#TBT Divergent by @VeronicaRoth #Hosted @CrossroadReview

Welcome to my Throw Back Thursday Meme! This meme is where I share an older book with you!  This week its of course Divergent!  The second movie Insurgent is coming out soon!  So I thought it would be a great reason to share book one again!  I remember when I finally got around to reading these. I read all three within a few days.  Then went and seen the movie.  I couldn't believe how many people waiting in line didn't even know it was a book!! WTF man how could you NOT KNOW!!!  I mean it was plastered everywhere!  While watching the movie I completely forgot that the author was going to make a cameo.  It wasn't until this past week that we were watching the movie again and I just happened to remember and it was right at the spot where the author was.  (Such luck!)  So I finally got to see her!  

I really loved this series!  It was fast paced and wonderful!  

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, 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 alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating 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 unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.
