“My mother’s says there’s an art to losing yourself, but I haven’t figured it out yet. I’m supposed to never think of myself, to always help others. To never look too long in the mirror.”

Divergent (2014) dir. Neil Burger

MUST READ: 

Divergent by Veronica Roth

In Divergent we are introduced to Beatrice Prior, who lives in a future dystopian Chicago. Their society is divided up into a series of five different factions that nurture a particular virtue in its members. There are the Candor (the honest), the Abnegation (the selfless), the Amity (the peaceful), the Dauntless (the brave), and the Erudite (the intelligent). At sixteen years old, on a chosen day, all citizens must choose which faction that they will devote the rest of their lives to.

I'm a fan of the divergent books, any other recommendations you think i may like? :)

I made these cool lists (well I think they are cool) of books for each faction of Divergent when the first movie came out. Maybe one of those will interest you? 

You can find descriptions of the books and explanations on why they fit each faction here.

Other than that, my go-to recommendations for action-y sci-fi with a bit of dystopian or post-apocalpytic thrown in are: 

  • Under the Never Sky series by Veronica Rossi  (futuristic, romance, special powers!) 
  • The Darkest Minds series by Alexandra Bracken (special powers, escape, conspiracy!) 
  • All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill (time travel, dystopian, romance!) 

Hope you like some of these!
