MY RATING⇢ 4 STARS | GRADE B+The writing in this story really worked its way into my bones, but in a sad, depressing way, so much so, that I found myself not wanting to listen to it. This coupled with my issues with the narration had me not enjoying this story as much as I could have. But...I stuck with it, and I am so glad I did because this story does have something worthwhile to impart. Plus, the ending is amazing!

I started the year not being able to put this book down. Highly recommend this post apocalyptic tale featuring great characters and lovable dogs. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

tealwish @JoScho No, there are two dogs and neither of them die. I was worried though! 4w

Well done dystopian fiction that isn‘t hung up on that fact that it‘s dystopian.
Starts off at 3 stars, dips to 2, then climbs to 4 stars, ending with “shut up don‘t talk to me I have to read this more than breathe right now” 5 stars.
Author warns at the beginning to avoid spoilers in reviews, so I‘ll shut up now! Just go read it!

I brought two books with me on our jaunt to the desert, but I'm being tempted by the books in our rental. Not Infinite Jest, though.

vivastory The Lost City of Z & Last Policeman are both solid reads 3mo
Addison_Reads I second The Lost City of Z. I recently read it and really enjoyed it. 3mo
ImperfectCJ @Addison_Reads @vivastory The Last Policeman is on my TBR, but I'd never heard of The Lost City of Z, so I appreciate the rec! Between epic hikes and my family's insistence on interrupting me every 2-3 minutes when I sit down to read, I think I'll have to pick these up when we get home. *sigh* 3mo

🌟🌟🌟🌟
What I Loved: Etta‘s struggle with who she really is.
How I Felt: This book wasn‘t as gritty and great as the first, but it is still a great read.
Read or Not Read: Book 2 in a series, so go to Book 1 first!
Small tribes of people survive after an epidemic. Birth rates are poor. Men outnumber women. Etta is a scavenger and encounters The Lion, stealing women and makes a choice to stop the Lion at all costs.

Nute Welcome to Litsy! It‘s a warm and friendly community. I know that you will enjoy yourself here. I‘m looking forward to getting to know you!🙂 1mo

The book life as we knew it was an amazing science fiction thriller. This is a book about a 16 year old girl, Miranda who's life takes a turn when an asteroid hits the moon knocking it out of its orbit. This causes hurricanes, tsunamis, floods and volcanic eruptions. After living like this for several months, Miranda and her family start to wonder what will happen next and if they will survive.

C. A. Fletcher‘s debut novel is an engrossing SF post-apocalyptic story that‘s low on complicated plot and which telegraphs its twists and punches with some heavy-handed foreshadowing but is rich in atmosphere - specifically Fletcher‘s vision of a decaying Britain returning to nature - and I liked Griz with his curiosity, determination and love of his dog and cared about what happens to him.
