RTW: Best book of May

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 topic: What was the best book you read in May?

I bet you can't guess. Oh wait, if I actually made that bet, I'd lose. So no betting, only book loving. As I mentioned here, here, and here--I thoroughly enjoyed INSURGENT by Veronica Roth. Ha, thoroughly enjoyed. That sounds so tame. Let me try again: ZOMG INSURGENT WAS AMAZING AHHHH!

Here's my review.

I also started the DELIRIUM series by Lauren Oliver--reading both DELIRIUM and PANDEMONIUM. I really enjoyed these books and strongly recommend them if you haven't read them. I'll have reviews up at some point in June.



And since we're on the topic of books, I cannot wait for my pre-ordered, signed copy of SHADOW AND BONE by Leigh Bardugo to come in the mail. Can. Not. Wait.



What about you? What was your favorite book? What are you looking forward to this month?

  2. LOVED Delirium - Pandemonium's on the top of my TBR pile. And Shadow and Bone looks great. What a cover! Let me know how it is!

    1. I heard from a couple people who liked Delirium better than Pandemonium, but I enjoyed the sequel much more.

  3. That cover for Shadow and Bone looks awesome. I think the best book I read last month was "Ready Player One" by Ernest Cline.

  4. I'm trying to read PANDEMONIUM right now, but am having a tough time since it's been so long since I've read DELIRIUM! I've forgotten so much from the first book (other than I remember that I did enjoy it!), that it's not making much sense...hence, I think I'll need to re-read the first book again, to give this one a fair chance!

    My favorite reads for the month of May were the three titles from the GRACELING series (Kristin Cashore). I'm so glad it took me awhile to get to these books, as I was able to read them back-to-back - and I will say, I absolutely LOVED them! Great reads to add to your TBR list, if you haven't done so already!

    Next up: currently reading UNRAVELING by Elizabeth Norris. I've also got Cassandra Clare's CITY OF LOST SOULS waiting on my nightstand...and CINDER (Marissa Meyer) and UNDER THE NEVER SKY (Veronica Rossi) on their way in the mail - can't wait!

    And thanks for the reco on SHADOW AND BONE! This one looks great - already added to my TBR list!

    1. I need to read the GRACELING series. Maybe those will be my main June reads--other of course than SHADOW AND BONE!

      How are you liking UNRAVELING? CINDER is absolutely fabulous--it's probably still one of my favorites for the year.

  6. I started Delirium awhile back but didn't get too far and I have no idea why, really. It's a book I really wanted to like - I think I'll just have to give it another try soon ;)

    1. If anything, give it another try for PANDEMONIUM. The sequel is worth it.

  7. I read Delirium this month, too, and am on the library waiting list for Pandemonium. Can't wait!

  8. I've walked past Delerium a few times and I'm not sure why. Will have to add it to the TBR pile!!

  9. I loved both DELIRIUM and PANDEMONIUM, though perhaps I favored PANDEMONIUM a bit more. I enjoyed the romantic relationship in the second book more than the one in the first; it felt more intense and real to me. Can't wait to see what happens in the third book because that cliffhanger... Yikes!
