Unravel Me was one of my most anticipated reads for 2013 and Mafi gave me exactly what I craved from her lyrical writing style to the way she captures Juliette’s fears and thoughts. I was completely swept up in the second installment of the Shatter Me series. A few twist, a messy, wonderful, rip-your-heart-out-love triangle and a fight for the oppressed kept me spellbound.
I loved Simmons’ debut novel Article 5 and was excited about returning to the world she created in this gripping, post-apocalyptic dystopian. Breaking Point brought us deeper into this world as Ember and Chase struggle to save friends and join the Resistance. Once again I was captivated by the characters and the stark, government controlled world they live in.
*Scratches wrist* I absolutely loved The Hunt book one in this trilogy and was excited to begin The Prey. My plan was to read a few chapters and then continue with another ARC I was reading. Not! Fukuda plunges us right back into the tale and the pacing and world building held me captive and I literally consumed this in a few hours. This is such a terrifying and original tale. Fukuda is brilliant and I can barely wait for the final book.
Slated is Teri Terry’s debut novel and it offers up a clever and rather terrifying dystopian world where those whom the government claims are terrorist are offered a second chance by having their memories erased. This process is called Slating. This chilling novel kept me captivated with its strong protagonist and suspenseful plot.
I am so glad that I had a chance to read ‘Til the World Ends and recommend it to fans of dystopian and post-apocalyptic worlds.
Fans of Stephen King, James Patterson and Dean Kootz will enjoy Uninvited. I literally could not put this down, despite its meandering pace; I became completely caught up in the events that occurred within it’s pages. Jensen delivers a thought provoking, creep-tastic novel that had me on the edge of my seat.
One of the reasons I began reading young adult novels was because of my love of the dystopian genre. When I read the synopsis for the Darkest Minds I knew I had to read it. Bracken has written a clever tale intertwined with paranormal and science fiction elements. Creating a horrifying dystopian world where children are feared and most of America is brainwashed into believing the government is helping their children. This was a brilliant read with fleshed out characters that held me captive.
I love a good dystopian and when you mix in a little science fiction and paranormal woo-woo you have the ingredients for a spectacular new trilogy. Stitch delivered a fast paced, original tale with characters I immediately identified with. What started out as an intriguing ghost story quickly morphed into a gripping dystopian and I cannot wait for the next installment.
