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?
Laura Lamont's Life in Pictures
Liar & Spy
and now I'm starting on Beautiful Ruins.
I've already gushed about Between Shades of Gray, Prairie Evers, and Liar & Spy, so let me share what I liked about Laura Lamont's Life in Pictures:
--Door County, WI setting (I am such a sucker for any book set in my home state)
--Depression-era Hollywood glamour
--Complicated female protagonist
--Actors and filmmaking
--Veiled references to actual, famous actors and filmmakers of bygone years
--Epic-ness of Laura's story, in that it stretched from her idyllic WI girlhood all the way to her golden years
--Beautiful, simple prose
What have you been reading this month?
And speaking of reading on the beach, I'm going to spend this last weekend of summer hopefully doing that on Fire Island. To make sure I get all my work done (and my outline written) before the weekend, I'll be taking a mini-break from the blog until next Tuesday. Happy Labor Day!
