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.
In no particular order:
1. The Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon
This is the fourth book in Diana Gabaldon's fantastic "Outlander" series. I love the vivid description and the people in the Outlander books always seem so very real. The fourth book is as perfect as the first one. I like them so much I generally I manage to read an Outlander book in approximately three days, despite the hefty page count.
2. Heart's Blood by Juliet Marillier
I love all of Juliet Marrillier's books, but this may be my new favorite. It is a ghost story with a lovely ending and the most beautiful descriptions.
Sherlocke Holmes meets his match. Need I say more?
4. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
I saw the broadway play and was inspired to read this book. It made me cry.
5. Tuck by Stephen Lawhead
This the third and concluding book in Lawhead's "Hood" trilogy. This is a new take on the Robin Hood legends that places the famous archer in Wales and makes him, not Robin Hood, but Ria Bran, King Raven. Of all the Robin Hood books I have ever read (and I have read a lot) I think this trilogy is my favorite.
