Best this month

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 your best book for June?

Where the #$%@ did June go? I think I must have blinked and missed it. Kid sickness and trying to do the 50kin30days we do here in Aussie through RWAus meant the month passed pretty quickly.

However i did sneak in some reading (or i might have exploded) and I had a favourite.

It was Starters by Lissa Price.

I've actually had this on my TBR since Mother's Day and have been holding off. I was writing in contemp land and didn't want to be thinking Dystopian. But as my reward for finishing my draft I was able to get stuck in.

And it was well worth the wait. I read it fast but it left me thinking - a great combo. And isn't the cover awesome?

What about you?


  1. I didn't read much this month. :( Working on a revision, starting a job... (excuses, excuses) So basically, I've just been putzing through re-reads of two of my favorites Lord of the Rings and The Three Musketeers.

    This sounds really, cool though. And yes, the cover is pretty nice!

    1. Sounds pretty hectic! Nice to go back to old faves!

  2. That is a great cover. "Survival is just the beginning." Good tag line. Okay, I'm intrigued to find out more. Your work is done, Beck! ;)

  3. Oooh, Starters! I remember hearing a lot about this before it came out but it had kind of dropped off my radar. I'll have to add it to the list!

  4. You are so right about June. Where did it go? I've heard lots of great things about Starters, so I will definately soon!

  5. Lissa donated a copy of Starters as part of the Pens for Paws Auction, and I wished I'd been able to read it then. Haven't gotten to it yet, though. Sigh. Too many good books!

    1. There are too many and RTW best books has a way of adding to the TBR pile!


i love comments. they make me happy.
