Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

Caught me up completely

Divergent - Veronica Roth

Extremely gripping, and I think it will make a great movie. I raced through the last 50+ pages of this dystopian thriller in such a frenzy that as soon as I finished I went back and reread those ending chapters so I could enjoy their details in a calmer frame of mind. Set in a future version of Chicago where people are divided into factions each dedicated to cultivating a particular virtue--honesty, bravery, peacefulness, intelligence and selflessness--16 year old Beatrice has to chose her path, but trouble is brewing and her decision could tear her family apart. Can't wait to start the sequel.Divergent
