In Bookish News, it’s less than a week until the Divergent movie releases here in Australia!! Yay!! I’m going to a media screening on Wednesday night, so I’ll be posting up my thoughts on Thursday. In the mean time, watch these awesome featurettes that have been released in anticipation of the movie.
Kate vs. Shailene:
Take a Stand:
There’s a new Winds of Winter chapter on GRRM’s website. Ignore that it says it posted in Jan 2013, it’s definitely the newest one that went up this week. Martin apparently replaces old excerpts with the new ones on the same post.
Watch the book trailer for Jessica Shirvington’s Disruption!
This week’s reviews:
- [24 Mar] While We Run by Karen Healey ★★★★
- [25 Mar] The Elite by Kiera Cass ★★★

I’m also Waiting On Out Of Control by Sarah Alderson this week!
