RTW- Best book of July

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 Topic is: What was the best book you read in July?
This is so easy. I finally read The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The Night Circus

I love the world that is created in this book. This book appealed to the night owl in me with the midnight dinners and a circus that performs only at night. 

Books with a theatrical element always work well for me because they are set in a world I relate to very well working in theater. I was hooked in the first chapter and then when a character walked by dressers and stagehands(my people) on their way backstage I knew that I was going to love this book.

July has been so busy. I've been working on Roman Holiday which is a big show with lots of people in it. I've been writing, working on a draft of my wip and a PB idea for the 12X12in12 Challenge and an personal essay.

What was your favorite book of July? What projects did you tackle in July?

An excellent and very deserving choice, Carrie! I enjoyed this book more than I expected to. Partly, I think, because I was dreading it was going to be all about a traditional circus... And it was not, and so much more. :)

I haven't heard of this one!

I finished Summer at Forsaken Lake--a great summer MG read.
