In February, I’ll be joining the Covers on the Silver Screen Read-a-Long of Divergent hosted by Book-alicious Mama to coincide with the movie adaptation release in March. Written by Veronica Roth, Divergent is the first book in the wildly popular Divergent trilogy. The story takes place in a Chicago of the future where humans have been divided into factions based on personality types and interact, or don’t interact, based on that faction. When the youth of the city turn sixteen, each must take an aptitude test to determine which faction they are best suited for continuing into adulthood. It is this test that reveals to Beatrice Prior (Tris) a secret about herself and forces her to make one of the toughest decisions of her life.
I couldn’t help reading the book as soon I got my hands on it and I’m eating up the pages so fast I’ll probably finish the book before February even gets started. I haven’t read The Hunger Games, so I don’t have anything to compare it to, but so far Divergent has a great mix of action and character drama. I like it!
Have you read Divergent? What did you think?
