Best of the Bunch September 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.

September 2014

Another busy month for me this month! I have read...

  • Maze Runner by James Dashner- 4 of 5 stars
  • Erased by Jennifer Rush (Altered, book 2)- 5 of 5 stars
  • Slayers by C.J Hill- 5 of 5 stars
  • Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter- 4 of 5 stars
I didn't read a lot but I did love all the books I did get through.

My pick for the title of Best of the Bunch September is...


... Erased by Jennifer Rush!

Erased  by Jennifer Rush

They thought they had escaped. They were wrong.

After fleeing the Branch with Sam, Cas, and Nick, Anna is learning how to survive in hiding, following Sam's rules: Don't draw attention to yourself. Always carry a weapon. Know your surroundings. Watch your back.
When memories from Anna's old life begin to resurface--and a figure from her childhood reappears--Anna's loyalties are tested. Is it a Branch set-up, or could it be the reunion Anna has hoped for? Ultimately, the answers hinge on one question: What was the real reason her memories were erased in the first place?
Jennifer Rush delivers a thrilling sequel to Altered in a novel packed with mysteries, lies, and surprises that are sure to keep readers guessing until the last page is turned.

Wow. I absolutely loved the first book in the series Altered when I read it last year. And the sequels are never as good are they? The middle book is always just a filler in the trilogy right? WRONG!
This book was amazing. Take a book with a bunch of genetically altered guys, add a dollop of romance, throw in a few "Oh My God" moments and a couple of "I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING"s, then break my heart a couple of times, mix in some action, drop in a super villain and BOOM! 

Winner. Well deserved 5 stars. This is so clever, brilliantly plotted, mysterious and genius. 

Honourable mention goes to Slayers for also being brilliant, great fun, and bringing in a new mythology about dragons and dragon slayers that I could get on board with. I enjoyed all the characters and the bonds between them. 

So that was my September, but I want to know what the best book YOU read or reviewed this month was? 

Let me know, link up your posts below, and happy reading!

  1. I've been thinking about reading The Maze Runner before the movie comes out, but I'm not sure if I have the time. Thanks for hosting!
