And my theme is.........
A to Z Young Adult Book Reviews!!!
When I decided on doing that as my theme I told myself that every single book I picked would start with the correct letter meaning that the only book that could start with The could only be the letter T.
I had no idea how difficult it would be to achieve that but I am pleased to announce that I conquered the goal I had set for myself!!!!
During this month long challenge I will only be posting the book cover along with my review so that means no links as I want my readers to enjoy my posts and not get bogged down by extras.
*Please note that starting May 1st this blog will no longer be posting young adult content as I have started a new blog just for that. If you love young adult content then visit me at YA Book Divas.*
I can't wait for the challenge to begin!!!
During the month of April I will be participating in the 2016 Blogging From A to Z Challenge!
What that means is that for 26 days in April I will be posting something that starts with the letter of the day. For example, April 1st will begin with the letter A, April 2nd is the letter B and so on and so forth. Sundays are the only day when I will not be posting.
I've never done anything like this so I am looking forward to doing it. Can I meet this challenge head on or will I fizzle out? Only way for you to find out is to visit me everyday!
I am already running behind schedule but visit me tomorrow when I'll reveal my theme which everyone else participating in this challenge already did on March 21st.
See you tomorrow and don't forget to Boost The Signal!

In Meritropolis everyone is assigned a numerical Score that decides their worth to society and whether they live or die. After a young boy is killed because of a low Score, his brother plots to take down the System.
The year is AE3, 3 years after the Event. Within the walls of Meritropolis, 50,000 inhabitants live in fear, ruled by the brutal System that assigns each citizen a merit score that dictates whether they live or die. Those with the highest scores thrive, while those with the lowest are subject to the most unforgiving punishment–to be thrust outside the city gates, thrown to the terrifying hybrid creatures that exist beyond.
But for one High Score, conforming to the System just isn’t an option. Seventeen-year-old Charley has a brother to avenge. And nothing–not even a totalitarian military or dangerous science–is going to stop him.
Where humankind has pushed nature and morals to the extreme, Charley is amongst the chosen few tasked with exploring the boundaries, forcing him to look deep into his very being to discern right from wrong. But as he and his friends learn more about the frightening forces that threaten destruction both without and within the gates, Meritropolis reveals complexities they couldn’t possibly have bargained for…
I received an eARC when I signed up to host the book tour. I made no guarantee of a favorable review and the opinions expressed here are my own.
An easy to read dystopian novel with action, adventure and some interesting animal mutations. The characters are likeable and I really enjoyed when it was decided to revolt and how.
I give this book:

“Fifty years ago the Shadows betrayed me, left me to wither slowly into nothing, chained deep inside a hidden mountain cave. Meanwhile they took control of my kingdom, killing or enslaving any who would dare oppose them. But I am a patient woman … and immortal. The Shadows should enjoy their reign of terror while they can, in the meantime, I will continue to stare at these dark walls plotting my revenge. After all, it is only a matter of time, and I have all the time in the world.” K.
In the small town of Vicaris, Mikel and his daughter Citera live in and run a small clinic. It’s often chaotic and overwhelming, but neither of them would have it any other way. But their desire to help those in need, regardless of race or status, has often made them a target of the harassment by the Shadows forces.
Even so, when their Full-blood friend Rigar shows up at the back door of the clinic with the emaciated body of a young woman, Mikel doesn’t hesitate to bring her inside. And when they find out only minutes later the Shadows forces, including their henchman the Enforcer, are heading their direction, Mikel bravely puts his life on the line to protect the mysterious stranger.
Unbeknownst to Mikel, this young woman is the immortal queen the Shadows have been searching for decades to find. And it doesn’t take long before Mikel and his friends find themselves thrust into the midst of an ancient feud that will eventually decide the fate of Vanteria once and for all.
