3.5 / 5I really enjoyed Legend, but it's not my favorite YA dystopian. For one thing, the love story is ridiculous. Instalove all over the damn place, stretching my incredulity even further with the fact that the female MC is grieving a family member who died less than a month ago. Not really a sexy...

I'd heard good things about this book and decided it was about time to read it. Plus I wanted a break from some of the more slog-fest Fantasy I tend to read. I did enjoy this book but I've struggled in rating this one (once again, I wish we could do half stars on here!), so my official rating would ...

Legend is the story of two characters living in the Republic (what was once the western US) whom both come from very different backgrounds. June is the Republic's prodigy looking forward to her military career and the only person to ever have scored full marks in the Trails. Day from the slums and i...

(See the full review on my blog)The story was told in alternating chapters in the view of Day and June respectively and this made the book very balanced. June was of a more privileged background to Day, and seeing the story from two different perspectives made it quite an unbiassed read as you weren...

Predictable, but likable! Nothing makes me happier than a smart, tough heroine. 4.5 stars.

This book was ok, your typical dystopia YA novel where two teens have lost basically ever one they care about are thrown together. One rich and one poor, but they some how still have a connection. All in all it was entertaining while it did make you think too much. The sequel comes later this mon...

Legendary, Legend is not.Cue indifference:This review will be pretty un-legendary, too. Because flu.Judging by reviews, a lot of people seemed to have been blown away by Legend. Personally, I found it to be quite forgettable. It wasn’t horrible, so it was easy enough to pick up, but it was also just...

Holy crapsicles Batman!I went into this book torn. I had read that it was written in first person present *Shudder* and it hopped between the heads of the two main characters *cringe*. And because of that I put off reading this dystopian yarn for the longest time. And honestly, that was my mistake. ...

Meh. Maybe I've just read too many YA dystopian novels this last year or more, but most of them are failing to really enthuse me these days. Legend is one of those - not bad or anything, just, well, not really outstanding either. A pretty standard dystopian, military tyranny, bad government versus g...
