Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - This sounds SO GOOD. I haven’t read any books by her yet (I know, I know, I should read the Jessica Darling series, I know!), but I promise I will try to remedy that this year!

Jasmine Rose - I know a lot of people were pretty mixed about this one, but I, for one, really enjoyed it. I loved that though it was a disturbing world, Megan managed to make it funny without making light of the situation. It was definitely a refreshing change on the dystopian scene.

elena - I was a fan of the Jessica Darling series too (well, up to the point I read at!) and I think Bumped sounds so interesting because it’s drastically different from Jessica! I really have a thing against reading pregnancy in books so I probably won’t be reading this one anytime but I love the points you made. Even reading about the way the teens are treated make me sick. I can’t imagine their reality and their dilemmas sound really harsh. It seems like a book that raises questions! A really great, insightful review, Estelle!

Jessie Marie - After seeing people featuring Thumped for Waiting on Wednesday today and it’s release date looming, I am happy to see your Bumped review pop up! I knew nothing about the series other than the covers were pretty cute.

Loved your review. Can definitely tell you enjoyed it. The forced teen pregnancy is a creepy issue but what’s most creepy is that I don’t think it’d be too much of a stretch for us to get there from today’s world. You know, a lot of dystopias have some major, far-fetched event that leads to the society as described but this? Maybe not so far off. That’s frightening.

Anyway, great review. I’ll have to check this out!
