Read it!

Hey everyone! I just wanted to tell you all about a book that I read in the summer. I've been meaning to post about it for ages, but remembering things is not my strong point! Anyway, after I read The Hunger Games, I started looking around for more futuristic kind of books. During my scout, a friend recommended a book called Divergent to me (by Veronica Roth). I'm not going to lie, I was pretty sceptical. Mainly because I hadn't heard of it before and I had never heard of Veronica Roth. To this day, I still struggle to find Divergent in book stores and libraries. But I decided to give it a go, and ordered Divergent and the following book Insurgent, from Amazon. I don't want to give too much of the story away, but I will give you a rough outline of the plot. Beatrice Prior lives in Chicago, which is divided into five factions, which all value different things. (for example bravery and selflessness). When she becomes sixteen she has the chance to choose which faction she wants to spend the rest of her life in.

I read one page and from that moment on, I was hooked. Literally. I read both books in a week and completely loved them. This sounds so cliche but, I laughed and cried. To be honest, if you thought there was a lot going on in The Hunger Games, your wrong. The majority of the books is Katniss moaning, in these books you are turning ten pages a minute. All I can say is, read them! I guarantee you will love them.
