Book Review: 
5+ stars, new favorite.
So, this book had been on my to-be-read list for far too long, so I decided to buy it on my nook.  Also, I've seen how people have been put into fractions and .. I took the test on Facebook and got Dauntless, the brave. :D
This book is amazing! I can't even sum up how fantastic it is, but I do dare to compare it's awesomeness with Harry Potter's Awesomeness. Yup, that good. This book had it all, romance, action, character growth, and suspense. I tore through this book, there was never a moment when I felt the need to put it down. I just couldn't seem to. It's such a captivating novel, full of surprises and twists.
The characters were perfect. Tris is such a strong willed character and Four is awesome! He's my new book boyfriend haha. ^.^ Veronica's characters showed character development throughout the book which made the story even more intriguing. I really, really like the cover, the fraction symbol looks amazing but the city in the background is my favorite part of the whole cover.

Divergent is a true page turner filled with actions, suspense, and romance. Readers will be waiting in anticipation for the sequel, Insurgent.

Book Trailer: I love the fraction symbols. ^.^

“I feel like someone breathed new air into my lungs. I am not Abnegation. I am not Dauntless. 
I am Divergent.” 
― Veronica Roth, Divergent


  1. I have had this one on my list for a while to read. Now that I have read your review and you compare its awesomeness to my all time favorite, HP, maybe I should move it up my list! Excellent review!


  2. I am AMITY, I thought I would get Dauntless too..Or Erudite BUT I am more Amity I suppose or maybe I am truly Divergent? lolz.

    I JUST started reading this a few nights ago. I ordered the hard cover online so I forced myselfto put my e book down so I have something left to read when it comes in on Friday or Saturday. Its mighty hard though. I cant wait for Insurgent!
