Insurgent

This book starts off right where Divergent ended. Tris and Tobias have just finished shutting down the simulation and escaped from Dauntless headquarters, but now they are on the run. They must stay one step ahead of Erudite in order to stay alive. They start out hiding in Amity headquarters, but the rules there are very strict. There is to be no fighting, and both Tris and Tobias know that they really aren't going to be able to not fight, especially with Peter there. Tris catches Peter in her room, he's stealing the hard drive that she's kept the info from the simulation on, it also has video of her father being shot. Tris has had a hard time with her parent's deaths so close together and right in front of her, so this it's devastating for her when Peter steals the hard drive. So much so that she hauls off and hits him...hard. She and Tobias know that that's pretty much the end of their sanctuary with Amity, but it doesn't matter anyway, because before they are able to escape Erudite is right there, and they must escape, this time to Candor. But Tris knows that Candor will make her tell the truth about Will and she hasn't told Tobias yet, let alone his girlfriend and her best friend Christina. Will the truth truly set her free?


I would definitely have to say that I liked Divergent better than Insurgent. I thought that the plot of Divergent was clearer, and I know that I liked the ending of Divergent way better. The ending of this one confused me a bit, I still don't quite understand what Veronica Roth had in mind with the ending of this one, but I hope it will be revealed in the next book!

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …

Can she protect her loved ones’ lives and her heart? You’ll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
