Divergent by Veronica Roth (4.8/16.0)

Divergent is one of the books that I loaded on the new nooks. I think it is going to be the first book in a series, but it was a good stand alone book too. I really enjoyed reading it. It is set in a futuristic world were when children turn 16 they must decide which faction to join. There faction will determine their jobs, where they live, and how they live. Tris, the main character decides to leave her family and join the Dauntless faction. Right away she realizes something is not right. She stumbles across a plot between the Dauntless and Erudite factions to overthrow the government. She must stop them to save her family, who are government leaders.

New Nooks

Yeah! We just got in 6 more Nooks! Hopefully that will shorten the waiting time a little bit. The new Nooks are a little smaller and lighter than the older ones and the entire screen is touch sensitive. They will have different books than the older ones. I am loading several dystopian novels on them because that is all the rage. Look for titles like Hunger Games, Divergent, Ship Breaker, and Gone as well as some more light-hearted reads like Death by Bikini and Middle School, the Worst Years of My Life.

On another note, I finished Uncommon Crimials by Ally Carter and loved it! Currently reading Divergent by Veronica Roth.

Welcome Back!

Registration is tomorrow and the 1st day of school is just around the corner. I am so excited for another great year. This summer I spent my time reading the GA Book Award Nominees and enjoyed quite a few of them. I also made my way through the Uglies series (if you like Hunger Games, you should read them) and another great dystopian book called Ship Breaker. I am also very excited about the 3rd book in the Maze Runner series. I know many of you are waiting on it to come out.

I am currently reading Uncommon Criminals, the second book in the Heist Society series by Ally Carter. I have described it before as Oceans 11 for girls, but I think that might confuse some of the girls more! I'll let you know how it goes.

See some of you tomorrow and the rest of you Friday!
