Waiting on Wednesday: Insurgent

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking the Spine, spotlighting books that have not yet been released but are being greatly anticipated. Today, my pick under the category "OMGosh I want this book in my hands like twelve seconds ago" is the sequel to the fantastic book Divergent by Veronica Roth: Insurgent.


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.
Oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh. I LOOOOVED Divergent! That book rocked like...an avalanche. (Get it? An avalanche is like...rocks. I know, I know, I'm great at awful puns. Please forgive me. ;D) If you haven't read Divergent, you have absolutely NO IDEA what you're missing! It had action! Adventure! Bravery! Excitement! AND FOUR! No, silly, not the number, the PERSON! And he's awesome. Don't take my word for it! Read Divergent, and then you'll be going crazy waiting for Insurgent, too! Plus, check out that pretty countdown widget -->
