Adaptation by Malinda Lo - Review (Adaptation #1) | Never Too Fond of BooksNever Too Fond of Books - […] Rather Be Reading: Despite my drawbacks, Lo successfully left me aching to know what happens to her characters. The blending of paranormal elements and conspiracy theories was incredibly intriguing. Pieces of the story felt so real to me that I couldn’t help but be wary of flocks of birds when I saw them. I have no idea what will happen next for Reese, but I am very anxious to see what Lo has in store for us. […]

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - The thing about this book is that the mystery behind the birds and what happened to the characters is so DARN intriguing. I may not know how to feel about the sort of contemporary turn it takes, but I do not that my curiosity must be satisfied when it comes to the sci-fi bit.

elena - hmm this does sound like a book that makes you question a lot of things but the change of direction sounds jarring. i like that there are conspiracy theories though! insightful interview as always, m!

Aneeqah - This book sounds SO good! I mean, conspiracy theories? Who DOESN’T want to read about that?! However, I can see why you didn’t love this one, Magan. It seems like there’s a distinct line between the action and the more contemporary aspect of the story. It sounds like it would have been better if it had been a little more mixed together. Nonetheless, I’ll keep an eye out for this book at my library! The synopsis definitely has me intrigued, to say the least.

Fabulous review Magan! <3

Kristen - Conspiracy theories? YES! We don’t get enough of those in NON-dystopian YA. Would love to see more in contemps. From everything else you said, though, this is a book that I may or may not enjoy. I’ll look for it at my library and see. Great review! 🙂
