Best read in February! YA Highway Road Trip Wednesday!
This isn’t a tough answer: THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. But I already reviewed the crap out of TFIOS, complete with crazy spoilers, and I don’t really have much else to say about it–other than, it was as good as everyone says it is. Which is a rare feat.
Because I hate to keep recommending the same books over and over, I want to note a couple more books that I read and LOVED this month! SHATTER ME by Tahereh Mafi was probably my second favorite YA read. I really enjoyed the unique, lyrical style of writing, and you really get a sense that Juliette is kind of crazy-pants. I can’t wait for the sequel, when we will surely get a more nuanced portrait of Warner, who I suspect is a lot more deeply layered than he appears in this first book.
Also, in the non-YA world, I read MR. FUNNY PANTS by Michael Showalter, and it had me cracking up the entire time. Granted, I’ve always been a huge fan of Showalter’s comedic endeavors, but I enjoyed getting more insight into his life. I have a thing for biographies, because I love seeing behind-the-scenes in peoples’ real lives. Perhaps that makes me a bit voyeuristic, but I’m OK with that.
