It’s Monday! What are you reading?

It’s Monday! What are you reading is hosted by Book Journey.

Last week I started the Divergent series by Veronica Roth. While I thought that Divergent and Insurgent were pretty decent, I am hesitant about reading the third book in the trilogy. I had to ask myself if I would have read the book if I had not read the spoilers. And the answer is Yes…I can’t just not finish the trilogy, even though I’m not overly excited about a particular event in the book. If I not read the spoilers, I wouldn’t have known about that event and would’ve been “UUUGGGHHH!!!” when I did read about the event. So I’m going to read Allegiant and be all “uugghh!” because it’s not a surprise and I’ll finish the trilogy and post my thoughts about Allegiant when I’m done.

Before I started this post, I checked my place in line for Allegiant and I am 2 out of 42. So I’m going to hope that I’ll be reading Allegiant before the week is over. Given my earlier rant about Allegiant, um, yay?! I’ll be reading the book.

So today I’m reading:
Carter Finally Gets It (Carter Finally Gets It, #1)Carter Finally Gets It by Brent Crawford

Format: Audiobook, Digital Download, Unabridged
Published: April 7th 2009 by Brilliance Audio (first published April 1st 2009)
Source: Sync (SYNC offers free Young Adult & Classic audiobook downloads in the summer months to introduce the listening experience.)

Summary: Meet Will Carter, but feel free to call him Carter. (Yes, he knows it’s a lazy nickname, but he didn’t have much say in the matter.)

Here are five things you should know about him:

1. He has a stuttering problem, particularly around boobs and belly buttons.

2. He battles Attention Deficit Disorder every minute of every day unless he gets distracted.

3. He’s a virgin, mostly because he’s no good at talking to girls (see number 1).

4. He’s about to start high school.

5. He’s totally not ready.

Join Carter for his freshman year, where he’ll search for sex, love, and acceptance anywhere he can find it. In the process, he’ll almost kill a trombone player, face off with his greatest nemesis, suffer a lot of blood loss, narrowly escape death, run from the cops (not once, but twice), get caught up in a messy love triangle, meet his match in the form of a curvy drill teamer, and surprise the hell out of everyone, including himself.

What I plan to read this week:

Allegiant (Divergent, #3)Allegiant by Veronica Roth

Format: Kindle Edition, 526 pages

Published: October 22nd 2013 by Katherine Tegen Books

Source: The local library

Summary: The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.
