Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors and followers post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on their blogs. You can hop from destination to destination through the YA Highway site and get everybody's unique take on the topic.
This week's topic: What was the best book you read in February?
My task is made easier this time around by the puny number of books I read this month. For good reason, though--I was reading some books on writing craft and working on outlining my WIP, Crow's Rest. So the best book I read was the fourth in the Flavia De Luce series:
If you haven't read the series, how could you resist this description from the Flavia website:
"Flavia de Luce has a passion for poisons.
Picture an ancient country house somewhere in England. The year is 1950.
Picture a girl who lives there with her most eccentric family. Her name is Flavia de Luce--and she's almost eleven.
Picture a long-abandoned Victorian chemistry lab; no one ever goes there but Flavia.
Put them all together and you'll have a deliciously original approach to detective fiction."
How could that not be intriguing???
And here's a trailer for all four books:
Happy reading, and I'll see you all on the road!
