Waiting on Wednesday (9)
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that was created by Breaking the Spine to spotlight a blogger's eagerly anticipated new books.
For this Waiting on Wednesday, I picked Insurgent by Veronica Roth.
Release Date:May 2012
Book Summary: "One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.
Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature."
My Thoughts: So, back last year, Oshie and I finished listening to the audiobooks of The Hunger Games series and were hoping to find another dystopian adventure to enjoy. Divergent was a pleasant surprise for us. Even though the author is younger than we are, the girl can write! With the action-packed ending to Divergent, Oshie turned to me and demanded to know if there was a sequel in the works. Only a few more months to wait! Tweet
