Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - You made this one sound even better than Bumped in your review, even without revealing too much. I absolutely ADORE that the book made you so enthusiastic. That makes me even more excited to read it!

I also really liked Bumped. ANNNND the whole satire thing is super cool, like I like when authors work in certain relevant issues that we see every day, like the whole celebrity saturation and stuff.

Anyways, I’m really looking forward to reading my copy this week! 🙂

And your review has me like six times more pumped.

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!
