SUMMARY:  

For fans of television shows Black Mirror and Westworld, this compelling, mind-bending novel is a twisted look into the future, exploring how far we will go to remake ourselves into the perfect human specimen and what it means to be human at all.

Set in our world, spanning the near to distant futures, Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful is a novel made up of six interconnected stories that ask how far we will go to remake ourselves into the perfect human specimens, and how hard that will push the definition of "human."

This extraordinary work explores the amazing possibilities of genetic manipulation and life extension, as well as the ethical quandaries that will arise with these advances. The results range from the heavenly to the monstrous. Deeply thoughtful, poignant, horrifying, and action-packed, Arwen Elys Dayton's Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful is groundbreaking in both form and substance.

REVIEW:

 A work of unforgettable vision and imagination. This book is everything I love about science fiction." - Jay Kristoff, New York Times bestselling coauthor of the Illuminae Files 

AM
AZING!

I really don’t have any other words for this book.

Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful is a though provoking book. As the story spans over hundreds of year and it shows the evolution of humanity. Which is exciting and terrifying to read. I think is funny how our vision of the future has changed, before it was flying cars and amazing discoveries and now is always a bit terrifying.

This book is a series of stories. Each can be read as a stand-alone, but they also go so well together. Is the story of the first vaccination, first clone, etc . I really enjoyed every single story, and what amazed me the most was the journey the author took me with each story because it felt so real.

It really reminded me of Black Mirror and gave me all the chills, this book is truly an adventure.

Not Even Bones By Rebecca Schaeffer -Book Review

Not Even Bones

By Rebecca Schaeffer 

Release Date: 04 September  2018

Publisher:  HMH Books for Young Readers

Genre: Teen & YA

SUMMARY: 

Dexter meets This Savage Song in this dark fantasy about a girl who sells magical body parts on the black market — until she’s betrayed.

Nita doesn’t murder supernatural beings and sell their body parts on the internet—her mother does that. Nita just dissects the bodies after they’ve been “acquired.” But when her mom brings home a live specimen, Nita decides she wants out — dissecting living people is a step too far.

But when she tries to save her mother’s victim, she ends up sold on the black market in his place — because Nita herself is a supernatural being. Now Nita is on the other side of the bars, and there is no line she won’t cross to escape and make sure no one can ever capture her again.

Nita did a good deed, and it cost her everything. Now she’s going to do a lot of bad deeds to get it all back.

REVIEW: 

Dark 
Deep 
Cruel 

Content Warning: Gore, Torture, Blood/Mutilation. 

This books was so dark and all that I needed. I feel like I am always wishing books would be darker or creepier and Not Even Bones definitely deliver.

I am always in for dark fuck-up stories with dark, fuck-up characters who I end up loving because moral ambiguity is one of my guilty pleasures.The writing style was so descriptive and raw , but I have to confess sometimes it was a bit slow paced for my taste as I just wanted to know what happens next in the story.

As an chemical engineer major I love a character that have love for science, and I loved the dissections we did in biology so Nita was my favorite character.

This book was definitely a pleasant surprise, so different and fresh from usual YA.

If you like This Savage Son and Dexter this book is definitely for you. Rebecca Schaeffer  has enchanted me.

I will be anxiously waiting for a sequel.

The Raging Ones By Krista & Becca Ritchie - Book Review

The Raging Ones

By Krista & Becca Ritchie 

Release Date: 14 August 2018

Publisher: Wednesday Books 

Genre: Teen & YA


BerryBookPages receives a small commission for any purchase made through the amazon link above.

SUMMARY: 

In a freezing world, where everyone knows the day they will die, three teens break all odds.

Franny Bluecastle, a tough city teen, dreams of dying in opulence, to see wealth she’s never known. Like the entire world, she believes it’s impossible to dodge a deathday.

Until the day she does.

Court Icecastle knows wealth. He also knows pain. Spending five years in Vorkter Prison, a fortress of ice and suffering, he dreams of life beyond the people that haunt him and the world that imprisoned him.

Mykal Kickfall fights for those he loves. The rugged Hinterlander shares a frustrating yet unbreakable connection with Court—which only grows more lawless and chaotic as their senses and emotions connect with Franny.

With the threat of people learning they’ve dodged their deathdays, they must flee their planet to survive. But to do so, all three will have to hide their shared bond as they vie for a highly sought after spot in the newest mission to space. Against thousands of people far smarter, who’ll live longer, and never fear death the way that they do.

REVIEW: 

What an incredible read! 

I honestly haven’t read any other of the Ritchie sisters' novels but they are definitely at the top of my TBR now. 

The Ritchie sisters' have unique world building skills as they created this world where only the wealthy get to enjoy the finer things in life, sounds familiar? Their writing reflects real life problems and is a smart critique of our current society. That why I loved reading this book so much because is scary how fantasy can get close to reality. 

The main characters were unique to say the least I have never encounter before The Raging Ones. 
The book is told in the 3 POVS of the main characters, Franny, Court and Mykal. My favorite was Court, but all three were wonderful. 

The plot was a wild and fast paced ride that you cannot miss and the writing style was delightful. 

I need book two! ASAP.
