Time to Move On?

So you'll probably all know that for years now Divergent by Veronica Roth has been my favourite book. But recently I've been thinking, is it time to move on? Is it time to find another go-to favourite book which I'll rave about like crazy whenever it gets mentioned?

I love Divergent with all my heart but there are so many worthy books out there I've yet to read and one of them could be just as perfect for me. However, I must say, they are up against stiff competition. I related to Divergent like I've never related to any other book. Especially the main character. I've never been able to understand every single decision an MC has made in any book until I came across Divergent and Tris. I completely understood why she did everything she did - I related to her on so many different levels.


So though I may be on the look-out for a new favourite, Divergent will by no means mean anything less to me than what it does right now. I'd just like to find another book which can be set on the same pedestal because it's been SO long since I've read a book I truly and completely loved in every possible way like I did Divergent.

Are you ready to move on to a new favourite or have you recently discovered a favourite book? What do you look for?

Happy Reading,
Rachel xoxo

  1. That was me with The Fault In Our Stars, I still love it with all my heart to this very day. But when I read All the Bright Places, it touched me like no other book. TFIOS is amazing but I just feel like nothing could beat the mass of emotions I felt when reading All the Bright Places.

  2. I totally feel this post! I get super attached to books and compare everything else I read (even completely unrelated books, or different topics) to this novel. But I also think that sometimes this stops me from enjoying new books 100%; I'm too busy comparing them or thinking 'I wish this person was more like *character* in *current book obsession*.. Oops!

  3. Great post! My favourite book/series changes all the time - when I read a book/series I absolutely love, it becomes my favourite. But then in a few months time I read another book/series that - at the time - I feel I love more! Although I do still love the original book - I have a massive special place in my heart for all the books I've loved :)

  4. Oooh, I really enjoyed reading this! I had a sort of denial state about what my favourite book was, and until I DID find my favourite book - Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, I realised that I'd never understood a character as well as I understood Cath. You may have inspired a post Rachel xx

  5. I have a few absolute all-time favourites, but there are some that I've read recently that add themselves to that list if they really stand out. I'll always love The Rosie Black Chronicles by Lara Morgan for example (a YA sci-fi series), but I've also really been touched by Ginger Scott's contemporary novels. It can depend on what I'm reading at the time, though there will always be books that'll stay close to my heart no matter what. Great post Rachel!
