February: SPLIT by Swati Avasthi
March: BITTERBLUE by Kristin Cashore
-an expansive, layered and complex fantasy novel with tremendous writing and beautiful characters. Kristin Cashore is my queen of YA fantasy.
April: THIS IS NOT A TEST by Courtney Summers
-it's so grippingly in your face with complex characters and perfect writing. My favourite CS book so far, it's brilliant. Released June 19.
May: CODE NAME VERITY by Elizabeth Wein
-beautifully written, intricate, clever, and hit me so hard. The plot was utterly genius and the friendship between the two leading ladies is sensational.
June / July: NONE
-I was looking over all the books I read lately and none of them really stuck out to me (yes, this does seem to indicate I'm in a 2 month reading slump). No five-star reads, unfortunately.
