Top Ten Books For People Who Like Veronica Roth

veronica roth divergent insurgent

1Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas- There is an epic-ness about Throne of Glass that reminded me of Divergent. There’s a strong female heroine who knows how to kick some major butt. Also a similarity to Roth’s debut novel. ;)

2Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo- This is a book EVERYONE should read, and especially Veronica Roth fans. Although it has more fantasy than her books, Shadow and Bone is a well-written novel with tons of suspense and action. Love, love, love.

3Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder — The science fiction element of Inside Out made me think of Divergent. There setting also involves the sense of isolation from the rest of the world and not really knowing what’s out there.

4The Selection by Kiera Cass - Just like how I couldn’t put down Roth’s books, the same goes for The Selection. I skipped through 400, 500 pages like it was nothing.

5Glitch by Heather Anatasiu - Not trusting “the man” is a huge theme in Glitch and is definitely present in both books.

6Masque of Red Death by Bethany Griffin - Although these books are super similar, I definitely think fans of Divergent would love this book. There are TONS of surprises, and the characters are interesting and flawed (in good ways).

7Delirium by Lauren Oliver — Another awesome YA dystopian that’s taken the genre by storm. Complicated romance included.

8Matched by Ally Condie — Although I still need to finish Crossed (agh!), Matched is the beginning of a great dystopian trilogy.

9Wither by Lauren DeStefano — Set in my home state of Florida, Wither is stunning in its descriptions of life and sacrifice.

10Incarceron by Catherine Fisher - Action/adventure (Dauntless) fans will love this romantic mystery.

Any Veronica Roth-esque books I missed?

    Well, the Hunger Games series goes without question for those who like dystopia. Another one might be Cinder, of the Lunar Series, by Marissa Mayer. (And we could go back to a real oldie like the Giver, or Gathering Blue, by Lois Lowry for classic dystopia.)
