RTW: Best March Book

I've been doing a lot of writing lately and not a lot of blogging, so I apologize you've gotten two RTW posts in a row!

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where the contributors over at YA Highway post a weekly writing- or reading-related question. Then readers answer it on their own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.





This week's question: What was the best book you read in March?


First, let me say that I lied in February. I had TORN at the top of my TBR list. But I let a friend borrow it, so I spent all of my March reading on my Kindle. Even so I'm a little torn (cue laughter at my clever pun) for this month's book.

It's between CINDER and INCARNATE (I promise promise promise I'll have a review up by Friday for INCARNATE. I wanted to include my favorite sentences, and I never seem to blog when I have my Kindle around!). There's a brief summary for CINDER on my review, but here's the summary for INCARNATE:

Ana is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why...Ana travels to the city of Heart, but its citizens are suspicious and afraid of what her presence means. When dragons and sylph attack the city, is Ana to blame...Sam believes Ana’s new soul is good and worthwhile. When he stands up for her, their relationship blooms. But can he love someone who may live only once, and will Ana’s enemies—human and creature alike—let them be together? Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else’s life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?


If you haven't read these, you need to add them to your TBR list. If they're already on your TBR list, move them to the top!

  1. CINDER is on my TBR list. You really do need to get to TORN soon--it's a great book! :)

  2. Both of these have been on my TBR list for a while. CINDER, especially, looks really good.

    1. CINDER is beautiful. It's one of the best fairy tale based stories I've read.

  3. Both are already on my TBR list, but this just makes it all the more appealing to get around to them. I don't really have a true 'best read' for March because I spent a lot of it rereading The Hunger Games trilogy. Since I've already read it before, it doesn't feel like the right thing to label as best read. I did just finish Stephen King's On Writing, though, and it was pretty darn good and also pretty darn helpful. I guess that counts then :D
