To Read: I Am Number Four

Every time I reference books on this site, several of you pop up with suggestions of books to read. OR, you ask me for suggestions. OR, we just flat out discuss how we should start a book club. And you know what? I say let’s do it.

I’m reading I Am Number Four again before the movie comes out. So, I thought I’d put it out there to see if anyone else wanted to join me.

I read this after Mockingjay, which I ended up being a bit disappointed in. (Short explanation: It had some of my favorite parts of the entire series, but I felt the last 1/4 of it was rushed and many deaths didn’t get the attention I felt they deserved.) The book you read after a dispapointing read? Is often harsher critqued, at least in my case, because you find yourself looking for that book to carry it’s own weight and the weight of the last book you read.

I Am Number Four did that.

It is a series, but the “ending” was suitable. It wasn’t a crazy cliffhanger that makes you irritated you can’t just pick up the next one. And the next one comes out this summer, which isn’t too long to wait.

I really enjoyed it, which is why I’m suggesting it to you guys. I would be nervous to try this with a book I hadn’t read. It’s an easy read which is the only reason I’m cramming it in. On February 15th I’ll post the “review” entry where we can discuss the book on this site. Giving us 3 days to hash it out before seeing it on the big screen! (If you live in Huntsville and want to be part of our group to see the movie, let me know!)
