“There was a hunger inside me, and there always had been. That hunger was stronger than pain, stronger than horror. It gnawed even after everything else inside me had given up. It was not hope; it did not soar; it slithered, clawed, and dragged, and it would not let me stop”

Anyone else notice that thrift books quietly changed Canada/UK shipping without saying anything. From $3.99 a book to I guess $8.99 guess I won't be buying books from them anymore.

The world makes no sense, characters act contrary to their motivations just to advance the plot, and the writing is muddled. I'm not going to be a fan, I'm afraid. I wondered, and now I know.

rretzler That‘s too bad. I have this one coming up later this year. I was afraid that I might think the same, so I haven‘t purchased the next one in the series yet 7mo

There were lots of things I loved about this book, like how you start the book with one culture‘s PoV and then switch to the other culture‘s PoV. It was an awesome way to show how perspective plays such a role in how we define good and evil. I also liked the characters and the world and idea of the current. That said, I feel like the book didn‘t quite maximize on its strengths to its fullest. Regardless, I liked this much more than Divergent :D

To be fair, I started this story with super high hopes since I was such a big fan of the Divergent trilogy. The story was good. I enjoyed it. I just didn‘t fall head over heels in love with it. The sneak peek of the second #audiobook was intriguing. Reviews have hinted that book 2 is stronger than book 1 so I may give that one a try, too. #ya

Y‘all, I really wanted this book to be good. I wanted it to be good representation of chronic pain. And there were occasionally good moments. But most of the disability rep, in the form of Cyra, was dreck and ableist. It makes me sad more than angry; it makes me tired. #MastersResearch

She said it with absolute conviction, like her belief in her own monstrousness was a religion, and maybe it was the closest thing to religion she had.

I enjoyed it more the first time around, but I think that's because I'm having trouble focusing on audio books these days. I had to re-read it as a refresher for the new one. I could relate a lot to one character's pain.

I know a lot of people said a lot of bad things about this book, but I loved it. It's basically a romance though, I thought I was buying fantasy... But yeah, this is a space romance. I finished last night and I'm still not sure I know what the plot is, but I don't even care. Went out and got book 2 today. Fun and easy to read.

Inizio a parlarvi del primo capitolo della nuova saga della Roth. Un po' complesso, ma la storia è interessante. Spero che il secondo volume sia più leggero, avendo spiegato in questo libro un po' tutta la storia dei vari popoli protagonisti. Più tardi lo comincerò a leggere..

Inizio una lettura che avrei dovuto fare quando uscì, ma che ho sempre rimandato; così da poter scoprire anche il secondo volume! 😉
L'altra serie dell'autrice mi era piaciuta parecchio (anche il finale), vi dirò se anche questa mi conquista 😊
A voi è piaciuta?
O siete rimasti al fatto che mi sia piaciuta la fine della serie Divergent e mi odiate?! 😅😂

This book had a slow start for me. It almost didn't keep my interest enough that I almost DNF it. But I continued reading. I didn't really get into it until probably about halfway through. Then it started to pick up and get really good. It was hard to put down after that point. I liked it enough in the end that I do want to read the 2nd book to see where the story goes. So there's that at least. I'll give this book 3 1/2 stars.

I have to be honest, this one's just not grabbing me. I'm only on page 125 though. I'd really, really hate to DNF it. I'm so disappointed 😕. I was really excited to read this one! But, I'm going to keep reading and hope it gets better! I seen a few reviews that said it had a slow start but gets better the further you read so hopefully that happens for me!

Marla I hope it gets better too. I‘m about in the same spot as you. 1y

Book mail 🖤 I got this in HB when it first came out but passed it onto a friend before I‘d had chance to finish it. Now it‘s out in PB (my preference) I‘ve repurchased it so I may finish it and get the sequel. Have you read this one? What were your thoughts? There was some crazy CRAZY controversy when it first came out that had me bashing my head against the wall. #yafantasy #fantasy #scififantasy #bookblogger #booklover #bookaddict #bibliophile

CaitlinR Yeah, reviewers thought the non-white characters were stereotyped. Haven‘t read it tho‘ 2y
Sophoclessweetheart @CaitlinR I hadn‘t even heard that! Guess there was even more controversy than I thought 😅💁🏼‍♀️ I found masses of preteens author shaming because of the way Ross used her Chronic Pain Disorder as influence for the magical abilities in the book. They said she didn‘t really have CPD and was just being ableist about self harm and all sorts. It was crazy! 2y

The Walmart by me has been quite surprising with the books its had lately! Grabbed these 2 up tonight on my late night run there. Carve the Mark has been on my TBR and has sat in my cart's save for later pile for a good minute now. So I was pretty stoked to see it and the 2nd book, signed first edition at that! 😁
Keep it up Walmart's teeny, tiny little book area that sells a couple books, you did good tonight!

After finishing the book I can say I‘d definitely pick up the sequel, but I don‘t know if this is one I‘d rec to anyone at work (I work in a bookstore). I almost gave up after the first few chapters, and I‘m not a huge fan of Roth‘s writing style, but this is a huge improvement from the Divergent series. #carvethemark

In 2017, I gave this book 5 stars. Upon a second read, I can see why. Veronica Roth is a good writer. She knows to build a world you would never ever want to live in and the she draws you in, convincing you you‘re a fighter, inspiring you to be the character to make it a world worth living in. Of course, this book lacks Four. But even without him, it‘s still a bloody good read!

I loved everything in this book from the characters to the descriptions to the writing in general. Though with most books I had some problems but they were easily overlook. In the beginning the romance seemed forced but it grew on me. Overall an awesome book from Veronica Roth.

Reading #mounttbr from kindle while on vacation in Portland. I did not love the beginning of this book, and parts of it are typical YA, but I ended up liking the characters even in their stereotypes. It has some concepts I enjoyed very much so it‘s a pick overall.
