Yes, I like young adult literature from time to time and I’m not ashamed to admit it. After really beefy, adult books (like A Man and His Ship which is read this summer) I want something that I can easily sail through while feeling like I am on the pulse of pop culture. So I have dove into The Divergent Series by Veronica Roth. So far I am enjoying them, wishing that I could have an extra few minutes on the subway to finish a chapter. What I like best about this series compared to The Hunger Games, or other series of the same ilk, is that The Divergent Series is based in Chicago. I LOVE Chicago (it is one of the only other major cities I would ever consider living in) so it is easy to envision Veronica Roth’s world since she draws on familiar places. I won’t give away any spoilers but give the series a try if you are looking for an easy read during some cold winter days.
