Waiting on Wednesday: Divergent

Waiting on Wendesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine. Here, book bloggers talk about the release of books we are eagerly anticipating.


For this week I'm really looking forward to the release of:

Title: Divergent by Veronica Roth (she's only 22!)

Release Date: May 3rd, 2011 (only a few more days!)

Short synopsis (Goodreads): 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.

Reason: I have heard TONS of good things about this book. Sad I wasn't able to get an ARC for it, but excited to support to the publishing industry with my purchase in a few weeks.. ; ) Plus, that's a pretty rocking cover!

What are you waiting for?
