Best of the Bunch May 2014

Best of the Bunch is a book blog hop hosted here on the last day of each month, where we can look back over the books we have read over this past month and give a Best of the Bunch award to our favourite book of that month.

I always put up my post on the last day of the month, but remember, you can add your link in anytime in the following month.

...Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi!

Ignite Me  by Tahereh Mafi

With Omega Point destroyed, Juliette doesn’t know if the rebels, her friends, or even Adam are alive. But that won’t keep her from trying to take down The Reestablishment once and for all. Now she must rely on Warner, the handsome commander of Sector 45. The one person she never thought she could trust. The same person who saved her life. He promises to help Juliette master her powers and save their dying world . . . but that’s not all he wants with her.

What an ending to a roller coaster ride of a series! I loved the beautiful writing, the thrilling action, the romance, the quirkiness of the characters, the whole world of the story. This book is amazing- just heart- rending and powerful and memorable. I have a full review of this book coming soon, but I love the transformation of Juliette as a character, and well... everything about this book! An easy 5 stars. 

That was my pick for this month- but who gets your bananas?
Let me know in the linky below!


  1. Yeah! Ignite Me was awesome. Perfect ending to a perfect series! <3

  2. I'm dying to read this series! I've heard such great things about it, and I also like Tahere a lot, she's pretty unique and cool! I'm glad you liked it that much, just makes me want to grab it pronto!

    1. Yes, you definitely need to read this series- it's so good. I love Tahereh Mafi, I follow her on twitter and she's always so sweet and funny.

  3. I still haven't read this series, though I won the first book - need to get to it soon!

  4. I love this meme! I will be sure to mark it down and give it a try. I have heard great things about Ignite Me. I have to read Shatter Me. I have had it in my reading forevs. I am now way behind.
