Monday's Month In Retrospect

Monday's Month In Retrospect is a week late this time, as the first Monday of July was the 4th and I was otherwise occupied at that time.  But it's now that time of the month again to take a look back at the previous month and see what I considered the Best Ofs for what I read in June 2011. Remember, these are my best ofs on books I read last month, regardless of release date. 

Best Book I read last month:

Here Lies Bridget by Paige Harbison
Release Date: Been out.
Why it was my favorite: I typically don't pick a contemporary like this for my favorite book, but this was just so well-written that I had to.  The main character was someone you absolutely hated, but then she ended up redeeming herself in the end.  It was remarkable.
Reviewed: Yes. See review here.

Best Heroine:
Ari from Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton
Why she's my favorite:  Strong, resourceful.  A real fighter!  And her history was surprising and such a unique new aspect of Greek mythology.

Best Hero:
Four from Divergent by Veronica Roth
Why he's my favorite:  This guy was so quietly sexy that you just had to love him.

Best Villain:
Bridget from Here Lies Bridget by Paige Harbison
What made them a great villain: An absolutely little monster girl.  But you have to like her.

Best Cover:

Why it's my favorite: This is a super cool cover.  I love the eye of fire hovering over the city.  It's just a neat element that kind of depicts divergence.

Come on and join me! Share your Best Ofs for June!
