Divergent (Book 1)

Standard

It’s Beatrice’s 16th birthday, the choosing ceremony, where she chooses her faction. The place she will live for the rest of her life, if she survives orientation. Faction before blood, those are the rules.

My Opinion: I really2014-03-04-divergentbyveronicaroth liked this book and I know I am pretty late to hop on the train, but I have only read the first book and have only watched the first movie. I didn’t want to read the book in the beginning, since so many people had told me I had to read this book. My cousin Hannah than just handed me the book, telling me to read the first chapter and I never stopped reading the book. My best friend than spoiled the second book for me, so know I don’t want to read it anymore, since a few characters die, that are dear to my heart. :’-(

OVERALL RATINGS: 9’* / 10’* This book has a great and well moving plotline, that stays interesting all the way through. It also has a cute love/action story hid behind the pages, that you don’t suspect when you see the cover. It’s worth reading, no matter how many people have said it. It’s still true.

Info’s about the Book:
Written by: Veronica Roth
>First book in a trilogy
> Movie with the same name and similar plotline

The Hunger Games

Standard

HungergamesCoverIn the future the United States, now known as Panem, are split up in Districts. Katniss Everdeen lives in the twelfth district. Each Year a tribute is chosen from each of the twelve districts of Panem. The Tribute is forced to participate in a ‘game’ called The Hunger Games. In this game, twenty-four tribute hunt eachother down, till only one of them is left. That single Tribute is allowed to return home in all the glory it brings in beeing a killer.

My Opinion:
At first I didn’t want to read this book. Not because people told me it was pretty violent, but because everyone told me: OMG YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK, ITS AMAZING!!!! I generally don’t read the books people tell me I HAVE to read. But then I got it as a Birthday present and I had to read it. Turns out I actually injoyed reading a more violent book, then for instance Harry Potter or Percy Jackson. I read this book a few years ago for the first time and I have read it over and over again, just for the fun of it.

>BOOK 1 IN A TRIOLOGY

Overall Rating:
I give this book 9`☆ | 10 `☆
I liked it alot but I don’t really like love triangles. I don’t know why, I just don’t. Then also the book has some moments where, I personally thought ‘Really Katniss; you trust him? He’s only waiting for the right moment to kill you.’ But then again every book has that.

Author’s Note:
Hi,
Ok, Umm anyway. The Hotel didn’t have any WiFi. Idiotic, I know. I’m in Italy right now and it pretty much rocks, but also sucks. I had a little incedent and ripped open the skin over my knee while playing soccor, but I’m all better now. Up next are these series, which I have all read, but failed to blog about:
1.Hunger Games
2.Harry Potter
3.Shadow Falls Camp
4.Percy Jackson series #2
5.Kane Chronicles
6. Ruby Red & Co.
> But NOT necessarily in that order. Just a little heads up. 😉

Have fun reading,
Ali

Pretties

Standard

After waiting 16 years Tally is finally a pretty and gets to live in the nice part of town. Life for Tally is bubblier than she could have ever imagined.

Tally and her friends slowly discover a way around what Special Circumstances did to brain during the surgery. And when the gang gets back up from The New Smoke, everything seems to be slowly falling into place.

My Opinion:
I enjoyed reading this book a lot. I liked the Hoverboarding scenes the most. This book has a good part of action in it, but it’s also filled with alot of feelings. The same way the first book ended this too, ends in a gigantic cliffhanger.

FIRST BOOK FROM A TRIOLOGY!!!
Written by: Scott Westerfeld

My Opinion: If you don’t like Cliffhangers you might wanna have all the books at once, because the book ends in a cliffhanger.
(No pun intended.)
I really enjoyed reading this book, because it was similar to The Hungar Games, only slightly less agressive. This book is though only similar to The Hungar Games by playing in the future and being a love story. Otherwise there completely different. The book is great for people who love stories that play in the future.

Enjoy reading,
