YA Crush Tourney - Vote for Four from DIVERGENT


Hi everybody, I'm Becky B. and my blog is Bibliognome.  In this YA Crush Tourney I'm very happy to be advocating for Four, the supremely awesome guy from the Divergent series by Veronica Roth.

I'm so happy that Four has made it to the Sweet Sixteen of the YA Crush Tourney and I would be thrilled if he made it to the next round. :)


*** Four is up against a very tough opponent so Please VOTE  for Four as much and as often as possible and of course encourage others aka everyone you know to vote too.  ***
If you haven't read Divergent here's my review of Divergent and Insurgent.

Divergent has also won plenty of awards as seen on Goodreads (and the bright orange sticker on the cover of the paperback):

"Goodreads Choice Award for Favorite Book of 2011 and for Best Young Adult Fantasy & Science Fiction (2011), ALA Teens' Top Ten Nominee (2012), Children's Choice Book Award Nominee for Teen Choice Book of the Year (2012)"

Vote, Vote, Vote, Vote for Four.  He's chosen Dauntless but believes in the old ways and not what they're doing now.  He has respect for every faction.  
In the world of Divergent choice is everything because once you choose a faction you have to follow their rules or you basically become a pariah.  As the tagline for Divergent says, "One Choice Can Transform You."  Four is definitely a guy that has transformed himself.  

Please make the right choice and choose Four :)

Four's Features:
I really liked Divergent Lexicon's description of Four so I've included it here (be aware if you follow the link that there are some spoilers about Four if you haven't read the books.) -
"He has a spare upper lip, and a full lower lip. His eyes are so deep-set that his eyelashes touch the skin under his eyebrows, and they are dark blue, a dreaming sleeping, waiting color. His voice is deep, and it rumbles. He smirks. He has a stillness about him. He appears tame from the front, by Dauntless standards, but there is a tattoo that peeks out from the back of his t-shirt. His fingers are so long that, the heel of his hand touches one side of Tris’s ribcage, and his fingertips still touch the other side. He is quiet, remarkably self-possessed, and intimidating. He has a faint hollow beneath his cheekbone and taut, defined forearms. His voice is low and smooth and almost soothing. The corners of his mouth turn down naturally and he has a scar on his chin. Even when he glares, his eyes look thoughtful. Their shade of blue is peculiar, so dark it is almost black, with a small patch of lighter blue on the left iris, right next to the corner of his eye. He is muscular, nothing on his body yields. His hair is dark, almost black, especially when he cuts it short."

Name Poem for Four
F - Fearless (well almost)
O - Outstanding
U - Unique
R - Reliable

My Ode to Four
Four knows the score
Dauntless to the core
Feels there has to be more
Knows each faction and its lore
May just be what you're looking for


The Dauntless faction, which Four is a major part of, were made even cooler to me when I read how much they love cake.

In honor of Four making it to the Sweet Sixteen Tiny Reverse Vampire and I made our own version of Dauntless cake.  Ours is made from a dark chocolate cake mix, has vanilla frosting and of course some very special decorations which can be seen in the picture at the top of the page.


Now sit down for a spell and listen while I regale you with songs about how awesome Divergent and Four are:

Title: Hunt for Crushes
(Sung to the tune of See My Vest)

You see some gals hunt for sport,
Others hunt to court,
The only thing I'm hunting for
Is a crush worthy of meeee.
See my Four, see my Four,
Always hot, never a bore.

Feel that tension, not to mention
Not a bit of apprehension.

See the way, he doesn't stray.
Me oh my, I'd be there to stay.

Though life treated him rough
he stays strong and extra tough.

Never fear when he's around
Feet firmly on the ground.

Knows a lot of ways to slay
He lives the Dauntless way

See my Four!
See my Four!
Oh, please, wont you see my Fouuuuur

I really like my Four. :)
 


Best Quotes said by/or about Four that prove he's who you should vote for:

"I have a theory that selflessness and bravery aren't all that different." - Four (pg. 336)

“A brave man acknowledges the strength of others.” – Four (p. 95)

"Whoever he is, I like him. It's easier to admit that to myself now, in the dark, after all that just happened. He is not sweet or gentle or particularly kind. But he is smart and brave, and even though he saved me, he treated me like I was strong. That is all I need to know.” - Tris (pg. 288-289)

  1. I voted for Four. Seriously, I have to say this, how on earth is Magnus, a supporting character defeating Four, a major character? I don't get it.

    1. Thanks so much for supporting Four. :) Yeah, the characters from that series have a crazy amount of support and the incentives from the author probably help too.
