Happy April, my friends! It is Quick Lit time again, where I share a few short reviews of books I have been reading.
I have been trying to make a concerted effort to read my backlist, but the exciting new releases are sometimes too much temptation for me. There should be some type of 12 step program for this.
Eve and her family already eat pretty healthy when she hears about the dangers of sugar. Since she is looking for a new writing project she talks her family into going without added sugar for a year.

The final book in the Divergent trilogy! While I did not fall in love with the series like a did with The Hunger Games, I had an urgent need to find out what the hell was going on. On a side note, I also read the short story collection Four, which tells some of the stories of the series from Tobias’s perspective. They made me completely fall in love with him.
