If you’ve been reading this blog or following me on Goodreads or Twitter, you know my thoughts on Insurgent (hint: I love it!). But it’s a young adult book, so why not have a young adult review it? Well here, on release day, we have that opportunity! One of my 8th graders, Nicole, posted the following review after reading the ARC last week. Enjoy!
Well, I guess book reviews start somewhere, but I can NOT come up with anything good. I can’t express how amazing this book was in any words. EVER. When I first finished it, my first thought was: WOW. (I then proceeded to run around spazzing out). My second thought was: NO, I HAVE TO WAIT A WHOLE YEAR FOR THE NEXT ONE TO COME OUT! HOW IS THIS FAIR? I AM DYING INSIDE!!! I still proceeded to spazz out. So anyways, this book was amazing for many reasons. First, all the emotions. One minute you wanted to laugh out loud, the next you wanted to pee your pants, the next you were freaking out (hoping no one would die), the next moment you were feeling the pain, anger, happiness, and every emotion Tris felt. You felt like you were in the story. You felt like you were in the battles & lived in the factions. I can not express how much I loved this book, so this is as close as I may get. This is definitely not a formal book review. But I just NEEDED to somehow express my feelings for this book.
So there’s my book review. All in all, Insurgent was amazing, astounding, bewildering, breathtaking, extraordinary, impressive, marvelous, miraculous, spectacular, staggering, startling, striking, stunning, stupefying, stupendous, wonderful, and wondrous.
Needless to say, she’s pretty excited. Now get out there and read Insurgent!
