A Weird Finish
Sever - Lauren DeStefano

One of those instances where I'm actually put off by a happy ending. (I know, I have no soul.)

Kicking off my 2014 sequels challenge with Fever
Fever - Lauren DeStefano

Very unexpected, but I can't help but wonder: Why is it that there is always a good excuse for characters not to get it on in these YA dystopias? Not just in this particular instance, but every single time?

Today, I am grateful for the female characters in "Wither"
Wither - Lauren DeStefano

Boy, is that a book that has people divided. 

 

And I can see why.

Review: Wither by Lauren DeStefano
Wither (Chemical Garden) - Lauren DeStefano

If you've read this post, you know that I've recently realized I am not the biggest dystopian fan (read it to find out why). That being said, I've got to admit I've been greatly and pleasantly surprised by Wither; it was an engrossing, interesting read bound to enthrall many readers out there.

The story is set in a world where there are two kinds of people: Old Generation, and New Generations. The first is genetically perfect, and live long, full lives. The second, the Old Generation's children, suffer from a disease that kills all females at 20, and all males at 25.As such, to keep humanity alive, girls have to get pregnant at a very young age. There are no rulesforcing them into it or anything, but there is a group who kidnaps suitable girls... and sells them to become 'Brides' to the rich and famous. Those Brides are not allowed to say no (unless they want to meet an early end in an already short life), and they are expected to carry on their husband's line.

Here come Rhine... (press title for the full review)
