Into the Deep (Into the Deep, #1)
I won Into the Deep in paperback in a giveaway by Samantha Young (>_<) !!! I don't get to read English books in paperback a lot so I was really thrilled to read it and Samantha Young never disappoint !!! It was really good, the story was told with flashback and the present alternatively, it was so frustrating that every emotions that the words can make you feel are really raw, that's why I enjoyed it so much, I can't wait to read Out of the Shallows !!!

Le relais des ombres
I'll make it short, I read the series when I was in middle school and never got the chance to finish it, so when I saw the last book of the series at the library, I knew I had to read it. It's about magic and spells but from the middle ages to 19th century, it's in 3 different trilogy, and there's some romance involved. I really enjoy this series because it surprise me that I loved the series so much because history and I are not really friend but the characters are so endearing ! So I was sad Le Relais des Ombres was the last one but it was so good !

Finders Keepers (Lost and Found, #3)
I really enjoy the whole Lost & Found series so did I with Finders Keepers, it's the story of Garth Black, the ex-antagonist and bad boy of the story, I found it so CUTE even if the word doesn't describe well the book (yeah, what I mean is it's the love story of a bad boy so ...) the word would rather be HOT ;-) !!!

Divergent (Divergent, #1)
I heard so much about the Divergent series and since there will be a movie, I decided to read it before the movie will be out, and I don't regret it, it was good and I really loved the characters even if sometimes the story was a little bit off (what I mean is it wasn't fluent at some point) but I still enjoy the story, and couldn't wait to read the second one ! I just want to add that I found some scenes really violent espcially when it's a YA novel, but if I could feel the violence, it means the book was well written, so I'm not really complaining ^^ !

As you can see, I didn't read that much because I'm back to school and this year is really decisive for me since I'll finish my two year course in product design so I really have to focus on studying this year.

I'm really addicted to books, when I begin a book I have to finish it ASAP, so I can't even read when I commute to school, so I decided this year I'll only read during week-ends and it's actually working for me (for now), that's why I didn't read a lot last month.

There's not really Books of the Month since there are only 4 books, and I enjoyed them all so they're all Books of the Month to me (^_^;)

I read two in English which are Into the Deep by Samantha Young and Finders Keepers by Nicole Williams. Both are NA novels and I really enjoyed them, like a lot.
And I read two in French which are Le Relais des Ombres (The Relay of the Shadows) by Béatrice Bottet and Divergent by Veronica Roth, both are YA novels and I enjoyed both too !!!
