Divergent and Insurgent reviews

Divergent is the first book in a trilogy by Veronica Roth.
I would have to give this book 5 stars because it was awesome.  Divergent takes place in dystopian Chicago.  It is almost like the Hunger Games, but I have to say much better, because they don't have to fight.  The kids have to chose a faction to live in, but to stay forever, they have to pass tests.  During some of the scenes, I just wanted to cry.
This is a great book and if you like/love future type books,  I totally recommend Divergent.

Of course, after reading Divergent, you should pick up Insurgent.  I give this one 5 stars, as well.

They are going to start making a Divergent movie, set to come out in March of 2014.  So better start reading.  Enjoy!

Next fav. author

My next favorite author, Shelly Crane, has a few series.  My fav. has to be the Significance series.  The last book of the Significance series comes out in December and I can't wait.  Another one of her series is the Collide series.  That series just ended and it was amazing.  You can check Shelly's facebook page out at!/shellycranefanpage or her blog page at  She has more series to come but these two series are my favorite.

Fav. Author

So,  my favorite author has to be Jessica Sorensen.  She has so many great series and even more coming out.  The first series I read by her is The Fallen Star series.  It is awesome.  She has a new book coming out called the Secret of Ella and Micha. 
This is what the Secret of Ella and Micha:

Ella and Micha have been best friends since they were kids. But one tragic night shatters their friendship and their lives forever.

Ella used to be a rule-breaker with fiery attitude who wore her heart on her sleeve. But she left everything behind when she went to college and transformed into someone that follows the rules, keeps everything together, and hides all her problems. But now it's summer break and she has nowhere else to go but home.

Ella fears everything she worked so hard to bury might resurface, especially with Micha living right next door. If Micha tries to tempt the old her back, she knows that it will be hard to resist.

Micha is sexy, smart, confident, and can get under Ella’s skin like no one else can. He knows everything about her, including her darkest secrets. And he’s determined to bring his best friend, and the girl he loves back, no matter what it takes.

(Mature Young Adult/ New Adult Contemporary.)

Below is a teaser from the book.

“I’m sorry.” I hug him closer, and say my final good-bye. “I didn’t want to think anymore. It was just too much and mind wouldn’t slow down. But it’s alright now. I can think clearly again.”
He cups my cheek, his thumb searing hot as he traces the pad lightly across my cheekbone. “Next time come to me—don’t just run. Please. I know things are hard...

right now, but it’ll get better. We’ve always made it through every single bad thing thrown at us.” Beads of water trickle in his eyelashes, along his cheeks, over his full lips. There’s a shift in the air, one I’ve felt coming for a long time.
His lips part. “Ella, I love—”
I crush my lips against his, hushing him and melting us together. I allow his tongue to caress mine and let him suck the rain from my bottom lip, savoring the taste of me. Our bodies arc together, like we can’t get enough. Heat flows through our drenched clothes, warming my skin. I could let it go on forever, but that would be wrong.


Hey everyone!  I am a new blogger, so this is going to get some getting used to.  In this blog, I am going to talk about books.  I hope that everyone will help me out by emailing me about books that you like.  Thanks!
