I had a goal to read one book a month, but eight books actually impressed me regardless. However, I’m bringing back that goal this year. The next three months have been drafted as such:

January:
Already read: Adulting
To read: Mindless Eating
Salt, Sugar and Fat

February:
Happily Ever After

March:
Fifty Shades Freed
Insurgent

That’s obviously six books, but I’m really trying to put in time for reading. So we shall see what happens!

Divergent Book Review

I started reading Divergent in my undergrad, about junior year. I made it probably one chapter before I got distracted with life. Fast forward two years and I picked it back up and read the whole thing within a week’s time. What an amazing read! At the beginning and maybe still, some of the people confused me. There are a lot of characters to keep straight. The movie will help me with that one, which is why I am going to wait to read the second book until I see the first movie.

I absolutely LOVE the relationship created between Tris and Four. Sorry, not sorry. I’m a sucker for love and they are just too cute. Don’t let this push you away from reading if you are thinking, “Welp, don’t want to read a cheesy romantic chick book.” Because even though relationships form in the book, there is so much action that takes place and a whole different story line, that you can buff through that romance part.

I don’t want to talk much about the plot because I don’t want to ruin it if you plan to read the book (Which you should!) I just wanted to put my $0.02 in and say it was a great read and I’m really excited to read the second one!

I’ve now moved onto my second book: Save as Draft by Cavanaugh Lee

I have a few other books I picked up from the library, so hopefully I can quickly read through those because in two weeks I will be starting on a more educational read that I will kindly take notes and share with my coworkers a short synopsis. It is called Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us by Michael Moss
