The first completed series on my list was one I read for book club. Our reading list for the year includes 4 trilogies, and this was the first one up.
Books in Order: Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant
Favorite Book: Divergent
Genres/Keywords: science fiction, young adult, dystopic
My Average Rating: 3.33
What These Books Do Well: feisty heroine, interesting societal makeup with the faction system
What These Books Could Do Better: the romance (I really don’t like Tris/Four’s relationship), science fiction elements (the tech is way cooler in the films), the storyline (the plot feels stretched), the ending (I won’t give it away, but I was not thrilled)
Overall Thoughts: I really like science fiction and I enjoyed the first two films, but the books did not really impress me. I liked the first book the best, which went deeper into the creation of the faction system and was the most clever.
