Best of the Bunch #1: October 2011 Pick

"Best of the Bunch" is a monthly book blogger meme hosted by Lyrical Reviews
Once a month, participants pick the best book they read for that month and give it the "Best of the Bunch" award! 

I just found this really cool book blogger meme and thought it'd be fun to join in! Usually, it's super easy to figure out what book I liked best from month to month. 

So, here's my pick for the "Best of the Bunch" book that I read during October 2011:


This Dark Endeavor by Kenneth Oppel

This book is fantastic! Just blew me away. But, since I haven't even reviewed it on my blog, yet, I won't say too much about it. That review is actually forthcoming on Halloween, just in time for the subject matter, which stars a 16-year-old Victor Frankenstein before he creates his monster. It is an amazing YA read, full of mysterious magical alchemy, forbidden libraries, exciting adventure, and very dramatic romance.  

UPDATE: I have since put up my review of this book! Clicky here to read it....

What's your "Best of the Bunch" pick for this past month?


  1. Ooooh, this sounds GOOD. Actually, I should say your summary sounds good; I read the real blurb and it didn't grab my attention at ALL. LOL

    Will definitely be watching for your review!

  2. @BJ: It IS good. I'll have my review up soon. He's a Canadian author, so maybe that'll help pique your interest?

  3. Sounds like my kind of book. Frankenstein is one of my favorite books of all time -- I'd love to read this! Thanks for featuring it. :) Looking forward to your review!

  4. @Alyssa: That's great! I love Frankenstein, too, so reading this was such an easy decision for me.

  5. I've seen this book, but have never paid much attention to it. I'll definitely keep an eye out for it now.

  6. Wow, this sounds like a great book, I love it when famous characters are taken back to "before they were famous". Great pick! Thanks for joining in Best of the Bunch!

  7. @Lyrical: Thanks! And, you're welcome. It's a really neat meme.
