I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.

Wither (Chemical Garden)

Wither (Chemical Garden) - Lauren DeStefano I couldn't help but be drawn in by such a great storyline. It was different from any book I've read. The virus that is plaguing man kind is such terrible thing and we experience its devastating effects for the first time along with Rhine.

I think this was flawless writing. We get back stories but the memories don't break up the story line, but instead we get some great insight into Rhine's life before becoming a wife and what it is that she so desperately clings on to. Truthfully, I wasn't expecting it to be this dark and a bit creepy. We don't know everything at the end of this and I'm glad the author isn't spelling everything out just yet. It leaves us hanging with a bit of mystery at the end and wondering just what is in store for later books.

I just loved this. I was enthralled from the first word and I couldn't put it down. I will be waiting impatiently for the next book. Very promising series that I look forward to reading!
