Back on topic: Four is awesome. I'm having a lot of fun with Divergent.
Incarceron - Catherine Fisher.
All I do is rewrite.
just finished sister mischief and want to go private. after those heavy books I needed something fluffy so now I'm reading the break up diaries.
I started Awaken last night, and I honestly don't know if I want to finish it. I'm only 40 pages in, but some of the world building is just driving me nuts. I mean the premise is okay, that too much internet and online stuff is cutting people off from each other, but these other things - like there are no trees?? People plant plastic ones instead and in the fall they spray paint them with the fall colors? It's just kind of ridiculous. I usually always try to finish a book once I start it, but with this one, IDK. Has anyone else read it?
I finished Divergent last night. Loved it. Can't wait for a sequel. Still need to write my review.
I'm so glad that all WalMart had that night I was desperate for a book was The Hunger Games. I wouldn't have ended up touching any of this dystopian stuff otherwise. Would've been a real shame, since I've enjoyed all the books I've read so much.
Hmm... Perfect Chemistry, Nevermore or Delirium? I can't seem to decide what I'll read next. My chapters order had better hurry up and get here before I run out of stuff to read.
Finished Chain Reaction. (Hm, I'm kind of disappointed. Somehow the blurb tricked me into believing that finally the girl would be the 'bad one' in the relationship - but she wasn't. I feel cheated. )
I'm going to read Uncommon Criminals next. But it really annoys me not to know Hale's first name(s). Grr. Grrrr.

Finished the Ask and the Answer, slightly bothered by the ending, but am holding out judgement for the third book.
Picked up a .99cent book on the ipad called Eden by Keary Taylor seems really interesting the first 60ish pages.

Will finish Invincible Summer today. What a different type of contemp for me. her writing and story are actually really refreshing and so realistic. I think my new expression instead of Holy Shit will be Shitdamn and/or Holy Moskowitz
After these last few pages, I will be reading Vampire Academy.

Awesome that you liked Divergent.
I liked Perfect Chemistry, but I wasn't a huge fan as some people are. I haven't read the others on your list.
I'm reading Split by Swati Avashi right now. Very engaging male voice and deep story. I'm really enjoying it.
I'm just starting Nevermore, even though I know I'm going to be annoyed at the end. (Spoiler: I hate cliffhangers and I've been warned it has a big one.) We'll see how it goes, though.
Read Divergent, Anna and the French Kiss, and Paranormalcy this week... and enjoyed them all in their own ways.
Finished HUNTING LILA by Sarah Alderson and it left me cold. The story was predictable in every way, I never felt any sympathy for the MC (who is an utter ninny) and the male lead is defined almost exclusively by his hotness. There's a set up for a sequel but I won't be checking it out.
Started GLOW by Amy Kathleen Ryan and I'm not getting into it so far. The 'religious extremism' plot strand is a bit heavy-handed and there's a lot of telling rather than showing. But I shall continue with it.
Did the impossible and scored an ARC of Erin Morganstern's The Night Circus. Just finished it a few hours ago and I'm still giddy. Lovely story! Now off to re-read 1987.
Really? She must be so excited, there's so much buzz about her book and it's well deserved buzz as well! If she sees this bravo. I can't wait to read her next book!
