Road Trip Wednesday #65: Groundhog Day

Welcome to our 65th Road Trip Wednesday!

Photobucket 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:
Happy Groundhog Day! If the groundhog sees his shadow, we get six more weeks of winter (and we're hoping he doesn't, since 2/3 of the US is covered in blizzard right now).

 In the movie "Groundhog Day," Bill Murray has to relive the same day over and over. What books would you pick to read over and over for the rest of your life?
 

Kate: needs to step away from the Photoshop.

Leila: Because who eats chocolate just once?

Kirsten: “I've never actually seen the movie, because it sounds SO FRUSTRATING..."




Road Trip Song of the Week:
On and On" by Erykah Badu

Next week’s topic:
something Valentine-y. probably.

  14. I'm just going to leave my response here... but I would absolutely read the Time Quartet by Madeleine L'Engle over and over, especially A Wrinkle in Time. Also To Kill a Mockingbird, and I'm loving Leslie Marmon Silko's right now and think I'd be able to read it numerous times and get something new out of it each time.

  16. Northern Lights by Philip Pullman. I read it every year and always find something new ^_^

    I could also re-read Charlie Higson's Young Bond series too. I loooooooooove those books so much ^_^ If you want a great action series set in a familiar world, check this series out.
