Dauntless required reading

Uh huh, first of all, okay. Face Your Fears. I'll use twitter for that.
My Fears. Oh, God knows I have many. I hate resposability. I do. It scares me like hell. I don't want to grow up - in sense - becoming an adult. This is scaring the shit out of me. Seriously. I mean, I want to be a teenager forever. Growing up is just adding the resposability. You get my point. Anything to change.. yeah, in a way I want to move away from my country and start over, a clean break, you know? On the other side, I am so so scared of it. Probably my biggest fear is being left alone. To have noone. I am a sociable person, and so I need people to function normally. I am scared of hurting people. I never want to hurt someone (ok, apart from people who had hurt me first. I'll always have my revenge :P And if I don't do it, well then karma will, for sure ;)) But sometimes happens that you do hurt someone, even if you didn't mean it. And that sucks. I fear spiders. I fear my Professor of Social and Cultural Antropology. OMG Tuesday I really hope my exam will go ok. I don't know what I will do, if it doesn't. Seriously, I don't know. Um, I reconsidered it - my biggest fear is that I will never be good enough for my parents. Especially my mum. And that sucks balls, royally.

Okay, enough of my Fears. Dauntless require reading. Uh huh, thinking of it, well, it's kind of difficult for me to understand, what to talk about exactly. Dauntless require reading. Okay.

So, if you've read Divergent, you should probably know by now what it means to be brave. It means to have a courage to do what is right and face the problems with your head held high. To fight for yourself and for those you love. That even if sometimes it's really hard, you know you need to do what must be done. 

When I think of the word brave, I think of Tris. She is so so good. And even though she it small and young, she proved to us all, that she is brave. And she teached me a very big lesson. No matter how small you think you are, no matter how insignificant you think you are, there is a fire in you and if you want something and you have a will to do so, you can do it. Always.

Why I chose #TeamDauntless in the first place?
Well, while reading the book I knew from the beggining I would have chosen Dauntless. The were reckless, they had courage, they were brave. And they were exciting. I love exciting things. That's maybe why I want a bad boy instead of a nice guy, because I want excitment. I want adventure. I want to feel the adrenaline pump in my veins. And this is, after all, what Dauntless are.


So, if you want to know more about being brave and what this represent, you should totally read Divergent by Veronica Roth. This book is amazing. It had inspired me to write my first book review ever! And believe me, I was afraid of writing reviews :P I faced my fear after I finished this awesome book. And I am so so super excited about the sequel Insurgent coming out in May! Can't wait to read it :)

Uh huh, I somehow managed to understand what the title Dauntless requireD reading now. God, I feel so stupid. lol. It's actually a list of books that Dauntless are required to read. HA! I've read the title wrong :P Haven't seen it coming :P 
The list:
The Hunger Games - Because if Katniss isn't brave, then who actually is?
The Vampire Academy - Going after the man you love with the intend to kill him to save him from his faith of being a Strigoi? Yes, Rose Hathaway has it all.
The Iron Fey serie - Meghan is brave. She faced the false iron king with no power at all. And she won.

So, which #Team are you? Which faction have the values you value most? And which are your fears? How do you fight them? Let me know! :)

Very cool. I'd like to think I'd be Team Dauntless. I'd probabily be Erudite. Thanks for sharing!

Team Dauntless!!! I loved Vampire Academy Rose was so kickass

I wish I could say I'd be Dauntless if I lived in Tris's world, but I don't think I'd be able to go through the initiation like they had to and jump off trains and such! x) LOL I think I'd like to be born into Amity and stay there because it seems less dangerous and more peaceful -- and it's on the pretty cover of Insurgent too! :)

But I love love LOVE that you're Dauntless, Nea -- I think that'd be the PERFECT fit for you! Maybe we could visit each other's factions? You'd have an EPIC group of people, especially with Rose, Katniss, and Meghan on your side! ;) <3

Thank you Mimi :) :) And I think you'd be perfect too for Amity :) Yeah, totally! You're my Amity girl ;) <3

I've never considered which faction I'd fit into. I'm really not into jumping on or off trains, but there is something very intriguing about the Dauntless. Or maybe I'm just obsessed with Four! I'll have to think about this though and figure out which would best fit me.
