So, you loved Divergent and read tons of other post-apocalyptic and/or dystopian YA and now you are looking for something different? How about picking a book based on your favorite faction from the Divergent series? 

We’ve selected books we think members of Dauntless, Candor, Erudite, Amity, and Abnegation would like and included a mix of realistic, historical, sci-fi, and fantasy so every reader could discover a new book they’ll enjoy!

If you’re excited about the Divergent movie release, be sure and come to our party on Thursday, March 20th! You’ll be sorted into your faction, play games, make crafts, have a chance to win movie passes, and of course get a Dauntless chocolate cupcake. 

I made these for work, but you can see blurbs for each book featured and an explanation for why they fit each faction on my blog

“This seems like a better way to channel money to librarians than my previous strategy, which was incurring exorbitant late fees,” Snicket says.
