A classic tale of girl gets swallowed by nature and finds a supernatural world… narrated by one of the most wonderfully expressive female voices in Hollywood.
- Insurgent (Divergent Book 2) by Veronica Roth
Even the title fascinates me- immoderately turning your hero into a morally objectionable player in war, how will Tris affect this world where she never fit in?
- Allegiant (Divergent Book 3) (Divergent Book 3) by Veronica Roth
Will Tris change everything like Katness did? Or will this become another sad disappointment in the long chain of girl power trilogy conclusions? And just who are these allies?
- Wicked Designs by Lauren Smith
It’s all in the Amazon description “Warning: This novel includes a lady who refuses to stay kidnapped, a devilish duke with a dark past, and an assortment of charming rogues who have no idea what they’ve gotten themselves into.”
- Lexicon by Max Barry
I received Lexicon from my Book Riot Quarterly Subscription in January… and I keep meaning to pick it up from the coffee table where it has sat since…
- Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
I don’t really know what this book is, or why it is already purchased and on my kindle… but there it is, staring at me every time I reach for something else, and it seems like it should be read.
See any patterns there??? I think I might be on a bit of an action-adventure sort of role, with sides of awkward youth and a depressing adult life status.
