Booking Through Thursday asks:
What’s the best book you’ve read recently?
(Tell me you didn’t see this one coming?)
It's been a while since I read a book that I really enjoyed. Last November, I read Laura Whitcomb's A Certain Slant of Light. I'd just come from reading Charles de Lint's Dingo (I usually love the author's work, but that book was just bad) and Stephenie Meyer's Breaking Dawn (do I really need to explain?), so it was so refreshing to read something that was just... well, good.
The first thing that grabbed me was the cover. Doesn't this cover make you curious?
When I actually got my hands on the book, though, it was the writing that sucked me straight into the story and kept me reading. I thought the characters were interesting (even the supporting ones), and the story was compelling. My complaints were few and minor.
