I’ve got that Dystopian feeling… again!

If you enjoyed The Hunger Games then you’ve gotten a taste for dystopia–books about a society changed forever by something that happened in the past. If you’ve finished The Hunger Games and you are “hungry” (so sorry) for more books set in a dystopian future, then how about trying Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi. It’s a story about a young man called “Nailer” who makes a living tearing apart rusty, abandoned ships. It’s a tough and dangerous job made even more dangerous by the oil fumes, dirt, dust and the company Nailer keeps. Complicating his life is the fact that his father has crashed into the dark world of gangs and drugs. Nailer’s life is grim, but there are a few bright spots. His friend and boss, Pima represents a safe haven. Her family protects Nailer from his father. But no one can protect them from a “city killer” a typhon storm that sweeps through their coastal village. When a clipper ships also blows ashore, things get even more complicated when Pima and Nailer rescue a young heiress who’s running away from her father’s enemies. There is plenty of action, danger, and a bit of romance too; enough to satisfy all of you out there pining away after finishing The Hunger Games series.

NEWS FLASH!!!   There will be a movie based on this first book in the series expected to release April, 2013!

Laugh Out Loud!

In these two action packed adventure books, you will have the time of you life with the twins Coke and Pepsi (also called Pep) McDonald.  If you love crazy, funny, and dangerous books- here’s your ticket to heaven.  If you like codes or spy stuff you will also love this book.  These books got me hooked the second I started.    If you absolutely hate codes, ciphers, danger, crazy, or funny, these books are most definitely not for you.  I think you would be more comfortable with a dictionary if you don’t like even one of these things.
