Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth
When you run, you aim to run negative times, always trying to beat your previous lap. So why can this concept not be applied to literature…we should all endeavour to be better the next time, shouldn’t we? There are so many book series that seem to get worse as you read; Twilight, Hunger Games, Divergent….
I enjoyed Divergent, the concept wasn’t unfamiliar…
“I have stolen ideas from every book I have ever read.”

I have finished it, I wish I could have read it forever.
Oh my goodness, I am almost finished the book. I keep watching the trailer because if I am not reading the story then I want to see the it.
I recently re-read The Confession and I rarely read any book twice let alone within a year of finishing the book the first time. I am pleased to say the book was just as gripping the second time round and I think I even appreciated it more.

The Fault in our Stars by John Green

The feeling you get when you read a book that has completely consumed you and you then watch the trailer to the film.
Coupled with the knowledge that this profound story is true!!!
I am reading Tracks by Robyn Davidson and I cannot put it down, it has me gripped at the very core of everything emotional and I have just found out it is a true story which makes continuing to read it feel like I’ve…
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Another young adult fiction that I thoroughly enjoyed. It is Suzanne Collins meets George Orwell with a hint of dystopia (a la Margaret Atwood).
Part of a trilogy, of which I am on the 2nd now (Insurgent). I began reading it as the film has recently been released and I always prefer reading before watching a book.
I think I will provide a fuller review upon finishing…
Me: “I need a new book to read”
Him: “I’m reading the Perks of Being a Wallflower, it is really good”
Him: “Don’t know, just is, read it”
Not the best sales pitch I have to admit, and no matter how hard I tried to squeeze out information, he simply couldn’t articulate why he liked this book so much, which is saying something as he is…
