Cured (Stung, #2)Cured
Bethany Wiggins
(Stung #2)
Published: March 4th, 2014
Genres: YA, Dystopian, Sci-f
Now that Fiona Tarsis and her twin brother, Jonah, are no longer beasts, they set out to find their mother, with the help of Bowen and a former neighbor, Jacqui. Heading for a safe settlement rumored to be in Wyoming, they plan to spread the cure along the way--until they are attacked by raiders. Luckily, they find a new ally in Kevin, who saves them and leads them to safety in his underground shelter. But the more they get to know Kevin, the more they suspect he has ties to the raiders. He also seems to know too many details about Jacqui and her family—details that could endanger them all. For the raiders will do anything they can to destroy the cure that would bring an end to their way of life. 
Bethany Wiggins’s reimagining of our world after an environmental catastrophe won’t fail to stun readers.

Fire & Flood (Fire & Flood, #1)Fire & Flood
A modern day thrill ride, where a teen girl and her animal companion must participate in a breathtaking race to save her brother's life—and her own.

Tella Holloway is losing it. Her brother is sick, and when a dozen doctors can't determine what's wrong, her parents decide to move to Montana for the fresh air. She's lost her friends, her parents are driving her crazy, her brother is dying—and she's helpless to change anything.

Until she receives mysterious instructions on how to become a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed. It's an epic race across jungle, desert, ocean, and mountain that could win her the prize she desperately desires: the Cure for her brother's illness. But all the Contenders are after the Cure for people they love, and there's no guarantee that Tella (or any of them) will survive the race.

The jungle is terrifying, the clock is ticking, and Tella knows she can't trust the allies she makes. And one big question emerges: Why have so many fallen sick in the first place?


Relic (Books of Eva, #1)Relic
Heather Terrell
(The Book Of Eva #1)
Published: October 29th, 2013
Genres: YA, Dystopian, Fantasy
The truth will test you...

For fans of Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games: high fantasy and dystopia meet in this high-stakes tale of a civilization built on lies and the girl who single-handedly brings it down.

When Eva’s twin brother, Eamon, falls to his death just a few months before he is due to participate in The Testing, no one expects Eva to take his place. She’s a Maiden, slated for embroidery classes, curtseys, and soon a prestigious marriage befitting the daughter of an Aerie ruler. But Eva insists on honoring her brother by becoming a Testor. After all, she wouldn’t be the first Maiden to Test, just the first in 150 years.

Eva knows the Testing is no dance class. Gallant Testors train for their entire lives to search icy wastelands for Relics: artifacts of the corrupt civilization that existed before The Healing drowned the world. Out in the Boundary Lands, Eva must rely on every moment of the lightning-quick training she received from Lukas—her servant, a Boundary native, and her closest friend now that Eamon is gone.

But there are threats in The Testing beyond what Lukas could have prepared her for. And no one could have imagined the danger Eva unleashes when she discovers a Relic that shakes the Aerie to its core.


So, whatch'a think of my top 3 choices of the week? If you can help me out, leave a comment voting on which book should come first.

  1. All three books sound good, but my vote goes to Fire & flood. I really want to read that one, and heard so many good things! Hope you enjoy whichever you choose.

    1. I've heard SO many amazing things about FIRE & FLOOD too! I can't wait to read it! I's calling to!

      Thanks for voting! :)

  2. Oooooh I like the cover for Cured. But my vote is with FIRE & FLOOD, it's awesome, the mc isn't exactly Katniss awesomeness but she's pretty funny and Guy is rather cool. I hope you enjoy it!

    1. CURED is a book that I am DYING to read! Stung the first book was my all time fave last year! But I really want to read FIRE & FLOOD too! And since that's releasing before CURED, I'll probably read that first!

      I'm glad to see the MC isn't all that bad, I'm looking forward to it!

      Thanks for voting! :)

  3. I'm going to vote for Cured! I just got a copy of Stung (for some reason it wasn't widely available here in Canada) and can't WAIT to read it!


I love meeting new people through comments, and I always try to comment back! Thanks for stopping by! :)
