Jenny, Karen and I are starting a buddy read of Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi on Friday, March 15th if anyone wants to join us! It's the sequel to Under the Never Sky :)


Teri That was a great book - liked it better than Under the Never Sky.

Aww yay! Hopefully you like it enough to read the sequel :) Although I've heard the second book is much better than the first, which was just OK for me.

So far I find it very confusing. xD And it doesn't hold my attention very well.

I actually need to thumb back through the first book for a quick refresher before starting on Friday. :) I read the last one in April 2012. Yikes.

Lol then you might be skipping the sequel! It's definitely not for everyone and like I said, I liked the plot and the world created, but not the characters so much :) I'm hoping I'll like the sequel much more as I've heard good things :)

It's just that I expect some background information when I read a dystopian book. How the world became that way, a more detailed description of the world,... Now I feel like they've thrown me into the story head first. xD

I like the info, but I prefer it later on in the story. If you get a whole bunch of background right in the beginning, it starts to feel like the author is talking to you, and not the characters. I really like living in the characters heads when I start a book. I know it will start to make sense if I keep reading. Hopefully!

I read it on January 1st of this year! It was a great way to start the year for me! Did you guys read the short story, Roar and Liv? It talks about how Liv was sent away before the events in Under the Never Sky. I really liked getting to know Roar better, as its mostly from his POV

I'll start writing at 8ish tomorrow so I can get in my 3k words before Adele's birthday lunch! Then the afternoon will be all about her, so no reading, none at all *stuffs Kindle into back pocket* absolutely no sneaking any reading :)

OK I started! I'm 14% in (through Chapter 5 I think). Wow, I'd really forgotten how unique this world is, I really, really love it! You've got the virtual reality realms away from the real world, the outsiders, much more real and in touch with nature, and then the dark and unforgiving aether storms that don't discriminate against anyone (everyone feels their wrath). Although nothing much has really happened, I'm totally in the world. Minor thoughts (view spoiler)


Karen’s Library | 11320 comments Mod

Ok, I'm caught up to you at least. I, too, had forgotten how interesting this world was. This was one of the first YA dystopian books I read after hunger games, and since then I feel like I've grown so much in recognizing interesting concepts and worlds! Really enjoying all the different senses!

I agree, David about Aria. I remember not really liking her that much in the first book. Now that she's not a Mole anymore she's much more likeable.

Really enjoying this so far!
