Book Summary:

Sixteen-year-old Silver Melody lives in a world where 80% of the population has modified their DNA. Known as the altereds, those people now possess enhancements like wings, tails, and increased strength or intelligence. Although Silver’s parents created the nanite pill used to deliver these genetic modifications, Silver is proud of her unadjusted state.

However, when the president declares all unadjusteds must take a nanite, Silver has no choice but to flee the city with her father and some friends to prevent the extinction of the unadjusteds.

With Silver’s mother in prison for treason, Silver’s father is the unadjusteds’ only hope at finding a cure. But time is running out as Silver’s father is captured by the president’s almost immortal army. Vicious hellhounds are on Silver’s trail, and her only chance to recover her father involves teaming up with a new group of unlikely friends before all humanity is lost.

Book Review:

I was definitely interested when Marisa offered the opportunity to read The Unadjusteds as I don't tend to read a lot of dystopia literature anymore. I was, however, surprised how much I enjoyed my time reading The Unadjusteds and would definitely recommend.

I was definitely part of the dystopian phase when it was hot around the Hunger Games series and after I got out of that phase, I have always been interested in finding new and unique worlds that are different. The Unadjusteds does offer a new world, where DNA can be changed and I think that it blends sci-fi and fantasy well as some characters have wings and can turn invisible. I did really like it and how the plot developed as a result. I do think that the kind of evil leader was a little predictable but it did not take away from the overall story. 

I did also really like the writing especially the beginning as it was really fast-paced and I think that the world was developed easily in the first couple of chapters and got me really into the story. I raced through the first half of the book and I think for a book that is over 400 pages, it did not feel like that. This is really great and I felt like it was easy to read. 

I did like all the characters in the book and feel like they were well-developed and were easy to relate to, as much as they can be in a dystopian world. I felt like we definitely get this through Silver as we do see her develop throughout the story through the love of her family. I also think we see that she does somewhat accept what she has is taught to hate for the love of her family. 

I do love a focus on family in the book and this is something that is included in the Unadjusteds and I really loved it. Especially when dealing with the idea that Silver has to save her parents. I also did like the romantic relationship and he was also a likeable character and it did not overshadow the story. 

The book did leave with a cliffhanger ending but at the same time, it was also quite open. I don't know if there is a sequel to the book but I would be interested to read it if there is one! 

The Verdict:

The Unadjusteds is a fast paced and engaging read that is worthy of being your next read!

On Turning 22

So on Wednesday (today when this goes up) I will be 22. *is currently listening to 22 by Taylor Swift* Obviously. The thing about turning 22 is the fact that you have just turned 21. I say just it was a whole year ago. 21 which has so many meanings behind it which is what I mentioned in my post last year so turning 22 feels kind of meh.21 felt to me last year as to be some big thing like my whole life was going to change. I was graduating from university after so much in my life felt like it was going to change.But the thing is it didn't.I stayed for a Masters in History. At the same university with people that I have know for some year and new ones and of course the people the people that graduated last year ain't there anymore and I do miss them. Things are still kind of the same.Turning 22 feels like it's in the middle. It's not special. It doesn't hold special meaning. It's just itself. This is how I feel like 2019.2019 is such a middling year for me. I'…
