Books I've Read: January 2014

Divergent (Divergent #1) by Veronica Roth (ebook). I thought this was a really quick and exciting read (I was even tempted to hide during a New Year's party to finish it, but I didn't). It had a similar feel to The Hunger Games trilogy, which I loved. I'm really into the teen dystopia novels lately, which my husband is always teasing me about, but they really hold my attention and I like the different worlds and rules that are created within that genre.  The competitive side of me really enjoyed the initiation process that Tris and the Dauntless went through, and I'm always a sucker for a good love story.

22 Days To A Fresh Start by Tiffany Terczak (ebook). I got this for free for subscribing to one of the blogs I've been following for awhile (I subscribed to enter to win a blender).  This was a series that ran on the blog last year, only prettified for the ebook, but I re-read it as a reminder of the good tips that are in there for switching to a real food diet on a budget.  It's short and free, so if you want, go subscribe and read it too.

From my ebook bundle:
  • Become A Frugalista In 30 Days by Susan Heid. This was a good overall saving money guide for someone who is just starting to look into different ways to save, but since I've been working on that for over 4 years, I didn't find much new in this one.
  • Finding Financial Freedom by Kelly Crawford. This one was really short, and my basic takeaway was that she likes Dave Ramsey, because she focused on funding a $1,000 emergency fund and paying off debts with the snowball method.
And the verdict is...all ebooks this month.  I read most of my books on my kindle or my computer nowadays, but I do have a few paper copies of books that I'd like to read sometime soonish.  Hopefully I can read a few more next month than this month, although I did tackle a huge pile of magazines this month too...
