Review: Divergent by Veronica Roth

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself. 
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her. 
Debut author Veronica Roth bursts onto the literary scene with the first book in the Divergent series—dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance.
My review:

Sixteenyear-old Beatrice is going on special occasion where she must decide which particular virtue she will be cultivating for the rest of her life. Beatrice grew up in Abnegation where live only selfless people. But she never assess herself as unselfish person, she have always been different from other family members. On ceremony, Beatrice suprises with her choice even herself. She thinks that everything will be alright now. But at first, she must survive the initiation - become neither dead nor factionless.

I must say that I love dystopian novels. I think that dystopia is my favourite genre at all. But recently, there are many new releases in this genre and many books are not even worth reading. There were rumors about Divergent, even before the book was published. The rumors were saying that new dystopian series by Veronica Roth may be better than The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. And everybody who reads frequently know that THG are the best books which have been ever written.

I enjoyed reading Divergent. It was different from books I usually read, better - I can say. Veronica Roth really knows how to write. The writing was excellent and reading it was light. I like character of Tris (Beatrice) - heroine of the book and character of Four as well. Veronica Roth created strong heroes, faced them with various circumstances and let them act right. There were moments where I can not put the book down. Divergent contain smiles and tears, harshness and love, vigour and tension. 

But I must admit that there are few hollow places which make the book not so amazing. Sometimes, it just seem to be strange. Some parts remind me of other dystopian books. For those who have already read this book, it was part about being controlled - reminds me Possession by Elana Johson and dangerous scene near the chasm - reminds me The Host by Stephanie Meyer.

Despite all negative facts, Divergent is really enjoyable book and I recommend it. I have desire to read this book again right now.

Stars rating:

Divergent has also many beautiful and meaningful quotes. You should really read this book by yourselves.

Review: If I Stay by Gayle Forman

In a single moment, everything changes. Seventeenyear- old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall riding along the snow-wet Oregon road with her family. Then, in a blink, she fi nds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck...
A sophisticated, layered, and heartachingly beautiful story about the power of family and friends, the choices we all make - and the ultimate choice Mia commands.
My review:

Seventeenyear-old Mia had wonderful life. She had a gorgeous boyfriend who was madly in love with her, tolerant and loving parents and a musical talent. She was dealing with choice whether go to the prestigious musical college in New York City or stay with her boyfriend, family and friends.

But one moment changed everything. Mia´s family went out for a drive and crashed. Her little brother, her kind parents, everybody died, except for her. Now she must dealing with the most important question - does she want to be still alive?

Gayle Forman´s writing is awesome. You feel like a part of book from the first pages. Plot, characters, everything in this book is convincing, the author made it perfectly. Telling of story is from Mia´s point of view. She is really likeable character. There are parts about what Mia is going through now and parts, where she is recalling memories of her brother Teddy, parents, member of her family, her boyfriend Adam. I must to admit that Mia and Adam are beautiful couple. You see their love everywhere in this book. Mia is very young but she must make very difficult decisions. If she stay in this world - without the closest relatives of hers - or not. If I Stay is heartbreaking, sort of sad, sort of happy, must-read publication, full of love and awesome quotes. I really recommend you this book. And don´t miss the sequel Where She Went which should be even better than If I Stay.

Stars rating:

My favourite quote:
"If you stay, I'll do whatever you want. I'll quit the band, go with you to New York. But if you need me to go away, I'll do that, too. I was talking to Liz and she said maybe coming back to your old life would be too painful, that maybe it'd be easier for you to erase us. And that would suck, but I'd do it. I can lose you like that if I don't lose you today. I'll let you go. If you stay."

Shatter me by Tahereh Mafi
Publication: November 15th 2011 by HarperTeen

Book Description:
Juliette hasn't touched anyone in exactly 264 days. The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal. As long as she doesn't hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old-girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don't fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color. 
The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war- and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she's exactly what they need right now. 
Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior. 
In this electrifying debut, Tahereh Mafi presents a world as riveting asThe Hunger Games and a superhero story as thrilling as The X-Men. Full of pulse-pounding romance, intoxicating villainy, and high-stakes choices, Shatter Me is a fresh and original dystopian novel—with a paranormal twist—that will leave readers anxiously awaiting its sequel.
I read many good things about this book and I can´t wait to read it. Check out these awesome reviews.
