Insurgent Pre Reading

It's Insurgent Day!!! I got it, as well as "Bitterblue" by Kristin Cashore, in the mail today. 

Roth Recapping Divergent

Title: Insurgent
Author:Veronica Roth
Year Published: 2012 


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. 

Why?:  I LOVED Divergent. I loved the world that was created and the characters inhabiting it. I'm ready to see what Tris is up to now. The world was left in chaos. 

Expectations: I have very high expectations for this book. I am very ready to start reading it. I will be reading through Roth's recap before starting, for sure. 

Judging a book by its cover: The cover is very nice. Divergent had a very clean cover with the fire and the grey. This cover is more organic and dirty. The tree insignia of the Amity faction intrigues me. The first book had a lot to do with Dauntless and thus had its insignia on the cover. Seeing Amity's insignia on the cover makes me excited to learn more about Amity.
