     Goodreads Description: The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

Okay….So…This is my review/discussion on Allegiant By Veronica Roth. Obviously, if you haven’t read the whole trilogy, go and read it because I’m about to spoil a whole lot and go on a long rant. Just a warning.

While reading this, I found out that it was a terrible idea to go on Tumblr, Twitter, and YouTube. People were expressing their opinions and posting their reviews and no one was happy. I kept hearing things about the ending and that people were crying. Curious, I started speed reading. I finally reached the end excited to see what all of the hype was about. I was expecting something truly epic, but that didn’t happen. Instead, Tris died and I felt nothing. Totally numb. For about a day until it all started to hit me. It got to the point that every time I thought about it, I wanted to bawl my eyes out. There were too many feels. I felt confused, angry, frustrated, and speechless.

To be honest, I thought that the book was boring. Just 526 pages of nonsense just so that the book ended in Tris’s death. I’m going to start at the beginning: Tris and Four’s POV. I didn’t like Four’s POV because it was boring and half the time I wouldn’t  even know that it was Four until he started complaining about Marcus and Evelyn.

And all of that crap about the GP and GD was just so annoying and felt like it had been done in every other cheesy sci-fi movie. When Four fund out that he wasn’t Divergent, he started acting like a baby. Okay Four, so you’re not Divergent, big deal. You still have Divergent like qualities, that’s still pretty cool. (I’m talking to a character, who can’t talk back to me. Yeah, I’m sane.)

I’m going to end this review right here because if I go on, there will be no stopping me from going on a full rant. I give this book 3 out of 5 stars. I was and still am, disappointed in it. There are good ways and bad ways to end series/trilogy’s and this was a bad way. Another example is Requiem by Lauren Oliver. Let me know what you thought and I’ll talk to y’all later.

    HELLO!!!
    I was wondering if you would be interested in assisting in the launch of my to-be vlog series The Readers Write this summer!
    It will be a culmination of thoughts of what readers want in upcoming novels and what they hope to achieve in their OWN writing.
    The Vlog will be divided into different genres where “expert readers” will give their commentary about what they see too much, what they never see, what they hate and what they love.
    The Readers Write will also supply reviews to viewers on specific genres/novels!

    This will help young writers to get their voice/name out there! I will be targeting published authors to get involved as well, but first I need a dedicated following.

    I have about 10+ vloggers already, but I was wondering if you would like to get involved! Check out this post http://shrienswritingblog.wordpress.com/2014/02/22/calling-readers-and-writers-you-are-needed-for-some-serious-business/ and email me at salshabasy@gmail.com !
