Top Ten YA Novels 2012: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Finally, the Goodreads Choice 2012 Winner, by the New York Times #1 bestseller Veronica Roth, the sequel of the stunning book Divergent. Time to be a rebel!

No. 1: Insurgent by Veronica Roth


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.


(I figured I didn't write a review about it...)

Why I love this book so FREAKING much:

1. Best dystopian book ever

The 5 factions is the best thing in my life! Since I read Divergent, I always imagine what it would be like to live in Chicago. And yeah, I fall for the characters. Hard. And then things are getting crazier in Insurgent. All the fights in the Erudite Headquarters is awesome. And the betrayal of Caleb? It's more heart-breaking than it sounds because Caleb is one of my favorite characters in Divergent. The setting is perfect. Best among all the dystopian YA novels.

2. Absence of Love Triangle

Love Triangles are the main point of some very famous YA novels. But no, that is not the case in Insurgent, which is very relieving because after Clockwork Prince, I'm not sure if I can stand another wave like that. Yeah, there are emotional parts in Insurgent that gives us all the feels. But a book can be awesome without love triangles. And Veronica Roth has done a good job in Insurgent. I look forward to the final book of the trilogy.

Why you guys should read this book:

1. The previous two reasons of "why I love this book so FREAKING much"

2. More faction info

What I mean is Candor and Amity. I mean, if you read Divergent, you probably know that this is a war between Erudite and Abnegation, and the Erudite are using Dauntless as pawns. But there are not much about Candor and Amity. In Insurgent we can see that Candor is not that
"honest", and Amity leader is not that like Switzerland. She still has her own ideas. It's interesting to see because we always think that Candor and Amity should be the ones stay clean from this situation.

3. Hidden threats are everywhere

Yeah, first is the Erudite, which is no secret. But then Caleb's betrayal is kind of like a secret at first to Tris. And then there's Marcus, who would do anything to protect the information about the outside which can be the key to break free from the five-faction system. Jeanine is the same. And then there are the factionless, who will do anything to get the information and destroy it, the reason is still unknown, when they should be the group who are the most eager to break free. And then there's the outside, which is still unknown to citizens in Chicago, but can be a threat. Insurgent is the start of all kinds of battles.

Yes, you guys should definitely read Divergent and Insurgent because you will regret not reading this book. This is awesome as hell.


The third book of Divergent will be released on September 26th, 2013, title unknown (I hope it will be Convergent!)
