The Sequel

I waited for weeks and weeks and weeks for the third book in Veronica Roth’s Divergent series to come out. Titled, Allegiant, I did something I never, ever do. I pre-ordered it.

The night of October 21st came and surprisingly, it was delivered early to my iPad! Hooray! Except, I had no time that week to read it, as I was slammed at work. When I finally dug in on the weekend, I sighed in disappointment. Once again, not as good as the original book. The first book was magnificent. One of my favorites actually, of all time. That’s saying a lot as I’ve read lots and lots of books in my lifetime. The second book was good, but not as good as the first.

Isn’t that how most things work though? The original is usually way better than the sequel? Like Grease or Dirty Dancing. I didn’t even bother watching the sequels. I heard they sucked. A lot of the time a band’s sophomore album pales in comparison to the first.

But, one thing that will be way more awesome the second time around is the future relationship in my life. Nothing against my ex, mind you, but just for myself, I am stronger, wiser and not willing to settle for anything less than the very best.
