Road Trip Wednesday #85: Best Book of the Month

Welcome to our 85th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, 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 - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This Week's Topic:
(Back by popular demand!) What's the best book you've read this month?

Road Trip Song of the Week:
"June Hymn" by The Decemberists
Emilia Plater

Emilia is a YA author who avoids studying, food that isn't covered in cheese, and waking up before 10:30AM whenever possible. A bundle of confusions.

  2. I read Moonraker last week and loved that, but I just finished Patrick Ness' "Chaos Walking" trilogy and oh. WOW. It's been entirely too long since I read something that fantastic.

  18. This is perfect timing - I've been in a book funk this month and need some sure thing recommendations! So, I don't have a best book of the month post, but here's one with several of my recent favorites.

  21. I hope I didn't break the rules — I wrote a post about why I didn't finish a book this month. I spent my whole month trying to get through just one and failed miserably. (This from a reasonably fast reader!)
