Four: A Divergent Collection by Veronica Roth

Four: A Divergent Collection by Veronica Roth

Giveaways, Reviews 2 ★★★★★

I love Four. This collection of short-stories is just the fix I needed. This Divergent Collection includes the short stories The Transfer, The Initiate, The Son, and The Traitor, as well as key moments from Divergent.

The Transfer

I open my palm over the coals. I feel like they're burning in my stomach, filling me to the brim with fire and smoke. I am free.

We pick up with Tobias as he finishes his Aptitude Test, and follow him as the makes the life-changing decision to join Dauntless. I loved being inside his head and getting a better look into...

Pawn by Aimée Carter

Pawn by Aimée Carter

Reviews 2 ★★★

Aimée Carter’s foray into dystopian fiction is an interesting read which I liked, although I am ambivalent about Pawn overall. On one hand, I liked the world and its characters, and on the other hand, I disliked them too.

The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa

The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa

Reviews 2 ★★★★★

I have loved every moment of my time with Allison, and although I am sad to let her go, I think The Forever Song concludes the Blood of Eden series very well. I think Kagawa, who set out to tell a completely different kind of story by combining the best of vampire fiction and dystopian settings, has achieved it masterfully.

The Elite by Kiera Cass

The Elite by Kiera Cass

Reviews 1 ★★★

I enjoyed The Elite significantly more than The Selection because I knew what I was getting myself into this time – a love triangle with a sprinkle of dystopia and intrigue. I was still disappointed that the author didn’t choose to delve into the rebellion, however, and the lack of growth in America’s character really frustrated me.

While We Run by Karen Healey

While We Run by Karen Healey

Reviews 0 ★★★★

An accomplished sequel, While We Run continues to explore a dystopian Australia which has closed off its borders to refugees and jealously guards her wealth and good fortunes. When Tegan Oglietti woke up after being cryogenically frozen for 100 years, she thought she’d been brought back to a better world….

Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

Reviews 0 ½

I am severely disappointed. It’s a miracle I managed to finish this, and the whole time I was filled with despair and rage. Let us begin. Somewhere along the way this series stopped being about Juliette and the Reestablishment and her leaning to use her powers to bring it down….

Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi

Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi

Reviews 3 ★★★

The novellas for this series seem pretty divisive. When Destroy Me came out everyone was swooning over Warner and at the announcement of Fracture Me there was a lot of back-lash over it being from Adam’s point of view, and not Warner’s (or even Kenji’s). So much of the conversation in the fandom…
