CURRENTLY READING
I wasted no time in starting to read ALLEGIANT yesterday - the very day it came out!!! Woohoo!! I am only 9% into it so far - thanks to having little to no time to read yesterday, but I'll make my way through it eventually. I cannot wait to see how this trilogy unfolds!!

JUST FINISHED
After what felt like months, I finally finished The Orchardist. I bought this book quite a while ago when I kept seeing/hearing great reviews about it. From the description, the book sounded quite good and something I would enjoy. Well...not so much. I don't know if I'm missing something or maybe this was just a case where a book just isn't a good fit for me. I thought it was at least 100 pages longer than it needed to be and the author did this crazy thing of repeating what just happened simply by changing who the story was coming from. That was really annoying. I gave it 3 stars, though I sometimes feel like maybe 2 would have been more accurate for my experience.

TO READ NEXT

I cannot wait to start reading THE PARIS ARCHITECT..this is one from my preferred time-frame - Holocaust era and it sounds like a fabulous story set in a very dark time in history. When this one first started showing up on book blogs, I immediately added it to my to-read list and then saw the e-book price of $14.49!! What?!?! Never saw one that high before!! Then my luck changed and yesterday it went down to $5.99 on Kindle!! Woohoo!!

I can't wait to see how Allegiant ends either. It's a shame some people have been disappointed by it. Happy Reading :-)

I really hope you like Allegiant because I have heard so many disliking it. I haven't yet read Divergent but I'm probably starting it next because now all the books in the series are finally out :)I hope I too like them all!

I finished Allegiant yesterday and I'm sorry to say that it wasn't as good as the previous two books.

I hated the first two so won't read the third. A friend who loved the first two hated the third. Who knows.

I'm currently reading Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking.

I just finished reading. . .um. . .god apparently it wasn't all that awesome if I've already forgotten. . . oh The Art of Hearing Heartbeats. Pretty good, though they flaked on any motivation at the end, making dad look like a dick.

Next is One Hundred White Women for book club.

I still have not read the Divergent trilogy. My daughter has been hounding me to read it. Now that they are all out, maybe I should, that way I won't have to wait. hehehe

Great books! Happy reading!
