Wishlist Wednesday: Divergent by Veronica Roth



Wishlist Wednesday features books that have been on your wishlist for a long time, old or new.






DIVERGENT
veronica roth


In a future Chicago, 16-year-old Beatrice Prior must choose among five predetermined factions to define her identity for the rest of her life, a decision made more difficult when she discovers that she is an anomaly who does not fit into any one group, and that the society she lives in is not perfect after all.



c.j.'s thoughts
I kept seeing this and stupidly, I didn't read it when it came out.  "Too much like the Hunger Games," I thought.  "I'm a silly grad student with too many papers to write and I don't have time for fun," I thought.  Clearly I thought wrong, because everything I hear about this book is good.  And, okay, the clincher?  It's set in Chicago.  I have an overwhelming soft spot for anything set in, referring to, or remotely related to Chicago.  So as soon as I get a copy, I will be devouring it!

  1. I really enjoyed this book. In the same line as the Hunger Games, but I liked it better. I highly recommend it!

  3. I keep on seeing this book everywhere! It's like it is tormenting me... I think that I will wait until the final book comes out and then buy the whole trilogy at once so i don't have to wait for sequels :)Hope you get to read it soon! :)

    1. Ha, I know the exact feeling! I'm not sure if I'm patient enough to wait for book three. Although, my wallet might give me patience...

  6. Definitely check your library. I need to read it again, too. I read it the first time and thought, "Meh." But I remember it fondly, which usually means it deserves a second look. I hope it blows your socks off when you read it!

    1. I really should. I don't have a library card here yet, but I guess they're not hard to acquire. Maybe the second reading will bring some other facets. Thanks!

  7. I love this book! If I still had my extra copy I would send it to you... Sadly, I let someone borrow it and they never gave it back. :(

  8. Being a Chicagoan I'm the same way. Love anything that set in Chicago or the burbs. I have it on my shelf, signed but I haven't read it yet. Crazy I know.
