Kristen's Reading Nook

 I'm currently obtaining my masters in Library Science and Information from the University of Alabama. I graduated from Texas A&M in 2006, and have been teaching and coaching ever since. I love reading new books, and finding books that I can share with my students. I read a little bit of everything, but a large majortity of that is YA and Classics (or anything else that interest me when I pick it up).


Divergent - Veronica Roth

Ok, so I'm finally biting the bullet and reading this book. Some of my friends are really curious why I have waited so long to read this book that they just loved, or more like LOVED!!!! And that is precisely the reason why I have. I'm afraid that this book has too much hype and will not live up to my expectations. I'm also a little afraid that it is too similar to Hunger Games (yes, I know they are the same genre, but I don't want to read the exact same book with different character names). Since I really liked the Hunger Games, I'm afraid if this book, will somehow not live up to what I loved so much about that book. 


However, I still would like to read it before the movie comes out. I much rather read a book first than watch the movie first. Mainly because I feel like movies skip over certain details (yes, as a reader I love the details! Shocker!) that actually play pretty important roles later on in movie/book series. Sometimes if important details are left out, it makes the endings feel rushed or not done in a format that I can live with (that was how the movie version of City of Bones was for me). 


So, here goes. I will let you know how much I liked (or not liked) this book.
