RTW - Best Book of August

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.

This Week's Topic: 
What was the best book you read in August?
 
No contest. Hands down. I've been waiting to write this post since I finished it on the 18th. 

I tend to be cautious about books when I'm hearing nothing but good things about them. This was true of Code Name Verity but it had an incredibly awesome premise so I decided to pick it up anyway. One of the best books I have ever read. This book deserves all the praise and more. It's beautiful with fantastic plot twists and lifelike characters. It broke my heart and shattered my soul. I actually brought my copy up to college with me even though I'd already finished it because I couldn't think of leaving it behind. 

If you haven't read it yet, I can't recommend it highly enough.

Ooh I have heard a lot about this.... I think i'll need to add it to my list, especially if it's as good as you say!

I read this earlier in the summer. I also loved it, but it was a challenge to get through. The narrative is strange, and at times difficult to follow. However, I understand this was done with a purpose, so overall it works. I borrowed this from the library, but I'd actually like to buy it and read through it again which I NEVER do. :)

This one is already on my TBR list (quite near the top actually), so I should really get my hands on it already! Thanks for the recommendation. :)

I have Code Name Verity and was having a hard time getting into it. I will have to try again, thanks to your review, it really encourages me. :)
