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.
This Week's Topic is:
What's the best book you've read in February?
February was a slow reading month. In fact I haven't finished the book I've been reading yet. This month was really about editing and writing so reading wasn't my top priority.
I've been reading On Writing by Stephen King and honestly, even if I had read more this month this would have been my favourite. I've been recommended it by so many bloggers and writers, all with great things to say about it so I finally got it off my shelf and started it.
I'm probably committing book vandalism here (at least in my boyfriend's eyes) but I've been highlighting away on all his great advice. I love the mix of writing advice and his autobiography. The way he tells it is itself a story with such vivid memories of how he came to be a writer. And how much he struggled at first. It's so realistic. We see authors nowadays like Stephenie Meyer and JK Rowling who became instant hits. And that's the image people may see of an author. You write a book and it's worth millions. But it isn't. Stephen King is considered one of the world's greatest writers yet it took a few years to get on that road to success. It didn't come straight away and I'm glad he wrote about that.
And that's my one and only best book of February. What's yours? :)
