new about a beloved book from your past. Really, what's important is not the book, but why it is memorable to you. So, have fun reminiscing, and leave a comment below, so we can all enjoy your memories.


The Girls by Lori Lansens was published in 2006, and I read it shortly after its publication. I was fascinated by this book because it was about conjoined twins and gave such a unique perspective about this condition. There are so many issues with being attached to another person that one doesn't consider. These women were adults with jobs and relationships. It may seem like this is really a sad book, but it is really upbeat.

I still think about this book a lot after so many years. I've never re-read it, but it is a book that I would consider re-reading. Although, I do remember a lot of the details -- as I said, it left a huge impression. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in these two women's unique struggles and triumphs.

Share one of your cherished book memories!

  1. I remember not enjoying this one. I read my review again and said the authors writing was lyrical and I would try another work by her, so I must do that.

    My review if interested.

  2. I just recently read this book and I loved it! I think what I will remember most about this book is the way the two girls had completely opposite views on what happened in their lives :)

Thanks for visiting! I LOVE comments! I've received several awards and because of the time involved, I now must make this an award free blog.
