I've been lucky enough to read some awesome books through August and this is a hard decision.
Blameless by Gail Carriger [review]
Wake by Lisa McMann [review]
The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa [review]
My winner though is Evernight by Claudia Gray. Technically I finished it in September, but I started it in August so it counts ;)
I love it because it's not your typical teen vampire love story. And it's freaking awesome!! My review of it is here.
Bianca has just left the small town where she's spent her whole life. She's a new student at Evernight Academy, a creepily Gothic boarding school where her classmates are somehow too perfect: smart, sleek and almost predatory. Bianca knows she doesn't fit in.
Then she meets Lucas, another loner, who seems fiercely determined not to be the "Evernight type." There's a connection between Bianca and Lucas that can't be denied. She would risk anything to be with him—but dark secrets are fated to tear them apart... and to make Bianca question everything she's ever believed to be true.
So what's your Book of the Month?
