The Buzz: The Girl of Fire and Thorns

Okay, here I go again, getting all excited about a book I haven't read, but if Veronica Roth is recommending it, I'm in.

The book: The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson


I've actually started reading the end of Divergent (for those who don't know, I tend to save the end of good books that I have trouble parting with. I never want them to be over). My heart sinks a little with each brilliant page, and soon I'll have finished *sad face.* Normally I would just leave it unfinished next to my bed (tempting me each morning and night) but I actually have a few books stacked up that may be good enough to fulfill my need for a page-turning story.

It's strange. I almost feel like I can't write unless I am being inspired by a good book. I was having a bit of a writing lull, but after picking up Divergent again, I wrote 20 pages. I'm about halfway through writing book two in my series CHILDREN OF THE GODS, and I only have 34 pages left in Divergent. *Melodramatic Scream* NO!!!

So, up next to inspire the writing bug in me, Blood Red Road by Moira Young. After that, The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson. After that, Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor.

Thank you YA genre for adding a little spark to my reading life. I'm so grateful for this explosion of awesome stories and characters that suck me into a new world. Whether it's Dystopian, Paranormal, or Fantasy...I love you YA!

Which books are you anxiously awaiting? What is in your TBR (To Be Read) stack right now and why?


  1. I have read so many great reviews for this one.. oh if only I didn't need any sleep... i could get to all these amazing books

  2. I'm currently reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone and her writing just floors me. It's that good :)

    I loved Blood Red Road too. Great choices for inspiration!

  3. I'm just like you! I never want it to be over either. I've put off reading the rest of many novels that way. This one sounds excellent!

  4. Veronica Roth recommended it? Yes please!
