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 March?
How is March almost over? 2012 is flying by. Add in the burst of early spring we had last week, and I'm seasonally confused.
Anyway, here's what I read this month:
The Thirteenth Tale: Contemporary Gothic meta-fiction for booklovers. I was surprised that I didn't love this one more, but it was still a fun, eerie read.
Hemlock: I've always loved werewolves, so of course I enjoyed this one. In particular, the richly drawn small-town setting is great.
Enchanted Ivy: A sweet YA urban fantasy with a collegiate spin. Don't tell anyone that I pretended the Princeton setting was actually NU while reading.
A Young Wife: Historical fiction set in the Netherlands, Argentina, and New York at the turn of the (twentieth) century. Anachronisms in the dialogue aside, the writing was strong and the characters/plot so compelling. I'm such a sucker for that time period.
The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society: An unexpected new favorite; I never knew how much I love epistolary novels until I read this one. It made me want to hop a plane to Guernsey and join the literary society. I will not be trying to recreate the potato peel pie, as I do not live in a world with butter rations. And I love butter.
Wanderlove: More on this on Friday, when I'll post as part of the YA Book Club!
Right now I'm reading The Art of Fielding. I was skeptical about this one, because it's a 500-page novel about baseball (and I never met a sport I didn't feel meh about). Surprisingly--or not, considering all of the rave reviews--I'm enjoying it very much.
