As you can tell by the title, I have decided to join the 30 Day Book Challenge! I am super excited to do this, and I think it is really interesting to read everyone’s different take on this. No worries, I’m not stopping the rest of my book reviews or anything else. Just adding a little something! I’ll try to do this every day, but I can’t promise anything. Sometimes I just need a day off. 🙂 I think this was created by A Novel Place! To see her blog, click here.
This is probably tied with I Capture the Castle for my favorite book ever! But since I expect to be reusing books, especially I Capture the Castle, I used Fire instead. Once I reread this, I’ll do a review of it. But basically, it is about a girl-monster named Fire who is extremely beautiful. This particular “monster” is the only human monster left. Monsters are seen as a danger to society because they can control humans’ minds. Fire decides that she doesn’t want to use her beauty to control people, yet she is still shunned. This is her journey of using her powers for the good of her country, and inspiring hope in a war-ravaged world. It could be seen as a love story (and even though it is not meant to be one, it is one of my favorites). I LOVE this book, I reread my copy probably about once every 2 months at least. So if you haven’t read this yet, DO IT!
Update- LOVING The Princess of the Midnight Ball! And I called my local Barnes and Noble and ordered a paperback copy of Divergent! It ought to be there in 3-4 business days! Well worth waiting while listening to elevator music! 😀 I can’t wait to read it!
