#ReadAroundtheWorld #USA

Dinner was gnocchi with rocket salad, blue cheese and garlic butter sauce 😋

Can‘t believe I hadn‘t read this classic dystopian tale before. I loved the brief insights we get into the world of the book burning firemen. I loved the justifications for this behaviour. I liked the open ended way the story ends. I found it scary how plausible the world was.

RachelO Yum! I read this just a couple of years back and thought it was fantastic- but yes, scary how familiar some things felt. 4h

I loved this world and following the journey of Kira the orphan girl as she discovers her special talents - if anything I was sad when it ended because I wanted more details. It was very enjoyable but there were hints of a cruel and dark element to the community which wasn‘t fully exposed. Perhaps in the next book? The audio book was so well read - it was a pleasure to listen to!

“That‘s the problem with letting the light in-after it‘s been taken away from you, it feels even darker than it was before.”
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this read. It had a Hunger Games feel to it, but with more depth and complex plotlines. It definitely had a young adult vibe to it, so I‘m surprised it hasn‘t been marketed as such. But it is much more violent and graphic than the Hunger Games...

My biggest accomplishment of last night and today was finishing this book. Also protecting my sushi from the cat. I thought the book had a good theme but I was very disappointed with the ending, I think this is because it is a debut novel. While this book and theme was compared to Margaret Atwood, there is no way she would have ended a book like this. All in all, well this will never be my favorite book, I would read another by this author

Oops forgot to post my #BooksandDinner picture last night! Upright Women Wanted is actually my next book up but I've misplaced the jacket to my current hardcover read so it doesn't look very pretty. I am very excited about my first Sarah Gailey book! Queer librarians in the future?? #QueerBooks

Road tripping to Ohio to see some friends and meet their baby today! Matty is excited for a future friend. 😍 I‘m enjoying a little Hunger Games on the way.

ljuliel Welcome to the Buckeye State. 1d
eanderson @Reviewsbylola will do! 🤗 @ljuliel thank you! I‘m from Northern Indiana so it‘s cool to find out there are Littens close. I don‘t know if there are many Hoosiers here on Litsy. 1d
ljuliel I‘m not sure either. I think there are a handful from Ohio, but I don‘t know about your state. 1d
robinb Safe travels and happy trails! 🙂 24h
