What We Read: {Divergent}

Welp. I have another book review for you guys!

We actually finished this one over a month ago, but I'm just getting around to sharing the wonderfulness of this book...


I loved this book.

It's not quite as good as The Maze Runner series or The Hunger Games series, but it is definitely worth the read.

Its all the same idea as those other books. You know the dystopian type that seem all the rage these days.

Who needs vampires when you have psycho controlling futuristic societies?!

Here is the synopsis from the authors website...

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves… or it might destroy her.
And the sequel Insurgent comes out in 19 days...so you better hurry up and get your read on.
