Lurkdom, you're officially reading post 500! *throws confetti and glitter* Because of this and the fact that math has broken my brain*, today's post will be short.
I read some fantastically awesome published books this summer**. After having such a reading slump at the start of the year, it's amazing to see how my reading picked up.
Pam raves about Ellen Hopkins and after her and a few other people talked it up enough, I caved. Crank is cleverly written and covers a serious issue without being preachy. It's understandable why it's been banned*** in places, but you can't discount that Hopkins knows what she's doing. You can read my mini review here.
What was the best thing you read this summer? Head over to Paper Hangover and play along!
* Thank you, day job.
** I also beta read some awesome books, but that's an entirely different story.
*** Here at The Pie we believe that censorship is ridiculous. Being informed is better than being ignorant.
