Divergent (movie review)


A couple of weekends ago I read the entire Divergent series in 3 days.  (I haven’t written book reviews yet… although I do plan to.)  I really only planned to rush through the first book since I wanted to see the movie so badly… and I refused to see it without having read the book.  […]

Archetype was written by M.D. Waters.  It’s the first book in a series (Is it a series if it’s 2 books?  a duet?  a duo? What is a 2 book series called?) .  Prototype (the “shocking conclusion” to Archetype) is due out in 6 months (July ’14).  The book is Waters’ first novel… and I’m […]
