The Remedy: A Book Review

The Remedy: A Book Review

The Remedy is a prequel to The Program duology, set in the same world but with different characters. I read the duology just last month and instantly fell in love with the way Suzanne Young tells stories. She has a way of just bringing you in, in, in, and then twisting everything around that you thought you knew. And this prequel does the exact same thing. Although I for sure had some hesitations on this one. But let’s talk about it. [Disclaimer: I’m not trying to but there may be some accidental spoilers to the original duology. So if you haven’t read those, here […]

The 5th Wave: A Book Review

THIS BOOK. This book was awesome. It’s interesting because like two weeks before I read it, I had one close friend tell me how much she loves it and another text me and tell me she didn’t really like it. So I went in not knowing how I would feel about it. But by the end I was feeling good. So here we go.

The Treatment: A Book Review

The Treatment: A Book Review

This book. Ahh. I just read the first one a couple of weeks ago and I was immediately sucked into the story. A dystopian story…that seems plausible. Unlike a lot of the dystopian stories…which I love, don’t get me wrong. But this one is about suicide becoming an epidemic. In a world where suicide rates are increasing, this story isn’t so farfetched. Overall, this book is a great sequel to The Program and it wraps everything up nicely…at the end. But I’ll get back to that. Also from this point on, I’m probably going to be revealing some spoilers from the first book…so, Step One: […]

The Program: A Book Review

The Program: A Book Review

I put off reading this book for a while because this genre has almost become cliché. A dystopian story with romance and blah blah blah, been there, done that. You know. But alas, I saw it at the library week and I grabbed it on impulse. And I am so glad I did because I loved this book. It was fast-paced, original, and unpredictable.  Basically, it’s the complete opposite of Delirium by Lauren Oliver. In that book, the government declared love an epidemic and started it from society. Here, suicide has become the epidemic especially in teenagers. To fix this, they […]

Delirium: A Book Review

Delirium: A Book Review

Yes, it’s true. It’s real and it’s true. I’m finally doing a book review like I promised. I’m no longer in school and I’m not working right now either so I have time to write one. The book that’s been on my nightstand for the past couple days is Delirium by Lauren Oliver. I give it 4 stars. You are a doctor. Someone comes to you with these symptoms…What do you diagnose them with?: Difficulty focusing Dry mouth Persiration, sweaty palms dizziness and disorientation Impaired reasoning skills Periods of euphoria and heightened energy Periods of despair and lethargy Changes in appetites Disruption of […]
