I have been blogging a little less lately because I have been reading a lot more! Sooo I thought I would talk about the books I’ve been devouring and who/what inspired me to read them.
For the past two years I have been REALLY into Young Adult Dystopian novels. A dystopia is an imagined place or state in which everything is unpleasant or bad, typically a totalitarian or environmentally degraded one (opposite of Utopia)…sounds awful huh? Somehow it’s not. My interest in these types of books started with The Hunger Games which after I saw the preview of the movie I ran out and read immediately! Then from there Goodreads was a HUGE help in finding similar books and also booktubers (YouTube book reviewers). I love this genre in comparison to others because it’s the most exciting and also because most of the worlds created in these stories are very realistic and believable. It’s like what you are reading about in these books could actually happen. My favorite book from this genre that I have read so far is The Host by Stephanie Meyer (review to come) Veronica Roth’s “Divergent” (my review) and Lauren Oliver‘s “Delirium” (review to come). I highly recommend you head to your nearest Barnes & Noble…like NOW…go straight to the Teen Fantasy & Adventure section and read your heart out!
Here are some books that I recently read that I thought were worth sharing =)!
