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:

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

Happily Ever After

Fifty Shades Freed

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
