What is your most memorable book that you have read?

Asked by lifeissweetinbooks

It’s impossible to say. (I actually have quite a bad memory anyway!). But I can say that some of the most memorable that I’ve read so far this year are Sleuth on Skates (smart and funny young protagonist), Hyperbole and a Half (honest and witty memoir), We Were Liars (beautiful setting and surprising twist), Trouble (fun and honest story about teenage pregnancy), Ketchup Clouds (wonderful contemporary novel), Liar & Spy (superbly written, original and moving middle grade mystery).

See, I can’t even pick one book from this year!

Hi! Can you suggest to me words that are related to books and/or reading? Thanks! :D
