Article 5 by Kristen Simmons

368 pages. Beth and Ryan were holding hands. It was enough to risk a formal citation for indecency, and they knew better, but I didn't say anything. Curfew rounds wouldn't begin for another two hours, and freedom was stolen in moments like these. Enjoy dystopias? Give Article 5 a try. Be forewarned, if romance annoys you, then this is not the book for you. Article 5 is a quick read. I read it in a day. I definitely felt it was a page turner, I couldn't wait to find what happened in the end. Ember, the heroine, was a mix of emotions, and often I found my self becoming frustrated as she couldn't seem to make up her mind. Her ideas of right and wrong were inflexible and sometimes seemed a little out of place considering the world she lived in. Chase is the boyfriend that she has a love/hate relationship with. Read Article 5 If you like dystopias If you like romances If you like action/survival novels This book gets an 8 out of 10. Currently reading: not sure

Truancy City--a must read!!

I just finished the ARC of the conclusion to the Truancy series--Truancy City. The conclusion to the Truancy trilogy by author Isamu Fukui, whose first book, Truancy, was published when he was a senior in high school. As a new threat arises from outside the walls of the City, the warring Truants and Educators must join forces or be destroyed. The fate of the City is determined at last in this long-awaited conclusion to the Truancy trilogy. This is definitely a page turner with some surprising twists and turns. It is the first book that has completely caught my attention in a long time. This is a must read for anyone who loves dystopias. This is definitely rated 10 out of 10
