Last Week’s Reading Adventures
Young Adult Literature:
Watching Divergent last week in the theater inspired me to read some titles from my massive to read list.
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer – Book 2 of the Lunar Chronicles – The dystopian take on fairy tales continues. In addition to Cinder’s ongoing saga, this book follows Scarlet as she tries to locate and rescue her grandmother, a pilot with ties to Cinder’s past. This book has loose elements from Little Red Riding Hood.
Cress by Marissa Meyer – Book 3 of the Lunar Chronicles – Cress, the Lunar Queen’s imprisoned programmer, is the featured heroine of this book. Loved the ending two chapters of this book and am now impatiently awaiting Winter (Feb 2015). This book has loose elements from Rapunzel.
Maze Runner by James Dashner – An unsolvable maze. Boys with tattered memories of their past. Monstrous creatures. A society with strict routines thrown to the wind with the arrival of Thomas and then Teresa to the Glade.
Max for President by Jarrett J. Krosoczka – The class election is coming up. Who will win?
Annie Was Warned by Jarrett J. Krosoczka – A fun twist on a Halloween story.
