Books of the month: March


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

Lyndsey's Pick

I really found picking this month's book super easy! Flip stood out far from the rest of the books I have reviewed this month. It has a completely new take on body swapping stories and was extremely different than anything I had read before. You can find my review here and view the trailer here!

One December night, 14-year-old Alex goes to  bed. He wakes up to  find himself in the wrong bedroom, in an unfamiliar house, in a different part of the country, and it's the middle of June. Six months have disappeared overnight. The family at the breakfast table are total strangers.And when he looks in the mirror, another boy's face stares back at him.  A boy named Flip. Unless Alex finds out what's happened and how to get back to his own life,  he may be trapped forever inside a body that belongs to someone else.  Questions of identity, the will to survive, and what you're willing to sacrifice to be alive make this extraordinary book impossible to put down.


Vicki's Pick

Much less Book of the Month, more Book of the last two years. This months pick was incredibly easy, I knew it would be this one before I even finished it. You can see my (spoiler free!) review here to find out why Veronica Roth's Divergent completely stole my heart. 

One choice can transform you. Pass initiation. Do not fail…
Thrilling urban dystopian fiction debut from exciting young author.


In sixteen-year-old Beatrice Prior’s world, society is divided into five factions – Abnegation (the selfless), Candor (the honest), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent) – each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue, in the attempt to form a “perfect society.” At the age of sixteen, teens must choose the faction to which they will devote their lives.
On her Choosing Day, Beatrice renames herself Tris, rejects her family’s group, and chooses another faction. After surviving a brutal initiation, Tris finds romance with a super-hot boy, but also discovers unrest and growing conflict in their seemingly “perfect society.” To survive and save those they love, they must use their strengths to uncover the truths about their identities, their families, and the order of their society itself. (Published by HarperCollins May 2011)

So, have you read either of these and agree with our choices? Which are you particularly looking forward to and what was your book of the month?
