Synopsis (goodreads): 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.

New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.

Why I need this: After reading Divergent, I knew exactly what my Waiting on Wednesday would be: Insurgent. Divergent was completely amazing, and I can't wait to see how Veronica takes this story next!!

What are you waiting on this Wednesday??

  4. Oh my god I'm SO psyched for this one too. Divergent was so much fun!! Awesome pick!

  5. Insurgent picks up right where Divergent leaves off, without any of the annoying repetitive recap that typically litters books in a series.

    There are so many great elements arranged into a fantastic continuation of this story, so bravo to Veronica Roth. I loved the emotional evolution of Tris following the backlash of events in Divergent; I loved the tension of the plot; I loved the appropriately concise prose matching the setting of events; I loved that the big reveal at the end wasn't something ridiculous, that the suspense and build up of said reveal were worthy of it.
