Best Of The Bunch - November 2012

"Best of the Bunch is a monthly wrap-up and award ceremony hosted [at Always Lost in Stories] 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 just stumbled across this meme and thought it sounded fun so I'm going to give it a go! :)

This month I read...
  1. Pandemonium (Delirium #2) by Lauren Oliver
  2. Die For Me by Amy Plum
  3. 1984 by George Orwell
  4. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
  5. Rebel Heart (Blood Red Road #2) by Moira Young
  6. Losing Lila (Lila #2)  by Sarah Alderson

And the book I'm going to award the Best Of The Bunch Award for November is...

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green!!!!

"Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 13, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumours in her lungs... for now.

Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too; post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault.

Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind."

This book has not just become my favourite book for November, but my favourite book of ALL TIME. It pains me somewhat to admit that, yes, it has in fact just pipped The Hunger Games as my favourite book...(although I do still love the Hunger Games!!!!) But The Fault In Our Stars seriously is a FANTABUMAZING book!!!! I don't know why I didn't pick it up sooner and I politely request demand that everyone who hasn't read it yet does so as soon as possible immediately.



  1. Okay wow- so many great books in that list I don't know where to start! I love Pandemonium and Die For Me, and I still need to read Rebel Heart soon.
    You are the second person this week who has told me that I NEED to read Fault In Our Stars- I really need to get on that!
    Great post!

    *calms down* I agree with everything you said, it is definitely one of my favourite books. You have read some great other books this month too - I am dying to read Pandemonium, Rebel Heart, and the Lila series.
    I hope next month is just as good for you! :) <3

  3. Hooray for TFios! I still need to read that book, I know, I SUCK. It sounds so fabulous! Oh, I read Die For Me 2 years ago and I thought it was great. Awesome books this month! Good luck in December as well :)


Hiya there! Thanks for dropping by The Book Parade!

***N.B. This is now an award-free zone. I'm honoured if you consider me, but people taking the time to read my posts and comment is the most valuable award I could receive. Thanks! :D
