Happy Sunday! I haven't done these in a few weeks. I've had a lot of work which is good and I’ve been working really hard to clear out my TBR Piles.

I was very lucky to get a pass to the Los Angeles Times Hero Complex Screening in Burbank on Wednesday. It was such a cool event! Free popcorn & Drinks a limited edition Divergent poster and a Q& A with the Director, Producer and the actor who played Eric. I really loved this movie. I feel a lot of it is do to the Director.

He talked about the detailed conversations he had with Veronica about the society and the motivations of the characters. One thing that I was really pleased to see was the amount racial diversity in the cast. The leader of Dauntless was African- American and there were as noticeable amount of Black, Hispanic and Asian characters through out the cast.

I loved the fact that there was so much diversity it was obvious that the intention was not to just throw a few “token” appearances.

 

Reading Life

My Physical TBR pile is down to 15 . My goal is to finish these by June. With the 24 hour readathon coming in April and the Bout of Books readathon following, I’m confident I can finish these all by the end of April. Also I just passed 100 books for my Goodreads challenge :0

 

Review Books

I’ve been turning down a lot of review books in order to clear out my reading pile, so my current review stack is at a manageable 6 .

Here are the books that came in for review in the past few weeks:

Both of these are from TOR and are continuations of my some of my favorite series
