Road Trip Wednesday #27: Best Book of the Month

Welcome to our 27th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link in the comments -- or since this week's topic is a short one, you can include your answer in the comments.

This week's topic:
What's the best book you've read this month?

Kate: Please, please, please, please, please turn this book into a movie so we can see "Tiny Dancer" on stage . . .

Amanda: Made my heart swell up, tore it out, then did some of those crazy Lord of the Dance steps all over it . . .

Lee: It was amazing. It was dark. It was real . . .

Kaitlin: Everyone should read it ASAP . . .

Kirsten: The dog is one of the best characters I have ever read...

Kristin: Hard-hitting and unapologetic and emotional and honest...

Next week's question:
What photos inspire your books?

Amanda Hannah

Amanda grew up on a big farm in a small town with one stoplight, one school, and a handful of imaginary friends.She would’ve gone to college forever, but eight years and five majors tested her advisor’s patience. So she moved to Germany to explore creepy castles before landing in Spain where she’s perfecting her Flamenco.

  1. The best book I read this month would have to be Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver :)

  2. Love this, my TBR list is going to be impossibly long now. :)

    Here's my answer:

  3. What a terrible time to ask this question. I so read 4 books on my recent flight!

    I guess the one I enjoyed the most was The Lightning Thief! Which proves it, I'm officially 12!

    PS. Check out my KitKat contest.

  4. I played along!

  5. Awesome question! Glad to have RTW back on the Highway!

    p.s. my word verification was "damizint." wth??

  7. Love this topic- excited to see others. Check out mine!

  8. I've only read 2 books this month 0 The Opposite of Me by debut novelist Sarah Pekkanen and Deathly Hallows by JKR. And while Pekkanen's book is excellent, JKR won out... :-)

  9. Oops, I typed an 0 instead of a -! LOL

  17. The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta. It's amazing and the characterization is perfection.

  18. I read, Minion by L.A. Banks. It was a different spin on vampires and now I'm so hooked I gotta read the next book, Awakening.

  19. Bleeding Violet was crazy, and yet awesome at the same time. Very edgy YA and I looooved it. :D
