Ooh.. Good choices. They all look good. Maybe we can have a month where we read like twenty books? And we can all discuss them? Okay that would be too much work.. Never mind.

Amy (aimzees02) | 83 comments I'm willing to quit my full time job for it ;) HAHAHHAHA!!!

Choices:
Divergent (Divergent, #1) by Veronica Roth
Gone (Gone, #1) by Michael Grant
Legend (Legend, #1) by Marie Lu
Leviathan (Leviathan, #1) by Scott Westerfeld (with this one, it's placed in world war I but it has a steam-punk/futuristic vibe to it)

You can still suggest one more book, Jazzy.

I know... But I ran out of books that I REALLY REALLY wanted to read/REALLY REALLY LOVE that know one knows about... Well there are probably more, but my brain is being lazy...

Hey, I practically get paid to go on Goodreads. And on occasion, I count money! What better way to get paid?

I love counting money... It makes me feel special...

Becca (beccatheawesomeone) | 365 comments Mod
Yes. It used to make me feel sick from all the contagions and stuff. But I am used to it.

I like counting it especially when it's mine...

Becca (beccatheawesomeone) | 365 comments Mod
That is the best kind to count. And then you multiplythat amount by ten, and brag that you have that much money to your mom, who tells you to go back home because you are a grown woman and don't need to spend time at her hoise twenty four seven

Jonathan Terrington (thewritestuff) Genesis
Uglies
Fever Crumb is the prequel to Mortal Engines but both are dystopian in nature. I think Mortal Engines is the better book since Fever Crumb was written afterwards.

They're about all I can think of that haven't been nominated already. Ah well it's somewhat futuristic dystopian so The Knife of Never Letting Go rounds off my list.
