Outpost

I am late in posting this since I finished this book several weeks ago, but I was busy and it was hard trying to find time to write a review. This is the sequel to Enclave.

Synopsis: Down below, she was considered an adult. Now, topside in a town called Salvation, she’s a brat in need of training in the eyes of the townsfolk. She doesn't fit in with the other girls: Deuce only knows how to fight.

To make matters worse, her Hunter partner, Fade, keeps Deuce at a distance. Her feelings for Fade haven’t changed, but he seems not to want her around anymore. Confused and lonely, she starts looking for a way out.

Deuce signs up to serve in the summer patrols—those who make sure the planters can work the fields without danger. It should be routine, but things have been changing on the surface, just as they did below ground. The Freaks have grown smarter. They’re watching. Waiting. Planning. The monsters don’t intend to let Salvation survive, and it may take a girl like Deuce to turn back the tide. (Taken from Goodreads).

Review:actually began reading this book and forgot who people where and how the first book ended. It took a few chapters and Deuce going back to the past for me to remember all the details. I am not sure if the first book just had no lasting impression on me, or if I just needed a recap sooner in the book. 

Overall the book was good and I think it had a lot of good elements. I was surprise that the romance did not bother me as much as I thought it would. I can see where Deuce is coming from finally feeling love and understanding what many of us take for granted and wanting to be able to be herself no matter what other's think of her. 

What surprised me is that the events and things happening in the town were bases on things that really did happen. I was shocked to discover that, but then again I feel that many people write things based on some kind of truth. 

I am looking forward to the next book to see what happens. There is a lot to learn and I feel that Outpost just kind of ended where it could of gone on a little bit more.

Hopefully I will be able to do this once a week, but if not well lets hope I do a better job this year. I was able to get 5 books read this month and hopefully I can continue to do so. Here's my list.

Sedona Through Time by Wayne Ranney
Divergent by Veronica Roth
The Zona by Nathan Yocum
The Kill Order by James Dashner
Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Pretty interesting list. I hope to finish more and if I can do this well I will change my goal of 20 books to 50.

Insurgent

Shortly after  I finished Divergent I bought Insurgent on my kindle so I could continue the story. I know the 3rd book comes out this year, but I needed to see what happened next.

SynopsisOne choice can transform you--or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves--and herself--while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable--and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so. (Taken from GoodReads). 

Review: I was very happy with this book. I flew through it very quickly and I was very impressed by it. I felt that Tris was still like a fictional version of me and I was thinking the entire book if I would make the same choices as Tris did. 

There were more twists and turns in this book that I did not see coming. I never knew what was going to happen next which is a good thing for me. If I see something coming I get bored with the book.
