Divergent, by Veronica Roth

I love books. I don't love reviewing them. But when I read a book as awesome as Veronica Roth's DIVERGENT, I can't help but want to spread the word.

This is the first book I picked up from my summer reading list. A book I was hungry for from the first time I heard of it. And it didn't disappoint.

What I loved about it: I loved the perfectly flawed main character. I loved her painful and scary journey of self discovery. I loved the action and the suspense. I loved the sweet romance that complimented this sometimes jarring and violent tale. And I loved that this story kept my attention from start to finish. I think I read it in three sittings.

What it reminded me of: The writing style and feel of the story reminded me of one of my favorites: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. If you are a fan of The Hunger Games books, you will probably love DIVERGENT.

Anyone who reads YA fiction should see the book trailer and then read this book! If you doubt me, you can read the first 100 pages here.


  1. I have not read the whole book yet, but I really enjoyed the first 100 pages.

    Roth's style is very compelling!


  2. Oh, I keep hearing Hunger games comparisons. I guess I will have to order it ASAP!

  3. You will not be disappointed!


I would love to hear from you!
