The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes

World: Panem

Author: Suzanne Collins

Prequel to The Hunger Games

For the book review of The Hunger Games, check out that link you just passed, back, there you go, that one. 🙂

Now, let’s get this party started, beginning as usual (almost usual) with my thoughts as I read the book. It was not easy to stop and jot down some thoughts while reading this one, especially because it was my first time reading on my phone, on Amazon Kindle, but I made it work, and the note thing on Kindle made it much easier. Though I was saving up ‘quotes’ too, so bear with me.

The Maze Runner

Author: James Dashner

Genres: Dystopian, Post-apocalyptic, Science-Fiction

I read The Maze Runner a long time ago, so my memories might be a little too old. I read this one before the movie came out, just to make sure I had all the facts and that in it (the movie) everything was in order. It was accurate enough but many details were missing.

The Maze Runner book though, I remember I read like thirty percent of it and then stopped even though it is a dystopian book I did not feel like carrying on, but then picked it up after reading other books and saying: I have to finish it, I already started. And by the end of it, James convinced me.

The Hunger Games Trilogy – Review

Author: Suzanne Collins

Well it took me about 5 to 6 years to read them but here I am, and I am done with all of them, I think I broke my own personal record with this one, I read all three books in two weeks give or take. Maybe you are saying that is not fast but between work and life, it is fast.

I really did not have any intention of reading them anytime soon but for some reason, re-watching The Hunger Games movies made me want to read, I picked them up and started with the first line that I already knew, and then got past it, the weird first-person narrative. And then I couldn’t stop, I knew the whole story but it was an easy read, and it was good to read something as if for the second time; since I really like the movies I didn’t know how I would feel with the books.

I cannot really say which I like best, so I will leave it at: they are both good.

Take Me Tomorrow

Author: Shannon Thompson

​“Tomorrow can take me.”​ Truest words spoken and we knew it was going to be good.

Take Me Tomorrow a truly different twist in the dystopian genre.

Let it be known, I am not encouraging drug use because we all know that’s bad for your health, but wouldn’t we want to take a pill that would show you the future? Or at the very least, a glimpse of it?

Divergent

Divergent Trilogy

Yay!

Author: Veronica Roth.

One of the Best Dystopian I know. So far, it has been one of the best in every genre I have read since I started reading many moons ago with the Harry Potter Series (which you’ll notice how much I love in weeks to come). Back to Divergent, of course I will not make any spoiler, I loathe spoilers so I won’t have that and if I do, I will tell you before you read a review; now the love I have for Four is weird, he is not The Character for me but he is amazing and in my mind’s eye quite gorgeous and hot, if I wore in a new place he would definitely be the guy I would go to for a tour LOL. Here’s a quick overview of the books.
