Jamie | 10984 comments Join us in November and December in reading the Divergent (Divergent, #1) by Veronica Roth trilogy.

ɑƨħŵɑɡ ♥Team Magnus Damora FOREVER♥ and I will be working on all three books starting Nov 2nd. We would love for others to join us and read as you can over November and December.


ɑƨħŵɑɡ ♥Team Magnus Damora FOREVER♥ (unheard) | 2446 comments YES, COME JOIN AND FANGIRL OVER TRIS & FOUR.. i can't wait to start it


ɑƨħŵɑɡ ♥Team Magnus Damora FOREVER♥ (unheard) | 2446 comments Hi, how many chapters you wanna read per day???


Jamie | 10984 comments Sorry, just noticed this.
I was thinking of trying for about 5 chapters a day. Give or take as needed for real life vs free time and variable chapter length. If you want to do more or less lust let me know.


Jamie | 10984 comments Just read chapter 1 so far. I will be reading more tonight. (view spoiler)

ɑƨħŵɑɡ ♥Team Magnus Damora FOREVER♥ (unheard) | 2446 comments Ok! So i'm all caught up .. i'm at chapter 10 .. i loved Christina and it feels so good to be back to this series.. Eric is such a jerk è_é

Have you got your head wrapped around all factions yet??


Jamie | 10984 comments Sadly I am a bit behind right now. Got a last minute call away for work a double shift yesterday. So reading was nil. I'll have to read double tonight :)


Thoughts on the first few chapters: (view spoiler)
The faction concepts so far seem simple enough. I would hate to be stuck in just one. Most people I know would be a blend too. How can you always be one thing?


Jamie | 10984 comments So I am about halfway through the book. Averaging closer to 3 chapters a day right now. Some family priorities came up so my reading time has been slow. Sorry for the lack of discussion.

Anyways (view spoiler)


ɑƨħŵɑɡ ♥Team Magnus Damora FOREVER♥ (unheard) | 2446 comments Me too, i got a fever that stopped my reading.. but now i'm back..

I'm @ chapter 14 (view spoiler)

I think the whole point of series in my opinion is that you can never be one thing. It's just a matter of what quality prevails in you. It's like new world discrimination.

About the low number of initiates, good point. I wish that was explained. Personally, i don't think aptitude testing would be enough for transfers because they come from factions that have no combat experience, for an instance. so how would they know what they're good at without training?


Jamie | 10984 comments Oh, good so our reading place is close to each other. I am just a couple chapters (16 or 17) ahead from where you were when you commented.

I agree about Al.

Christina | 4418 comments Will you girls be reading Insurgent? I will join in if so :D

Jamie | 10984 comments Yes, I plan to work through the whole trilogy. Seems like it will be about 2 weeks per book as we are halfway through the first one.

So please feel free to join in at any time, for any of the books :) I hope to have Divergent done in the next few days myself but so far the pacing is very open .

Victoria Scott | 2393 comments I'll join you guys for the second one, depending on when it is. Would one of you be able to message me when you've picked a date? :)

It's alright Victoria.. i also have many series to read next month dropping it wouldn't be a problem.. best luck on your exams :)


Victoria Scott | 2393 comments Thanks! :)


Jamie | 10984 comments sorry, I haven't fully disappeared. Like Victoria like just hit me super hard and I fell behind on everything. I have only gotten through chapter 5 so far. (view spoiler) So if we want to put it on hold that is fine. :) Again sorry for the holdup. Until yesterday I didn't even have the time to post-Holiday work hours snuck up on me. So I can go either way now that the evil Black Friday weekend is over.

Since when did the factionless became so large that they can start a rebellion?

That is the type of things that happens when you overlook people.
