Road Trip Wednesday


It's Road Trip Wednesday on the YA Highway! This week's topic:

What was the best book you read in June?


I read several good books in June. Choices, choices. I suppose the best, best book I read was Looking for Alaska. Did you doubt it? I didn't think so. You can see my review HERE.

My reason for choosing it? I keep telling people about it, trying to convince them to read it. I even pointed it out to a teen in the bookstore the other day. I'm a shameless hand-seller.

What books do I get to add to my mile-high TBR list this week? What's the best book you read in June?

I knew it! I knew you were going to say LFA! Heehee, John Green Fangirls Unite!

I'm chomping at the bit to read Will Grayson, Will Grayson, but I've got 2 ARCs I need to read first. Must resist the fangirl urge! ;)

read several good books this month--have added LFA to my "to read" list, btw. I guess my favorite (or maybe the one I remember best) was Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Darkside...which I happened to review on my blog today! LOL~ ;D

I've had LFA on my to read list for over a year now. It's been moved to my "read this summer or die" list.

I really need to read this book before the entire rest of the world has done so...

I absolutely LOVE john green. So much that I want to kidnap him and write me books on demand.

But that would deny the rest of the world of his awesomess. Le sigh.

LFA is one of my favourite books!

John Green is pure AWESOMENESS...squared! :) I've read LFA and Paper Towns and WGWG and Katherines...and I have to say that LFA is probably my fave. I've read a ton of great YA this month but the best three would have to be THIRTEEN REASONS WHY by Jay Asher, WINTERGIRLS by Laurie Halse Anderson and LOVE YOU HATE YOU MISS YOU by Elizabeth Scott...so those are the ones I'd reccommend :)

Holly Dodson said...

Kaitlin, you really must.

I love all these recommendations! Many of them are already on my list...or sitting on my bedside table, waiting patiently for their turn. :)

Pam Harris said...

Love, love, LOVE this book! In fact, I want to go back and read it again...but I want to get through his other books first. :)

Shari Green said...

I loved Looking For Alaska! Must be about time for a re-read.... :)

Nomes said...

great great pick :)

I first read it by randomly picking it up from my library over two years ago - such an awesome surprise - love discovering books when theres no rave behind them (that I was aware fo) makes the whole thing even more awesome .
