My reaction to reading the summary of this book My reaction to finishing this novel.First and foremost, Alenna needs to set her priorities straight One moment, she s saying that she won t fall in love with hot boy Liam and focus on surviving, then the next moment, she s drooling over him, and his muscles No, just no And another thing that further fueled the fuel with this book was the instant love I swear on the third meeting between these boring characters they both fall in love.The heck I was [...]

Well, what can I say about The Forsaken Very little that I haven t already said about almost every other dystopian book I ve read in the last couple of years I ll say yet again what I nearly always say when reviewing dystopian or urban fantasy novels if you deliberately come back time after time because you like having of the same, then you may find this easier to love If you re sick of a few unexplained mentions of the word control and sparse world building, this isn t going to be a new favour [...]

The Forsaken is a book that I was really looking forward to, as it had a gorgeous cover and an equally intriguing premise With the dystopian genre as the new la mode, it s difficult to find a series that can truly set itself apart from the rest The bar has been set pretty high, and it s not easy to come up with something that is truly gripping The only series that I ve really enjoyed following The Hunger Games have been Divergent and Lunar Chronicles, and even those are lacking in some of the as [...]

I don t often read Dystopocalyptic novels willingly but when Lisa approached me for a review and I read the synopsis, I found myself intrigued I am glad I took a chance because as it turns out, The Forsaken is one of the best Dystopians I have read ever.What makes The Forsaken so interesting and riveting to me are various things which I am going to discuss in the next few paragraphs A thesis statement of sorts HahSuperficially, The Forsaken does not differ in any major way from the rather formul [...]

The Forsaken has a great dystopian idea, a prison island where those who fail a behavior test are sent That has some of the essential ingredients for a great dystopian 1 Controlling government 2 Disenfrantized citizenship 3 Lack of control over own life And the book starts strongly, with the main character going through the test then waking up dazed and confused in the middle of the jungle.Sound greats right Unfortunately from there the book just goes wrong Quickly Alenna, moves into a village w [...]

This book had so much lost potential that it s almost sad The plot promises to be the next Lord of the Flies, it promises hints of The Hunger Games and The Giver Sadly, it does not live up to huge expectations It doesn t even begin to touch any of my smaller ones such as a passable plot, good world building, and likable characters.The Forsaken is an odd sort of read It s a exciting boring novel which doesn t make any sense I m sure but once read, what I mean is quite clear The Forsaken is a fast [...]

This is one of those books that I ve had for a while but wasn t excited about, so I put off reading it But, wow It was weirdly good That s right, weirdly good is a thing.First, it has the whole Lost feeling to it with these kids on the island and you are never quite sure what is really going on There s weird crap happening all around them, and some crazy cult tribe trying to kill them, on top of things plucking them from the sky It s a little much Oh Crap This isn t looking too good The second t [...]

Eh Good writer, who wrote the wrong book It s a mashup of Hunger Games, Uglies, and basically every other dystopia I can t think of offhand I won t summarize the plot, the official summary is a perfect description.If Stasse ever writes anything else I d love to read it She s got talent, definitely Great, fast paced fighting and lots of plot twistswhich are alas totally predictable to anyone who s ever heard of the term Big Brother Also people constantly die except the ones that it would be incon [...]

I was drawn to this book because of the cover It s understated yet almost off putting, and traditionally sci fi than other YA of the same genre For that reason, I was expecting so much of this book Unfortunately, the cover might as well have been a girl wearing a pretty dress.The idea was interesting, of course Naturally there are Lord of the Flies comparisons, but this book struck me as a combination of LOST and The Host towards the end , oddly enough However, the world didn t have anywhere n [...]

This book ranks high on the young adult dystopians The book is non stop action and surprising I expected none of what transpired It is also surprisingly violent, although not detailed What I liked 1 The story first and foremost It is something interesting and compelled me forward.2 The friendship between the girls As the story develops, the complicated relationship of girls plays out as there is a common hottie boy.3 The uncomplicated romance Yes, there is a triangle and it causes some problems, [...]

AUGUST 2015 BOOKTUBETHON DAY 1 3.5 STARS I realise for the first time what being sent to the island really means the total annihilation of hope Such an intriguing gripping read really enjoyed this one The premise and story were so exciting tense, keeping me on the edge of my seat as the secrets were revealed The island was very cool too This book had one of the best twists I ve read in a long time I was caught completely off guard, left speechless.The reason this lost a star a half was because t [...]

In the past, I ve noted that dystopians are not my favorite genre, but that doesn t keep me from trying them from time to time and I have found many that I love I have recently started changing my mind with the influx of really different traditionally and indie published dystopians This one rocked It read a bit like a horror story to me it was just so unimaginable what was happening From beginning to end the inhabitants or should I say the outcasts on the island are constantly barraged by some t [...]

Dystopians have become extremely popular in YA recently And the problem with the popularity comes trying to find a way to take a well saturated genre such as Dystopian and try to write something completely unique for it It almost feels like an impossible feat, because almost every time you will be able to draw some similarity to other Dystopian books This is where The Forsaken comes in, it is without a doubt a great book But you will find you see yourself drawing comparisons to many different tr [...]

2.5 5The Forsaken It reads like a mish mash of Lord of the Flies and Maze Runner and some other stuff that I have read and liked A good deal of it bored me Some of it read too convenient and not sinister enough or maybe too sinister as if trying too hard If I were to piece it apart, the individual bits could have been interesting ala Lord of Flies but instead of a plane crash landing and kids attempting to survive this one has a prison with factions whose loyalties and goals were not that clear [...]

This was a very fast read with lots of action It was really good but I found the ending lacking and unsatisfying It wasn t that it was bad this was not the case at all, it s just the ending was not as good as the rest of the book Alena saw her parents taken at 10 years old by the UNA They tell her their gone and she s theirs now the UNA s orphan When children reach 16 it is mandatory for them to take a test which known to them decides if they will be rebels or not They are designed to keep the p [...]
