Two "young adult" moms and their teens chat about books together!

Allegiant (Divergent, #3)

Allegiant (Divergent, #3) - Veronica Roth This was definitely my least favorite of the series. The two POV's were too similar (I actually switched to the audiobook to keep them straight, which was PERFECT). Before I switched to audio, I kept having to refer back to the beginning of the chapter to see who was talking. This doesn't happen very often to me when reading dual/multiple POV's. Also, I just didn't connect with this book like I did with Divergent. I think there was too much info (that wasn't that interesting) and not enough action/romance/interesting info. I mean, it was ok....but it wasn't the awesome I'd grown accustomed to. There was still a lot of bickering between Tobias and Tris, which I get, but it's kind of annoying to read.

The second half of the book got much more interesting and intense, however, and I found myself getting sucked back in. It's funny because everyone is upset about the ending, but to me, it fit. I don't think it HAD to happen like that, but I thought it was consistent with the character's established personalities, and frankly, I thought some of the characters were kind of dumb to NOT see it coming.

In the end, I feel kind of detached from it. I still love Divergent, and this didn't change that, but Allegiant, sadly, will not be a favorite. I can't wait to see what Veronica has in store for us next, though!
