The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau

I keep thinking I’ll get tired of all the post-apocalyptic stories, but they keep sucking me in! Many years of world wars have laid waste to most of earth, and what remains is uninhabitable. To choose it’s futures’ leaders , the best and the brightest are chosen to go through The Testing. I saw many similarities to The Hunger Games but still found myself drawn into the story and its characters. The author does an excellent job of giving you just enough information to make you question without it being predictable. Interesting that I just read a book on wild edible plants, and that plays an important part in a number of the levels of The Testing. I liked the ending because it wasn’t what I was expecting, but so many things are not resolved, that it left me anxiously awaiting book 2.

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

I am  anxiously awaiting the new book in the Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater, The Dream Thieves, coming out in September!! I loved Raven Boys so much!  From the very beginning I was intrigued by the story and the characters, and felt like I wanted to  re-read it immediately (which is something I rarely do)! Check out the great fan-made tribute for the Raven Boys below and then check out a copy to read.
