Road Trip Highway is a weekly blog carnival organised by YA Highway.
This week’s topic: What’s the best book you’ve read this month?
I’m gonna be cheating. I can’t say one. August’s been more or less a good month and some of the books I’ve read this month have become my favourites ever.
Here’s the top three in no particular order:
Dreaming of Amelia (by Jaclyn Moriarty): Ghosts, secrets and Jaclyn Moriarty.Need I say more? You can read my review here (if you want more, ie.).
The Sky Always Hears Me And The Hills Don’t Mind(by Kirstin Cronn-Mills) : Morgan’s sharp, funny voice is a clear winner. Plus the Central Nebraska setting. To know more, again, read my review.
And this is the one, I haven’t reviewed yet, but ohmynchgdgcshiuchcdgcjiduweGOD The Sky Is Everywhere (by Jandy Nelson) is so damn stunning.
The writing is what wins here, hands down. Love triangles have been done to death, but it’s the way it’s been done that wins here. A picture of grief, mingled with the song of Lennie’s poems and the delight of love..I WANT TO EAT THIS NOVEL.
And it’s oh-so-gorgeous, it’s left me *speechless*
Jandy Nelson’s writing rings out with the passion and beauty of music. Wow.
Special Mention: I’m cheating here again since I haven’t finished it yet (I’m damn slow with ebooks. The fact that I’m sticking to it speaks tons), but Angela Morrison’s just released Unbroken Connection is beautiful, lyrical and gah, I’m just gonna go finish it now.
Back to you, have you read any of the above books? What’s been your fave August read?
