I read a lot of dystopian and post-apocalyptic books, but this... this was something else.
I've read books that have made me paranoid (Life as We Knew it), I've read books that have a horrible premise (Hunger Games) and I've read books that don't pull back the gross factor (Gone), but Pure hit on all these things. It was scary in a whole new way, and the parts you figured were going to be totally predictable had enough of a twist on them to keep them fresh.
Yes, this book disturbed me. Yes, it was kind of intense reading. Yes, I am counting the days until the next one.
I'm the lucky librarian who gets to choose all the library's kids, teen and audiovisual materials. That means I read reviews for a living and my "to read" list is never-ending! I mostly read books for kids and teens, but I adore cozy mysteries too especially culinary cozies and even crack open a few thrillers and memoirs. I'm a huge Star Wars fan and I like to bake, power walk and hang out with my family.
