Inhuman

Inhuman is a YA futuristic sci-fi dystopian novel by Kat Falls, and the first in the Fetch series.

After a biological disaster has left all of the United States east of the Mississippi River blocked off by a huge, sprawling wall life is completely different.

Time has passed and Lane McEvoy does not know anything different. But there is that stomach churning fear and curiosity over what lies on the other side of the wall. A place now called the Feral Zone, where the millions of people infected with a virus have been mutated into bloodthirsty savages.

Curiosity can truly kill you though – punishment for violating the border is execution.

But when Lane is faced with the knowledge that someone she loves has passed the wall – and she’s tasked with bringing them back she sees just how unprepared she is to travel through the Feral Zone.

Will her humanity prove to be her strength… or her downfall?

My synopsis may not do the plot of Inhuman justice, but I definitely didn’t want to give too much away.

Inhuman is an action-packed, fascinating adventure story about Lane, whom I liked very much. She’s smart and compassionate.

This is a new sort of post-apocalyptic story. I appreciated that everyone isn’t crazy, which to me is more realistic. There’s a level of civilization amidst the disaster, but also those moments of horror and fear.

As a journey across an unknown land it’s incredibly suspenseful and interesting.

The secondary characters, also romantic interests, were well written. One of them, Rafe, was a bit course and at times truly unlikable. Yet he did grow on me. Another was Everson who I liked from the start and enjoyed in scenes very much.

Regarding the more romantic elements of Inhuman, the least mature moments of the book were when, through Lane’s first person narration, we learn of the boys’ “washboard abs”. Usually it’s done with a tad of humor, thank goodness, but still one of my least liked parts of the writing. However, for my part, Kat Falls did manage to provide two male romantic interests that I had a hard time choosing between!

I truly enjoyed the slow, nerve-wracking introduction into the Feral Zone and the United States made wild. It became surprisingly romantic, increasingly creative, and later on horrifyingly sad. In other words, very affective. Oh, golly.

I definitely want more. There’s so much I’m not telling you – you need to read it ASAP!!!

Real Live Boyfriends

Real Live Boyfriends is a YA contemporary novel by E. Lockhart, and the fourth novel in the Ruby Oliver quartet.

Here we are on the last day of “Ruby Oliver Week” and if you aren’t already reading these books – well, why not?

But I’m more than sure most of you are – and hopefully you’re all caught up, and therefore not at risk of being spoiled by my review of Real Live Boyfriends. You’ve been warned!

Ruby Oliver is beginning her senior year of high school with a real live boyfriend: Noel.

At least she thought she was.

After having spent the rest of junior year and the beginning of summer being fully in love (okay, they never actually said the word, but the vibes were strongly in that direction), Ruby is now confused.

Again.

When Noel went to visit his brother in New York for a while, almost every day they talked on the phone and exchanged funny emails. She never once felt insecure.

Until all of a sudden – communication stopped. Ruby would call and he wouldn’t answer. She’d leave a voice mai…

Interview with Joanna Philbin!

Today we have an extra special guest! Joanna Philbin, author of The Daughters series, is here to tell us about the fourth and (*sniff*) final book in the series - The Daughters Join the Party - as well as answer some other questions!

Welcome to the Bibliophile Support Group, Joanna! We're happy to have you!

So, for anybody who hasn't read the first three books in The Daughters series (read my reviews here: The Daughters, The Daughters Break the Rules, The Daughters Take the Stage) can you give everybody a general idea of what they're about?

Lizzie, Carina, and Hudson are best friends who are normal fourteen year-old girls in almost every way. Except for one: each girl has a parent who is incredibly famous. And her parent’s fame complicates her life in a big way. Lizzie’s mom is a supermodel, but Lizzie isn’t what most people would call “beautiful” – in fact, she’s what most people might call “unusual-looking.” How do you deal with having a supermodel mother when you don’t …

#YAStandsFor Daily Social Challenge... Day 5!

In my final day of participating in the I Read YA Week celebration (you can keep partying, it goes on through Monday!), I found myself presented with a new challenge of: Create a graphic showcasing an inspirational YA quote.

I'm not super tech savvy and I've never created a graphic before. But with just a little Google searching and a download of an app, I was able to create this:
