Best of the Bunch is a meme hosted here on the last day of each month, where we can look back over the books we have read 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 anytime in the following month :D

And the winner of Best of the Bunch for August goes to...


... Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi!

I loved this book for it's originality, it's unique style, the kick-ass characters and a love story that slowly grows on you. Read my full review here
It's dramatic and exciting and feels almost like a superhero movie. So, so good- can't wait for the sequel!

(From Goodreads)
Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.

The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war– and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

August has been a very bad month for me time-wise, but I have read some fantastic books lately, and I will get around to writing more reviews (fingers crossed!) in September. Four book reviews is pitiful I know, and is actually the lowest number of review posts per month in the history of the blog. I will do better!

I would love to know which book wins your Best of the Bunch for August. Please let me know which book you read or reviewed in August was your favourite by linking up below.

Who gets your bananas?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. looks like the books you did review were great. I think I get two out this month which is pitiful. Better luck next month for the both of us. I really need to read Shatter Me. I've heard so many good things about it.

  2. I've heard great things about this book. I will have to read it one of these days!! Don't feel bad about only having 4 reviews, I reviewed 6 in August and I think that is a record for the most reviews on my blog in one month! My blog is still fairly new though, so I'm still getting the hang of things! At least all the books you did read were good (according to your ratings)! :)

  3. Shatter Me is awesome! I can't wait for Unravel Me and of course also Destroy Me in Warner's POV!
