Distractive Obsessions #03

Distractive Obsessions are books that are going to be released very soon and that I'm dying to read - books that I know I'm going to be obsessed with until I'll finally hold them in my hands and read them.

This week's pick is INSURGENT by Veronica Roth.
It's going to be published on My 1st, 2012 by HarperCollins.
ISBN: 9780007442911 | pre-order: The Book Depository / Amazon / B&N

Read the first two chapters here.

Goodreads Summary:
One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

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.

If you haven't read Divergent, the first book of Veronica Roth's amazing dystopian series, then I should probably ask you why you're wasting your time by reading this post. Go and grab a copy immediately and read it! And you'll be happy you've done this now, because after that ending you'll want to read Insurgent immediately and fortunately it's not long until its release. I'm dying to get my hands on a copy of this sequel and considering the awesome amount of Insurgent-dedicated blog posts during the last weeks I'm not alone in my desperate need. I really hope this second book will be just as awesome as the first! Although I'm already afraid of how awful the wait for the third book will be...

Which book are you obsessing over at the moment?


  1. Just finished Divergent this morning and looking forward to Insurgent :) I'm kind of glad I read it nearer to the release of the next book so I dont have to wait too long :)

  2. I'm getting my ARC of Insurgent within the next week or so. So freaking excited!

  3. Insurgent is one of the books I can't wait to read!

  4. Aww I want to have this book NOW! I'm dying to read it since October...
    But I'm scared of the ending and the long long wait for the third book, too.

  5. :sigh: I still haven't read Divergent, but I do have it on my shelf! And I do have this one pre-ordered as well. I figured I would read them at the same time. :)

  6. Yay! Best pick. <3 Insurgent is the book I have been dying to read ever since I finished Divergent back in May :) Cannot wait for this book. <3 I need it. Need it very, very much :)

  7. I absolutely looove the covers of both the books. I still haven't read Divergent, but it is on my shelf :P Hopefully I can get to it soon :)

  8. I ABSOLUTELY CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS BOOK! All the hype going on about Insurgent is making me so dying to get it. The book trailer is also AWESOME!

    Looking forward to your review when you've read the book, Carina! ♥
