SERIES SATURDAY: Divergent by Veronica Roth

Series Saturday is a new meme created by us to introduce readers to new amazing series we love as well as just fangirl about them! 

So today's spotlight:

Divergent by Veronica Roth

These are the main books from the trilogy but Veronica has also written novellas and spin-offs about Four's initiation/life etc. Check them out on Goodreads!

Divergent book blurb
In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue--Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is--she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.
So Divergent trilogy was very popular after The Hunger Games book-to-movie adaptation! Dystopian YA really gained a lot after these two trilogies! Most of you have probably read them already but if you haven't check them out because the books are better than the movies (honest opinion).

I gave all books 4-5 stars although I admit I was very hyped with the new Dystopian genre so maybe if I re-read them now the rating will change...

For those of you who don't want to read the books and prefer movies... suit yourselves:

(we don't have any... we have to re-read them)

What do you think about Divergent trilogy? Have you read it? Fangirling time!!!
