Divergent by Veronica Roth

Recommended by Myeisha T.

The previews for this movie based on the book was so eye catching it made me wanna jump and read this book.Divergent is about battle, falling in love, heartbreak, and making hard decisions. Will Tris make it in dauntless , or will her own mind get her in a lot of trouble?. This book reminds me of Hunger Games , where people fought for what they want. What stands out about this book…is the way of life for them is very different from our way of life. Its very attention grabbing you’ll never wanna put it down. Trust me in the beginning you might think its not gonna turn out good but just keep reading , because trust me its all worth it.I give this book a 5 out of 5…if you like love and war you should most definitely read this book.

Insurgent (Book 2 of Divergent series)

Recommended by Ms. Parker

When the action in a book is so good that you’re willing to lose sleep over it, you know it’s a good read. That’s how is was for me with all three books in the Divergent series. I knew I needed to put the book down and go to sleep, but I just kept thinking….I just want to read a little bit more. In Insurgent, Tris finds herself thrown into a war between the factions that divide her city. A lot of times people complain that the second book in a trilogy can be boring because it is mostly filler, but that is certainly not the case with Insurgent. The book has a well-developed story arc of its own. It kind of reminds me of the movie The Matrix Reloaded, in that way. I also think The Matrix is a good comparison to this trilogy because everything the protagonist thinks she understands about the society she is living in changes with each new installment in the series. Before reading this series, I would have told you I am not much of a fan of science fiction, but the Divergent series changed my mind! I would definitely rate this book 5 stars. If you like a book with action, surprises, and main characters you care about, then definitely read Insurgent and the rest of the books in this series. I can’t wait for the Insurgent movie!
