Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments I have to finish a book and return some to the library and then will start this!


Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments Well I am now remembering all of the reasons I love this book.

And I have found some very amusing quotes.

I started this morning and am on pg 251 of 487.

I want to pick up Free Four Tobias Tells the Story (Divergent, #1.5) by Veronica Roth and read Four's POV as I read Tris's POV of the same events but that would mean starting another book and I am already in the middle of 5.

I will leave you with some quotes.

(view spoiler)

I may have to reassess my rating of this book once I finish. It may be worthy of 5 stars.

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments Well I couldn't stop myself and I read Free Four. Good thing it was much much shorter than I remembered. Very disappointed. I remembered it being much longer. It's okay though, I was playing Four's POV in my mind as I read each chapter of Divergent anyway. It's was almost as good as having a book from his POV.


Emily | 1596 comments I am having a hard time getting into this

What page are you on?


Emily | 1596 comments I am in the second chapter reading on my kindle so I don't know what page


Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments It does get more exciting after the choosing ceremony. I think around chapter 6.


Emily | 1596 comments Mandiann wrote: "It does get more exciting after the choosing ceremony. I think around chapter 6."
I am on the choosing ceremony now


Michelle I feel like it is similar to the Hunger Games.


Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments Michelle, yes, it does have similarities. I prefer the Hunger Games but think both are good books.

Emily - Are you past the choosing ceremony? Are you getting into it a bit more or still having a hard time?


Grace (gracenherondale) | 27 comments It took me quite a while to get into it, but once I did I couldn't stop reading :))

Same here! I have all this work dumped on me at the last minute, and so I know I'll have to catch up on a lot of reading this weekend.

I started to get into it but haven't gotten much further because my husbands grandma died we have been at the funeral home all day. So hopefully I can get into it this weekend

Oh! I'm so sorry to hear that! Please tell him I wish him the best. :-) It must be really hard. :-(


Emily | 1596 comments alright I am really behind on this one but I plan to finish it up this week (I plan to anyway)


Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments I have halted my progress on this book as I had a few too many library books that were nearing their due dates. I will pick it up again soon!

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments I don't think I will have the time to read this. I was also working on library books that had to go back. I will try to read it before our BR for Insurgent though!

I don't feel so bad now for getting so far behind I won't stress to finish quickly then as I have another BR I am working on I will do what you are Jacquelyn and try to finish before the Insurgent BR
