Last few books. . .

I have been really bad about posting lately, as I am sure if you look at my blog have noticed. Here is a quick update.  Michael and I are back to school and both working.  Michael is still working at the preschool, which he loves and I am still at Costco.
Since reading Shadow of the Hegemon I have read Shadow Puppets, Shadow of the Giant, Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, and Children of the Mind all by Orson Scott Card. Also if you saw my last post I just finished Divergent. I recommend reading the Ender and Bean series but be aware it takes a lot of time.  There are even some short stories that are apart of this series that I haven't read yet, but I need a break for now.


I final finish the Ender's Game series, which I loved, but was a long read.  I wanted something that was quick and consuming for my next read and I found it.  Divergent only took me a few days to read and it only took me that long because I have a life that needs a lot of my attention. 
I really enjoyed this book. It is a lot like the Hunger Games, in the future, part of a three book series (the last one isn't out yet), and a strong girl as the main character. Plus there is a love interest. There are plans on it being a movie series after they finish the Hunger Games movies, so if you want to be a head of the craze go read it now. The second book is waiting for me as I speak, so I got to go. :)
