Summer Reading Update

Couple of days ago I posted about Summer Reading (see blog post here:

Update:  I finished the The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls: A Novel as well as Divergent and now I'm on to Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns.  Yonahlossee was OK, it kind of fizzled at the end; everything was tied up in a neat little bow.  Not sure how I feel about Divergent.  As I read it, I couldn't help feel like it was a wanna-be Hunger Games.  I'll see the series through and will read books #2 and #3 (I believe book #3 is set for a 2014 release).  Interestingly enough, Entertainment Weekly just did a feature article on the movie currently being filmed in Chicago.  The article actually helped me understand the direction of the books and the characters a little bit better.  And the Prada sequel is all over the place and Andi is kinda psycho and really insecure.  I usually don't read Goodreads reviews before I purchase a book because I like to form my own opinion.  I kind of regret not doing some research prior to pre-ordering this book on my Nook.  So far, I'm not that impressed.

I thought the same about the first Devil Wears Prada book, though I liked the movie-it's usually the other way around.
