Itty-Bitty Reviews: Veronica Roth

Two-in-One Itty-Bitty Reviews: Free Four and Insurgent


First off, an explanation. The reason why I haven't been blogging, well, ever, lately is because of this thing called a Chautauqua. (If you don't know what that is, click here.) Along with said presentation, I have had various smaller projects that go along with that big overarching one. So, basically, the last month of my life has been hell and chaos personified.
I perform my Chautauqua at the end of the month, so it shouldn't be long before I am back to reading full-time. ;)

I have two itty-bitty reviews for you today, the first being of Free Four, by Veronica Roth, an alternate-perspective scene from Divergent.


Goodreads Summary:


A never-before-seen piece from #1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth: a pivotal scene from DIVERGENT told from Four’s point of view.

And, now, for my


Review:



Too. Short. Four. Deprivation.

*writhing on floor*

This is the one instance I would ever allow anyone to pull a Midnight Sun. Ever.

Hope you enjoyed my philosophic and deep words.
Since it's a short story, I'm not going to rate it. Consider it a five.


Now, moving on . . .
My itty-bitty review of Insurgent, the second book in Veronica Roth's Divergent trilogy!


Goodreads Summary


One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.
Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.

Review:


Final Verdict: 5,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000/5 Stars

This book is in the key of A Major, because that's my favorite key, and this is my favorite book.

Don't you think that image adds a nice touch? That pretty much summarizes my entire life, and probably a handful of yours.
