emma; only girl in the world

Page Turner: Divergent by Veronica Roth

Dauntless [Goodreads]
As much as I try to stay away, I just can't turn my back on YA books. Especially with my dad giving me a Kindle, it's too easy to read them now and to baptize my new Kindle, I decided to jump on this book thanks to recs from famouslyso and mellowdee. And obviously, there is a reason they rec'ed this book to me, it is so up my alley.

Don't bother with the Hunger Games comparisons -- the dystopian setting is where the similarities end (for me at least). And of course, it's been optioned by Summit for a movie too (What hasn't Summit optioned really?). How are they alike though? They're both pretty damn awesome. Collapse )
