Feature Friday - Popular book I haven't read

Follow Friday is a feature created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  It's a fun blog hop where you meet other book bloggers and find people to follow.
What book (or TV show or movie) have you not read that seemingly everyone else has?
Divergent.  I saw some meh reviews from some trusted friends on Goodreads and kept putting it off.  Then with later books came out there was SUCH a huge hype machine that I just go too annoyed to even go back and read it.  It's languishing on my to be read shelf on Goodreads but I don't know if it'll ever happen.

Oh bummer. That was one I decided to give a try myself since soooo many people were talking about it. I don't usually read the popular books unless I think it's appealing to me. Divergent was one that got me a little interested and ending up liking it a LOT!

The first movie is about to come out in March next year. Which is kind of what prompted me to get on the ball and read the second book so I can read the third book before the actors' images take over my subconscious when reading. It was a little tricky trying to read Insurgent since the cast has been listed for the most part! Hopefully I can get Allegiant in before the constant previews start!

Here's my Follow Friday

Have a GREAT weekend!

Hopping through. I put of Divergent too because of all the hype and because I don't like dystopia. But I ended up loving it.

Its really good.I don't even like dystopians all that much, but I LOVED Divergent. I think you should give it a try. At least watch the movie and see if you think the hype is deserved.
