Peachy News: Alligiant: New Title of final book of Divergent Series

The moment has finally come that the final book out of the Divergent series by Veronica Roth is announced! The name of the final book will be: Allegiant! The final book of the series will come out on October 22nd. I am quite surprised about the publish date as for some reason I had the feeling that it was going to be much later. But I'm not complaining!:)
So more about the word Allegiant itself, I for one was not so familiar with it. But once I looked it up in trustworthy Dictionary.com, it all made sense:
               
               al·le·giant [uh-lee-juhnt]     
                     adjective
                     1. loyal; faithful.    
                     noun            
                     2. a faithful follower; adherent: allegiants of religious cults.

I think many of us expected the title of the last book of the series to also end in the '-gent' trend. Close enough though, '-giant' definitely sounds similar when spoken out and I think it suits the titles of the rest of the series well: Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant. 


Fans will soon be able to show their allegiance at the box office. The Divergent movie started filming in Chicago in this month and stars Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) and Kate Winslet. It's directed by Neil Burger and will be released by Summit Entertainment (Twilight). - usatoday.com

    1. Yes, it is definitely something to get used to. I wasn't really expecting such a title really. But hopefully by the time the book comes out we will become more accustomed to it ;)

      Thanks for stopping by! :)
