    Both are great stories, I enjoyed reading them, the hunger games series is great but I didnt enjoy the last book as much, its very slow to start and then at the end its like the author got bored and wanted to finish it quick so everything happens so fast I missed some things lol. Definitely worth a read though.

    Im reading the divergent series again now, up to the last book, and still loving it.

    I've seen all the movies out so far.

    Love the hunger games movies though mocking jay part 1 was a bit slow I thought so that seems in line with the book then.

    I've also been spoiled for the last book of divergent! And I wasn't very impressed with the movie.

    I think I'm just having trouble picking these two series up because I've already seen the movies and it's hard to invest into the books if I already know what to expect but I've heard such great things.

    4. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy by John Le Carre

    Can't believe it took me so long to read Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. January feels like a bit of a blur. I think going back to work three days a week has left me too tired at night to even read.

    Just starting The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan, book 2 of The Wheel of Time series.

    Loved it and it's getting turning into a movie which I'm excited about .

    I'm currently reading These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. I'm half way and so far it's so good. It's young adult sci fi. I must admit I havn't read a lot of sci fi but the storyline is unique.

    I'm a bit slow to jump on this thread but here's my list so far (it's not very impressive as I don't always find the time to read, as much as I love it)

    1. Proof of Heaven - Eben Alexander M.D actually only got about halfway I found it quite boring
    2/3 The Rosie Project & The Rosie Effect - Graeme Simsion both brilliant, light hearted easy to read books.

    Now I just need to decide on my next book. Any suggestions? Something easy as I'm due for baby #4 any day now!
