Friday Memes 8/21

Book Blogger Hop

The Question:
When you read a book that isn't for review, do you still feel the need to write a review of it? 

My Answer:
When I first started blogging I didn't really but I've been trying to be better about writing reviews for all the books I read. Since I don't have as much reading time anymore I read very few non-review books so reviewing them is pretty easy. I will say while I'm getting better at writing the reviews I need to start being better about posting them. I have a document on my computer that has a bunch of reviews that I wrote but never posted and that needs to change!

"Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name."

I emerge from the simulation with a yell. My lip stings, and when I take my hand away from it, there is blood on my fingertips. I must have bitten it during the test.
Four: A Divergent Collection by Veronica Roth

My Thoughts
Any one who knows anything about the Divergent books can kinda figure out what's going on here but that doesn't make it less of a good beginning!

See, I also don't have a lot of reading time and although I feel like I read a lot, I don't actually manage to post that many reviews! I haven't read Divergent yet, but I have been thoroughly spoiled by friends, even before the films, so I definitely know what's going on here! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!

I review almost everything I read. I am so trying to whittle down TBR mountain. Most of the reading I do for my adult blog is non-review books but almost all the YA reading is books I have for review. My YA Friday pick is Hunter by Mercedes Lackey - a sort of science fiction dystopian. Happy reading!

You can't go wrong with Roth - I'm looking forward to reading the Four: Divergent Collection. :)

Check out my Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings).

A Divergent Collection with Roth, I agree with Lauren, can't go wrong.

I haven't read any of the books in this series, but I've heard good things about them. That's a great beginning that makes me curious about what happens next.
