I don't usually do book reviews, but I will occasionally recommend books as part of the YAHighway Road Trip Wednesdays that round up the best books of the month. But rather than wait for the next one, I've had the opportunity over the last week to catch up on my TBR list, and to discover some new favorites. So here's what I've been reading and liking lately:
I've been on a bit of a Holly Black binge, mainly because I stumbled across White Cat at the library and liked it so much that I hunted down some more of her titles(Tithe and Valiant are still in the TBR pile), including its sequel Red Glove. I loved the characters and alternate world she created for these two; a good read for boys, too.
The next book is Enchanted Ivy by Sarah Beth Durst, and I stumbled on this video so why not let her tell you about it?
And lastly, I mowed through Zombies vs. Unicorns in a day. And, strangely, it took another week before I had a zombie-filled nightmare. Mmm, that sounds like a delicious snack cake: Zombie-Filled Nightmare! Now with spongey cake! Pardon me, you have some raspberry filling around your mouth . . .
