Gather the Daughters | Jennie Melamed

Yay! Look at this awesome book mail — thanks to @booksugar and @littlebrown ! #GathertheDaughters, #Less, #Calypso, #GiveMeYourHand, and #WhatWeWerePromised. Have you read any of these?

Blurb about GATHER THE DAUGHTERS: “...NEVER LET ME GO meets THE GIVER in this haunting debut about a cult on an isolated island, where nothing is as it seems...This is a haunting work in the spirit of #TheHandmaidsTale but Melamed more than holds her own...” #TBR

Daisy feels I should include a specific warning on this book. If starting #NightsMaster, after recently reading #GatherTheDaughters, prepare for your experience to be a bit...skewed. I think that's the least spoilery way to put it. I tried to explain to her that we readers can handle it, but she sees us humans as a weak lot. Rude. Also, typical cat thinking.

I love this novel! If I didn't have to take it back to the library soon, then I would read it again. It's so haunting yet also beautiful! I created my own hype for the book, and I am very fortunate it exceeded my expectations! If Jennie Melamed decides to write another book, I will definitely run to my bookstore to grab a copy. #GatherTheDaughters is a new favorite!

This was sometimes hard to read, not because it was poorly written, but because the subject matter was hard to handle at times. Once you pieced together what was going on, you really wanted to take all the women away from the men. A good read if you enjoy dystopian novels or enjoyed 'The Handmaids Tale'. #justfinished #librarybook #gatherthedaughters

Only 30 pages in and I already want to scream. Is this a cult? It totally sounds like a cult, but I can't stop reading. #gatherthedaughters #currentlyreading

valeriegeary I'm on page 127. It just keeps getting creepier! 🙈 2y
Ka.reads @valeriegeary I just finished it. Oh man. It ends in a sad but glad way. Sad because of what happens 10 pages before the ending. Glad because, well, you'll see. Keep reading!!! 2y
