Posted May 18, 2011 by Sara | Novel Novice 2 Comments

Thanks to the folks at HarperTeen, today we have one more fun exclusive featuring Divergent author Veronica Roth — and some fun factoids to consider while reading (or after reading) Divergent:

Top 10 Things I Googled While Writing Divergent

  1. “How many floors does the Hancock building in Chicago have?”
  2. “How to treat a bullet wound” (relatedly: “bullet removal” and “recovery time for bullet wounds”)
  3. “Exposure therapy” + “overcoming phobias”
  4. “How high up is the world’s highest zipline?”
  5. “Map of Navy Pier”
  6. “What climate do peanuts grow in?”
  7. “What is The Bean sculpture in Millennium Park made of?”
  8. “Symbols of knowledge”
  9. “Puritan surnames”
  10. “Amygdala” + “part of brain responsible for processing fear”
