Insurgent Bloggers' Challege - Team Candor

I am in Team Candor! Yes, you read it heard me right!

Insurgent by Veronica Roth

The super awesome people at HarperCollins Children's Books have set up a challenge for UK book bloggers! The bloggers have been put into each of the five Factions of the Divergent series (Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless and Erudite) to become teams. The aim? To be the Faction to post the most reviews of Insurgent in the first week of May, between 1st and 8th May! The winning Faction receives goodies! Is this not the coolest thing ever! We are at war!

Being a book blogger, I'm so stoked to be in Team Candor, as the Candor Faction is all about being honest - is that not what we book bloggers aim to do in our reviews? Suits me just fine!

The other members of Team Candor are:

Joint Team Leaders:
Carly of Writing from the Tub and Sarah of Feeling Fictional

Emma of Book Monkey
Jesse of Books 4 Teens
Kayleigh of K-Books
Jo of Once Upon a Bookcase
Darren of Bart's Bookshelf
Caroline of Big Book Little Book
Keren of Gothic Angel
Iffath of Painting With Words
Hanna of Booking in Heels
M of We Sat Down
Georgina of Chick Litaholic

What a team, eh? :D

Now I must be honest... I've yet to read Divergent. I know, I know, bad Jo! But I am SO excited to! Once I'm done with the book I'm currently reading, I'll be picking it up and shooting a review your way ASAP, all ready for Insurgent!

Follow everything that the Factions are getting up to on Twitter by checking out #InsurgentUK, and ours specifically at #CandorUK.


  1. Welcome to Candor Jo! I'm really excited about the whole thing and hope you love Divergent as much as I did :o)

    1. Thank you! Yesss, it's going to be fun! :D

  2. You're in for a treat with Divergent! I just hope the second book can live up the same standards - don't you hate when the great start to a series is let down by the others?

    Anyway, I'm sure it'll be great and I can't wait to read Insurgent.


    1. Oooh, I know what you mean! Though I have heard that Insurgent is better than Divergent! :D Sounds good! Looking forward to them both.

      Go Candor, indeed!

  3. We Sat Down loved Divergent unanimously. We're looking forward to Insurgent. If we being honest :), it was the first book on our Wishlist this year!

    1. Oooh, this series sounds more promising with every person I talk to about it! Getting super excited! :D

  4. OMG. JO. DIVERGENT. HARDCORE LOVE FOR THAT BOOK!!! My absolute favourite read of 2011 and goddamn, Insurgent was INCREDIBLE. AUKSJAHDSDLKSJDHDAS <---- about as coherent as I am at 1:50am and thinking about these books :D

    Anywho, so exciting what you guys are doing! Wish Australia had done something like that, but oh well. I am super happy to watch you guys all battle it out!! :D

    CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT YOU THINK OF THE BOOKS! *crosses fingers that you love them*

    1. I'm sure I will! Really looking forward to getting started with Divergent - and I received Insurgent today! *happy dance*

      With all this enthusiam and love the series, if I hate them, I am not going to be a happy bunny, haha! :D
