all my friends are superheroesAll  My Friends Are Superheroes  by Andrew Kaufman (Kindle Edition)

Pages, (108), days to Read (13), Rating (2/5)

Loved the idea of this; having friends that have superpowers – ace but aside from the superhero stuff there wasn’t much substance to this. Such a shame.

Allegiant_DemiJacket_WetProofTest.inddAllegiant by Veronica Roth (US Hardback edition)

Pages (562), Day to Read (4), Rating (3/5)

I really wanted to like this. I had my fingers crossed for the Divergent trilogy to go out with a bang, but alas. There really wasn’t much point to this book, for me, the storyline was muddled and I felt like it wasn’t goin anywhere. AND the ending!!!!!

April 16th – April 18th
