Divergent a must read for Hunger Games fans

The first book in the series

The first book in the series

If you really enjoyed The Hunger Games series and you are at a bit of a loss to know what to read next, then have a look at the excellent  Must Reads for Hunger Games Fans list. This has been put together by two American sisters, Leslie and Julia, on their blog “Twobusybrunettes”. You can download the list which includes a Hunger Games similarity rating and a book description for 25 books; this should certainly keep you going.

In fact we have many of the books on this list in our library including Divergent by Veronica Roth. The “Twobusybrunettes” give it an 8 out of 8 star rating for similarity. It takes a few chapters to set the scene and then the pace really steps up. The second book in the series, Insurgent is equally exciting and the third book is due to be published later this year. It should be no surprise to learn that a film is planned directed by Neil Burger with Shailene Woodley cast as Tris, and Kate Winslet possibly about to join the cast.

If you can’t wait for the film due to be released in 2014, then I recommend you read the book and have a look at this trailer.
