Cassandra | 5832 comments Hey Alison! We're starting Insurgent at the beginning of February and are hoping to have it done in two weeks. Then halfway through February we're planning to start Allegiant. We'd be happy to have you join us! :)


message 24: by Alison (new)

Alison G. (agriff22) | 1083 comments Thanks! :)


message 25: by Cassandra (new)

Cassandra | 5832 comments I forgot to mention, we're also planning Four: A Divergent Story Collection for the beginning of March, if we get that far.


message 26: by Alison (new)

Alison G. (agriff22) | 1083 comments Cassandra- I've got The Initiate, The Son, The Traitor and the Transfer (4 books) all about Four. Are all those combined into one book here? I can read them all separately.


message 27: by Alison (last edited Feb 02, 2016 08:37PM) (new)

Alison G. (agriff22) | 1083 comments I think I've gone crazy this year. I'm in the middle of 3 books and I forgot to take my physical book to the doctor today, so I started Allegiant since I'll be reading it later this month for a group read. I'll get my reading schedule figured out soon... I hope!
