Insurgent Countdown and Giveaway: 4 Days Left
Welcome, readers, to Day 4 in The Book Basement's Insurgent Countdown! Today's topic is similar books, AKA "I've read Divergent. Now what?"
I know a few bloggers do this type of thing in each of their reviews, but I don't. So this post is dedicated to books that a fan of Divergent might enjoy!
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (YA) - Okay. I know there are people who compare Divergent to The Hunger Games. And yes, I am recommending it to Divergent fans, but that doesn't mean these books are alike. They're both set in dystopian worlds, yes, but other than that, they're pretty darn different. I love The Hunger Games and I'm definitely sure fans of Divergent will as well.
Legend by Marie Lu (YA) - I kind of see a lot of Tris in the main protagonist of this book, June. June is very proactive and smart, which I think relates well with Tris. So if you're a fan of Divergent, I think you'll enjoy this action-y, dystopian book!
Delirium by Lauren Oliver (YA) - If you're a fan of Divergent that has a huge spot for romance, Delirium is your book! There's the dystopian government and the limited life, but then there's also a thrilling romance, as well as some scary action scenes!
The Giver by Lois Lowry (MG) - I'm not sure if this book is middle grade or young adult, but I think it's middle grade. Nonetheless, Divergent actually reminded me of The Giver quite a bit. The government is sort of alike, and although this book is not quite as action packed and doesn't have a dazzling romance, I'm positive fans of Divergent will like this book!
Those are my book recommendations to a Divergent fan! Do you have any recommendations to a Divergent fan? What do you think of mine? Answer the questions in the comments to be entered in the giveaway! Or you can tweet about it. Fill out the form!
Day 5. Day 6. Day 7.
Day 3's topic will be my dream cast for Divergent!
