“Waiting On” Wednesday – Insurgent

“Waiting on” Wednesday is an event created and hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.  That’s putting it nicely!  This is going to be a book I’m drooling over, waiting for it to be released.


Title: Insurgent

Author: Veronica Roth

Publication date: May 1st

Summary (by Goodreads):

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.

Why I can’t wait:

I am pining for this book…like seriously dying.  Picture a person crawling for water in the desert…ok maybe not THAT bad, it just feels like it.  This is the second book in the Divergent series and I already pre-ordered the book from Amazon.com.  *confession*  I paid the extra dollar for the shipping so I will get the book ON the published date.  *happy dance*

What book are you counting down the days for?

  1. The marketing people are doing a REALLY good job of getting everyone so excited for this book… I don’t go a day without hearing something about it. I haven’t ordered it yet, but you can bet once reviews come out I won’t be able to restrain myself any longer!!

    • Seriously! I almost didn’t want to use this book for today because literally, everyone and their mom is talking about this book… But I really do want it, so I had to use it! 🙂

    • Also, Amazon.com is selling it for $12.23 (if you pre-order) and then of course you pay the $4 or $5 shipping, but it’s still less than Barnes and Noble and paying tax.

  2. I am so excited about this book to. I preordered it from book depository last night (paper back) for like $9.94 with free shipping. I guess the paperback comes out the same day, or I will have to go ahead and get the e-book.

    • I hope you get it the same time as the hardbacks!! I feel like it’s Christmas counting down to when we get the book! It’s just that Santa wears a postal uniform and he’s coming about 8 months early! 🙂
