Tuesday Tales – Diving into Divergent

It is no joke when I say, I just started reading Divergent by Veronica Roth.

Catching up on Divergent

Many of my friends have read the series and suggested it over the last few months, but I was reading other items that were on my must read list. The other day, I finally decided that I really wanted to know what everyone was talking about. I downloaded the book to my Kindle App and started reading. I have not read a lot of the book, but so far it has really captured my attention. I want to know more about the characters and the world that they live in.

The movie was just a short time ago and more of my friends have been swarming to see it on the big screen. I have been careful to try to avoid the spoilers because I want to experience the book for myself in my own mind. This book trailer shares the suspense that I feel as I am getting underway with this book.

I keep reading when I have time here and there while waiting for meetings, appointments, or the kids to get out of school. I can not wait to read more about Beatrice Prior and the dystopian Chicago world that she lives in. I want to know more about the five factions that the people devote themselves to when they turn sixteen. What are the real differences between the Candor, the Abnegation, the Dauntless, the Amity, and the Erudite? Only time will tell as I continue to read and play catch up on the series.  Some days I really do wish there were more hours in the day for reading.

Have you read Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant yet? I would love to know your thoughts on this series. As always, please share what you have read recently. Be sure to link up to your book posts in the comments below. Include something you read on your own, with a child, or someone else. Tuesday Tales are all about spreading the love for books.

    I read Divergent on a flight to and from Orlando in February. To say I devoured the book might be an understatement. :) [And I saw the movie a couple weeks ago … it was pretty good). I’m in the middle of Insurgent now. So far it’s good .. although a bit slower than Divergent. Overall, I really like the books and am eager to finish the series (now I just have to find the time to do that!). Hope you’re enjoying Divergent.
