The clear choice from our mamas was Inhuman by Kat Falls. The story is post-apocalyptic tale of a human engineered bio-tech advancement gone wrong. The story was fast moving with lots of twists and turns to keep readers engaged and guessing until the end.
Reading YA seems to be a popular choice for many in our group as the story is fast moving and easy to read.
One thing our bookclub has discussed is that it is not always easy to read the books you want to read once you become a parent. Life gets so busy it's hard to fit everything in. Trying new genres such as these Young Adult books has proven to be a surprisingly successful match for many of our mamas.
Here are a couple of quotes from our message board.
I loved the book! I've been finding it hard to read in general lately (I fall asleep far too easily!) but I could NOT put this book down. I never thought I'd enjoy the YA genre, but it's proven to keep me interested. I really enjoyed the storyline. It was not like anything I'd ever read before. I found the story easy to follow, but it wasn't too predictable. The cliffhanger at the end definitely makes me excited for the next one!
It was good – very creative and interesting storyline.
I loved the idea that the young girl goes on an adventure to save her father and finds the truth of her childhood revealed through the fairy tales her father had told her as bedtime stories.
