Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.

What’s that YAHighway? What’s the best book I read in May?
Sadly, I didn’t get a whole lot of reading done last month, but that’s okay because I know the winner! Definitely Brigid Kemmerer’s STORM. Here’s a blurb from her very own blog:
Ever since her ex-boyfriend spread lies about her, Becca Chandler is suddenly getting all the guys—the ones she doesn’t want. Then she saves Chris Merrick from a beating in the school parking lot. Chris is different. Way different: he can control water—just like his brothers can control fire, wind, and earth. They’re powerful. Dangerous. Marked for death.
And now that she knows the truth, so is Becca.
When Hunter, the mysterious new kid in town, turns up with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time, Becca thinks she can trust him. But then Hunter goes head-to-head with Chris, and Becca wonders who’s hiding the most dangerous truth of all…
I’ve said in a recent post that I’ve had my eye on Brigid for some time now because she writes about Elementals – just like me! I love how she incorporates the Elements into the life of modern teenhood. My favorite Merrick Brother by far is Michael, but I’ve loved him ever since I read about him in Brigid’s novella ELEMENTAL.
If you’re looking for a story with hot boys and a bit of “magic”, STORM is it! I cannot wait for Book II SPARK.
Can your best read of May top mine? Let me know in the comments!
