Current Reads: Divergent

Yay, I’m finally breaking out of my reading funk! I managed to finish three books last week, and I’m really close to finishing The Hunchback of Notre-Dame! The cover images take you to GoodReads, as usual.

I am currently reading

By: Veronica Roth
Genre: YA Dystopian SF
From: My bookshelf

Sixteen-year-old Tris is forced to make a terrible choice. In a divided society where everyone must conform, Tris does not fit. So she ventures out alone, determined to discover where she truly belongs. Shocked by her brutal new life, Tris can trust no one.

Late to the party, I am only now starting to read the very popular Divergent. You guys suggested I should pick it up next from my bookshelf, so that is what I did. I have only read a couple of pages, so I have no opinion yet! I’ve heard good things, though.

(Mercy Thompson #1)
By: Patricia Briggs
Genre: Urban Fantasy / Paranormal Romance
From: The library

Mercedes Thompson runs a garage in the Tri-Cities. She’s a mechanic – and a damn good one – who spends her spare time karate training and tinkering with a VW bus that happens to belong to a vampire. Her next-door neighbour is an alpha werewolf – literally, the leader of the pack. And Mercy herself ia a shapeshifter, sister to coyotes. Hardly a normal situation, but then, Mercy Thompson is not exactly a normal young lady… and her connection to the world of things that go bump in the night is about to get her into a whole lot of trouble.

Last week I read

Veronica Britton The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Attachments

I finally finished Veronica Britton: Chronic Detective, a time-travel novel that had promise but was flawed. I also went to the library to get some easy reads to break me out of my May reading funk, and borrowed five books. I already finished Attachments by Rainbow Rowell (entertaining enough to read in one sitting) and a reread of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (always fun, plus I love Zaphod).

  1. Yeah, who doesn’t love the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy? It helps me to re-read old fav as well when I’m in a reading slump, so I’m glad you finally got over it :)

    I’m yet to try the Mercy Thompson series, too, and I hope you’re enjoying Divergent.

    Happy reading & have another great reading week!

    • I think I’m going to re-read all the Hitchhiker’s Guide books when I’m at it. It’s been a while!

      I wanted to try a new urban fantasy series, and Mercy Thompson looked like the most interesting one. It also looked like a quick read, which is one of the reasons I picked it up from the library.

    • I looked into some different urban fantasy series, and Mercy Thompson looked like one of the most interesting ones. Plus it happened to be on the shelf in the library! I hope I’ll like it.

  2. So many people ADORE Divergent. I thought it was good, but not as much so as most book lovers. Even my English teacher was telling me how many people demanded her to read it. I hope you love it as much as everybody else!

    My Monday post!:)

  3. I enjoyed Divergent. I’m about to read Insurgent. I’m reading The Host and Anna Karenina.

  4. Wow, great reading selections! I still have to read Divergent — one of these days! I love the Mercy Thompson series so much! I hope you like it too. I really liked Attachments as well — have you read Eleanor & Park yet? It’s completely different, really moving, and just shows what a great writer Rainbow Rowell is!
