    He was tall, at least six feet, with dirty blond hair that hung over his eyes. His T-shirt read Nietzsche Is My Homeboy. So, that was Matt. Who Julie Seagles likes. A lot. But there is also Finn. Who she flat out loves. Complicated? Awkward? Completely. But really, how was this freshly-minted Boston transplant and newbie college freshman supposed to know that she would end up living with the family of an old friend of her mother’s? This was all supposed to be temporary.

    not exactly what i was expecting when i read the blurb of the book. I knew what was going on very early on in the book but still didn't make me like it any less. I loved the characters (especially celeste) I loved all the quirkiness. Made me laugh out loud & tear up at times.

    Ember Walsh is a trusting soul with the quiet beauty of her late mother, who perished in a mysterious car crash when Ember was three. A little tomboyish from being raised by her father, Ember packs a punch when a stranger gets pushy with her in a bar, catching the steely blue eyes of a tall, gorgeous tattooed man — Trace Montgomery. Still damaged from her last disastrous relationship and warned off the bad boy by friends, Ember fights the smoldering heat that Trace sparks in her when he begins shadowing her like a dark angel.

    I know I know; there's lots of good reviews for this book but I just couldn't get into it! This is my first negative review and I feel bad about it. I couldn't stand the narrator for THIS particular book. She would've been great in another; but she just didn't do it for me in this one. I almost stopped reading until a friend said "wait for the twist". Waiting, waiting, waiting...there was so much going on with the different side plots that they didn't make sense as a whole later. It's like some of the stuff was just thrown in. there were some good parts but mostly I could've used my credit for something much better.

    When the world ends, can love survive? For Scarlet, raising her two daughters alone means fighting for tomorrow is an everyday battle. Nathan has a wife, but can't remember what it's like to be in love; only his young daughter Zoe makes coming home worthwhile. Miranda's biggest concern is whether her new VW Bug is big enough to carry her sister and their boyfriends on a weekend escape from college finals. When reports of a widespread, deadly "outbreak" begin to surface, these ordinary people face extraordinary circumstances and suddenly their fates are intertwined.

    I was so excited for this to come out. It was really just a let down. It got good about the last hour & a half maybe but I almost had to stop reading it. The middle of the book definitely could've been better

    Thanks to Connor, Lev, and Risa—and their high-profile revolt at Happy Jack Harvest Camp—people can no longer turn a blind eye to unwinding. Ridding society of troublesome teens while simultaneously providing much-needed tissues for transplant might be convenient, but its morality has finally been brought into question. However, unwinding has become big business, and there are powerful political and corporate interests that want to see it not only continue, but also expand.

    Story

    This book was very immaginative & scary to think life could ever be like this. If you liked the Hunger Games, I think you will like this. There was one scene that was pretty hard for me to listen to. Gory/messed up type things don't really bother me but this got me a little...i was cringing! Lots of twists & turns. The characters were good & you will be rooting for them

    When's the next book going to be on audible??!!! That's what you'll be thinking :)
