i broke down and read the Hunger Game books a while ago.....and i have to say for the most part i wish i could have that time back.....but there are some great ideas in there and the final half of the 3rd book was pretty fun

for some reason i'm on a King kick


i'm about a 3rd into this one and already it's 2 billion times better than the Stand

perhaps mr King should stick to good horror story telling rather than attempting to re-write the fucking bible

It is King's best work, IMO. It's the only one that I'm willing to reread.

I never finished it cause the copy I was reading was missing like fifty pages in the middle or something, but it was definitely fantastic. I've reread Salem's Lot though. Probably the only legitimately scary/or at least creepy vampire book I've ever read other than Dracula, though of course King flubbed the ending as he usually does.

I read like all the big YA franchises. It's a lot better than Divergent at least

No they are shiiiite, so contrived and they ended horribly

The Gemma Doyle trilogy is really good though if you're looking for good YA. But anything with Magical Lesbians is great.

Magical Lesbians does not sound very Dystopian to me

It's not, it's historical fiction YA

if you're looking for Dystopian I recommend Cloud Atlas tho B)
