Another great book by one of my favorite young adult author! Everlost follows two teenagers who die in a head-on collision and bump each other out of the "go-towards-the-light-tunnel. This bump causes them to end up in Everlost, a place children go who do not "reach where they are going". Our two protagonists must juggle "surviving" this realm where they are at constant risk of sinking to the Earth's core, fighting one adversary after another, and trying  Can Allie and Nick overcome all the obstacles against them to find a way out of Everlost before forgetting who they are and why they ever wanted to leave?

This book was so good! I wish it didn't have to end! This is the sequel to Legend, this installment definitely amped up the drama and makes me want to immediately pick up the last book in the series! 

Prodigy picks up immediately after Day & June's escape from Batalla Hall. They are now on the run from the Republic, and are attempting to join the Patriots, a secret group that wants to lead a revolution that would end the Republic and return of the United States. To join the Patriots, June & Day will have to assist in the assassin of the Republic's leader. They are all for it, until things start to not add up, who is the real enemy here & what will really happen if June & Day help kill the Elector? It's a race against time to uncover the truth and prevent chaos from ensuing!

  • Where I am to my AR goal: 20/50

This book was so great; I loved it! It has similar themes to Hunger Games & Maze Runner, which is possibly why I like it a lot. Legend is set in a future dystopian society, where our two main characters live in The Republic of America, a militarized country that has been at constant war against the Colonies of America. We meet June, one of the Republic's up and coming best and brightest soldiers, who would do anything for her country. Her mission is to target & destroy the Republic's number one public enemy, Day, a rebel who has been sabotaging the Republic's missions. Yet, she starts to think things are not as they seem when she actually meets Day, who seems to be the total opposite of what the Republic has said he is. June is at a lose as to what to do, does she trust the country that she loves or this new boy who speaks of revolution.
