The 12 Books of Christmas -- #2

I've been counting down my 12 favorite books of 2011, and  today we are ready for #2. To clarify, these are book I READ in 2011; they weren't necessarily published in 2011. I have rated 18 books so far this year with a perfect 5 out of 5 hats. So my top twelve books were a bit difficult to determine. Book #2 is:
Divergent, by Veronica Roth

Click on the title to read my full review. Divergent had one of the most colorful, kick-ass heroines that I've ever read. The book is action-packed, but still has enough interesting plotting to make the story real. From my review:

Roth writes characters that just jump off the page. My heart pounded right along with Tris, and I felt her pain as she made a decision about her faction. All of the side characters brought out strong emotions – whether hate, love, heartbreak, or tension. She really gets you inside all their heads.

For dystopian lovers this is a must read. And for those who aren't quite sure, this book might make you a believer. Give it a try.



Feel free to link up your favorite books in the comments, if you want. Tune in tomorrow for number #1!

  3. I am doing the 2012 Dystopian Challenge so thank you for reminding me about this one and the Westerfeld series (Leviathan is the first, right?)
