Reading is my ESCAPE from Reality! rated it 3 years ago
Lynn was nine the first time she killed to protect the pond, the sweet smell of water luring the man to be picked off like the barn swallows that dared to swoop in for a drink. - first sentence I couldn't wait to see how this one would end. It is the story of a young girl raised in the wilderness...

I had such a great time reading this book. I’m a sucker for post-apocalyptical novels and even more when it is realistic and it involves bad-ass female characters. Lynn lives with her mother in a world where water has become rare and expensive, they have a pond and will do everything to protect is a...

This is it. Best book of 2016 so far, and it's going to be hard to beat. It's been a long time since I've struggled to hold back tears (and I did because I knew if I started bawling I wouldn't stop). This book... This book has broken me. Read it in a few hours, but I know this hangover will last a c...

Not a bad book. It did take me a while to get into the flow of the writing style, I don't know if the author was trying to make a strange accent for the characters (redneck?) or she just has an unusual style, but once i finally got the hang of it I started enjoying Not A Drop To Drink a lot more.Als...

First, I need to point out the cover of this book. I think it’s stunning. It definitely got my attention right away. Whoever designed it deserves a serious pay raise. I’ve lost count of how many young adult dystopias I’ve read over the past few years. They’ve all started to blur together in my mind,...

(4.5)Content warnings:rape (implied)So there's this big city called Entargo. Water is so scarce now that population schedules have been created: only one child per couple. Couples who have more are kicked out of the city and are left to survive on their own on the outside, where people will kill for...

This is a hard one to review. I'm not sure what I think... I bought this at a reduced price for 99 cents at the beginning of September because I'd read a few articles about how great it was. I started it almost immediately and couldn't get past the first sentence for about two weeks. Then I return...

This book was not perfect, but it was pretty great. I've heard mostly negative to mixed reviews, and so I was a little nervous to read it. But the premise seemed interesting to me. This is a post-apocalyptic story about a future USA where water has become a very scarce resource. Meaning if you are...

Lynn, the main character is flawed without being stupid or a martyr, strong without being unbelievable, and naive without being a total bonehead. In other words, she seems like a believable 16 year old raised with only her mom (and occasionally a neighbor) for company in a world where drinkable wate...

It's a harsh tale about surviving during a water shortage, and the lengths people will go to in order to guard what they've got. The narrative is told through the experiences of Lynn, who was born after the water crisis began and was raised alone by her mother on a small farm overlooking a pond. The...
