message 3: by ~Tina~ (new)

~Tina~ Have fun Arlene! Looking forward to your thoughts on this one!

message 4: by Arlene (new)

Arlene Thanks Tina. I finished it last night. Wrapping my thoughts together for my review. Actually, I'm quite sleep deprived. I've been staying up for over a week plowing through ARCs. I'm useless right now, so I might take a moment for my review seeing as I feel incoherent... can you tell? :P

message 5: by Kathryn (new)

Kathryn OMG I'm so excited about this book now ! your enthusiasm has won me over completely !!!

Alexa Awesome review, Arlene! I'm excited you loved it! :D I also haven't felt this excited about a dystopia series since finishing the HG series. Can't wait for more! :)

message 9: by Crystal (new)

Crystal Amazing review!! I agree this book is just beyond fantastic and yes the wait for the next one is going to be excruciating!

message 10: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Wow that review was awesome! I'm gonna have to check this book out now lol!

message 11: by Lucy (new)

Lucy Wow this sounds freaking amazing! Love that it's set in Los Angeles. And when you namecheck Divergent, Hunger Games & Blood Red Road I know I will love it.
Guess I should move this up the TBR stack, huh?
Your enthusiasm is infectious - awesome review!

JoJo - JJJ (Jo Anna) Janesko You certainly can not tell you were sleep deprived when you wrote this review. Phenomenal review Arlene you should write all of your reviews on little sleep :). I read I could see your excitement coming off the monitor and grabbing me saying "MUST READ". I have been on the fence about reading this book however I will certainly be adding it to my pile now.

message 13: by Arlene (new)

Arlene @ Sandy. Thank you! Yes, AMAZING is the right word. :)

@ Alexa. I know, right!!?? It was so exciting and I've missed that since finishing HG. I can't wait for the next book and the worst thing about that is there's no information to give me something to look forward to! No name, dates, nothing! I need some information on book 2! LOL

@ Crystal. Thankies!!! Painful wait!! I want it NOW!! :D

@ Amanda. Thanks so much! Yes, this book needs to be check out. Right away. XD Hope you enjoy!!

@ Lucy. ~giggles~ I was excited when I wrote this one. :P and a bit sleep deprived. I loved it to pieces!!! Yes, move it up your TBR!!! You need too! :D

@ JjJANNA.. I am so giddy from lack of sleep, but it was worth it!! LOLOL You have to read it. You really do!! If you like the HG you'll like this one. :D

message 14: by Ari (new)

Ari I can't believe that they are making plans about the movie and the book is not out yet.. it must be that good, and your review confirms it :)

message 15: by Arlene (new)

Arlene Ari, I am definitely going to see this if it goes to film. I wish there was some info on the other books!! LOL Thank you!

message 16: by Nic (new)

message 19: by Aleeeeeza (new)

Aleeeeeza OMG ARLENE THIS IS SO UNFAIR. you make the book sound absolutely frickin' AMAZING and it doesn't release until november! *pouts*

message 20: by Arlene (new)

Arlene @ Nomes. LOL you know how I get when a book rocks my socks. :D I hope you enjoy it too.

@ Aleeza. Sorry!! Yes you need to get your hands on this book as soon as you can. I joined a ton of give aways and I still needed to be hooked up by one of my Bookers. Hope you get to read it soon. :)

message 21: by Flannery (new)

Flannery Oh man, I had such a grin on while I read your review. I'm so happy you loved it! Day sounds like quite the bada$$, eh? I couldn't believe (view spoiler)

Talk about a cliffie, though! I can't wait to see what happens!

message 22: by Shalice (new)

Shalice How have you already read this book? It says its not out until Nov. 2011

message 23: by Arlene (new)

Arlene @ Flannery. Thank you! And thanks so much for lending me your ARC. This is one of the best I've read so far this year. (view spoiler) Yeah, after that cliffy, I can't wait for the next installment. There's no info on it though.

@ Shalice. I was able to read an Advanced Reader's Copy courtesy of one of my Bookers. :)

message 24: by Britany (new)

Britany OK I love that word..... unputdownable because I love books like that!!!! I love it when I'm thinking about a book throughout the day becasue I can't wait to get back to it!

message 25: by Jessica (new)

Jessica I truly enjoyed reading your review...cant wait to read the book!

message 26: by Arlene (new)

Arlene @ Britany. LOL! Thank you. I like making up words, but I beleive I saw that somewhere else. Yes, books that make me want to stay home and forget everything else are the best. I love finding those. :)

@ Jessica. Thanks so much! I hope you get to read it soon. :) I hear they are making a movie of this one. I'm looking forward to it. :)

message 27: by Iva (new)

Iva I'm totally stealing the word "UNPUTDOWNABLE" from you. You can't stop me :D

message 28: by Arlene (new)

Arlene LOL Iva! Go for it. :D I love that word. :)

message 29: by Caitlin (new)

Caitlin great review Arlene i was really pondering over wether or not i should read this book, but now i am becuase your review was just amazing.

message 30: by Arlene (new)

Arlene Thank you so much Caitlin! I hope you enjoy it. :)

message 31: by Caitlin (new)

Caitlin thanks:) do u have any other recomendations? for when i finish this book?

message 32: by Arlene (new)

Arlene If you're looking for Dystopic YA, I'd suggest The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Shatter Me. If you like SciFi YA, I really enjoyed I am Number Four. And lastly, for YA Fantasy some of my favorites areDaughter of Smoke and Bone, Finnikin of the Rock, and Angel Arias.

I hope that helps. I can't see your profile to gauge what you've enjoyed in the past, but hopefully you'll find something from the batch above that you might enjoy.

Happy reading Caitlin. :)

message 33: by Caitlin (new)

Caitlin thank you these really do help. i really enjoyed reading hunger games and shatter me which i just finished and i am hoping to find my next good book. thank you for your help

message 34: by Arlene (new)

Arlene You're welcome Caitlin. Hope you enjoy! :)

message 35: by Bea (new)

Bea Arlene, it help me to make the right decision of reading this book before choosing another one. I am lookingforward to finish it. Thanks, you gave a great review.

message 36: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Too funny Arlene, I stayed up late to finish this one too. And I have been known to take books with me on errands so I can read at red lights, check out lines, in drive-thru lines, etc, too! Heehee!

message 41: by Sarah (new)

Sarah I've been reading a bunch of reviews on legend after I finished it probably only like an hour ago. When I read your review I was just thinking "yes, yes, I totally agree," throughout it. Basically I found something that was like having my thoughts written down and read to me. This is just exactly my opinion on legend and I'm definitely looking forward to Prodigy, have you read it? If so what'd you think of the sequel?

message 42: by Danica (new)

Danica  St. Clair Cool review! It was like you put my feelings into words <3

message 43: by Edie (new)

Edie UNPUTDOWNABLE is is a good word for this book as well as the hunger games, divergent and others like them! I think this book is good and I will probably read the sequel but I probably will not re-read it. I just finished it this morning and I started reading yesterday at this time so it is a pretty quick read but I didn't really put it down except to sleep. I'm writing on a tablet that I am not used to so ignore typos if there are any

message 44: by Arlene (new)

Arlene @ Sarah. Thank you for the kind reaction to my review. :) I read the entire series and LOVED it!! I hope you enjoy it as well.

@ Danica. Thank you so much! Glad you enjoyed the book as well. XD

@ Edith. So glad you enjoyed this book. Hope you get to finish the series. It's totally worth it.
