Wishlist Wenesday (#1)


Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop hosted by Dani at Pen to Paper. You will post about one book a week that is on your wishlist. It can be on you just added or one that's been on your list for awhile.


This week the book on my wishlist is...

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.

Debut author Veronica Roth bursts onto the literary scene with the first book in the Divergent series--dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance.


I've been wanting to read this book for a while but I just haven't gotten around to it yet. Then once I heard it's in the process of becoming a movie, I'm now on a mission to get this book and have it read before it comes out! They currently have the release date at March 21st, 2014. So I still have a good year to get this book crossed off my TBR list!

Have you read Divergent? What are your thoughts?
 Are you excited to see it coming to the big screen?
