Here's what we're reading:
Finally! I'm reading Divergent! And let me just say that all the hype about this book is right on. It's pretty much rocking my world. There's a hundred things I love about it, but right now I'm marveling at how Veronica Roth has covered all these deep, moral issues in a fast-paced, romantic thriller. It's got everything I want in a story: guns and punching and mind-control and betrayal and kissing and sexy talk and zip lines and tattoos and jumping out of trains. It's brilliant.
And now for something completely different, I'm reading (or well, who are we kidding, I'm *starting*) ANNA KARENINA by Tolstoy. I felt the need for a palate cleanser from all my other reading (and my own writing), so this will be my Before Bed book for awhile ;)
Like Heather, I'm reading a palate cleanser as well. NYT bestseller
For all you fans of post-apocalyptic fiction,
I am reading a bunch of dystopian books in preparation for my August theme month on my blog. At the moment, I am nearly done with Mary E. Pearson's THE FOX INHERITANCE and I love it. It's very cerebral, thought-provoking and exciting. And it gives us another look at Jenna Fox who I absolutely adored in THE ADORATION OF JENNA FOX.
I'm reading HOURGLASS by Myra McEntire. I picked it up because the cover is absolutely entrancing, and I've heard the story is just as good. It's a YA novel about a girl who sees strange apparitions from the past, including dead people and the mysterious organization, The Hourglass, that her brother has hired to help her get rid of the visions. I've only just started but I love the voice!
