Rose (seekeroftruth) | 2966 comments The Supernaturalist by Eoin Colfer This book is hilarious and complex! Great read!

Have you all read
Matched (Matched, #1) by Ally Condie and Crossed (Matched, #2) by Ally Condie ?

I really liked those, especially Matched. They aren't books that I would really go back to and re-read very often though, as they are kind of slow-moving, and it's not like you'll catch anything else that you might have missed the first time you read it. But they were good. I am looking forward to reading the next book,
Reached (Matched, #3) by Ally Condie .

My absolute FAVOURITE dystopias of this year (and ever) would have to be

Divergent (Divergent, #1) by Veronica Roth and Insurgent (Divergent, #2) by Veronica Roth

Even my brother enjoyed Divergent (hasn't read the 2nd yet) and right now is reading it for the third time. :}

Debra (lebarron1) | 7 comments I am reading a book by Catherine Mckenzie called Forgotten and it is a good book,i would recommend it to anyone too.


message 14: by Anika (new)

Anika I like Delirium and its second book Pandemonium. They are kinda like Matched, but more interesting. Also a newish book called Breathe was good.

I liked Delirium and Pandemonium, as well!

My fave YA books so far are Divergent and Insurgent!

Salyna | 73 comments Just read Matched (Matched, #1) by Ally Condie by Ally Condie. It was amazing!!!


message 23: by Allie (new)

Allie I love Delirium (Delirium, #1) by Lauren Oliver and Pandemonium (Delirium, #2) by Lauren Oliver (haven't read Requiem yet. It hasn't been published in Germany yet and I don't like switching language during a book series). Unwind (Unwind, #1) by Neal Shusterman and UnWholly (Unwind, #2) by Neal Shusterman are just awesome. And I also love Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro . At the moment I am reading Article 5 (Article 5, #1) by Kristen Simmons which is pretty good so far.
