Noah and Mara are most certainly on our list of fave YA couples (Tris and Four are number one, of course). The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer trilogy has a little bit for everyone; it’s part mystery, romance, thriller and supernatural. Read this book and then read the sequel and then come talk to us because we have so many feelings about this series.

These are some of our recommendations for post-Allegiant reads! Do you have any suggestions for books to read now that Divergent has concluded? Let us know at @SavvyReader and @HCCFrenzy!

And remember, just because the series is over does NOT mean the Divergent fun will end… there’s still the movie coming out in March. Let the countdown begin!

Happy Reading!
