Beastly by Alex Flinn, Saw the movie and wanted to read the book. Cute twist on the Beauty and the Beast story told through the Beast's POV. Drezny
Beastly by Alex Flinn Modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Don't judge this book by the movie-- it's actually quite well-done. PG
Beastly by Alex Flinn. This was an amazing book, I was hooked the whole way through! The movie was cute too, despite Vanessa Hudgens being in it.
Beastly by Alex Flinn (Grades 8 & up). A modern retelling of "Beauty and the Beast" from the point of view of the Beast, a vain Manhattan private school student who is turned into a monster and must find true love before he can return to his human form. Movie made in 2011.
Beastly by Alex Flinn. A new twist to beauty and the beast from the beast's point of view. I will be looking this up at the library =o)
Beastly By Alex Flinn - way better than the movie. I love Alex Flinn's books, she writes a lot of re-imagined fairy tales.

Divergent (BOOK)--In a future Chicago, Beatrice Prior must choose among five predetermined factions to define her identity for the rest of her life, a decision made more difficult when she discovers that she does not fit into any one group.
Divergent. An amazing start to the series! Veronica Roth is an awesome author. This is one of the best books I have ever read!
The new Hunger Games, but Divergent may actually may be better than the Hunger Games, which it why they will probably become known as the predecesser to Divergent
Divergent - 1. Up front, I did not like these novels (two out of three to date.) I found the world building poor, the plot devices undeveloped and the characters flat. I am in the minority. Those longing to more Hunger Games novels will probably cling to this poor dystopian subsitute, that is less interesting, poorly written and conceived and has not nearly the social message. Its also more violent (violence happens on page, as opposed to Collins' more effective suggestion of violence), 15+
Divergent by Veronica Roth. If you like the Hunger Games, this is the book for you.

The Maze Runner (Book 1) by James Dashner. I saw the movie last week and it was so amazing! Now I just really want to read the book too. I absolutely loved how curious the story made me... It kind of had a mystery feel, which I really like :) I can't wait for the second movie to come out!
Book Review: The Maze Runner by James Dashner - the latest young adult dystopian series that is being made into a movie. This is a good addition to the young adult dystopian book world. It has real contributions without being just a knock off Hunger Games. In spite of the cliff hanger, there is a real conclusion to the book. (click through for the full review)

The Hunger Games Triology by Suzanne Collins. In my top 10 list of books worth reading. Soon in theaters!
The Hunger Games is a great read and turned out better than I expected. The main characters are complex and the story is very multi-dimensional. Going to see the movie this afternoon! #hungergames #thehungergames
Suzanne Collins - The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1) - Not sure if I'm going to make it all the way through this one but at least wanted to try before the movie came out.
Pick for the week of 3/16/2015: "Favorite Book that is #1 in a Series" Bonnie: The Hunger Games (Book 1) by Suzanne Collins
My favorite book trilogy! A must read, especially if you plan to see the movies. 1st book: The Hunger Games, 2nd book: Catching Fire, 3rd book: Mockingjay.
The Hunger Games (Book 1) by Suzanne Collins. I gobbled this one up in about three days. Wish I had read it before I saw the movie, though!
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. another book on my top ten list of all time favorite books. Its disturbing in the best possible way. Its a series that doesn't coddle you and isn't coated in sugar like many of the recent young adult litereature(Twilight). Its gritty and grim, and will leave you worn out from an emotional roller coaster. It has a depth to it that many YA fiction authors are afraid to use. And speaking of YA Fiction, this series isn't limited to youth, it can touch those of any age. Definitely a series worth reading.

#UWBookMadness The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky | Category: Books in the Movies | Charlie might sound a little familiar. He's shy, but not unbearably dorky; he's smart and sensitive, but not telling the world. He might spend too much time analyzing his life while at the same time hoping the problems just go away. In short, he's a lot like any number of us who have made it through our teen years. Through letters to an unnamed friend we begin to see a complex, unique teen emerge.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower one of my favorite books!!!
