I should probably try to make a Life Update Post before 2017 starts. It's been one hell of a year, if you know what I'm saying. But let's start with the easy stuff.

Spoilers, if you can imagine it )
seerofbread: (oh my)
(Whoops I've been inactive again. Will I work on that after this? I don't know, but I REALLY have to whine about this book.)

Minimal spoilers )

Spoiler City )
seerofbread: (2 damn pretty)
Allegiant is the third and final book in the Divergent series by Veronica Roth. It's a relatively standard dystopian thing; my favorite (if rather dismissive) description of the general concept is "Muggles taking Hogwarts houses too seriously." It's gained a lot of popularity, and while it's not without eye-rolling aspects I think that it isn't undeserving of the attention. There'll be a movie out that I probably should look up more about; maybe it'll be fun to do a midnight premiere again.

I don't think there's really a way to be non-spoilery about this sorry. )
Anyway, overall, I definitely liked it. I managed to finish it in two days, which says a bit, I think, given how bloody huge it is. I'm gonna go read some fanfiction now, or maybe write some stuff.
seerofbread: (i did the thing)
Wow I can't believe how long I've been letting these pile up. I meant to have them posted pretty soon after finishing the books, but I didn't? Sigh.

I figure this is as good a way as any to prove my progress on the new years resolution about reading more, so here are the two books I've read for the first time so far. They are Melting Stones by Tamora Pierce and Half Way Home by Hugh Howard, both of which I got for Kindle as Christmas presents. They're both of pretty different genres but I read them in such rapid succession that it would be annoying to make two posts so close together.

Melting Stones: Minimal spoilers )

Melting Stones: Spoiler city )

Half Way Home: Minimal spoilers )

Half Way Home: Spoiler city )

(And those are just the books I read for the first time since the new year. I can't believe how much reading I did over winter break, at least compared to how much reading I'd done in 2013.)
