Yes, I'm doing a Road Trip Wednesday*. Why? Because the question is so gosh darn easy to answer (I usually skip them because I hate coming up with entertaining quips and all). Hehe.. Anway today's question:

What is the best book  you've read in August?

Answer: The Chosen One by Carol Williams. It's about a girl who lives in a polygamist community and how she reacts to her arranged marriage. This book was unbelievable. It curled my stomach and made me ache inside. I read it in one sitting, and quite literally couldn't stop for a breath. Truly tension-filled. There are number of other books that I really loved this month, including Split by Swati Avasthi and Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley. I'll be talking more about my books of August tomorrow - provided I can make myself do another post tonight. :)

So what about you? What's the best book you've read this month?

*Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

You were a latecomer today, almost missed you! That sounds like an intriguing premise. Especially because books like that could be historical, dystopian, present-day, you name it.

Ooo, love the sound of this! Thank you for adding to my list, and yes, do pick up Imaginary Girls!

THE CHOSEN ONE is on my TBR list...maybe I should be moving it up closer to the top, huh? Also, GRAFFITI MOON is on it too. I am just so far behind, but it seems like for every one book I get read six more magically appear on my list.

Sounds awesome! Adding it to the TBR

That book sounds intriguing, and I love the vibe of the cover! Adding to my TBR mound.
