Each month, we ask our bloggers to share the best thing they’ve read (or things, plural, if our bloggers declare a tie ’cause they just can’t choose). It doesn’t have to be a new book, as evidenced below; just something that made the month sparkle a bit more.
Without further ado, here’s the installment for February 2015 (and if you’ve missed any, be sure to check out past recs via the Related Posts section at the bottom of the post):
I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson was such an excruciating read, it has to be my best book of the month. :-) The narrative is cleverly and fiendishly designed to cause as much pain and suspense as possible; I won't spoil the ending, but the payoff is worth it. It's also gorgeously written, and would be a great choice to give to anyone who sneers at Young Adult literature.
Risking It All by Tessa Bailey
I've been a fan of Bailey's books for some time, but Risking It All is my favorite. I'm a sucker for the enemies-to-lovers trope, and she's a master. What's best about this particular novel—the first in a new series—is the way she twists the trope in a new and exciting way. Also, she writes some of the best dirty-talkin' alphas out there. Swooning for Bowen Driscol is guaranteed.
