ALLEGIANT is the third and final full-length book in Author Veronica Roth’s Divergent trilogy.
There aren’t very many YA books releasing the week of October 22nd, but even if there were I would still have chosen ALLEGIANT by Veronica Roth as the book to watch this week. And even though there’s a ton of hype surrounding this series, especially with the upcoming film release, I am still dying to find out how this series ends.
I had no clue ALLEGIANT‘s release date was just around the corner. I feel like I’ve been waiting forever to see what happens in this last installment in the series. So I’m more excited than ever that in just a couple weeks and a little bit of change I’ll be able to find out.
I’d been holding off reading the book’s description until now, so the wait wouldn’t be too torturous. But now that I have… Oh. My. Gosh! I am dying, just dying, to experience this story from the dual perspectives of Tris and… Tobias? I’m dying to know whose heart has changed. I’m dying to find out what secrets will be revealed. And I’m anxious to see if the ending will be happy, bittersweet or tragic.
I was not the biggest fan of dystopia when I started reading this series. But everyone told me that DIVERGENT was a definite must read. I’d never enjoyed The Handmaid’s Tale so the similarities initially put me off. However all of that wariness I felt quickly disappeared once I got further and further into this story, became more connected with the characters and got to experience the expansiveness of the author’s world.
I made a connection with the writing and was intrigued by the story, but it wasn’t until I read INSURGENT that I fell madly in love with this series, its characters, its world. It was so completely epic. And the moment I finished I was desperate to get my hands on the next installment. To find out how the author would wrap up this series. To find out whether all the characters I’d grown to love would make it to the end. To find out whether I’d be left a complete and total wreck.
I can’t wait for ALLEGIANT‘s release so that I can get answers to those three questions in the description. I can’t wait to find out what “impossible choices” Tris will have to make. And I am anxious to find out just how different Tris’ new reality is from the one she left behind.
The description mentions this book is over five hundred pages, but if it’s anything like the previous books in the series it will be a super fast read. So I’m glad it is as long as it is so that this story won’t feel rushed and saying goodbye won’t come quite so quickly.
So while I am excited to read the first book in Lauren Kate’s new series and I’m totally intrigued by Mary Gray’s THE DOLLHOUSE ASYLUM, there was no other option for me but ALLEGIANT as the book to spotlight for the week of October 22nd. It’s the book I’ve been anxiously awaiting since the moment I finished INSURGENT, it’s the very first YA dystopian series I fell in love with, and with two characters whose outcomes I’m very much invested in, ALLEGIANT is the book to watch this week.

About the Book
One choice will define you.
What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?
The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.
But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.
Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.
