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.

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

 

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken (released Dec. 18, 2012)

This book had me intriqued from the beginning. Ten year old Ruby has changed, and it caused her parents to call the police and send her to a goverment rehab “camp” (more like a concentration camp).  As it turns out something has happened to all the children in the world, but more have been affected in the US than other countries. If it doesn’t kill the child, they emerge with new mental abilities, some rather benign others frighteningly powerful. When they reach the camps they are sorted by abilities and Ruby quickly learns that not everything is as it seems. The guards are not afraid to use lethal force to keep the kids in check. The story moves along at a nice pace, and I found interesting that parents allowed their children to be removed with no further contact? It was understandable in the case of Ruby since they no longer remember her…..
