Divergent Nation: I Joined Team Amity!

Team AmityIn case you hadn’t heard the sequel to Veronica Roth’s dystopian Divergent, called Insurgent, will be released on May 1!

YAY!!! I’m so excited about this and have been waiting patiently for this one to come out!

I read Divergent, loved it (seriously LOVED IT) and reviewed it here. If you know nothing about Divergent, then check out the review to learn more about the five factions and basically what exactly this is that I’m talking about. :)

Insurgent by Veronica RothWell, here’s what Good Reads has to say about Insurgent.

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.

Sounds pretty awesome huh?!  Well, to help promote the release of Insurgent, Harper Teen has selected book bloggers around the country to lead each of the five factions.  I was not one of the original bloggers chosen to lead, but I did choose to join Team Amity!

The Amity faction is described as follows:

AMITY: 1. friendship; peaceful harmony.
2. mutual understanding and a peaceful relationship, especially between nations; peace; accord.
3. cordiality
So basically, this faction values peace, kindness and beauty above all else.
Why would I decide to choose Team Amity?  Well lets instead talk about why you should join the great faction that is Team Amity.
  • If you love music, art, and even reading fiction, you belong on Team Amity. We’re not just about peace, we’re also about enjoying life’s simple pleasures.
  • Our faction believes in common consent, and reaching decisions that everyone can agree on.
  • We are self-sustaining and have GREAT food.
  • And, of course, Four thinks we are beautiful.

If you loved Divergent and want to be a part of the Divergent Nation, then go ahead and join Team Amity!  We’d love to have you.  You can find out more about joining here.
