Road Trip Wednesday #61: 2010 in Books

Welcome to our 61st 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, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This Week's Topic:

5 Best Books of 2010
Sum Up Your 2010 in a Book Title

Michelle: Obsessed. I am obsessed with this man and his poetry...

Amanda: With a little twist . . .

Kaitlin: What is better than a book no one can stop talking about?

Kate: I am so on top of things! [she posts 4 hours late.] 

Road Trip Song of the Week:

Next Week's Topic:
What's your favorite line of your WIP (or of a recently read book, if you're not writing anything)?

  13. I'm going to take option two and go with this novel title to sum up my 2010:

    I chose this, because I think I have honestly, and finally, written a novel for National Novel Writing Month ( that will be publishable once I get it edited.

  14. I would say Boneshaker by Cherie Priest had to be one of my favorites this past year. I am now reading her Dreadnought and looking forward to another Steampunkin' good time.
