Divergent Trilogy

So what have I been doing since I have taken a couple days off from writing here in the blog. Well there is no easy way to confess your dirty secret but to air it out in public. Hi my name is Sparkles and Whimsy and I read entire book series in a week. Now let me be honest the only reason it took me that long was because I had to wait in-between days of finishing the last book to go out and get the next book. Yes I have a terrible problem of reading books like they are movies. I mean you don’t start movies just to stop them in the middle and wait to finish them later. You watch it all in one sitting.

I got the first book Divergent by Veronica Roth while I was at a store and saw it on sale (yes this is how I pick my books don’t judge I am sure you have done it before). I didn’t realize till later that this was going to be turned into a movie so now I am even more excited that I read it you know so I can be one of those people that are like that’s not how it is in the book and constantly make comparisons of the differences.

I don’t want to give away anything in the book. So I will be a little sparse with details. I will lead off with this I loved all three books (Divergent, Insurgent and Allegiant). I got so wrapped up in them that I couldn’t put the books down and I needed to find out what happened next.

Divergent is the first in the trilogy. It is about a dystopian world set in Chicago. The main character is Beatrice Prior and the book is told from her perspective. They live in a place that is sectioned off by five factions each one has a virtue that is the way of life in that faction. Abnegation the selfless, Dauntless the brave, Erudite the intelligent, Candor the honest and Amity the peaceful. One day a year the 16 year olds go through a test to decide which faction the will belong to for the rest of their lives. Beatrice then finds out a secret that she is never aloud to speak of and makes a decision  that sets the course for the rest of the book.

Insurgent is the second in the trilogy. There is a war brewing between the factions and Tris (Beatrice) is tested in every way possible. She must deal with the decisions you make and the consequences that come from them. This book deals a lot with guilt and forgiveness.

Allegiant is the last in the trilogy. In this book there are a lot of secrets revealed and worlds are turned upside down. What once was real or important is not anymore. The ending is full of surprises and you wont be able to put the last several chapters down.

Sorry for the scarce explanation on the books but you will just have pick them up and read them for your self. Just one more little explanation there is of course a struggling love story, finding who your true friends are and just how much your family and their values can shape who you are.  

Have you read the books or are you ready to throw yourself into a new and different world let me know and leave a comment.
