Smart Pop contains essays on some popular books such as Divergent, Zombies, The Hunger Games, Veronica Mars and FanFiction. Some of the books mentioned in here I have already read, others were already on my to-read list (I’ll get around to it someday!) and others I have since added to the list after reading it. It is a nice compilation of other’s thoughts on what is coming out! I especially loved the write up on Veronica Mars! (I love that series and the first book is on my bedroom floor – otherwise known as my “to read list”!)
I received a free e-copy in order to write this review I was not otherwise compensated.
