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.
This week's question
What was the best book you read in January?
For me the best book was Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
I have to confess this book and series kind of surprised me. I didn't think I was going to be interested in a book about wolves but this book sucked me. Actually it wasn't the wolves that got me into this book, it was Mercy Falls being in Minnesota that sucked me in. This series surprised me because I liked the second book even better than the first. I like that Grace and Sam's story gets more complex in this book as Sam finds himself human but Grace finds herself feeling more like a wolf. The addition of Cole and Isabelle's povs also sucked me in.
Other January books
My goal in January was to read some of the books I had on my Kindle. I'm not sure if other people who own readers find themselves buying ebooks when they are at a lower price. I do. I decided I needed to read some of these books before I could buy some of the regularly priced ebooks on my list ($9.99)
A Scary Good Book by Anita Laydon Miller- Loved this great mystery. Fans of Nancy Drew and other mystery books will love Hannah Stone and how her love of reading lands her in the middle of solving a mystery.
The Absolute Value of -1 by Steve Brezenoff- I really like Brooklyn Burning so when I saw this book on sale on amazon I bought it. I liked the povs of the three characters and how they see this one event. Even though the characters appear to be best friends they actually know very little about each others lives.
Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have) by Sarah Mlynowski- I snagged this book for 99 cents from the Epic Reads, Epic Deals sale. This book was fun and reminded me of when I had my first apartment with my best friend after college.
What was your favorite book of January?
