Road Trip Wednesday: The Best Book of September Is...

*In case you missed it, I made it to 100 followers over the weekend! I'm running a giveaway with some really awesome prizes, including a character sketch, so check it out! You have until tomorrow at 11:59 pm Pacific Time to enter. :)*

It's Wednesday, my favorite day of the week! That's partly because the work week is halfway over, but also because I get to talk about book-related stuff without actually having to think of a topic. :P Road Trip Wednesday is a blog carnival hosted by YA Highway (which is a great blog, if you haven't checked it out yet).

Today's question: What was the best book you read in September?

This is a pretty easy question, really. I'm nearly finished (thanks to a couple hours of reading time yesterday morning), but it's by far the best read of September.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone

I don't want to tell you guys too much about this book, because I want you to go into it without any pre-conceived notions. But seriously, it is glorious! Laini Taylor is a master weaver of words, and her prose is so delicious that I recommend savoring rather than devouring. I'm probably going to need to reread next month, just so I can enjoy it all over again. :P

Just another reminder, for those of you who missed the notification at the top (I'm onto you, you guys who see announcements and skip over them for the meat of the post :P): I'm running a giveaway to celebrate collecting reaching 100 followers. My fiance has graciously agreed to do a sketch of one winner's MC, and there are two books to give to two other winners. You have until tomorrow at 11:59 pm Pacific Time to enter, and the link to the contest post is at the top of this one. Go enter! You know you want to... :D



  1. Can't wait to read this one! Besides the obviously awesome cover, it's getting a lot of love pretty well everywhere. Will check it out for sure.

  2. Just the cover is enough to make me want to read this book. :)

  3. I have heard such great things about this book. I need to get on that!

  4. Just bought it yesterday and it comes tomorrow, but I managed to include it in my preview of best books of October--I know I will like it that much!

  5. Best book for me was Monstrumologist #2, The Curse of the Wendigo! Awesome stuff.

  6. I am fully expecting Daughter of Smoke and Bone to be my best read in October. Lucky you grabbing and reading it today - and I'm glad to hear it's living up to its advance reputation.


Now that you took the time to read my message, let's see what you have to say! Unless it's mean...then you can just keep it to yourself. :)
