Welcome to the fifth month of the reading/blogging event Flavia and I are hosting, Calendar Girls! It’s a monthly event designed to ignite bookish discussions between bloggers based on the monthly theme. For more information, check out my or Flavia’s launch posts!
Hahaha! So, funny story. I am the worst person to be hosting a bookish event where we talk about books because I obviously do not read enough. 😂 As you may have noticed, I have had very few options for the last couple months. This month was even worse because I almost NEVER actually make it to the second book in the series! Hahaha! Well, here goes nothing. :p
by Scott Westerfeld
I might be kind of cheating with this one because it’s not like… a sequel… o.O I mean, it is, but it’s the third book in the series. You feel me? Well, whatever judgement you decide to pass upon me for my choice, I won’t be changing my mind.
Now, I know many people have a deep-rooted hatred for this series, but I personally quite enjoyed it. I picked this one over other possible sequels because it didn’t just attempt to extend on the story that began in the first book. Additionally, it wasn’t simply an interlude from one book to the next (to make the plot timeline feasible. -.-) However, Specials offers its own plot, its own developments among the characters, and really dug deep into the issues with the modern world. It was brazen, blunt, and epic. And it offered a realistic ending. ;p
Anyone else read the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld?
If you haven’t, you should!
