This Cruel Design | Emily Suvada
post image
Pickpick

Emily Suvada is the real deal. This second book in the Mortal Coil series is superb, continuing to nuance the relationships between characters and add layers of plot without bogging down the story. If you like dystopian fiction, I highly recommend this. If you shy away from YA, do NOT shy away from this book! It is so well done (but start with book one). I cannot wait for the next book!

I have read and loved the original Giver. I have not read the other three. I recently got this good looking copy of all four.

Cinfhen That is a good looking book. I haven‘t read The Giver but I remember my kids were assigned that book in middle school. 1h

This book basically picks up years after the conclusion of The Forest of Hands and Teeth. It follows Gabry and a few others as they try to survive after a Breaker attack. Along the way, Gabry begins to discover that her entire life is basically a lie.

I‘m conflicted about this book. I like the world and enjoyed the plot twists/suspense, but the love triangle was really annoying. It was hard to look past to really enjoy the story.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

My first Erdrich and certainly not my last. The beginning took a bit to get into, but the plot moves faster in Part II. Some strong similarities to THE HANDMAIDS TALE, but it stands strong on its own and I might like it better. 😬 A haunting tale about women‘s bodies and the power given to and taken from them. An important reminder today. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #booked2019 #indigenousauthor

I read the book last year and found it okay, but I started the show and I‘m absolutely hooked !! 😱

Is anyone else watching this? What‘s your thoughts? #BookToScreen #Binge #WeekendPlans

Lovesbooks87 Love this show. Scares the crap out of me most of the time but I can't get enough of it! 4h
Curiouser_and_curiouser The book gave lots of ideas but left lots open to imagination. This series has brought all that to life and more. I'm loving it too, I've almost completed the first season. I watched the first 7 eps in one evening! I'm also reading Brave New World again, as I am on this genre's trail atm. Good luck!! 4h

I love this idea of this book, but ugh, no quotation marks. Not sure if I‘ll make it through.

Bklover I hate when authors do that! There‘s a sort of arrogance to it, as if their words are so important that the rules don‘t apply to them. I beg to differ. 53m

Beautiful day to start this one. So far on p36 and I‘m hoping it takes off soon, bc It‘s a bit of a slug right now🤞🏽
