WWW & Wishlist Wednesday (06/08)

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme organized by MizB from Should Be Reading. It has you answering the following three questions: What are you currently reading; What did you recently finish and What do you think you’ll read next? To see my previous WWW Wednesday posts, just click this link and it’ll take you to the right page!

gg01WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING? | At the moment, I am reading Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I have to admit, I am not liking it very much yet, but that might change soon. I haven’t read a lot either, because I was busy re-reading Allegiant, but hey, at least I am reading something, haha!

WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH? | I finished Siege & Storm by Leigh Bardugo, which I loved a lot. I posted my review here. I also started and finished re-reading Allegiant by Veronica Roth, and those last couple of chapters still make me cry, u g h. I posted my review of this book, the first time I read it, on my blog as well, in case anyone’s curious!

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT? | Like I said last week, I am planning on re-reading the Maze Runner by James Dashner before the movie comes out, so I guess I’ll do that when I’m finished or at least halfway through Gone Girl. Other than that, I have no idea what I want to read – so if you have any suggestions, leave a comment!

Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop hosted by Pen to Paper, where I’ll post about one book per week that has been on my wishlist for some time, or just added, that I can’t wait to get off the wishlist and onto my shelves.

div01Title: Divergent (IMDb)
Series: Divergent #1
Author: Veronica Roth (book), Neil Burger (director)
Release date: 20 August 2014

In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue–Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is–she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are–and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she’s chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she’s kept hidden from everyone because she’s been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, Tris also learns that her secret might help her save the ones she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

When I saw this movie in the cinema, I knew I had to own it on DVD. I don’t buy DVD’s often, only when I really like the movie; like with the Hunger Games, The Hobbit and Harry Potter (though I still don’t own all HP movies on DVD); and Divergent definitely belongs in that same category. So that is why this week, the Divergent DVD is on my wishlist! (Also I couldn’t think of a book I really wanted at the moment).

What are you reading, what did you recently finish, what do you want to start reading, and what’s the first book on your wishlist? Share your answers in a comment (a link to your blog or just your answers if you don’t have a blog)!
