I’m back! I did a post this morning for Top Ten Tuesday with my all-time favorite books, but now I’m back to post my day two for the 30 day book challenge.
Day 02: A book or series you wish more people were reading and talking about.
Razorland trilogy. I read these books back in 2012-2013 and I personally didn’t see much talk about them then or now. Enclave, Outpost, and Horde are the main three books in the series; Endurance was a side book in the series about what happened with other characters after Enclave.
I personally loved this series so much and it’s one of my top favorite series. I was randomly looking for books to read on Kindle and I came across Enclave because it happened to be free at the time, so of course I read it. It sounded interesting enough and it was free, so why not. I wasn’t expecting too much because I figured if it was free, was it really going to be THAT good? I really liked it and it only got better.
I loved the whole concept of the story and I loved the characters in the book. I loved that Ann Aguirre explained things so well that it was easy to visualize things and there were times that I got kind of grossed out (because of the monsters aka “Freaks”), because they were explained so well. It’s hard to talk about it without giving a lot away in case anyone wants to read, but it was interesting throughout all the books how the Freaks changed and developed.
I wish that more people were reading and talking about it because it really is a great series, especially if you like dystopia. Of course that’s my own personal opinion, though.
Goodreads for Enclave: “New York City has been decimated by war and plague, and most of civilization has migrated to underground enclaves, where life expectancy is no more than the early 20’s. When Deuce turns 15, she takes on her role as a Huntress, and is paired with Fade, a teenage Hunter who lived Topside as a young boy. When she and Fade discover that the neighboring enclave has been decimated by the tunnel monsters–or Freaks–who seem to be growing more organized, the elders refuse to listen to warnings. And when Deuce and Fade are exiled from the enclave, the girl born in darkness must survive in daylight–guided by Fade’s long-ago memories–in the ruins of a city whose population has dwindled to a few dangerous gangs.”
Have you read the Razorland Trilogy? If so, what did you think about it? Is there any books that you wish more people were reading?
Unrelated: I mentioned in my post from earlier that today was my birthday. Well, my boyfriend bought me the cork board and whiteboard I wanted and I am pretty excited about it. My older sister got me a shirt that has Karl Pilkington (from An Idiot Abroad) on it and I am in love with it. I also got some really cute balloons from my younger sister. I went to Target after work and bought two books that I’ve been wanting to read and one I’ve had on my TBR list since 2013 and I bought some cute pens and more cute paper clips and thumbtacks, lol. I am pretty much a geek and get excited about weird stuff.
I’ve had Cinder on my TBR list since 2013 and I’ve been really wanting to read Red Queen. 🙂 Not entirely sure when I will get around to them, but hopefully if not this month then for sure April. Anyway, this is long enough and I am starving. The boyfriend made homemade pizza rolls for dinner, YUM! BYE! ❤
