This Week's YA Highway Road Trip Topic:
What was the best book you read in March?
I had another incredible listening month. Next Monday I'll share the whole list. But today I need to pick a favorite.
My love of Historicals won out this month. Along with the fact I haven't seen any buzz about this book online.
It's WRAPPED, by Jennifer Bradbury:
Agnes Wilkins would much rather be traveling the world than having her debut into society. But when she pockets an item from a mummy at an unwrapping party, she finds that the world might end up coming to her...in dangerous ways.
As I've admitted before, I'm highly biased toward Historicals and YA ones are hard to come by...making me even more biased toward them.
Nevertheless, I loved how this one managed to throw in some believable teen angst...plus the problem of never liking the guy your parents (mom, especially) want/wants you to like.
The English fascination with Egyptian artifacts brought me back the my Amelia Peabody listening days (A wonderful Historical Mystery series by Elizabeth Peters/Barbara Michaels). So, overall, a thoroughly enjoyable listen for me.
What about you? Read/heard of Wrapped? Read anything by Elizabeth Peters/Barbara Michaels?
