Books: Summer Reading List

Here is Round 3 of my "Summer Reading List." I Really hope these recommendations are at good use, because if I won a million dollars I would certainly buy myself my very own library. Anyway, take a look below. They are two completely different books, but I love their genres either way.


Four A Divergent Collection by Veronica Roth
Two years before Beatrice Prior made her choice, the sixteen-year-old son of Abnegation's faction leader did the same. Tobias's transfer to Dauntless is a chance to begin again. Here, he will not be called the name his parents gave him. Here, he will not let fear turn him into a cowering child.
Newly christened "Four," he discovers during initiation that he will succeed in Dauntless. Initiation is only the beginning, though; Four must claim his place in the Dauntless hierarchy. His decisions will affect future initiates as well as uncover secrets that could threaten his own future—and the future of the entire faction system.
Two years later, Four is poised to take action, but the course is still unclear. The first new initiate who jumps into the net might change all that. With her, the way to righting their world might become clear. With her, it might become possible to be Tobias once again.



Bridget Jones: Mad About Boy by Helen Fielding
With her hotly anticipated third installment, "Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy," Fielding introduces us to a whole new enticing phase of Bridget's life set in contemporary London, including the challenges of maintaining sex appeal as the years roll by and the nightmare of drunken texting, the skinny jean, the disastrous e-mail cc, total lack of twitter followers, and TVs that need 90 buttons and three remotes to simply turn on.
An uproariously funny novel of modern life, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy, is a triumphant return of our favorite Everywoman.
