RTW: What faction are you?

This week's topic on Road Trip Wednesday is: What faction are you?

Let's forget for a minute that Insurgent is sitting on my bookshelf and I STILL haven't opened it. We'll pretend that I'm NOT putting other books ahead of it because they are "assigned reading" for a class I'm attending in a few weeks. Geez.

For those reasons alone, maybe I'm Erudite. Or even Abnegation. Since I'm not doing what I really want (ditching the assignment, eating lots of chocolate, reading more of Four...), I'm definitely not Dauntless.

I think I'm gonna go with Amity. I like peace. I don't like ruffling feathers. And I really do just want everyone around me to be happy. Typical mom behavior, I think.

How about you? Which faction are you? Have you read Insurgent yet? Without giving me ANY details (seriously, you will be punished if you spill anything), was it awesome?

I have read Insurgent and it. is. awesome! The ending will leave you in shock! About the factions: It turns out I tend to dauntless but I don't like violence as a solution to problems so I guess I'm a little bit like amity in that sense.

Colin Smith said...

Moms are Dauntless by definition, didn't you know? ;)

Laura Clipson said...

If I could pick one, I would be Erudite, but I'm not all that intelligent, so the one that probably suits me most is Amity :)

Jaime Morrow said...

I'd end up with the Erudite because I love learning and because I'm a total nerd. I wish I could be Dauntless, but I hear they don't allow chickens into their faction.

Cassie Mae said...

Can I pretend to be the intelligent one??

And sadly, Divergent is still sitting on my shelf, only half read. :( where is this thing called time???

Michael Offutt, Phantom Reader said...

Peace sounds like the best option to me.

I so want to read Insurgent, I need more FOUR. LOL. I am an Erudite. Remember they have all the books baby.

Good luck with the assigned reading.

Leslie said...

I think I'd be Erudite, too. Probably a lot of us book lovers and writers would be I'm guessing. Definitely not Dauntless for me!

And I did finally pry Insurgent away from my son's hands and am wanting to read it. But first I'm telling myself to finish the three other half finished books!

Insurgent was super good!

Couldn't be Erudite. School and I do NOT go well together.

Could not be Abegnation. Sometimes maybe, but not all the time.

Candor? Ummm... I don't think so. I tell the truth but couldn't be as direct as they are about it.

Amity, yeah. This could work but I really do think the bad guys deserve punishment. Not big on second chances for really bad crimes, etc.

So... I guess I'm totally Dauntless. My mom used to always worry about me because I didn't really fear anything. In many ways I think that's still the case.

Looks like I need to go get me a copy of Insurgent...asap!

I'm Amity too! And Insurgent was most certainly awesome. Definitely read it soon!!
