RTW: Best Book of October
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. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.
This week’s topic:
What was the best book you read in October?
I just checked Goodreads and I’m shocked to see that I read 11 books in October! How am I’m going to decide between 11 books?
Just to make this fun, let’s break it down a bit.
– 6 were NA contemp romance
– 1 was NA Urban Fantasy
– 1 was craft
– 1 was YA contemp
– 2 was YA fantasy
It is a hard choice, my friends, I liked or loved all the books I read this month. I could choose 2 or 3 books instead of one, but then it’ll be worse, because I’ll want to choose all 11!
So, here it is, without further ado, my favorite of the month:
Following the unexpected death of her father, 18-year-old Layken is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she’s losing hope.
Enter Will Cooper: The attractive, 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for slam poetry and a unique sense of humor. Within days of their introduction, Will and Layken form an intense emotional connection, leaving Layken with a renewed sense of hope.
Not long after an intense, heart-stopping first date, they are slammed to the core when a shocking revelation forces their new relationship to a sudden halt. Daily interactions become impossibly painful as they struggle to find a balance between the feelings that pull them together, and the secret that keeps them apart.
Crazy-good! Now, go read it!
How about you? What was the best book you read in October?
