I've been sick and icky, but I am currently restarting my reading spree (that I started sometime in summer).
So this past summer, I downloaded a app/software called Calibre. It is an eReader for books (like Kindle and nook) and then you can download books in torrents, etc. You can download Calibre HERE for free.
So, on my list of books this summer was the Divergent series.
I have a thing for dystopian society novels (Hunger Games and Divergent). So the next series I am currently working on is the Matched trilogy.
My next series I am in the middle of (the first book held me captive) was the Delirium series.
The next series I read was actually an older book series (with a movie released this year) called The Mortal Instruments.
A book that came out (from one of my favorite series) was Styxx by Sherrilyn Kenyon. It is the 23rd book in the series and was released on September 3 2013.
My next book/series is one I started in my senior year of high school before the release of the second, and now third, books. I may have mentioned it: Unwind.
"It takes place in the United States, somewhere in the near future. After a civil war—known as the Second Civil War or the Heartland War—is fought over abortion, a compromise was reached, allowing parents to sign an order for their children between the ages of 13 and 18 years old to be unwound—taken to "harvest camps" and having their body parts harvested for later use. The reasoning was that, since 100% (actually 99.44% taking into account the appendix and "useless" organs) was required to be used, unwinds did not technically "die", because their individual body parts lived on. In addition to unwinding, parents who are unable to raise their children to age thirteen for retroactive abortion have the option to "stork" their child by leaving it on another family's porch. If they don't get caught, the "storked" baby then becomes the other family's responsibility."
It follows the stories of three "unwinds" named Risa, Connor, and Lev. It also tells their backstories as to why each character specifically are being "unwound." Risa is a ward of the state, they don't want to "waste" money on her, so she is being unwound. Coming from a very religious family is Lev. His parents gave a 10th of everything to the needy (the tithe), so they decided "Why not give our tenth child to God as well?" Connor is 16, and he is one of the "troubled" unwinds. He's gotten into a lot of fights. This novel is follwed by UnWholly and UnSouled. Recently it was unveiled by Shusterman that there would be a fourth novel called UnDivided.
