Waiting on Wednesday #5

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine where you share an upcoming release that you're anticipating on reading.

My WoW pic for this week is Insurgent by Veronica Roth (Divergent #2)
Expected Release Date: May 1, 2012

Goodreads Summary:
One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love. 
Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so. 

Why I'm waiting?
I absolutely loved Divergent. I loved the world that Veronica Roth built. It was so so amazing. I loved Tris too. She's one tough girl. She chooses her own path. I can't wait to get inside her head again. I want to read more about Tris and the extraordinary things she does. Besides, Tris kicks ass and everyone should know that! ;]

I also have to comment on the awesomeness that is the cover of Insurgent. When it was revealed I mentioned that it was one of my Top 3 favorite covers. The colors and the design overall is just incredible.
