RTW -- Best Book of December
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 is the best book you read in December?
So...I have a confession to make. I only read one book in December. In my defense, it was a large book and it was during finals week and then I spent the rest of the month working my way through A Clash of Kings which is an amazing book, but also very large.
However, that one book was definitely worthy of a 10 and so I don't feel guilty.
So, the best book I read in December was...
...The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan. It's the third book in his Heroes of Olympus series and well worth my wait to read it. I'll probably still be in shock over the ending in October when House of Hades comes out. My decision to read it during finals week was either my worst idea ever, or my best. It made a great motivational tool to study during the day, so I could spend my evenings reading. However, once I started reading I found it almost impossible to put it aside so I could get some sleep.
Great characters, great plot, and I'm dying for the next one! It was a great book to cap off my reading list for the year.
