Audiobook pick:
This book had some serious potential but I felt the world-building lacked something. Despite that, the concept was truly unique. What happens in the aftermath of a dystopian regime that is toppled?

I liked Violet but at some point she started to act quite reckless. Villain character was interesting!

I really loved how dark and disgusting the world was - and at the same time you could nothing else than keep reading to find out even more disturbing things.

This was really fast pacing. Instalove was the thing I really hated and I just couldn't feel it. There were really intriguing world, plotting happening and some twists to keep me reading.

TheSpineView It helps so much if the character is interesting. Well done! 2d

It was a re-read for me.

Read this third book to finish the set but wasn‘t really wowed by any of them. These were a recommendation for me and I can see why they would be popular (particularly if you grew up reading Shannon Hale‘s Princess Academy, you will love this!) but they are just so full of cliches. Just enough freshness to keep me reading and some twists. But, let‘s just say if you‘re an eye-roller, save yourself the headache you will get from reading this one 😂

I loved getting a look into all these perspectives! Any chance to jump into this world is the best; I missed these characters so much! The audiobook narrators were a little weird at times, but getting to hear from my babies was worth it. I need 12,000 more books on Maxon & America

Ta-dah! 🎉🎉🎉 My book haul from yesterday! I was really only looking to get the Mantel novel, but of course ended up leaving with two more! 😂 I wasn't planning on getting the tagged book, but after reading the blurb and remembering how much I loved his previous book, Ohio, I caved and got it! 💕📚💕 #bookhaul

This madly ambitious, sprawling, epic work of near future climate fiction packs a serious punch. Yes, it is 900+ pages, and yes it is a little demanding. The emotional depth of the multiple character storylines provides balance for the heavy political themes in a way that really pays off. If you enjoyed The Overstory by Richard Powers, The Ministry For The Future by Kim Stanley Robinson, or Stephen King‘s The Stand then this will knock you out!

Reggie Ughhhh it wasn‘t at my bookstore today!!! 3w

I enjoyed the first three quarters of this book so much. i liked being able to see Snows mindset and how that developed his character in the hunger games trilogy. the ending however i was not a fan of i think that it was too many unanswered questions.
