Look. I got them. So pretty :) I'm so excited to start reading, but I thought I'd take some time out of my precious reading time to share this moment with you guys. You better feel pretty damn special. (I also may or may not be heading to Sparknotes considering the last time I read Divergent and Insurgent was most likely well over 6 months ago. Shhhh, don't tell. Though I do suppose it's not that big of a deal, and a refresher isn't that necessary because I've read each book upwards of 7 times. Hmph.)
Yeah, if you guys have been logging on, you would've seen that I changed my currently reading to Allegiant from Starters. Starters is on hold for now.
So, yes. I finally have the final book of the Divergent trilogy in my grasp. And though I'm phsyched to start reading, the feeling is more... bittersweet. And definitely surreal. Behind Maximum Ride, Divergent is one of the very first books that got me into reading. When I first bought it from my school bookfair, I literally could not put it down. I stayed up late reading it. Even when my parents finally told me to go to bed, I was too excited about was going on in the book that it took me a while to fall asleep. And I'm honestly not ready to let that story go. It has been such a big part of my life, and it's always on my mind, and the fact that when I finish Allegiant, there will be no more Divergent? It makes me sad. Incredibly, depressingly sad. I feel like I'm losing a good friend, and I haven't even started yet. I'm not ready for it to be over. Very plainly, I'm not. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited to see how it all wraps up, but once it's over, it's over. That's it. All done. And to me, that's sad.
Sorry about the sappiness above. I can get that way sometimes. So, Initiates, happy reading. And Veronica Roth, I did not go through this much emotional trauma for a crappy ending, so don't disappoint me.
Read On,
