Book of the Month - February 2011

Each month we will take a look back at everything we reviewed and each pick a favourite!

Vicki's Book of the Month

This month it's easy. My Sister Lives On The Mantelpiece is one of the most stunning, beautifully written and touching books I've read. It's brave, powerful, sad and funny and is going to be huge. You can read my review here!

My Sister Lives On the Mantelpiece by Annabel Pitcher

Ten-year-old Jamie Matthews has just moved to the Lake District with his Dad and his teenage sister, Jasmine for a 'Fresh New Start'. Five years ago his sister's twin, Rose, was blown up by a terrorist bomb. His parents are wrecked by their grief, Jasmine turns to piercing, pink hair and stops eating. The family falls apart. But Jamie hasn't cried in all that time. To him Rose is just a distant memory. Jamie is far more interested in his cat, Roger, his birthday Spiderman T-shirt, and in keeping his new friend Sunya a secret from his dad. And in his deep longing and unshakeable belief that his Mum will come back to the family she walked out on months ago. When he sees a TV advert for a talent show, he feels certain that this will change everything and bring them all back together once and for all. Published by Orion 1st March 2011

Lyndsey's Book of the Month

This month's pick was extremely easy for me as well. As soon as I read this book, I knew it would be one of my favourites for a long time. It is completely different than most books I have read recently and was a stand out as soon as I had finished the first page. You can find my review here!

Forsaken: The Demon Trappers by Jana Oliver

Riley has always wanted to be a Demon Trapper like her father, and she's already following in his footsteps as one of the best. But it's tough being the only girl in an all-guy world, especially when three of those guys start making her life more complicated: Simon, the angelic apprentice who has heaven on his side; Beck, the tough trapper who thinks he's God's gift, and Ori, the strikingly sexy stranger who keeps turning up to save her ass. One thing's for sure - if she doesn't keep her wits about her there'll be hell to pay...
