TBR Tuesday: Divergent

Most of us have books we've bought with all intentions of reading (or maybe just because it was cheap!), only to have them fade away on a shelf or disappear into a stack of books, never to be seen or thought of again.
TBR Tuesday is a way to talk about the books we own but haven't read, see what other people think about them, and help us decide whether to bump it up our list or knock it off completely.
[If you're more a book borrower than a book buyer, you're still welcome to participate with the books that you've been meaning to read and haven't!]

On my TBR

Divergent by Veronica Roth
Dystopia, 489 pages
May 3rd 2011 by HarperCollins Children's Books

Beatrice "Tris" Prior has reached the fateful age of sixteen, the stage at which teenagers in Veronica Roth's dystopian Chicago must select which of five factions to join for life. Each faction represents a virtue: Candor, Abnegation, Dauntless, Amity, and Erudite. To the surprise of herself and her selfless Abnegation family, she chooses Dauntless, the path of courage. Her choice exposes her to the demanding, violent initiation rites of this group, but it also threatens to expose a personal secret that could place her in mortal danger. Veronica Roth's young adult Divergent trilogy launches with a captivating adventure about love and loyalty playing out under most extreme circumstances.

This was errrverywhere for awhile, and I bought it on the insane hype.  Haven't read it yet, for a number of reasons - 1) time, 2) what if it doesn't live up to the hype, and 3) it's thick y'all!  But I do want to read it soon, just because it did make everyone foam at the mouth, and all.
Have you read it?  What do you think - hype earned or no?

What's lurking in your TBR mountain this week?


  1. AHHH, MISTY!! How have you not read this yet?? Seriously! This was my best book of 2011! Okay, remember several months ago when I confessed that I'd never read Hunger Games, and you threatened to tie me to a chair until I finished? Consider that threat reciprocated.


  2. OMG! You have not read this yet!? Misty, I really must pressure you to read this!

  3. Hype earned!! Definitely in my top 3 books of the year.

  4. Yes, read it!! It does live up to the hype. The world building is spot on, the female protagonist isn't a whiner, and the story itself is good! Besides, the next one "Insurgent" comes out in May!!

  5. This is the best book in the universe!(except for the bible but you know what I mean!) READ IT!

  6. This is still on my tbr pile as well, it's not that I don't want to read it there's just books that I want to read more.

  7. What a great feature! I don't own this, but yeah, I heard so much good stuff about it. I'm not sure I'll be able to get to it though.

  8. Divergent does seem like a thick book but it's so easy to read that you'll fly through it. Plus, it's riveting so you won't WANT to put it down in the first place!

  9. To answer your question, yet it does live up to the hype. I would make it a priority to read it in 2012.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
