"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Insurgent by Veronica Roth
Releases on May 1, 2012
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.
New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.

I'm also proud to announce that on choosing day I chose to join the AMITY FACTION!
Reasons I picked Amity:
1) On the Faction Test on Facebook, I tested as Amity
2) I love how they represent peace and love and kindness
3) One of the main attributes of Amity is creativity -- as a writer, I have lots of that!
4) I believe the bravest thing a person can do is handle conflict with kindness, and work things out through conversation and understanding the views of others around them.
5) The Amity Faction seems to be a pleasant place to live.
