riding the divergent train

So I finally got on the Divergent train and am halfway through the first book. Totally FanGirling right now. Loving everything about it. If obsessing over fictional characters who are much more badass than I were a sport, I would totally be the MVP. (Can we make this a sport Sarah? Think Goodell would fund it?) Hopefully I will have enough time to finish it to catch the movie in theaters! Anyway, last night when I was reading I came across this quote and just fell in love with it.


I wish more people (including myself) felt this way, acted on our thoughts, and stood up for one another more often. Just a real life, deep thought for your morning. Sorry I took it to serious town on a Friday..... 

Now let's get to some links. 

//These photos from the mudslide in Washington will break your heart. 

//How dare you hurt bacon like that. 

//Poor Joe? Poor NHL? Poor Magic Johnson? Poor Trebek

//To Insta or Not to Insta? 

//Stylish people and their stylish tattoos

//What we 20 somethings are saying and what we actually mean. 

//In honor of Divergent I am bringing you a song from the movie soundtrack for #backthatazzup Friday. The whole album is pretty fun, plus it features Chance The Rapper, M83, and Kendrick Lamar. Good stuff people. 



Cheers to your Friday! Hope it's not as rainy as mine.

I think I would have loved the movie if I had not read the book first.

I'm on the third book now and I'm going to have serious withdrawal when I finish it.

I'm always down for a trip to serious town of Fridays, Brooke!

I think the insta flow chat is telling me yes, always selfies.

I finished divergent yesterday and I ended up loving it! It took me a bit to "get into it" but then it picked up and I couldn't put it down!! Love the quote also!!

Talking my husband into taking me to see it Sunday!

I'm 29 for like 6 more months....does that list still count for me? ;-)

Brittany said...

Divergent is spectacular! I'm just waiting for my sis to finish the book so we can see the movie!!

That list of what 20 somethings actually mean is eerily accurate...

This fan club is the cool place to be :)

I haven't read Divergent yet, so far I am resistant to start. I'm not sure I'd like them.

I'm on the third book now, I really want to see the movie though. I'm hoping I make it while it's in theaters.

I didn't read the book Divergent, but saw the movie yesterday (which I almost never do - I'm a huge reader) and I reallllly loved it.
