I shared one of our bookshelves already this week, but every month, Modern Mrs. Darcy hosts a Twitterature Link-up as, “a place to share short, casual reviews of books…” There are always plenty of awesome recommendations and reviews, so if you’re looking for suggestions, head on over and hop around!

Here’s What I’ve Been Reading:

the greatest

The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino

This is one of my husband’s favorite books and I hadn’t read it yet! It is a super fast read at about 100 pages, but jam-packed with just how to be the “greatest salesman in the world…” It is a fictional story, but offers unique perspective and wisdom to dwell on. A quick read that leaves you processing long beyond the last page.

I read a lot of non-fiction and then I always come to a point where I want to get lost in some captivating fiction. Gotta love a young adult series…


Divergent by Veronica Roth

This is the first book of the Divergent series (and Roth’s first published work). People keep asking me if it was like the Hunger Games, yes and no. Set in future-Chicago, people are divided into Factions, each valuing certain character attributes higher than others. The reader watches the protagonist make her faction-choice and through the initiation process. #entertainingread


Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Still entertaining, but can’t say much without giving away too much from Divergent.


Allegiant by Veronica Roth

I probably didn’t like the first book quite as much as I loved Hunger Games; however, as a series, I found Roth’s writing a little more on track all the way through. The characters flounder in their consistency a little in the third book, but Love it or Hate it, Agree or Disagree; the ending had me thinking about the series for days.

What did you read this past month?

    If you could please review all books for me, that’d be great. ;) You always have such great suggestions. Although I have to admit, I still do not want to read the Hunger Games. I know, I know. My sisters already yelled at me. Not a fan of Harry Potter either. I’ve just never really gotten in to the fantasy ish books. Because clearly, my fiction books that could never actually happen are more realistic…

      yeah, yeah :) you don’t want to read them, but they are SO so good – especially number one – because I loved putting myself in their shoes and thinking “really, under those circumstances, what would I do?” and it is hard to imagine that it is not that far from the truth for a lot of children around the world. Depressing, but I love observing a person’s character in the midst of dyer circumstances…know what I mean?!

    I just put Divergent on my library list. I’m looking forward to a new series.

    I loved Divergent and Insurgent! Haven’t managed to read Allegiant yet though. I’ve been reading mixed reviews about it!

      Yes, definitely mixed reviews and I had a mixed response myself – but I give it a “worth the read” overall because it left me thinking about it afterward!

    Oooh! I read the first book back when it fist came out, but I should re-read it after all this time. Plus I haven’t read the other two in the series – I keep meaning to put them higher on my to-read list! :)

    As for what I read, I finished The Red Tent and A Million Little Ways this week :) My honey and I just bought 5 Love Languages for the Military on our Kindles – I can’t wait to dive in, as I’ve been saying for quite a while that there needed to be a version of the book for military families! :) That’s what I’m up to these days :) Thanks so much for your post!

      Was A Million Little Ways good? I’ve been seeing that around and hear it is Emily’s best yet! Might have to pick it up soon!
