ever since i fell in love with The Road last year i've been getting my post-apocalyptic narrative fix in any way i can.
these are the YA books i've read as of late that are actually worth mentioning. (adult books scare me.)
Genesis by bernard beckett: it's a tad sci-fi, so if you're into that...which i kinda am.
The Hunger Games by suzanne collins: so good. i read this back in november and immediately made a mental countdown chain until the release of book 2 this fall. pre-order off amazon: check.
now that my classes are finally nearing an end for the semester, i've dusted off my library card and put in my max of 5 holds at the front desk. next on my YA future fix: The Forest of Hands and Teeth by carrie ryan. i've read mixed reviews on it, but the nasty 1 star rating, of a very obviously disappointed adolescent, referring to the book as "...a subtle mix of the movie the village and 28 days later" is really what sealed the deal for me. a safe wall guarding all of the inhabitants inside from a mass plague of flesh eating zombies? yes, please.
happy summer reading.
