This week I got two new books. First up I got Four by Veronica Roth. I must admit I have only read Divergent and Insurgent, and will NEVER read Allegiant. I know the ending and I do not want to waste my life on that book. That being said, I hope I can follow along with Four's stories. I am hoping that most of the scenes from his point of view are from the first two books.
Second I got The Tale of Despereaux, by Kate DiCamillo, from Audible. Over the years I have heard nothing but great things about this book and I finally decided to see what all the fuss is about. Of course I have seen the movie, but books are always better than the movie.
A side note for aspiring authors. When Kate was submitting to agents she received close to 400 rejections. She later went on to win a Newbery Award for The Tale of Despereaux and a Newbery Honor for Because of Winn Dixie.
