๏ ๏ ๏ My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏

 

Most of the reviews say this is just like Hotel California...the song...so I read the lyrics...and...yeah, I totally see that. It's almost as if the Author just made up a story, albeit a YA one, to go along with those lyrics. I think if you go into this knowing it's more or less a story to go with that song...you might not be so disappointed. Whether or not that was the Author's intention is unknown to me or irrelevant at any least.

 

For the most part, it reads like a super quick little tale of a haunted hotel with grief-stricken teens and a few splashes of overly dramatic romance, and for me, it fell somewhere in the middle of terrific and terrible.

The Recovery by Suzanne Young
The Recovery - Suzanne Young

This was a great little story about Michael Realm and his mission to make things better. He did a lot in his time as a handler in The Program. His conscience has seemed to kick in and now he wants to right his wrongs. Noble enough and from the heart, that is why it's good.
If you are a fan of the series and read the books, read this one.

Girls With Sharp Sticks
Girls With Sharp Sticks - Suzanne Young

I Picked Up This Book Because: I fell for the hype. I regret it.

The Characters:

Philomena Rhodes:
Sydney:
Several other girls in the “school”

The Story:

This was a no from me. I never find these kinds of oppressive dystopian type storys something I enjoy. I really should have read the synopsis more clearly. Basically I cringed the entire time. I did read the last chapter just to see if it got better and even that was loopy.

I’m sure plenty of people enjoyed this book but I was not one of them.

The Random Thoughts:

*DNF so no rating.

The Epidemic by Suzanne Young
The Epidemic - Suzanne Young The Epidemic - Suzanne Young

Looking forward to reading The Adjustment now.
This is a series that I doubt I will tire of. Quinn and Deacon have me swept into this dramatic society, and their love story. I feel like I just can't stop until I know that they are safe and get away from The Program. You might not have a clue what I'm talking about, and that is okay, but you can easily catch on by reading the series.
This book was exciting for me. Maybe more so than some of the others in the series. It was the great chase that had me intrigued. Sure, there is usually a lot of chasing going on, but this had some sleuthing too. I guess that combo made it better.
It really is a good series. Some solid storytelling and not what you would normally read I bet.

Feral Youth
Feral Youth - Shaun David Hutchinson,Suzanne Young,Marieke Nijkamp,Robin Talley,Stephanie Kuehn,E. C. Myers,Tim Floreen,Alaya Dawn Johnson,Justina Ireland,Brandy Colbert
This wasn’t exactly the novel I was hoping it would be. The side stories by the different authors were nothing to scream about, I didn’t think, but the main story about the ten delinquents left out in the woods for three days was what, had my attention. I wanted more of this story, I wanted to know what became of them, I just wished the book contained more of their journey.
 
They had spent three weeks preparing for their three-day stint in the woods. The ten teenagers each have their own reasons for being a part of this outreach program, some more severe than others. Blindfolded on their drive in, the teens are dropped off in the woods and are given three days to reach their destination. In a perfect world, the teens would have used teamwork, cooperation, and survival skills to make it to the end but this is not a perfect world and we see that, the minute the van drives away. They were teens, they had egos and some immediately formed groups. Some just wanted to make it to the pick-up point and some just didn’t care. They had three days, just three days but to them, it was a lifetime.
 
Gio, the individual telling the story brought up the idea of the teens telling original stories after the teens started to argue about water. Yeah, some thought the idea was stupid until Gio offered up a hundred dollars for the story that he thought was the best. That shut them up and soon the stories began. Each of the stories were different, there was no central theme running throughout them. There was a bit of truth in a few of the stories, it just depended upon the individual who was speaking. Gio was right, it did keep them busy, their minds were occupied and they couldn’t wait to hear what someone else had to say.
 
I liked reading about the teens adventure. I found it interesting as a group how they tried to tackle this assignment. There was an injury along the way and seeing how the characters handled that situation said a lot for that character. People talk the talk but until you walk the walk, you never really know. They were all individual others thought (and a few of these teens thought) were delinquents, but were they really? I didn’t care for the stories that the teens told as they walked. I thought they were simple and juvenile. I kept hoping as I read that that next one would be better so I could pick the winner.
