Today's Question --> We’re already ¼ through 2014! What’s the best book you’ve read so far this year?
Tracey - THESE BROKEN STARS by Meagan Spooner and Amie Kaufman is one of the first books I read in 2014 and so far it’s still my favorite. I can imagine it’ll still be in the top five at the end of the year, too.
Matthew - I would say GRASSHOPPER JUNGLE, but I technically read that for the fist time a few years ago, so I'll say ELEANOR & PARK by Rainbow Rowell.
Leigh - MINE! Hahahaha -- kidding. I need a good book rec -- comments section is fine! I've read several books this year, but they've all just swam by in my head and nothing's really stood out. Halp!
Sarah - Man, I've read a lot of great books so far this year. But I will have to say that Anne Ursu's THE REAL BOY is topping my list. Yes it's MG, but man, if I ever write a MG fantasy, I want it to be like that. But for YA, I think so far it's a tie between Andrew Smith's GRASSHOPPER JUNGLE and A.S. King's REALITY BOY.
Jaime - So tough! I’ve read some pretty fantastic books so far this year. It’s going to have to be a four-way tie between INTO THE STILL BLUE by Veronica Rossi , CROWN OF EMBERS + THE BITTER KINGDOM by Rae Carson , and CRESS by Marissa Meyer)
Alison - WINGER by Andrew Smith. I’m always down for an awesome boy book and this one was AMAZING.
Katy – I’m with Trace – THESE BROKEN STARS totally blew my mind. Also, I just finished Morgan Matson’s AMY & ROGER’S EPIC DETOUR and absolutely loved it. Can’t believe it took me so long to pick up. Total Katy Book. :-)
Your turn! What’s the best book you’ve read so far this year?
