Q: What is the best book you've read in the last month? What is the worst book you've read in the last month?.
The best book that I read in the last month was probably Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick. Selznick is such a master story-teller and always original with his combination of illustrations and text. And because so much of the book is pictures, one could easily read in one sitting, but that doesn't make it any less potent. If you haven't read Wonderstruck yet you really need to, I promise it will be worth it!
I haven't read any bad books this month, but one that I didn't like as much as the others was probably Crossed, which I just finished on audiobook. I think the thing that bugs me the most about this series is the cookie cutter YA love triange. I am not a very love triangle -y person, I mean I have my exceptions *cough* Katniss-Gale-Peeta *cough* Tessa-Jem-Will *cough*, but I think that there are more ways to have your character have romantic tension without it be a triangle, you know what I mean?
