Here’s what I’m reading:
Divergent is to feed my Hunger Games kick. It similar, but I’m a bit bored with it. It is about a society where teens pick factions to belong to and each faction exhibits particular characteristics that the group believes will prevent war and conflict. The premise doesn’t really work for me and it took me a bit to realize that I can’t actually picture the setting of the book, nor can I get into the main character. I’m not sure if I will finish it.
This book feeds my Twilight taste. It is about a teenage girl who is sent to a school for kids who have committed crimes, due to a situation she found herself in. She meets a boy whom she is drawn to and feels she has known in the past. This one is pretty good. There are parts that drag, but the overall story is interesting and keeps you wondering what is really happening. The supporting characters are quirky and interesting.
Oh, oh, oh! Love this series! (It is one of the few books I am reading right now that are not young adult – which I often find to be better written and more interesting.) I think there are 8 books and they are each like 1000 pages long! I read the first last summer and began the second and am now just coming back to it. The history is fantastically interesting and the plot is fantastic. Sometimes the length can frustrates me, as well as the needs to really think about specific things that have happened to make sense of events.
These are the books in my “to be read” pile!
So, what are you reading?
