Book Club: Divergent

Here’s to books, the cheapest vacation you can buy.
— Charlaine Harris


As part of my new year’s resolutions is to read more…well I’ll be honest here I just need to start reading! My sister is a little book worm and has always tried to push books on to me to read so I have decided to actually read them, how thoughtful of me. As motivation for me to keep this up I am going to (try my very best) do a book review once a month on this blog reviewing a book I have and one which I think you will like as well.
The first book I am going to review in 2014 is *drumroll* Divergent by Veronica Roth, OH MY GOD THIS BOOK IS AMAZING! I’ll admit it isn’t the highest quality book on the brain stimulating side but it got me finding it hard to put it down and if that isn’t a sign of a book then I don’t know what is. If you liked the Hunger Games books then you will love this, it is the first of a trilogy and is going to be made into a film this year which I cannot wait for! I’ll leave a link for the trailer down below if you want to take a wee look at that.
Not giving too much away, Divergent is about 16 year old Beatrice who lives in a futuristic world which is split into 4 factions. When you turn 16 you have to choose which faction you want to spend the rest of your life in, you can either stay in your faction or move to a different or join factionless which are a population who either make it into a faction or choose to live there. The story starts with Beatrice making her decision with the help of a simulation test which is supposed to give you a clear idea of which faction you live in but things don’t go too smoothing for dear Beatrice…
Over Christmas I read both Divergent and the second in the trilogy Insurgent which is equally as good so go read it! If you do read it or you have already read it please tell me below what you thought of it. We can make this a little community book club thing…good descriptions there Hann.

  1. I just finished the second book in the trilogy as well, I found the writing to be quite juvenile, although I enjoyed the storyline. I just wish the writing was more thoughtful- she did a lot of repeating herself and saying the obvious. I like the second book a lot more, and have high hopes for the third. I can definitely see that her writing style was developing from the first book. It was alright for YA, just not my favorite! I'm excited to see what they do with it on the big screen!

  2. Divergent was the first book I have read this year too! I agree, the story was amazing! I couldn't put it down. It was just such an original plot.

    I've just finished Insurgent and I can't wait until I get my hands on Allegiant (once it is cheaper than £6!)
