Forgotten by Cat Patrick

Title:  Forgotten
Author: Cat Patrick
Genre: Realistic
Pages: 304
My rating:

As soon as I started to read this my sixth sense told me it was a good book. I haven't been very lucky with choosing good books this year (although it's only the beginning)I just can't quite find the right book for me. However I was wrong, the book I need was right in front of my eyes.
   I have waited a long time to read this book, but as soon as I got it I didn't expect it to be this good. It took me less than a week to read it and I was gripped from the start. The thing about this book is that it doesn't give the plot and the storyline all away at once, the first chapter is quite confusing if you don't know what is going on but the blurb tells you most of that. Each chapter mostly revels something new that you didn't know, which the author does to keep you hooked. It certainly worked for me.

This book is about a teenage girl called London. Every day at 4.33 AM she forgets her past. She keeps notes on her bedside unit to remind her what happened the day before. Her life is repetative until she meets Luke for the first time. He's her personal weirdo. Her hot weirdo. She's afraid to tell him the truth and she realizes she can't even trust herself anymore. Her life is run by lies and she doesn't know who to trust. Maybe people are keeping more darker secrets than she could ever imagen. The chapters are short so you don't get bored easily and the writing is fluent and gripping. A very good read that I would recommend to anyone that enjoys reading!

Divergent by Veronica Roth

Title: Divergent
Author: Veronica Roth
Pages: 487
Genre: Dystopia

My Rating:
5 stars

I sometimes get put of by long books, whenever I read them they just seem to take forever. But this, this book is AMAZING!!! Words actually can't describe how good it is. I'm so glad that this is a trilogy. I keep wondering what's going to happen next. The plot isn't that obvious either unlike Twilight when you could practically guess what was going to happen next ut in this book it's not as obvious.

The main plot is that there are 5 different societies and when you are a certain age you can choose which one you want to go to, however not before you've done tests on what they think your society is. Beatrice Prior has her turn to choose but she is divergent - a girl that does not belong in any of the societies so she must choose her future wisely.

I can't wait for there to be a film (apparently in 2015) which is aggggeeeeessssss...
And I cannot wait for the next two books.
Oh, and if you are a member on GoodReads then you probably know that this book won Book of the Year 2011!!!
