Must-Read Monday {Spring Break Edition}

Finally.  I am on Spring Break.  Finally.  And that, folks, is why this linky is a bit late being posted yesterday.  Mr. Madden and I went to The Masters yesterday (blog post about THAT tomorrow).  It wore me out.  Let's just say I haven't been outdoors that long since the beach last summer.  An outdoor girl I am not.  So, last night, when we go home I crashed.  And, this morning I slept late, showered late (I'm proud I actually did that), and have been slow going.  My entire spring break cannot be like this.  My to-do list is WAY too long for that.  But day one, I'm letting myself relax.

With that said, I'm starting a new book.  A WHAT?  Yep.  A book.  Just for me.  I love summer when I'm able to read several books a week.  I'm hoping to get through a couple this week.  We'll see.

First up.
I read the first two books long ago, but the third book wasn't out yet.  And, well, it's been buried on my to-read list since then.  Since I saw the Divergent movie last week, I'm inspired to dig this one from the pile and jump in!  I've heard of people being disappointed in this one, but I'm hopeful.

I'm not sure what I'll read next.  I really want a "can't-put-it-down" series.  I'm a HUGE suspense fan (think Gone Girl), so if you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!

What are you reading this week?

  1. I recommend Defending Jacob by William Landay and The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty - both very good

  2. I agree with Defending Jacob. I loved Gone Girl and thought Defending Jacob was just as good.

  3. I loved the Divergent series, but I was definitely disappointed in the ending! I can't wait to see what your thoughts are about it!

  4. I read the third one in the Divergent series over our Spring Break too. Didn't like it much at all! Agree with Mrs. B. Didn't like the ending!!

  5. I can't wait to read what you think about Allegiant. I liked it better than Insurgent but wasn't too pleased with the ending! Gone Girl is next on my list... can't wait to read it! i am a huge advocate for Jodi Picoult books. I CANNOT put one down after I start reading. My favorites are Nineteen Minutes and House Rules.

    I also recommend The Maze Runner series (James Dashner) if you enjoyed Hunger Games and Divergent! The first Maze Runner movie is coming out in September so it would be a perfect time to read the book!

    I hope you are enjoying your spring break.
