I'm a librarian based in the UK who loves books. I'm happiest when I'm either talking about them, reading them or buying them. This blog is dedicated mainly to my addiction to YA fiction but you will also find some adult and non-fiction book reviews as well.

Waiting on Wednesday #41

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly awaited upcoming releases.  Head on over there to take part or to check out all the other fabulous books that people are looking forward to reading! 

Insurgent by Veronica Roth
Published by HarperCollins in May 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.


This is the sequel to Veronica Roth's outstanding debut novel 'Divergent'.  I still can't believe she's only 23 and yet wrote one of the most impressive books I've read so far this year.  I'm really excited about 'Insurgent' which sounds like it's going to be a stellar follow-up.

  1. So many people have got this on their WoW and it's making me so excited! Divergent was one of my favorites from 2011 and it left us with such a cliffhanger. I'm dying to know whats going to happen next! Can't wait for its release! Great choice =)
