- Divergent by Veronica Roth
- Moonglass by Jessi Kirby
- The Royal Treatment by Lindsey Leavitt (Princess for Hire 2)
So I would say Divergent is Matched meets Hunger Games.
Beatrice lives in a society where they get to choose one of 5 factions where they will spend their life. Once she chooses, she becomes Tris, a very intense, strong and brave character. Yet still shows vulnerabilities you can connect with. I felt her struggle in her initial decision and the conflict in staying with that decision. Divergent is extremely well written and chock full of action, romance, suspense, and mystery. It gives a gritty view of a future Chicago.
Now lets talk about Veronica. I followed Veronica's blog when she first began writing this story late one fall. I finally met her in person last year at LA and she is adorable and funny. Love her. Soooo, I am happy she gets to take this journey in publishing. She is also a Bookanista so that puts her a tiny but closer to my heart :).
You HAVE to check out this book. YOU will not be disappointed!
