Nevermore by Kelly Creagh
I read this while I was on vacation, and it was perfect because it's a story about a girl traveling through Central America. I was just in Florida (and mostly on the beach), but it felt fitting to enjoy this story somewhere other than my couch. Great descriptions that make you feel like you're there, unique characters and MC development. Loved!
This was a super fast and fun read. If you're intrigued but serious zombie books like The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan are too much for you (it was the only book to ever give me nightmares, even though I devoured the series), this hilarious book is for you.
I read this book intending to pay attention to the male POV for WIP research, but the story was SO interesting, often I forgot to do that. I suppose it's considered a dystopian, but it didn't feel much like one to me. It's set in modern times, in a community that uses subliminal messages to control formerly rebellious kids and teens. And what an ending. I still don't really know how to react to that...
I was SO excited to meet Shannon Hale at TLA in April. I adored Austenland, so getting my copy signed and picking up the newest one was a treat. I was a little worried that MiA wouldn't live up to my hopes, or that it would feel like a different version of Austenland, but they really are completely different. This one had so much excitement, a mystery, murder!, AND romance that you and the MC don't know if it's real or not. I hope she continues this "series." She's definitely set it up to keep going.
