Memorable Monday is hosted by Escape in a Book... a chance to share a very particularly meaningful quote. I rec'd Insurgent this weekend (thx, Honey!) and I've teared up often.
Tris has some difficult struggles in this book, which don't really surprise me. Divergent ended in such a rush of action, there had to be consequences, but Veronica Roth delivers them like blows.
"I lean against the wall, my eyes on the floor. The tiles in the Merciless Mart are always black and white, and here they are in a checkered pattern. If I unfocus my eyes, I see exactly what the Candor don't believe in - gray. Maybe Tobias and I don't believe in it either. Not really.
I weigh too much, more than my frame can support, so much I should fall right through the floor." Pg 212
It's Monday! What are you Reading? is hosted by Book Journey.
And I'm so glad you asked!!! :-D
I had just started Shadow on the Wall on my Nook to review... and I gotta tell ya, it's really great writing, very gritty and full of mystery & pain & seriously bad guys right from the very beginning!!
I had just finished The Lure of Shapinsay, which is another wonderful review surprise. I didn't know anything about Selkies or the folktales of a romantic Lure and beautiful people inside seal skins. Krista delivers this tale... well, I'll have to review it soon, won't I?!
So... when I rec'd Insurgent from my honey - Cool, Man - for Mother's Day, I thought I'd just have the very smallest peek on the first page, you know, just to see what I'd be looking forward to. Just the tiniest, very littlest of peeks!! So, I'm totally innocent that I fell right inside the book. I mean, I never get to read on the weekends (hardly) so getting so much sunshine and reading time was LUXURIOUS and suddenly I find I fell right in and I find myself on Pg 321. Oops?
And next up is Becoming a Butterfly, Eve & Changeless. I think I figured out how to review Changeless... it's gonna be different than my usual. Sort of like my review of Immortal Rules is going to be different. Only... uh, different. I've got a couple of great giveaways comin' up this week, too. So I have lots of posting to do. How fun!!!
I'm going to have to post separately for Monday Mailbox 'cause I got THE WEIRDEST box in the mail from Anna Banks. You're just not going to believe it. She is NUTS!!
No really. She's crazy. And I'm going to share!!!!
