The Time Will Come (1)


The Time Will Come is a great meme hosted by Jodie over at Books For Company. The point of this meme is to list a book that has been sitting on our bookshelves unread for too long and we have been meaning to get round to for ages!

I have been thinking of participating in this meme for quite some time, but I always seemed to forget about it! Anyway, the time has come for The Time Has Come! (Now, wasn't that extra smart of me??)

Yes, I give you permission to laugh...

Seeing as this is my first TTWC post, I will be talking about a very well known book that I still haven't got round to reading, which is......

Divergent by Veronica Roth   In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself. 
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her. 


Since I saw the first reviews of it, I really wanted to read it. So as soon as I saw that its price had dropped considerably on the Book Depository (which was actually only a few days after its release), I decided to buy it. Needless to say, it's still sitting on my bookshelf and the main reason for that is that I don't want to get caught up in the hype. I am usually pretty objective about the books I read, but I'm holding back on this one a little. Even still, it pretties up my bookshelf with its shininess!

  5. Yaaay! You joined in!

    Divergent is so, so good and it really does live up to the hype but you're probably clever not to go ahead and read it while people are still buzzing about it. Make sure you get to it before 2012 though, because it needs to be read soon.
