from a tuesday
We hung outside on a blanket yesterday so I could read a book and ignore EZ while he ate grass and rolled all around the yard entertaining himself. Ignore might be too strong. Or might not.
Last week I read The Giver. Yesterday I read Divergent (cover to cover in a day... I was really into it.) We've seen The Hunger Games movie twice since opening night.
I'm trying to figure out what it means that I've read these types of books lately. These __topia books. Rule abiding societies that are usually on the verge of chaos/war/revolution.
My dreams (and thoughts?) have been really crazy.
what faction will EZ choose? can he avoid the reaping? will he always tell me the truth? what about his memories? what about his choices? what will his fears look like?
Really rational things, obviously.
Any other Divergent readers? The queen bee of reading & writing, Gretchen, recommended it to me and I'm so very glad she did. Next up is The Fault in Our Stars also recommended by the Bee, so I'm sure it'll be good. (And she's just a Bee. Not a B. Love you, Grrrretch! Now please write a blog post about Divergent so I can pretend I wrote about it coherently & hilariously like you would.)
2012 will probably be known as the year I got my reading back.
