Divergent by Veronica Roth

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.

I have heard about this book for a while and bought it back in beginning of March as it sounded like a book for me. I was not disappointed. It is an exciting fast paced book  and I never knew in which direction it would go next. I read until after 2am this morning just to finish it and one of the first things I have done today is to buy the sequel Insurgent. I have decided not to read it right away, then I have a book I really look forward to.

  1. So when will you be reading book 2. I have both on my iphone as audio files. I need to listen to them, but just always have something more pressing to read first. I have a lot of review book obligations.

  2. I think I will either read it in December or maybe in the beginning of the new Year. I am looking forward to it.
