One – Read It and Rate It

The One Selection series #3 by Kiera Cass Adventure Dystopian Romance Review #1 * * * * * Stars (Amazing!) The Selection series is a book series that perfectly blends The Hunger Games with The Bachelor. It’s a romance cake with an icing of adventure and sprinkles of dystopia. One might say that the book would’ve been a hodge podge that wouldn’t blend together nicely, but I definitely recommend this book to any other teen … Read more

Hungry – book review

Hungry by H. A. Swain Dystopian Science Fiction * * * * Stars (Great!) Thalia’s mother helped create the innovative nutritional substitute and drugs that feed everyone and suppress their appetites and other urges (Synthamil).  No one really eats or cooks anymore and there isn’t any food (there may not be any plants or animals either, as previous generations poisoned the Earth).  Now her parents work for the company that distributes Synthamil – One World … Read more

Thunderhead

Thunderhead Arc of a Scythe #2 by Neal Shusterman Dystopian Science Fiction * * * * * Stars (Amazing!) The Scythedom is split into factions – those who respect the old ways and take their responsibilities seriously, and those who embrace killing for its own pleasure and who would like to repeal their self-imposed restrictions.  The Mid-American High Blade’s position is left vacant when Xenocrates accepts a new title – Grandslayer.  Whomever is chosen by … Read more

Fahrenheit 451 – Read It and Rate It

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury Classics Dystopian Science Fiction Review #1 * * * Stars (Pretty good) It’s about a future American society where books are illegal. If you have one it is required you get rid of it or you will be prosecuted. I liked it, but at the same time didn’t like it because it’s interesting why they didn’t want to learn anything new, they thought they knew everything they needed to. Didn’t … Read more
