Top 10 Book Favorites of 2017

I love reading – everything about it! Stories, worlds, characters, bookstores, new book smell, finding written notes on old pages, rereading something and it hitting me the same way it did the very first time — I’ve learned so much from books and have been an avid reader my entire life.

Book Review – Divergent

Title: Divergent Author: Veronica Roth Publisher: HarperCollins, 2012 Pages: Paperback Edition, 487 pages Rating: 4.5/5 I’ve been on a reading kick lately, and I’ve been revisiting my favorite genre in life – YA Fiction.
