Are you looking for similar books to Divergent? If you’ve already finished Veronica Roth’s Divergent trilogy, you’re no doubt hoping to find another book or series of books that offer the same excitement. This Divergent reading list includes several modern-era young adult (aka YA) novels that might be of interest. Up vote the books you’ve read and would recommend for fellow Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant fans, and down vote any you didn’t like. Also, please feel free to add any of your personal favorite novels that are similar to Divergent that might be missing from the list.

Young adult novels are incredibly popular – dystopian novels, in particular. There’s good news: Readers can enjoy a wide variety of YA and adult fiction novels that depict brave, young, people fighting back against an oppressive society. By all means, read The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins if you haven’t already. Many of the books listed here are also similar to The Hunger Games.

Some of the novels listed here that are similar to Divergent are true classics, considered among the greatest dystopian novels ever written. These include George Orwell’s 1984 and of course, Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World.

Keep in mind, as well, that you might want to read several of the novels listed here now, because many will soon be coming to the big screen. In 2014 alone, Lois Lowry’s The Giver and The Maze Runner by James Dashner debuted as major theatrical releases. Check out this list of the next young adult novels that should be adapted to film – it’s an impressive list.

Hopefully fans of the Divergent novels will find something they like just as much – or more – on this list of great books.
