BOOK OF THE MONTH! – January 30, 2016

Hello and welcome to a Saturday post! So, I’ve decided to start this ‘series’ where every month, i give my top three favorite books i read! And I’m going to rate them 1/10 for overall and 1/10, 1 being realistic and 10 being a VERY dystopian universe. NO SPOILERS! Here we go,

3 – Black Ice – by: Becca Fitzpatrick – What can i say? This book is so great, i read it on a nine hour plane flight, in between movies and food, and it really helped pass the time. It’s about a girl and her friend who decide to go on a trip to the friends cabin. When they are driving, they get stuck in a snow storm and decide to walk and try to find shelter. Then they stumble across a cabin with a bad past, but friendly inhabitants. Read to see what happens next!

RATING? 7/10, some of the book is waiting for the action to happen, and i get too impatient waiting for the good stuff!

REALISTIC OR DYSTOPIAN? 4/10, this book is more on the realistic side, but still probably wouldn’t happen to any person on any given day.

2 – Stronger Than You Know – by: Jolene Perry – I CANNOT SAY ANYTHING BAD ABOUT THIS BOOK! It is about a teenage girl with a horrible past who moves in with her aunt and uncle. She struggles with panic attacks, the med’s she’s on, and being around new people.This book is a really great story of survival in the worst of situations. Would not recommend this to anyone who the plot could be a touchy subject to. Enjoy!

RATING? 8/10, such an amazing book! I only mark down two points for the lack of emotions in the secondary characters.

REALISTIC OR DYSTOPIAN? 1/10, This is books is so realistic because a lot of people suffer from anxiety, take medicine, and don’t like being around new people! The main character has an awful past, but pushes past it to live in the present.

1 – The Darkest Minds – by: Alexandra Bracken – OH MY GOD. I LOVE THIS FREAKIN BOOK. This is the best book that i’ve read in a long time, better than my past favorite Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant. I cannot say anything bad about this book. I actually can’t find anything wrong with it. This book leaves you with a tingly sensation of love, hate, anger, sadness, and overall, joy! Bracken has a way of pulling your heart strings in the perfect way to make you want to feel the emotions in the book and feel how the characters feel. I would also recommend the other books in the trilogy ‘Never fade’ and “In the Afterlight’, as well as the novella ‘Through the Dark’. But, the first book is the fastest pace book with the most action, which is why it’s my favorite.

So, this book starts out with Ruby in a rehabilitation program called Thurmond to try and rehabilitate kids who fell sick with IAAN and are left with PSI abilities. The color coding system is (least powerful to most): Green (intellectual), Blue (telekinesis), Yellow (electrokinesis), Orange (telepathic), and Red (pyrokinetic or fire). Ruby is wrongly classified as Green and makes a friend names Sam who learn to lean on each other in rough times. But, when Ruby escapes and runs from everyone she knows, she finds new friends and a love interest, Liam. They are on the run and danger lurks around every corner. Read to find out more! READ IT!

RATING? 9.9/10, The only reason it is not a 10/10 is because some of the plot doesn’t piece together perfectly, but it comes together at the end.

REALISTIC OR DYSTOPIAN? 9/10, again, the only reason this isn’t a 10/10 is because before all the crazy dystopian stuff happens, its supposedly normal america.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and please like, comment any suggestions, feedback, or questions, and follow for weekly posts! Until next time,
