A Worthy Sequel of Gone.
Hunger (The Gone Series) - Michael Grant

What began in GoneHunger gets right down to business on tackling the realism of one situation - food. As read previously (finally following up the series after more than a year) in Gone, the kids in Perdido Beach are now facing a major problem - food. Starvation is reaching in all corners of the FAYZ and with trouble brewing on all sides of it, Sam Temple and his crew are going to tackle adult problems they never faced before... and a looming darkness in the mineshaft, ever ready to come out of whatever intentions this darkness calls 'gaiaphage' wants. With CaineDrakeDiana and a few others raiding the power plant for control, another problem arises - what divides those with powers and those without. As problems escalates, Sam is left with a few decisions he has to make that wills sacrifice the life of his friends.

 

Reading Gone had me at the first page of curiosity and excitement that I long for for a long time. Its a good first book to read that lasted so much impression on me. Hungeron the other hand is a sequel that is worthy of the first book. Michael Grant had really outdone himself with laying out the plot lines of realism and even further more, issues of adults upon teenagers. Yes, there are parts of this book can be squeamish, not easy to read but important part of and there are some really intense moments that really builds up so fast, it doesn't waste any time on any thing else. Clues are given more as to know who 'gaiaphage' is and how its link to Little Pete. More characters are introduced and even though, its still not much a development in character, the entire book itself is like watching a good Season 2 television series of your favorite TV show.

 

Hunger is a sequel worth picking up. It begins with a want and ends with a fulfillment of hope. I am looking forward to the end book and hopefully, it doesn't fall out a little as to how the book turns out to be for Lies. I do recommend this series to anyone who wants some thing fast and an exciting read.

The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games is a spectacular novel by Suzanne Collins. The novel is a dystopian YA novel, which is one of my favorite genres, aside from fantasy. Recent fantasy titles i have read include Eragon by Christopher Paolini, and Nimona by Noelle Stevenson. 

    The Hunger Games is about Katniss Everdeen,, who lives in District 12. The nation of Panem holds a yearly event called the Hunger Games, in which 24 children who's age range from 12 to 18 are thrown into an arena to fight to the death. Katniss's little sister, Prim, gets chosen for the games, and Katniss volunteers in her place. Several connections i have made is that Panem is North America after a war. District 12 is in present day Pennsylvania, which i have inferred from all the coal mining. The Capitol is in present day Colorado. Right now, in the book, Katniss just ended the opening ceremony. Her and her fellow District 12 tribute, Peeta, wore these outfits that had fake fire on the. These outfits were made by Cinna, one of Katniss's helpers in the Capitol, and one of the few that seems normal. Many other Capitol people, like Effie Trinket, are very gaudy and over the top.

Interview & Review – Hunger Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff @AlexSokoloff
Hunger Moon - Alexandra Sokoloff
 

 

Alexandra Sokoloff is in a class of her own. Her MOON series reads as if it is taken from the pages of reality and leaves me so fired up I have to remind myself it is a novel. She is on my MUST READ list and if you love nitty gritty suspense thrillers you will want her on your list too.

 

Alexandra includes, in the back of the book, why she included the political issues in her novel. She also shares that the series has been bought for TV. MAN ON MAN, where do I sign up? Criminal Minds, I would like you to meet Cara Lindstrom and Special Agent Matthew Roarke along with his elite team of investigators.

 

GREAT NEWS!  THE BOOKS ARE CURRENTLY ON SALE FOR THE FABULOUS PRICE OF $2.00 EACH OR YOU CAN GRAB THE 5 BOOK SERIES FOR AN AMAZING $9.00.

 

I also have a fabulous interview to share. Be sure and scroll through the post so you don’t miss anything!

 

Cover:  Ray Lundgren

 

Hunger Moon (The Huntress/FBI Thrillers, #5)

Amazon  /  Audible  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Hunger Moon is raw, powerful, blood pumping, and in your face.

 

I will start this review for Hunger Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff by saying that I took way to many notes and would spoil the book if I shared them all. I loved it so much, and I got so carried away because my emotions were running riot, that I feel like ranting and railing.

 

I love that we have action from the opening pages and I would recommend passing by the girl with the dark hair and backpack, if your intentions are evil.

 

Cara Lindstrom is the only survivor of her family’s brutal massacre. That is when she met IT, EVIL. Her stints in foster homes and group homes, brought her to where she is today, a vigilante serial killer, defender of women and children unable to defend themselves.

 

She is a force to be reckoned with. She is deadly. But right now, she is quiet, listening, waiting to be told what to do next. She will need to lay low, but where. Her face is everywhere and it is not just the law that is after her. Every pervert within internet range will have heard of the reward by now. Indian reservations have been a haven to her before and a belief there is more out there than meets the eye is a big part in her life.

 

It is February, the month of the Hunger Moon, and Special Agent Matthew Roarke is still haunted by Cara. They have a special connection, and whether he admits it or not, he is in love with this vigilante serial killer. Since the Bitter Moon, he has found his mission, combating the sexual abuse and trafficking of women and children. One of Roarke’s agents, Epps is black, so he can relate when it comes to being a target of hatred. Another agent, Singh, handles their internet searches and she will find a target on her back too. She is a citizen of the US, but will that make a difference now that she has been brought to IT’s attention?

 

Alexandra Sokoloff’s MOON series is not for the faint of heart. I love vigilantes and serial killers, especially female ones, with a righteous cause. She makes me eat up the pages, hoping that Cara doesn’t get caught or hurt, but I am afraid of what the future holds in store for her. How can there be a happy ending?

 

All over the country, universities are being targeted for Title IX violations. The people are fed up with the lily white one percenters protecting their own and covering up the brutal gang rapes of innocent young women. Who will stand up and speak for those who can’t?

 

Alexandra Sokoloff has incorporated today’s political climate of hate. In Hunger Moon, she shows how easily it is for those protecting their own to proclaim protesters as domestic terrorists. The book is so frightening, because I, too, feel a change in the United States that I never thought would happen. How can we possibly ignore it, even in a novel?

 

I rarely talk politics and I know most authors avoid it, but Alexandra Sokoloff makes her books so real because she does not avoid the ugliness and I revel in it. I love when my blood boils and I want to punch someone. So much of her writing strikes home for me and I feel the characters anger, frustration, fear and terror, making it impossible for them to move on. Damaged…oh yeah! I rage for revenge for them and we all know what happens when people are backed into a corner with nothing left to lose.

 

Alexandra brings the internet and Dark net up front and center. I don’t think there is one of us out there who hasn’t heard how dangerous it can be in the cyber world and care must be taken.

 

As everything comes together for the finale, the forces of good and evil and those walk the line, I feel like puking at the depravity of these ?men? and how far they will go for their own pleasure.

 

I was shocked that I was able to pick up Hunger Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff as an Amazon freebie. I never would have thought that was possible because her books are off the charts. Five stars is not nearly enough, but that’s all I have! And the TV series, I am on pins and needles just thinking about it. Criminal Minds you will have some competition. She is currently working on Book 6, which she has planned to be the end of the series, but with the TV show in the works, I am hoping we have more.

 

I MUST HAVE MORE…AND SOON.

 

I recommend beginning at the start of the series with Huntress Moon.

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos  5+++++ Stars

Hunger -- honesty on a platter
Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body - Roxane Gay

This is embarrassing. I started reading this and immediately knew the first story, which is a good clue I've read it before. I continued knowing the stories all the way through. In fact I'm pretty sure this book is where I first learned of Blue Apron(tm). I don't keep a good list usually (though I'm trying to remedy that) and apparently I'd not marked it as read. Every time my Kindle updates, it marks ALL of my books as "New" so I have no idea.

 

Nonetheless, this book was worth a second read. I have a feeling I may have blocked some of this one out because it's so truthful and honest, and I wasn't in a place - even just a couple of years ago - to be quite so honest with myself. Something has changed since then, and I truly appreciated her sharp honesty on this read. I found many things I could relate to: most of all the desire to disappear after trauma, and to disappear by gaining enough weight that society ignores me. This book alone could give me grist for the therapy mill for a while (honestly, these topics have been grist for the therapy mill for a while already, but I'm a pro at avoidance.)

 

It's funny. I work in this arena. I know all of these things. I can therapize others with the best of them, but it's so tough to be this kind of honest with myself or the few people I trust most. I certainly couldn't write a book about my personal shame. I so appreciate, respect and owe massive gratitude to Roxane Gay and others who write this kind of truth.
