The Exiled Queen (Seven Realms, #2)The Exiled Queen by Cinda Williams Chima

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Really enjoying this series ... Raina, Han, and Amon all experience problems that made for some interesting twists.

I might have the page numbers mixed up ... reading on an e-reader often messes that up.

(p 67) "But it's not enough to know right from wrong. You need the strength to do what's right even when what you want most in the world is the wrong thing."

(p 81) "Rulers don't get to do the easy thing. You don't get to do what you want to do."

(p 212) "You should dress like who you aspire to be."

(p 215) "Killing is one way to handle a rival, but it also shows respect. It shows he's important enough to have a chat with. A better way is to humble him. Make him look a fool. Show him that the price for coming after you is his reputation."

(p 240) "The new dawn found ... [can't say who or it's a spoiler!] awake, exhausted, and completely empty of dreams."

Divergent (Divergent, #1)Divergent by Veronica Roth

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Finished on the plane today. OH MY GOODNESS IT WAS SO GOOD. Don't have any quotes jotted down because it was dark (read on my Nook ... hooray! Great for night flights, not so great for beach reads) and I was barely coherent (flying overnight will do that to you) but this was so good I couldn't put it down even though I was so sleepy.

I won't bother with a plot recap. Just ... READ THIS BOOK!
