Book Buzz: Witches of East End Book Trailer

Home > Book Buzz > The Witches of East End A fan of the BLUE BLOODS series, I’m exited about Melissa de la Cruz’s soon to be released, Witches of East End.

De la Cruz will weave characters from her best-selling Blue Bloods young adult series into this new paranormal series for...

Home > Book Buzz > Enclave by Ann Aguirre TRAILER & RELEASE DAY! Man do I want to read this book! HAPPY RELEASE DAY TO ENCLAVE! More Dystopian goodness…will this be book #13 to my happiness in Dystopian list? New York City has been decimated by war and plague, and most of civilization has migrated to underground enclaves, where life expectancy is no more than the early 20’s. When Deuce turns 15, she takes on her role as a Huntress, and is paired with Fade, a teenage Hunter who lived Topside as a young boy. When she and Fade discover that the neighboring enclave has been decimated by the tunnel monsters—or Freaks—who seem to be growing more organized, the elders refuse to listen to warnings. And when Deuce and Fade are exiled from the enclave, the girl born in darkness must survive in daylight, in the ruins of a city whose population has dwindled to a few dangerous gangs. As the two are guided by Fade’s long-ago memories, they face dangers, and feelings, unlike any they’ve ever known. Find out more about ‘Enclave’ here, including the first two chapters, the book cover and an interview with the author! What do you think…OMG I need to read it even...

Post-Apocalyptic vs. Dystopian

Home > Book Buzz > Post-Apocalyptic vs. Dystopian There is nothing like a bit of Apocalyptic / Post-Apocalyptic fiction to get the motor going. Two seconds after reading you’ll be out there planting a vegetable garden, stock-piling canned goods and reinforcing your house with plywood. Well, at least if the book was good. The thing about Post-Apocalyptic fic is that it is sometimes misconstrued for dystopian. Call me a purist, but to me there is a huge difference between dystopian fic and PA fic. Well not that huge, but I think it might all be a matter of perspective. Apocalyptic and Post-Apocalyptic cover man’s struggle to battle Earth shattering events, their quest for survival and they usually remember life before the event. Whereas, Dystopian fiction covers man’s struggle against an oppressor, whether it is a governing body or enslavement. A lot of Dystopian novels can be classified as Post-Apocalyptic or vice versa because a lot of writers use an Apocalyptic  event to transition into a Dystopian society. Novels like 1984 and Uglies linked ecological disasters to the societies gaining control. Others link war, alien invasion, global warming as the start to the worlds downward spiral. But, in a Dystopian an Apocalypse does not necessarily have to happen. It is just usually the just case, based on the fundamental principal that a scared society will relinquish control for safety. Which...
