I am so excited to get the book club started!!! So I have decided to start it up next month on the first. I have already picked the book and the sign up form is complete so lets get this announcement going. For the month of May we will be reading...
Humanity is all but extinguished after a war with partials—engineered organic beings identical to humans—has decimated the world’s population. Reduced to only tens of thousands by a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island. The threat of the partials is still imminent, but, worse, no baby has been born immune to the disease in over a decade. Humanity’s time is running out.
When sixteen-year-old Kira learns of her best friend’s pregnancy, she’s determined to find a solution. Then one rash decision forces Kira to flee her community with the unlikeliest of allies. As she tries desperately to save what is left of her race, she discovers that the survival of both humans and partials rests in her attempts to answer questions of the war’s origin that she never knew to ask.
Combining the fast-paced action of The Hunger Games with the provocative themes of Battlestar Galactica, Partials is a pulse-pounding journey into a world where the very concept of what it means to be human is in question—one where our sense of humanity is both our greatest liability, and our only hope for survival.
I hope you are as excited as I am, so here is the details for you!
We will start reading on May 1st, We will end reading and have a live discussion on Ali Talks Live on the 30th of May!!!! I think it will be a blast to talk about this book live with the ones that sign up!
There will be 10 spots open for bloggers, two spots are already taken, so they are filling up fast. Make sure you fill out this form by April 27th, if you want to join in the fun. Also please make sure, if you don't already, have your book by May 1st so you don't have to rush to catch up reading. Once a week I will be posting some questions on the blog or on the Face book page and who ever answers fastest and first will get a prize.
Thanks so much and I hope you all have fun with this! I'm supper excited to read this one!!!
