Sunny Hope you enjoy this one. I put it right up with Prized and Birthmarked as favorite reads of last year.

Caragh Sunny,
Thanks for the kind words.
I did enjoy it. I found Divergent to be an interesting, uncomfortable exploration of pain and fear. I feel like I've been underground for a long time, and I expect the book will keep me puzzling. Good stuff.
It's cool you liked it, too.
All best,

Elizabeth When I read it it tied with Birthmarked as my favorite book.

Caragh Elizabeth,
That's cool. Thanks!

Elizabeth Oh there is another book you HAVE to read, Theft of Swords (The Riyria Revelations, #1-2) by Michael J. Sullivan

Funny, I have had that book in my library forever. I liked Maggie Stievater's Scorpio Races and have heard great things about it. What do you like most about that book?

Caragh It's sweetly, gently romantic and I was really ready for something like that.

Thanks, I'm glad I recommended it to my 14 year old niece since I really liked Scorpio Races. This took place after her mother and I had a long discussion about the themes in Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1) by Jamie McGuire which my niece read a summer camp. I don't want to be the arbiter of "appropriateness" for a 14 year old, but I am advocate for discussion.
