Bookish Survey: Divergent Edition

I hate to jump on bandwagons, but with the new movie, and the fact that my mom has read all the books in the series (I’ve only read the first), I’ve decided to make a bookish survey based on the Divergent factions. I could never chose a faction to be in myself, but I can certainly chose books that would fit right in.

Abnegation/The Selfless

Name a character who puts others ahead of themselves at all times: I think Julie from Enthusiasm (by Polly Shulman) was really selfless. Then again, she couldn’t stand up for herself, say what she thought, or give herself a little credit, but that fits Abnegation perfectly!

Amity/The Peaceful

Name a book without much action: Thirteenth Child, by Patricia C. Wrede. Basically Eff’s life story, a fast-paced thriller it isn’t.

Candor/The Honest

Name a book that was brutally honest about a tough subject: The Book Thief, definitely. One word. Holocaust.

Dauntless/The Brave

Name a book with a groundbreaking plot: Slayers, by C.J. Hill. Dragons, summer camp, and superpowered teens destined to fight them? Wow. Just, wow.

Erudite/The Intelligent

Name a character who’s smarts border on genius: Miranda Bloom, from the Geek High series (by Piper Banks). Technically she is a genius since she goes to a school for prodigies. Though there’s a difference between school smarts and social smarts, but I digress.
