Best of the Bunch Award: November

It is absolutely terrifying that November is over already (seriously, where do these months go???), and that means it’s time for BEST OF THE BUNCH! This is a really fun monthly award ceremony that forces bloggers to pick their favorite book that they read during the month (Uh, did I say force? I meant allows… :P). It was started at Lyrical Reviews, and you can head over here to learn more!

My Best of the Bunch pick for November is…..

By Miranda Kenneally

What girl doesn’t want to be surrounded by gorgeous jocks day in and day out? Jordan Woods isn’t just surrounded by hot guys, though – she leads them as the captain and quarterback on her high school football team. They all see her as one of the guys, and that’s just fine. As long as she gets her athletic scholarship to a powerhouse university. But now there’s a new guy in town who threatens her starring position on the team… and has her suddenly wishing to be seen as more than just a teammate.

Why I Chose It:

Okay, so this book made me want to go back to high school and attend football games. Which is saying something, because even though I adore READING stories set in high school, they hardly ever make me want to go back there myself. But Catching Jordan is just so fun and adorable and totally realistic. It’s full of happy squeeworthy moments as well as angsty moments and some moments that just make you want to smack yourself on the forehead. I LOVED it.

Whether you’re a huge football fan or not (I’m not, for the record), I’d highly recommend this book. And the best thing is that there are two companion novels on the way, so we get to visit these characters again! :) (Psst... it also comes out tomorrow. :D)

If you’re interested, you can check out my full review here.

What was your favorite book from November? I never say no to a good recommendation. :)
