#MurderTrending | Gretchen McNeil
WELCOME TO THE NEAR FUTURE, where good and honest citizens can enjoy watching the executions of society's most infamous convicted felons, streaming live on The Postman app from the suburbanized prison island Alcatraz 2.0. When seventeen-year-old Dee Guerrera wakes up in a haze, lying on the ground of a dimly lit warehouse, she realizes she's about to be the next victim of the app. Knowing hardened criminals are getting a taste of their own medicine in this place is one thing, but Dee refuses to roll over and die for a heinous crime she didn't commit. Can Dee and her newly formed posse, the Death Row Breakfast Club, prove she's innocent before she ends up wrongfully murdered for the world to see? Or will The Postman's cast of executioners kill them off one by one?

#BookReport Finished 3 of 7!
Lamb is a new friend's favorite, so read it on her recommendation: good and clever in bits, but pretty racist and sexist in others.
Chronicles of Avonlea: comforting; just as I remember it.
#murdertrending: a little over the edge in violence for me, but a quick read that I couldn't put down.
The Anthropocene Reviewed, Ace of Spades and Other Words for Home all remain in progress.
Didn't get to start Grown.

One of the reviewers said it‘s like ‘Hunger Games meets The Purge‘. It starts with a teen who was coerced into pleading guilty for something she didn‘t do. Now she is trapped on an island hoping to survive long enough for them to find the real killer. In the meantime she needs to outsmart notorious assassins & has many home viewers. Can she turn the tables?

I‘ve been in a #readingslump and this #thriller was a #bookrec for the #reluctantreader

January Wrap-up 📚

What a coincidence the first 3 books I read this year would all be centered on the topic of murder cases and the death penalty. Two were actual accounts, while the third was a fictional imagining, but I enjoyed each of them for different reasons.

This was a pretty good start, given the few time constraints I had this month, and I can‘t wait to get started on this next group of reads!

This YA book includes gory deaths and a high body count. I loved it. I finished the last 2/3 in one go. Convicted felons are sent to Alcatraz 2.0 where everyone can watch them on The Postman app. Sanctioned killers are sent to the island to hunt them down and the world is alerted to watch the executions live on the app. Dee is innocent, but will she be able to survive Alcatraz 2.0 and prove her innocence. #Booked2019 #socialmediafocus

So much fun! Even if you don't like YA books, if you're looking for a good #Spooktober read, this could be it!

This book was really entertaining and had a really cool concept. Slight jabs at our political climate and a unique plot made this book different and hard to put down. I thought the twists were really good and I enjoyed the ending. The story is based around a penal code that isolated criminals to an island where they are murdered by serial killers and it is broadcasted on a live stream. Hard to put down and very entertaining!

This is a hella unique read in the YA field. Someone in this book refers to the cast as Death Row Breakfast Club which is so freaking accurate! The idea of being stuck in this setting having to booby trap your home knowing you have pretty high odds of being kidnapped and murdered every night...the biggest of hell nos. I can feel my anxiety spiking. Great cast, tons of mystery and twists. Dark as hell. So here for the companion.

2/5
Not for me. The story was fast-paced, which I enjoyed, and the premise is interesting. However, the positives pretty much end there. I couldn‘t relate to the MC because she just didn‘t seem like a real person. None of the characters do. It all seemed so unrealistic and forced. Writing is choppy and jarring. It just didn‘t do it for me.

I enjoyed this quite a bit, sort of modern version of The Running Man but with teenagers. Alcatraz Island has been remodeled into a new fangled prison colony where the country has made celebrities of a group of killers that have unique methods of dispensing Justice. There is a conspiracy and there is bloodshed, but pretty tame as this book is YA.

My dec stats seem low but that‘s because I delved into chapter books and left the picture books at work.

I completed my GR challenge. Part of that was to read this 580 book list of picture books. I only got about 150 of those read because of a project at work that had all these amazing classics coming in. So I set this years GR goal the same as last year. Maybe this year I will get those read.

4.5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This bloody fun read is like someone took The Running Man, added social media, and threw in Alcatraz.

Overall, this book just works. Yes it would be considered horror, and there will probably be someone yelling “trigger warning”, but to me it was just fun. I don‘t see it as strait horror, but horror comedy that gets more insane and creative as you turn the pages.

For more info check out the full review on GR and LT.

Don't tresspass these pages unless you're looking for a darkly humorous, fast-paced read about teens cussing their way through an island full of contracted killers. Filled with decapitations, exploding body parts and other grusome ways to go, this is perfect for the spooky season ahead. A sequel is slated for summer 2019 release.

When she wakes up in the dilapidated warehouse, she knows she's about to be the next victim of the app. The problem is, Dee is being framed for a crime she did not commit, and she refuses to die for it.
