Insurgent
Insurgent by Veronica Roth (Other)
Hmmm....I was a huge fan of Divergent, but a bit disappointed in the second installment. I felt there was constant tension and it felt more like High School drama than a team working for a common goal. Not interested in reading the third installment. -- Added by Spetzie on 02/22/2014

White Fire
White Fire by Douglas Preston (2000s)
This is the 13th in a series, however, this is the first novel by Preston that I've read. An interesting mystery with a tie to Sherlock Holmes. Not sure if I'll read another.....it was ok. -- Added by Spetzie on 02/22/2014

Divergent
Divergent by Veronica Roth (Other)
Very fast paced and a can't put done type of book. In a similar genre as The Hunger Games and looking forward to reading the next book in the series! -- Added by Spetzie on 02/10/2014

A Discovery of Witches
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness (2000s)
On the fantastical realm, which is fairly new to my reading style, and a bit long in parts. At times, I didn't know if it would be worth finishing, but i did. A bit disappointed in the ending, as the story just stopped....should be a second book or I would say that I am very disappointed indeed. -- Added by Spetzie on 02/10/2014

Yes - the second book in the "All Souls Trilogy" came out in 2013. It is entitled "Shadow of Night". I thought it was even better than "A Discovery of Witches" because Dianna and Matthew travel back in time to Elizabethan London - I won't say anymore. I am looking forward to the 3rd book in the trilogy due out in July of this year! -- nkennedy on 02/15/2014  
Code Name Verity
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth E. Wein (1940s)
This book deals with a female spy during WWII and her capture. I wasn't a fan of the book as it never seemed it climax and tended to ramble. However, as I read this for my book club, several ladies really enjoyed the plot line and would recommend....I would not. -- Added by Spetzie on 01/17/2014

Necessary Lies
Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain (1960s)
A story about an impoverished family living in the south in the 60's and how they were treated by the social services system. Interesting how the human element can get lost in how we deal with poverty. A good read. -- Added by Spetzie on 01/17/2014
