Divergent by Veronica Roth. I have this one on my TBR mountain and I keep meaning to read it next. But, so far, I have been getting sidetracked by other books. Sheila's praise is really tempting me to move this one up.
The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder because she was in the mood for a novel in verse. I have never read anything by Lisa Schroeder and haven't read a novel in verse for quite a while. I am going to have to check out what Marce has to say about it. I think, however, that this will be one that goes on the order for my high school media center rather than my Amazon order for me.
Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble by H. P. Mallory. I won this in a contest last fall and hadn't picked it up. But, since I got Witchful Thinking from Amazon Vine, I thought I had better get myself up to speed on the series. I wasn't really too impressed with this one but did see some positives that will keep me reading the series. I have book 2 on my Kindle to read before I get to my Vine book.
Dreamland by Alyson Noel. This one has also been sitting on my TBR mountain for a while. I won it last fall too. This is the third in the Riley Bloom series which is Noel's middle grade paranormal series. I liked this story and thought the messages were both positive and woven into the story almost seamlessly. I look forward to sharing this books with my middle schoolers.
So, what did you start out the year with? Did you plan for it or was it an impulse read?
