I recommend this to people who didn't like Wicked or want to read a book before Wicked. This is my favorite book by Gregory Maguire.

confessions of an ugly stepsister. All of Gregory Maguire's books I've read have been hard to get into, but they are absolutely fabulous.
#21. "Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister," by Gregory Maguire, is a retelling of the Cinderella story through the eyes of one of her stepsisters. Set in 17th century Holland during the rise and burst of the "tulip mania" economic bubble, it follows the fortunes and complex relationships of a poor English immigrant family, a wealthy Dutch family, and a Dutch painter who specializes in capturing both God's marvels and His mistakes.
Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister: A Novel. This is next on my reading list :D
Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister: Gregory Maguire #leido2014
Is this new land a place where magics really happen? From Gregory Maguire, the acclaimed author of Wicked, comes his much-anticipated second novel, a brilliant and provocative retelling of the timeless Cinderella tale. In the lives of children, pumpkins can turn into coaches, mice and rats into human beings.... When we grow up, we learn that it's far more common for human beings to turn into rats.... We all have heard the story of Cinderella, the beautiful child cast out to slave among the ashes. But what of her stepsisters, the homely pair exiled into ignominy by the fame of their lovely sibling? What fate befell those untouched by beauty . . . and what curses accompanied Cinderella's exquisite looks? Extreme beauty is an affliction. . . Set against the rich backdrop of seventeenth-century Holland, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister tells the story of Iris, an unlikely heroine who finds herself swept from the lowly streets of Haarlem to a strange world of wealth, artifice, and ambition. Iris's path quickly becomes intertwined with that of Clara, the mysterious and unnaturally beautiful girl destined to become her sister. Clara was the prettiest child, but was her life the prettiest tale? While Clara retreats to the cinders of the family hearth, burning all memories of her past, Iris seeks out the shadowy secrets of her new household--and the treacherous truth of her former life. God and Satan snarling at each other like dogs.... Imps and fairy godmotbers trying to undo each other's work. How we try to pin the world between opposite extremes! Far more than a mere fairy-tale, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister is a novel of beauty and betrayal, illusion and understanding, reminding us that deception can be unearthed--and love unveiled--in the most unexpected of places.

My absolute favorite thing is finding a book I can't put down. And reading it until really late at night. And only stopping when my eyes start to hurt and my vision gets blurry from either sleep or strain. And when I put it down I realize how tired I am and fall asleep instantly. In the morning, I wake up and find the first thing I do is pick up the book. And I #read until I'm hungry, or I need to pee. I just love that.
My absolute favorite thing ever. Especially during the summer. I wish I got payed for reading.
Gosh this is me all the time:) yesyesyesyesyes. I don't read books I don't like.

Insurgent by Veronica Roth (Book #2 in the Divergent trilogy) - This is my favorite book of the trilogy, so the movie being totally different was extremely disappointing.. but it is an awesome book.
Insurgent- Veronica Roth Book number 2 of the Divergent series- Another not able to be put down book- loved this series!
Insurgent by Veronica Roth 2012 **** Young Adult. Book 2 of her Divergent Series doesn't disappoint. It is a violent, thrilling, page turner but like most book 2's, it leaves the reader frustrated, full of questions, and checking weekly to see when book 3 comes out!

Divergent - Book Review. Someone told me this was good and a lot like the Hunger Games? Hmm..I think I'll put it on my reading list for the summer.
Divergent (Book 1), by Veronica Roth. Great young adult dystopian novel- very exciting and thrilling with a little bit of cheesy romance.
Divergent book review. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The beginning is very hard to get into, but if you keep reading, you will never be able to put the book down.
February Reading List | Divergent (Veronica Roth): There are several young adult series popular today exploring dystopian themes i.e. Hunger Games. This book by Roth takes place in a post-apocalyptic Chicago divided into five factions based on characteristics admired by society. I have a feeling I will read all 3 books (Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant) in a week.
Divergent (Book 1) by Veronica Roth. I love young-adult books! This dystopian novel is set in a Divergent Universe and a post-apocalyptic version of Chicago. The novel follows Beatrice 'Tris' Prior as she explores her identity within a society that defines its citizens by their personality-related affiliation with five different factions. Just the perfect amount of romance. If you like the Hunger Games, you will love this series! My Rating: 4/5
Next to the Hunger Games series, the Divergent is my favorite dystopian YA book series

It's true!! I've been reading books like 2 novels a week, and my mom won't let me finish the Legend by Marie Lu series, cause I'm a book nerd.
31 Confessions Any Book Lover Will Understand--I actually feel the opposite. A good book doesn't take anything away from you; it rounds you out and makes you whole. Because now you get to be a part of the ideas and characters from the story that you completed :) And that's not losing yourself; that's becoming aware of who you really are.
