    Trying to decide between 3 books

    Advertisements
    Has anyone read, matched, divergent, or dilirium? I am trying to decide between those on what to read next.

    I read Divergent and loved it. I thought it was better than The Hunger Games. And the second book in the series comes out pretty soon.

    I read matched right after I had finished the Hunger Games and it was WAY too similar for me to really love it. Not a bad book but my advice would be to not read it right after reading/watching HG cause it'll feel like a knock-off somehow

    Divergent is SOOO good. It is a good story and a has a cute romance. I tried to read matches, but the diction was so horrible when the characters speak, I couldn't get into it.

    Delirium, Divergent then Matched. Matched is just so so. There is way too many other interesting dystopians out there than Matched.

    Oh, my goodness, I can't even explain to you how much I loved that trilogy... Soooooo good!!! Also, I am currently reading Divergent (for about the 4th time), which I think is a fantastic book; one of my all-time favorites. And the sequel comes out on May 1st!

    I read Delirium and LOVED that one, but I was wicked disappointed in the sequel. Admittedly, I skimmed through it looking for a certain person, so I probably missed a lot of the story. I'm going to try to read it again once I get over my disappointment.

    I will do what God asks me to do; I will give God what I cannot do; and no matter what, I will trust the Lord.

    I picked up Delirium to read because Wal-Mart was sold out of Divergent. And I am already half way done reading it! I like it a lot so far
