Summer read 📚
So far it‘s keeping me enough intrigued ..
I should have known how this was going to be from the cover. Million dollar? Million books? Million what exactly? While the idea was interesting, the writing fell flat. She could use a better editor. For a book with the word gender in the title I was also expecting more gendered characters, not stereotypes. There were a few interesting twists. I didn't completely hate it but I will not be continuing with the series.
My sister-in-law recommended this book to me. While the concept of this book seemed interesting (two nations divided by gender), I never felt like the world was real. I think the books I‘ve read in the dystopian genre that are most successful are because there are enough differences that you know you‘re not in today‘s world, but enough similarities that you can identify with it. I didn‘t expect the ending, but not enough to read the next book.

I really enjoyed this story and found myself incredibly intrigued with the characters! I thought the story idea was rather unique as well. I am anxious to read the next book in the series!
Didn‘t like this at first — the MC is obnoxious and she keeps making the same mistakes over and over, which makes for very frustrating reading, as she is also the narrator. However I like how the world building takes shape around the events the MC is involved in, and I liked how much the action speeds up in the last 1/3 of the book. The romantic lead was too obvious, but the gradually increasing tension was well executed. Just made it over so-so.
I was sceptical about this. First it's the name and then the comparison to The Hunger Games, which seems to be the case with every YA fiction released these days, but I was plesantly surprised. Only 28% in, so ample opportunity to change my mind. That said I would recommend bases on what I've read so far. My only wish is that the author picked a better name, maybe I'm wrong, it did catch my eye after all. #thegendergame #ya #bellaforest
An interesting twist on post-apocalyptic America. I liked the true feminist perspective as well as the story told with two societies that have no gender equality. The writing seemed fairly simple and although telling a unique tale and creating empathy and love for one character in particular, I didn't feel as connected to this community or plot.
I'm looking for some sanity! I read the first two books of Gender Game series, they were just awful. Bad writing, bad characters ruined what could have been a good story. All I keep hearing and seeing everywhere is how good they are and they are the next big series.
Is there anyone out there who agrees with me?
I got this book through #kindleunlimited - once I started to read it (when I know I shouldn't start another book while I'm in the middle of my book club book😒) I didn't want to stop. I loved the main character, Violet, and was rooting for her from the get-go! There were some sketchy parts that didn't exactly make logical sense, but all in all its a great read.
Would recommend to anyone who enjoys a little crazy #YAdystopian excitement!
Dear Litsy, I'm not ignoring you. Well maybe I am a little. I'm on a push to finish 10 more books before the end of the year. If I manage that I'll have completed 200 books, which is a record I think. Gotta go!
Anyone read this book? I stumbled across it whilst completely ignoring my resolution of not adding anymore books to my TBR pile 🤓
If you like the Hunger Games and Divergent then this is a good read alike. What happens if the world is divided into two factions? Matrus, where women rule and men are subservient, and Patrus, where men rule and women are subservient, are at odds with each other. Violet makes a deal to save herself from execution in Matrus by going undercover in Patrus and discovers more danger than she even thought she would face. #netgalleyreads
