Okay, so, Legend by Marie Lu was the paperback pick for September. It was an interesting book. This genre is usually a hit or miss for me because it's not a genre I love, but it's not a genre I avoid either. It's not my typical read, but I try to give them a chance, knowing there is a good chance I'll love the book.
This is a fast-paced read, but I didn't really connect to the characters. Well, scratch that. I did tear up at one part, so I connected somewhat. However, I haven't decided if I'll read the rest yet, but I can say I will read another book by Lu.
I was definitely intrigued with how Day's POV was in a different font and color than June's. It was different and I'm wondering about the reasoning behind it.
This is my last Paperback Pick of the year. Hopefully, I'll do better next year and not slack so much. We can only hope! :)
What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic's wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic's highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.
From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths—until the day June's brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family's survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias's death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.
