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 September?
September wasn't a great month for new reading. Coughs and tummy bugs were rampant in our house. Sigh.
Stress and illness lead to comfort reading. A few of my old faves were devoured. You know those great books you can pick up anywhere if a kid or dog loses your place and read on because you know it so well?
I first read my best September book when I was about ten I think. And have re-read many times. It's a joke with hubby cos the night we met we got chatting and I accidentally told him the ending. But then I figured it didn't matter cos I'd never see him again anyway.
He still teases me about how I ruined the book for him.
Enough rambling... (Really, is there ever enough? *grin*) The best book i read in September was
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card.
I love it because it's a comfort read. I love it because it makes me cry. Most of all I love it because in Ender I have one of the characters who I have as a reader supported most strongly. I wanted Ender to succeed completely.
What about you? What was your best September book? Do you turn to a comfort read when life gets messy?
