Road Trip Wednesday

This week on the YAHighway, another episode of best book of the month!


What's the best book you read in November?

For me, if you only count new books that I read (which were few, admittedly) I'd say Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg.

You can see my recommendation here.

What's the best book you read this month, lovelies?  I'm looking to expand that TBR pile that's getting monstrously out of control.  ;)

While we're at it, I thought I should let you know... I'm taking the rest of the week off from the blog.  *gasp of horror*  I know!  How dare I?  The nerve!

Seriously though, I hope you all have a happy and safe Thanksgiving.

On Monday I promise to have a super hilarious post about my adventure to the premier of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  You don't want to miss this, trust me.

And if anybody has a suggestion for a good book for a 16yo boy, let me know. (For my brother for Christmas) lol  I'm stumped.  He has read all the Harry Potters and the Percy Jackson series.

Enjoy your holiday!! Oh, and maybe your brother would enjoy something by James Patterson. I hear a lot of my teenaged male students talking about him. :)

I recently loved the mysterious benedict society. It's pitched a little younger, but it is a book that a MG or YA or adult would all enjoy and get totally different things out of. Might work for a 16yo.

Have a great Thanksgiving!!

Also-- you are the alternate winner for one of the small prizes in my contest-- one winner I have no way of getting in touch with (even through the blogger profile)-- so if she hasn't emailed me by next week I'll let you know.

Rick Riordan has another series about the Egyptian gods and goddesses- maybe your brother will like that? Have a good Thanksgiving!!

Thanks, guys! I'll look into all of those. :)

It's looking like nobody has read a whole lot this month, maybe KO is the exception. Maybe we read less when it's cold?

Enjoy the rest of your week off!

I read Writing Down The Bones years ago...before I wrote my first book even. It is a good one. Very practical.

Hadn't heard of that one!
