About a month ago I finished The Chemical Garden series by Lauren DeStefano, and I am now depressed. Am I the only one out there who doesn't know what to do with herself when she finishes a series Yes? No?
Well that's how I felt about this series! It's based in the near future where America has become a wasteland after scientists tried to make humans perfect and failed. Now men only live to be 25 and women to be 20 because of a deadly virus. The story follows a 16 year old girl named Rhine who is orphaned along with her twin brother. Something goes terribly wrong and Rhine is separated from her brother and thrown into this cruel world where girls are kidnapped and forced to live with men in polygamous marriages.
I won't give anymore away, but this book is damn good!
In other book news, the trailer for Catching Fire has been released and I am so excited!! It doesn't give too much away for those who haven't read the books, and it has just the right amount of doom and gloom for those who have. I think I might read the book again just to brush myself up on the details before the movie is released. Look out for it in November!
