Insurgent

Title: Insurgent
Author: Veronica Roth
Rating: 5/5 and FAV.

Description:
One choice can transform you — or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself — while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grow. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable — and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so. As she has left the city and gone beyond the gates that Dauntless protects.

My Thoughts:

I can't wait for this book!

The novel is called Through the Zombie Glass by Gena Showalter. I love her books. And will love to get an advance copy of this book by the author. If I don't get it I'll still be reading it when it comes out. This is book 2 of The White Rabbit Chronicles. Also I'm a huge Alice in Wonderland fan- if that helps!



Description from Goodreads:
Inspired by the childhood classic Alice in Wonderland, this harrowing and romantic story features teen zombie slayer Alice Bell who has lost so much—family, friends, her home. After a strange new zombie attack, Alice fears she may be losing her mind as well. A terrible darkness blooms inside her, urging her to do wicked things. The whispers of the dead assault her ears and mirrors seem to come frighteningly to life. She’s never needed her team of zombie slayers more—including her boyfriend, Cole—than she does now. But as Cole strangely withdraws and the zombies gain new strength, Ali knows one false step may doom them all.


This title will be released on September 24, 2013.

Divergent

Title: Divergent
Author: Veronica Roth
Rating: 5/5 fav.

Description:
In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.


My Review:
Holy Moly, this book had me at the edge of my seat for the whole thing. I enjoyed the story, characters, writing style, everything. And I read 300 and something pages last nite to finish it. Now just need book 2 of it... come on library.

William Joyce Reading Time

I took 3 books of William Joyce, read them and enjoyed every second of those books here are their reviews :)



Title: The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore
Author:  William Joyce
Rating: 4/5

Description:
From New York Times bestselling author and beloved creator William Joyce, a tender tribute to books and the lasting power of story. Morris Lessmore loved words. He loved stories. He loved books. But every story has its upsets. With one gust of wind, Morris Lessmore’s world is shifted.  Everything he knew, everything he hoped for, would be tested. But the power of story would save the day.     

Stunningly brought to life by William Joyce, one of the preeminent creators in children’s literature, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore is a modern masterpiece, showing that in today’s world of traditional books, eBooks and apps, it’s story that we truly celebrate—and this story, no matter how you tell it, begs to be read again and again.

My Review:
This story is amazing... its actually a story of life and death at the end. I enjoyed the artwork. And it took less than 5 mins to read. What a great kids book!
