.27 is a number Ruby hates.It's a number that marks the percentage of the population that has survived. It's a number that means she's one of the "lucky" few still standing. And it's a number that says her father is probably dead. Against all odds, Ruby has survived the catastrophic onset of the killer rain. Two weeks after the radio started broadcasting the warning, "It's in the rain. It's fatal and there's no cure," the drinkable water is running out. Ruby's left with two options: persevere on her own, or embark on a treacherous journey across the country to find her father-if he's even still alive.

Poisonous rain in this one.
I love this song ❤️

squirrelbrain I knew this one would be right up your street Trish! 😁😘 5mo
Cinfhen Honestly, the lyrics that @EadieB posted, sounded terrible but maybe I need to listen to the song. And the book sounds good ( although YA) but those darn Litsy ratings 😬 5mo
TrishB @squirrelbrain @Cinfhen one of my fav ‘goth period‘ songs. This book definitely too YA for you Cindy. It‘s written by the friend of one of my best friends, so it‘s funny that‘s there‘s a big dedication to her in the back 😁 5mo
eraderneely Is the Danish Netflix show based on this? Because the show is quite good; not overly sentimental and YA-y. 5mo
TrishB @eraderneely I‘m not sure - not aware of the series (I‘m not very up on Netflix stuff) 5mo

I picked this one up on a recommendation, but to be honest YA is not my preferred genre. That being said, this book wasn‘t awful, it held my interest, and I really did end up wanting to find out how the story ended. It got in my head a little, considering we were iced in all weekend after about 2 inches of freezing sleet came through. I thought twice about getting a drink of water!!

🔸Bohemian Rhapsody-Queen. And now that I‘ve thought of it , here it is again! 🎵🎶🎵🎶🎵🎶
🔸I‘m ready to bail. Don‘t think it‘s my thing.
🔸Either The Count of Monte Cristo or Atlas Shrugged. AS felt longer. I didn‘t think it was ever. Going. To. End.

LauraBeth @Bklover I dated an artist in my 20s and I spent SO many months reading Atlas Shrugged that now there are a gazillion paintings and sketches that he did of me while I was reading that. Also - you can see me reading that book in nearly every picture I‘m in from that time period. The end result was that I hated AS and sorry I spent so much of my time reading it! 😂 SO.MUCH.TIME. (edited) 2y
Bklover @LauraBeth I feel your pain. I had a cousin that I greatly admired (hero worship) and she looooved it and I was determined to be just like her. But dear lord what a slog. And yes I hate it too. 😂 2y
GarthRanzz Atlas Shrugged is one I‘ve never been brace enough to try. Don‘t think I ever will be. Thanks for participating! 2y

Loved this book so much that I read it in a day. Loved the concept, though was not entirely sold on the main character. Have read that the sequel has more mature character development so I look forward to that.

The Rain - I heard about originally through @TrishB and, I have to admit, I'd forgotten all about! It's set in Totnes, a town my family lived in for years, so super-happy to get a copy of this one (and I fully expect friends/relations to nick it as soon as I finish it! ) #summersantagoespostal #summersolsticebookexchange

TrishB I would love to live in Totnes 💜 a gorgeous little town! 3y

It took me a week to finish this book which is a pretty long time for me. I liked the book and I plan on reading the next one but it didn't have any pivotal points that forced me to keep going. I just put it down and came back over and over again. I did like it tho. :)

These are the first 8 books I found that I've read where the titles are all somewhat #weather related.

Very good book, hard to put down. Ruby tells her story about loosing her family to of all things acid rain that has swept the world leaving only .27% surviving.

Yeah... I got a ton of Kindle ebooks (and other ebooks) cuz I went crazy on Book Bub last summer...
...And I have literally a whole bookshelf of tangible, unread books in my room (it's worse in the house I grew up in)
...And I'm reading 3 books simultaneously for my history class...
The struggle is real 😖

#setinabelovedlocation. This is actually set in a fictional place - but based on Totnes in South Devon, where I actually brought this copy. Totnes is the scene of many family holidays for me. As a adult going back - the high street has an independent bookshop, wine shop and cheese shop. What more do you need 😀
Author is friend of a friend! It's good Y.A!

RachelO 💗 I used to work at tourist info in Totnes. How have I not heard of this? 3y
TrishB @RachelO fab job, lovely place 💟 you have to read now as you will recognise all the places! The book launch was done in the bookshop there. 3y

Went to book con and this was the giveaway. It is an apocalyptic coming of age. Ruby is left standing after rain begins to kill her friends during a party. It is worth the read.

Ruby, a teenager, is quite teenagery, as she deals with the widespread catastrophe of killer rain. A good read if you like young adult end-of-world doom and gloom.

This is the kind of book you'll want to read on a bright sunny day. "A" for concept (all water suddenly becomes deadly), just not sure it was the book for me, what with all the animal death and a teen heroine with ABSOLUTELY ZERO survival skills.

Such a great book. Truly chilling. Why? Because it's believable. This kind of situation? It could happen. Let's keep our water clean and safe to be around folks.

H2O combines a chillingly plausible scenario with a regular teen girl challenged with the task of surviving the seemingly inescapable killer rain. While Ruby starts out a little bratty at first, the weight of the situation quickly whips her into shape. She has become one of my favorite heroines!!!

The first few chapters of the book were intense a kept me on the edge of my seat, but the farther I got into the book the more I felt like it was being dragged on. I thought towards the middle there was to much detail and found myself sleeping through some parts. Over all it had an intriguing start

Onceuponatime I'm about 1/3 of the way in and it's losing momentum for me! 😕 4y

I wish it was more backstory. I want to know more about the rain where came from. I also feel parts of the book I slept through like there wasn't enough for me. So to be fair, something did keep me reading I couldn't put down the book had to know what happen next so that counts for something.
