Best of the Bunch is a monthly meme that was started at Lyrical Reviews and is currently hosted at Always Lost in Stories. It gives bloggers the chance to share their absolute favorite book they read from the past month.
I really really suck at the whole “pick one” thing, so this month it’s a three-way tie for my favorite pick. I know, I know. But hey, more awesome books for you to check out! :D
My first pick is…..
Such a Rush
By Jennifer Echols
Why: Jennifer Echols is one of my favorite authors ever, and Such a Rush was absolutely amazing. Brother drama, fake relationships, sexual tension, and AIRPLANES. Now more than ever, I really want to be a pilot. I LOVE this book. My full review will be up closer to the release date.
My second pick…
By Robin LaFevers
Why: This is historical fantasy at its absolute finest. To convince you, here’s part of my review:
“THINGS I LOVE:
A map at the beginning of the book. Traveling primarily on horseback, with stops at inns and taverns along the way (serving wenches!). A convent of assassin nuns. Swords. Poison. Bows and arrows. Castles. Secret tunnels in the walls of castles. Battles on horseback. Horns as communication in battle (I had SUCH a Lord of the Rings moment at one point *swoon*). ASSASSIN NUNS. Going undercover as a mistress. Court intrigue. Bracelet weapons. Poisoned pearls as decoration in hair. Chess. Did I mention the assassin nuns?
Are you swooning yet?”
You can read my full review here, and you should DEFINITELY pick up a copy of Grave Mercy when it releases on Tuesday!
And my third and final pick…
By Hannah Harrington
Why: Grief, music, and a road trip all combine to make Saving June such an emotional, heartwarming, and smile-inducing read. And I have to mention the slow burn romance. Swooooooooonnnnn. I can’t believe I waited so long to read this. What is wrong with me?? My full review will be up soon!
