I've just discovered "World Without End" by Ken Follett and I've loved it! You couldn't separate me from it until the last pages.
I'm currently reading several books at the same time: The Witching Hour by Anne Rice which is promising yet hasn't succeeded in getting me hooked yet. I'm also reading Watching the English by Kate Fox, really interesting so far.
*looking at the tons of books in the room* There are so many I'd like to be able to read right now !
I've recently finished Divergent by Veronica Roth. It's a dystopian novel I read on Zoe's recommendation and I quite enjoyed it =) I'm planning to borrow the second from her when I see her at the end of the month (oh yeah by the wya Zoe, I'll be up island at the end of the month!). I'd recommend it to any dystopian fans out there, here's the back of the book for you.
In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue--Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is--she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.
I'm also readying Scent of Magic by Maria V. Snyder (my delcious guilty pleasure author) and Palace of Mirrors by Margaret Peterson Haddix (which is the companion novel to Just Ella!).
I've read Delirium Kaitee! At least I'm down to the last few chapters so no spoilers! I absolutely loved it! I thought the concept was such a unique idea and I really liked the main character! I can't wait to read the sequel and would highly recommend it to anyone!
I'm reading The False Prince by Jennifer A Nielsen. It caught my eye during the summer and I have just succeeded in finding myself a copy. Even though it's younger adult fiction I am very much enjoying it! The main character reminds me of a character from another series and the story itself is exciting and interesting.
In a discontent kingdom, civil war is brewing. To unify the divided people, Conner, a nobleman of the court, devises a cunning plan to find an impersonator of the king's long-lost son and install him as a puppet prince. Four orphans are recruited to compete for the role, including a defiant boy named Sage. Sage knows that Conner's motives are more than questionable, yet his life balances on a sword's point -- he must be chosen to play the prince or he will certainly be killed. But Sage's rivals have their own agendas as well.
As Sage moves from a rundown orphanage to Conner's sumptuous palace, layer upon layer of treachery and deceit unfold, until finally, a truth is revealed that, in the end, may very well prove more dangerous than all of the lies taken together.
An extraordinary adventure filled with danger and action, lies and deadly truths that will have readers clinging to the edge of their seats.
