I like to read insightful books and stuff like that.

Animal Farm

Divergent  - Veronica Roth I wavered between four and five stars but eventually settled on four. I guess that's because I like to keep five stars for really special books.

Anyway, this book was a really, really fun read. While YA Dystopia is not really my favourite genre of book I could appreciate it. It was an enjoyable read and I really liked a lot of the characters. It was a strange but nice break because most of the recent books I've read have been more thought-based and directed towards an older audience.

It did exactly what I think a dystopian book should. It had me turning pages waiting to see what happened next, it made me laugh and I really liked a lot of the characters.

(I predicted a few of the plots but I don't really think that as a bad thing as I felt rather smug when I discovered I was correct...)
