RTW- Best book of February



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.


What was the best book you read in February?


This is a tough one to answer because I read so many amazing books this month.
My reading list for this month includes The Fault in Our Stars, The Mostly True Story of Jack, The Scorpio Races and Divergent. So yeah, how do I pick from those.




I loved The Scorpio Races.  The writing and the story was beautiful.  I loved the characters and I seriously wanted to move to the island of Thisby when I was finished with this book. 


The Scorpio Races




I won Divergent from Colin D. Smith. This was another one of those books that totally sucked me in.  Maybe it is because I went to Chicago last summer to watch the Minnesota Twins play. Of course I did all the touristy things like Navy Pier (my friend works at a theater there) and the John Hancock building. (The lounge offers amazing views for the price of a $15 cocktail) Reading a story set in a future Chicago was really fun.
The story was exciting and compelling and I couldn't put this book down.  Can't wait until May when Insurgent comes out.


Divergent (Divergent, #1)

I loved both of these books! I haven't done as much reading this month as I normally do, but I liked the middle grade novel Liesl & Po.

I loved both of those books too!

Thanks for the shout-out, Carrie! I'm glad (not surprised) you enjoyed DIVERGENT. Welcome to the Cant'-Wait-For-May crowd! :) THE SCORPIO RACES is on my TBR list.

Loved, loved, LOVED Divergent. I already preordered book 2.

Yay! Another Scorpio Races fan! I feel like it's a bit more polarizing than a lot of other books I've loved so I get pumped when I see other people like it as much as I do.

I haven't read as much this month, but I'll be adding those to my list.

I LOVED both of those books. I fell in love with the characters and the sea and the horses in THE SCORPIO RACES and DIVERGENT was just wonderful!
Great choices :D

I read Divergent last week and couldn't put it down. It is a part of my crazed dystopian phase, I suppose. After Hunger Games I just had to have more of the genre. Now I am on to Enclave. We shall see how much post-apocalyptic teen drama I can digest! So fun!
