Insurgent Countdown and Giveaway: 5 Days Left
Welcome to Day 5 of The Book Basement's Insurgent Countdown! Today's topic is rave reviews. I'm sure that I've already said more than you guys want to hear about Divergent. So why not highlight some of things awesome bloggers have said about my favorite book?
Mimi from Mimi Valentine says, "Divergent is an amazing book filled with thrilling challenges, lovable characters, unexpected turns and just enough romance to satisfy the cravings of a reader. Divergent is a must have for your literary shelf!"
It definitely is a must-have!
Katie from Katie's Book Blog says, "I couldn't stop reading and I was dying for more. Overall, Divergent is a brilliant debut that I want more of. I never thought a 496 page book would be too short for me but this one was."
Totally! 496 pages = NOT ENOUGH.
Amber from Down the Rabbit Hole says, "Engrossing, unforgettable and addictive, Divergent sizzles with unique characters and an incredibly intense plot line that rivals The Hunger Games. There are some books that grip you from page one and hold firmly to you long after the pages have all been turned it is sleeping snuggly next to the other books on your shelf. Divergent is absolutely one of these novels. Honest, unforgettable, tension-packed and beautifully written, Divergent is a perfect debut."
My goodness. Amber has such a way with words. She needs to work for Kirkus or something!
Bailey from IB Book Blogging says, "Divergent is sooooo good that I want to shout at the top of my lungs to the whole world about its awesomeness! It is dystopian at its finest! Divergent is wonderfully written and I can’t brag enough about it! There aren’t enough words to describe the beauty of the novel. I will be waiting on pins and needles for the next novel in this series. Do not miss out on this fantastic debut!!"
Bailey's enthusiasm is infectious, no? :)
So, you've heard it from four other bloggers! Divergent is just a book packed with AWESOME. The question(s) for this post: Do rave reviews make you want to buy the book? Or do they make you wary, thinking that the novel can't possibly live up to such high expectations? Remember, you must either leave a comment and/or tweet about this post.
