So awhile ago, I read a book that I just randomly picked up called After The End. Here’s the pic of the first book:
I obviously read this before I ran this blog and met you guys, so if you want to check out my review for this book, just visit my Goodreads page, and I linked it to the review. This was when I thought I would never have friends to follow and read my posts, so I just did reviews for me. (I like it this way much better 😘)
So…after reading that book, I wanted to read the sequel. I kept checking it out, but other books and RaRs got in the way, and I had to keep renewing it and requesting it…finally it was time to read it and send it back to Allendale Township Library (I’ve kept it way too long for it to be fair, and that’s not fair to other people).
Be that as it may, I’m now reading Until The Beginning, the sequel, by Amy Plum. Here’s the pic of the current book I’m reading:
World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They’ve survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there.
At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life.
When Juneau returns from a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war. Cities were never destroyed. The world is intact. Everything was a lie.
Now Juneau is adrift in a modern-day world she never knew existed. But while she’s trying to find a way to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past.
When Juneau’s clan disappeared, she lost so much more than her friends and family. She soon discovered everything she thought she knew about her life was a lie. Her people’s gifts were actually secret abilities that others wanted, desperately enough to kidnap an entire village.
Juneau and her new companion Miles’s cross-country journey to find her clan has led them to a game preserve in New Mexico. Now Juneau’s people are finally within reach, and she will stop at nothing to save them. But she has a target on her back too, because unbeknownst to her she is the key to unlocking everything. To rescue her people – and herself – Juneau must discover what she, and her abilities, are truly capable of.
I placed it in the recommended categories on my bookshelf when I first found it, but after I’ve read it I’ve realized that the best genre to put this in would be YA Paranormal. It’s not a dystopian, though Juneau is led to believe it is post-WWIII. But everything is like present-day, so it’s not dystopian. It suggests science fiction, but there are no elements that fit that, and the only elements of “fantasy” are Juneau’s abilities, which fit more with a girl with a gift in a contemporary setting: hence, YA Paranormal.
So anyway, that’s what I’m currently reading, and I’m on page 133/321. (This is why it sometimes takes me awhile to comment back or do Tags…I get really into the books I read, and I’m trying to get them read before school starts. I suppose I’ll be more active here and read less when school is in session. But hey, the blog is about books, right? So I guess it’s good I’m an obsessive reader!! (Yep, if I tell myself that enough it will all be okay)
What do you think? Have you read any of Amy Plum’s other books? (I read Die For Me and I have the other books checked out, so those are coming up, too)
Anyway, thanks for reading and I’m going back to MY reading.
Look for my readathon tag tomorrow, with a graphic created by Aimal (thanks again by the way!!) Yes, I’m going to try to do the Readathon. And since it started Aug 14th, I may include this book in it! So yay!!
See y’all later: I got a book to read!!
