INSURGENT by Veronica Roth

Okay, so here's my newest plug for the new Insurgent book....seriously have you not read Divergent yet???

On other book news, I finally read Orson Wells 1984, after having too many people ask if Ive ever read it...well I did. The three 'classic' dytopians are 1984, Brave New World and a book called 'We'. I honestly haven't heard of 'We' much though, If I can remember correctly I think its German. I have read the other two though, and they were not quick reads AT ALL. You know what I think about some of the more modern books, is that they develop characters that you love and feel like you can relate to, they paint stories with their words. Quite frankly that wasn't happening so much with 1984, it was just too filled with information. And, while I didn't find it really interesting, I have to admit it took me almost 2 weeks to finish (that's forever in my reading ways) and I did take a break for two days and quickly read Hunger Games again.

I'm needing some new book ideas, have any? Maybe I need to start a book group!

The Help is excellent. Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie society sounds weird but is excellent.
