July Reads

Every Wednesday, YA Highway asks their readership a simple question to answer on your blog. Once you answer, you your link in the comments for other readers to hop on board. This is Road Trip Wednesday.

Today's question: What's the best book you've read this month?

Since FALLING TO NORMAL is off with my very trusted beta alpha, I definitely had time to read this month. A lot more than, say, the past 11 months. In fact, I read 3 more books this month than last. Out of them all, the two new ones that stood out the most are Dairy Queen by Catherine Gilbert Murdock and Tommyland by Tommy Lee & Anthony Bozza.

Dairy Queen
What I Liked About It: What wasn't there to like? DJ's voice is extremely strong and likeable. The story arcs are seemless. I struggled with putting the book down and devoured it in a day. The sport element is there, but it's not all about football. I can't wait to read the sequel.

Tommyland
What I Liked About It: That the man is some kind of crazy genius. To learn more about my thoughts on it, you can read yesterday's post or my Goodreads review.

  2. I thought Dairy Queen was a trilogy? That's what the author said at her Key Note speech
