Dusty Reads #1

Dusty Reads is a weekly meme, hosted by Xpresso Reads featuring a book that has been sitting unread on our shelves for some time. To participate and more information, click here.

Mockingjay (Hunger Games #3) by Suzanne Young
This is the final book in the ground-breaking "Hunger Games" trilogy. Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what' worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss' family, not her friends, not the people of District 12.

Siobhán: I know! You are all thinking Seriously?!? Why haven't I read this yet? I have no clue, I honestly don't. I just haven't gotten around to reading it even though I loved book 1 and 2 :S

Divergent by Veronica Roth

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.

Destiny: I've had this book since its release day and am completely intrigued by the idea of "virtue" factions and the world Veronica Roth has created - plus I love dystopian novels. That said, I can honestly say I have no idea why I haven't read it sooner. With all the Insurgent (book 2) buzz forming, I am beginning to thing now may be the time to dust off Divergent and give it a go!
