    I’m not huge into books but I saw the Divergent movie trailer and it seemed very similar to The Hunger Games. What do you think?

      It’s similar in that it’s young adults in a dystopian setting who kind of have to rise up and save the world. I think I still like Hunger Games better, but I’ve only read 1 out of 3 of the Divergent novels, so maybe I should wait and see.

    I love my YA books – they are just such satisfying read. I’ll definitely go pick up divergent.

      Let me know what you think of Divergent!

    I recently added The Circle to the list of possibilities for my book club for exactly the reasons you gave, sometimes I think the books that end up being divisive are the best! There’s only so much you can talk about if everyone loves a book. (Plus, I’ve really been wanting to read it!)

      Yes, I totally agree. I think my book club had its most interesting discussion thus far about The Circle because we all felt so differently about it. I’d love to know what you think if you do end up reading it!

      Me too! Although I get sad as my “to read” list inevitably grows, while my “have read” list plateaus.

        Well you’re in school so I imagine you don’t really have a lot of time to read for pleasure (I didn’t when I was in school!).

      Thanks Krystal! I would love to hear what you think if you do decide to read any of these :)
