Angel Fever by L.A Weatherly!

In the devastated remains of the world, millions of people live in "refugee" camps provided by the angels who have all but enslaved humanity. As this angelic stranglehold tightens, Willow and Alex are recruiting and training new Angel Killers while struggling to hold ground on the celestial battlefield. But Willow continues to have feelings for Seb, and her love and resolve are tested as a shattering revelation sends Alex on a separate journey. Now that the final battle versus the angels is about to begin-and the fate of the world hangs in the balance-each of them must face the consequences of their own choices. Will love endure? Will the human race survive?

This was just a phenomenal ending to what has been one of my favorite YA series. It was exciting, it moved me, it engrossed me and ultimately left with that contented warm and fuzzy feeling. Love this series. 

Honourable mention goes to Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers. I can't let this book slip by unmentioned- it is amazing- historical fantasy at it's finest. Characters that got under my skin, intrigue and rescues... such a great book.

So I'd love to know- what was the best book you read/ reviewed this month? Link it up here! 
Already written up a monthly wrap-up post? Why not link it up here!? And don't forget to visit the other blogs to get some great new book recs. 

Just let me know- Who gets your bananas?

Thanks for stopping by!
