Yeah, the 5th wave was awesome


message 6: by Ellie (new)

Ellie Ooch, I didn't like the Fifth Wave (I'm not a huge fan of dystopia), but I agree with The Naturals!


message 7: by Alexandra (new)

Alexandra (xandi) | 20 comments Oh my goodness, this is literally the first other person I've met who's read that. It's my favorite series. But I liked the 5th wave too. Isn't the 3rd book coming out soon?

The 5th was really good but the infinite sea wasn't as good I thought it would be.

I just checked and it comes out it November! It's great that you asked, I thought it was already out and had it marked as not-available (from the library).


Alexandra Beatriz (ummduhitsme) | 45 comments What's the story about?

basically the world has succumbed to alien invasion, but in waves. for example, one wave is a deadly plague, and another is aliens with human bodies and minds.
this book centres around Cassie, a 16 year old girl who has survived all of the waves that have come, but she can't trust any other human ( because of the previously mentioned aliens that take bodies) for all she knows, she is the last human alive... then she meets Evan Walker, but can he be trusted??

I loved the 5th Wave.


Just Another Bookish Blog (justanotherbookishblog) | 81 comments So many people mentioning 5th Wave!
I'd say Messenger, by Markus Zusak, Siberia by Ann Halam, Exodus by Julie Bretagna, and Graceling, by Kristin Cashore

:)

Did you read the rest of that series. I really enjoyed Fire and Bitterblue although Bitterblue (in my opinion) wasn't as good as the other two.

More people will read the Spook series now that the movie has come out.

Brandi Zavala (Brandizavala3) | 98 comments the acadmey series by c.l stone


message 33: by [deleted user] (new)

I'm reading graceling at the moment


Just Another Bookish Blog (justanotherbookishblog) | 81 comments yay you picked it up! :D


message 35: by Alexandra (new)

Alexandra (xandi) | 20 comments The Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi.


message 36: by Abi (new)

Abi (booksa144) I've read the first 5 or 6 books of the Ghost Bird series by C.L. Stone, and I don't know exactly what I think of them. They are realistic fiction, and feature family issues (LOTS of them). I kind of like the premise; (girl meets boys that help her) but I don't like the "9 guys can marry 1 girl" thing. I mean, yuck! Way to go too far with the boys like the same girl thing. It's not a love triangle, no it's a love nonagon! (I had to look the word for a 9-sided shape up, so sorry if it's not accurate). I stopped reading the books when I felt that they got too descriptive with certain things.


message 37: by Abi (new)

Abi (booksa144) Sorry about my rant. I know this is a "books that more people should read" discussion, so sorry.


message 38: by Rabecka (new)

Rabecka (mrtickles) The Shatter Me is so amazing it is one of my favorite series

Yes!! I love the relationship in it!


message 40: by Rabecka (new)

Rabecka (mrtickles) I know right!!! How it goes from hating to liking then tries to deny it then love!!!! Kenji is so amazing too


message 41: by Alexandra (new)

Alexandra (xandi) | 20 comments They're all amazing; Kenji and James and the twins. I wish we got to know the twins a bit better, but they were more 'outside' characters in the books. But that relationship. Ugh! I loved it. If anyone else is looking for a good read, Read It.


message 42: by Rabecka (new)

Rabecka (mrtickles) Yes I agree. READ THEM NOW!!!! Not to be pushy or anything.


message 43: by [deleted user] (new)

I've read the first of the Shatter Me's but haven't gotten around to the other ones yet.


message 44: by Rabecka (new)

Rabecka (mrtickles) The last two in my opinion are better than the first.


message 45: by Alexandra (new)

Alexandra (xandi) | 20 comments I would rank them in my opinion, the 3rd, 1st, then 2nd, from best to worse, but they were all great.


message 46: by Rabecka (new)

Rabecka (mrtickles) Yeah smart here

the movie is completely different i haven't seen it yet but i know from the adds it is incorrect and the book series is way better


message 48: by Rabecka (new)

Rabecka (mrtickles) I just watched and the only thing you sane is the names basically. It was a good movie though if you don't compare it to the book


message 49: by Jet13 (new)

Jet13 | 96 comments that is true but i'm comparing it to the book and it is pathetic
