Insurgent by Veronica Roth Review

Hello everyone! :) Welcome to my 2nd ever book review! Hope you enjoy!

So, I went into this book not expecting anything. I finished Divergent during the Bout of Books Read-a-thon and I decided to read something contemporary before picking up Insurgent, so that I could have a bit of a break to relax my mind since Divergent was the first dystopian book I had ever read. I'm glad I did because I got to totally clear my head of what expectations I might have had after reading Divergent.

Insurgent was a good book. It started with all of the familiar crowd. I was glad for it because it helped to ease back into the series and into this new book too. I read it virtually non-stop for 2 days over the Memorial Day weekend holiday. However, I did have other things going on in my unfortunate busy adulthood, lol! But, I lost myself in this book immediately-- I honestly haven't done that in such a long time, it usually takes 25 to 45 pages at least.

So, again I am not usually into dystopian worlds but, this world is realistic but not quite. So, it was easy to imagine as I read.

Tris/Beatrice and Four/Tobias are adorable but still realistic. I mean, all couples argue, usually over stupid shit too. He protects her and she protects him, yet they spend a lot of time pushing each other away because neither is sure the extent of how the other truly feels, even though to us as readers, we see it right away!

This book shows us more o how the other factions and also the faction less live/work and what they are about. We delve more into the extreme "war" between the factions. We see the traitors and the people who faked being traitors to their factions to get information from the first book. There are a few plot twists that will honestly surprise the hell out of you!

I can't wait to read Allegiant. I have heard mixed reviews, but that's ok. I prefer to find out these things for myself anyhow.

But, before I dive into Allegiant, I am reading a heavy content contemporary to break up the "Some ol' same ol'" of a series of books, so I don't get burnt out on them.

So, In between Divergent and Insurgent I read Shut Out by Kody Keplinger and on man, it was such a good book. I loved The DUFF by her so I knew I would like this one too. Now, I am reading We Were Liars by E Lockhart. So, far it is a great book, very deep and telling. I will most likely be doing a review on it too. :)

Have a wonderful day everyone! :)
