Top Spot: August 2011

Posted on 08/26/2011 in Book Review / 3 Comments

What was your favorite read this month? What was your Top Spot?
Top Spot is a new monthly blog meme hosted by the Skype Sisters. Every month we will get together to share our favorite read from that month and we would love for you join us! This meme will take place over the last weekend of every month, giving us all a chance to gush over the great reads we’ve encountered and bring an awesome ending to the current month. The Top Spot book can be anything you’ve read, whether it’s old or new, an ARC or a finished copy. All August reads counts!

How to play along: • Pick your favorite read from the current month • Make a blog post stating your Top Spot pick and share with us why it got the Top Spot for you. Feel free to add (link or attatched) reviews, book summaries or teasers in the post as well for people to take a look at.   » NOTE: No book spoilers allowed! If you have to add them, be sure to include a warning.

• Add your post in the linky and enjoy the current months favorites!

My Top Spot

Putting Makeup On Dead People Jen Violi

I can’t really go into too much detail on why Putting Makeup On Dead People was a Top Spot for me, because my review goes live next week.  But I really, REALLY enjoyed it.  It had all the right makings for a spectacular Young Adult book and Violi executed it perfectly.  It’s a shame it’s a stand-a-lone, because I would have enjoyed reading more of the Parisi family.


Got a Top Spot for the month of August?  If so, I’d love to hear about it!

The following two tabs change content below.
Jennifer is both a book nerd and professional photographer. That means she lives in the fantasy world all the time, whether of her making, or someone else's. She collects books like the Duggar family collects kids, and began waiting for her Hogwarts letter at the tender age of 33.

  1. I just got this in the mail this week and can’t wait to read it! April talked a lot about it and I’m glad you seem to have liked it just as much! 😀 My Top Spot can be found here!

  2. I’m so glad you loved it too!! It was so amazingtastic in a really unique way, without having all the flash and action so many of the books we usually read have.. and yes, it’s dang shame it’s a stand-alone, but I have hope Jen Violi might revisit the characters at some point (says a little prayer!) Especially Donna Parisi, she’s probably one of my fav YA characters of ALL time. April @ My Shelf Confessions
