Today's question:

What's the best book you've read in the past month--and why'd you love it, in 140 characters or less? (Bonus points if you tweet your answers with a #yaconfidential hashtag!)

Our answers:

Copil: The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett 
Uses evocative, smart language to create concepts that mess with your mindscape. He only does 2 things well: everything & everything else.

Sara: The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff
Dark and twisty in both plot and prose. A really unique take on angels and demons. Brenna's books = things I'll buy as SOON as they're out.

Alexandra: Dearly Departed by Lia Habel
I don't need 140 characters, I can do it in one word: ZOMBIES.

Cambria: Serial (Uncut) by Jack Kilborn (J.A. Konrath IRL) & Blake Crouch
NOT YA, NOT a cupcake in sight & NOT what you want to read if you're going hitchhiking. Graphic, gory, squirmy. I loved it! (Picture books a definite palate cleanser afterward.)

Alison: The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger
Why? LOL funny, it is. Depicts perfectly that awkward stage called middle school, it does. Provided super fast, light-hearted read, it did. And it's YODA. Enough said.

Cristin: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
After telling my dad all the reasons he should read The Hunger Games, I HAD to reread it myself. Still as unputdownable four reads later.

Karen: String Bridge by Jessica Bell
Lyrically beautiful but also tugs at the heartstrings.

Your turn!!

And no cheating past 140 characters. Unlike some of the operatives.
