Road Trip Wednesday is a weekly blog carnival hosted by YA Highway. This week's topic is: What's the best book you read in August?
|Reading Love in the Time |
of Cholera on Fire Island
August was made for reading. And I had a really good reading month, guys:
And Then Things Fall Apart Arlaina Tibensky
Armageddon in Retrospect Kurt Vonnegut
Stiltsville Susanna Daniel
Hector and the Search for Happiness Francois Lelord
Someone Like You Sarah Dessen
Love in the Time of Cholera Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Mostly Good Girls Leila Sales
Libba Bray's Beauty Queens (what I'm reading right now)
Weeks after I finished reading the books, Keek's and Frances's voices (protagonists of And Then Things Fall Apart and Stiltsville, respectively) are still in my head. I miss them. I want to read some more of Keek's poetry and I would like, sofa king much, for an update on her life (including her current nail polish choices). I want Frances to tell me more about the stilt house, about how she prepared for Hurricane Andrew (okay, I wanted to know that last weekend when Irene was bearing down), and let me know how's she's been doing since the book ended. I care about them both, even though they're fictional.
I love it when books make me care for made-up people like they're my good friends. Those are always the best books.
What about you: what was your best book of August?
