I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Summit Entertainment. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Just a few months ago, The Hubby and I saw Divergent for the first time. I had not read any of the books at the time, so it was all new to me. And I loved it. I immediately picked up the first book and read through the entire series very quickly. I have SO MANY THOUGHTS on all of it, so let’s have a book club about some time, ok? I’ll add that to my list…

Since we JUST saw the first movie, we were fortunate to not have to wait long to see the second movie and I was positively giddy about it opening around my birthday! The Divergent Series: Insurgent was released March 20th in 2D, Digital 3D, IMAX® 3D and RealD™ 3D – basically any way you want to see it in the theaters! The movie did not disappoint – made for a great date night!


This second installment of the series (based on the book series by Veronica Roth) is full of action, excitement and suspense, a lot of heart and emotion, intense stunt work and visual effects – all great things to watch on the big screen!

I’m actually not writing to review the movie today – I have all sorts of thoughts on book vs. movie – but I do want to share a few things that stood out to me in watching these films.

While the whole Divergent series was targeted towards young adults, I found myself very intrigued by the story line. We all find ourselves wondering where we fit in. We all want to believe we are doing the right thing, but what do we do when that conflicts with what someone else thinks is right? I’m definitely not a teenager, but I connected with the journey of Tris as she tries to find her place, overcome evil with her gifts, and above all, seek the truth. I think her flaws made her even more relatable to me.
