This is going to be a new ‘feature’ for my blog. I just thought it would be nice to look back every three months and choose my favourite book of the month, and to tell you guys a little bit about it. I was going to make it a monthly thing, but I decided to do it every three months so then I have a bit more time to ponder over it and I won’t just pick the last book I read!

January’s Book of the Month:
This is a YA debut for 2011. It’s realistic fiction, and based around a girl named Cara who misses her best friend Zoe. Zoe then shows up again, and asks to stay with Cara for a while. All of a sudden, there’s a murder. To make matters worse – the victim is Cara’s next door neighbour. It’s a really thrilling read, and definitely rather creepy!
February’s Book of the Month:
I should stop going on about this book before I frighten you all away, but I can’t! I love this book – and the rest of the series – so much. Too much to stop thinking about it! This is the first book in the VA series, and it’s about a girl named Rose who is training to be a Guardian. She overcomes lots of obstacles in this series, one of those being her more-than-a-crush on her mentor – the hot and sexy Dimitri Belikov *swoon*. I know this book is a vampire book, and this seems to put a lot of people off, but they’re not your traditional vampires! I won’t go into detail about what exactly they are, but I can tell you that the Moroi and Strigoi are much more interesting than your Bella and Edward – and even Dracula!
March’s Book of the Month:
I can’t say too much about this book, as it is the second in the Hex Hall series and I don’t want to spoil the first book for those who haven’t read it. I will say, however, that Sophie has matured, and has also become a lot more snarky! And also more intelligent. Archer is hot, as always, and Cal is adorable. I loved this book much more than Hex Hall, and highly recommend it!
Review to come!
