Winner of the DIVERGENT advance copy!

Yesterday, I used random.org to find out who’ll get the ARC of DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth.
The winner was Lisa M. Basso! Her book is on its way now.

I look forward to finding out Ms. Lisa’s thoughts on DIVERGENT, as it seems she has a bloggy of her own. (No pressure, Lisa!  ;)

Big thanks to all who entered. That giveaway sure was fun, so I’ll just have to do it again soon.

Win a free advance copy (ARC) of Divergent by Veronica Roth!

I can’t remember reading a book faster.

That’s my seven-word review of Divergent. I missed my train stop while reading it. Oh, hey! There’s my eight-word version.

In Divergent, author Veronica Roth deftly plunges you into a future Chicago. A dystopian Chicago, where sixteen-year-old kids must pick one of five factions to belong to for life. Where faction ties are stronger than blood, and unrest between factions has begun to knock them off-kilter. Where, after learning in an “aptitude test” that she’s a wee bit unusual, protagonist Beatrice Prior makes a choice that surprises even her.

Hooked already, no? Okay, well, you’ll sense almost immediately that Ms. Roth is a true devotee of sci-fi goodness. She draws from a little Ender’s Game, a little Giver, and a whole lot of originality. I’ve even heard talk of Divergent hitting the big screen.

I’m highly impressed with Veronica Roth’s debut novel, and I’ll keep an eye on her work, starting with the complete Divergent trilogy.

Want an advance copy of Divergent before it comes out next month?

Comment below by Wednesday, April 27 and you could win! I’ll use random.org to pick a winner.
