Waiting on Wednesday – Insurgent

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:

Publisher: HarperCollins
Publish Date: May 28, 2012
Genre: Dystopia, Science Fiction
Summary: One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
I’m sure Insurgent will be a popular Waiting on Wednesday pick this week and it should be. Divergent is one of the best books I have read this year and one of my all time favorites, you can read my review here. Insurgent is one of my most anticipated books for 2012. The cover is amazing (I love gritty/artistic dystopian covers), it complements the Divergent cover and the summary has me dying to get my hands on this book. What books are you guys waiting on?

High five for having the same book! I also predicted that Insurgent would be very popular. Divergent was absolutely incredible, and I hope this sequel will be just as good, if not better. Excellent pick this week :D

I hadn't seen this cover yet, but it's awesome! I like it way better than DIVERGENT's! I still can't believe I haven't read the first book yet. I really need to get on that. haha

I've had Divergent on my shelf forever and still haven't read it even though I love Dystopian and have heard nothing but great reviews. I'm sure this will be on my list ASAP.

I just finished Divergent. It was good but I'm not understanding the hype :( I feel like I missed something.

BUT I do like the Insurgent cover.
