Rather Be Reading: Magan's Farewell to 2013 - […] felt Veronica Rossi did a fantastic job of bringing the world to life in Through the Ever Night. I loved the first book in the series, Under the Never Sky, but dang did I feel even more hooked […]

Magan - We’ve since tweeted about this and I AM SO HAPPY YOU ENDED UP LOVING IT! Go, Hannah! You’re going to love, love, love Roar in TtEN. Dang! So good!

January 21, 2013 - 4:23 pm

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - I just started reading Under the Never Sky yesterday (I know, I know), but I already bought this one because I’m anticipating wanting to read it as soon as I’m done with the first book. I’m crazy, right?

I’m like 30% through and definitely need more info on what’s going on. Rossi just throws you right into the story, doesn’t she? I’m a little confused on some of this business, not going to lie.

Magan - Asheley — READ IT! READ IT! READ IT! 🙂

January 14, 2013 - 12:27 pm

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - Oh yay!!

I won a signed copy of this from Epic Reads several weeks ago and I’m DYING to get it in the mail. It seems like everyone has already read it and I’m having the most whiny of all fits because I WANT IT NOW WAHHH. Okay, I’m over that.

That being said, I literally DID just do a re-read of Under the Never Sky via audiobook recently and it was SO GOOD the second time around. And then I read the little novella. So I’m SO ANXIOUS to dive right into this story since everything is so fresh into my mind. I’m so excited that EVERYONE is loving it, and it seems like everyone is loving it at least as much or maybe even better than the first book. YAYYY!!!

January 13, 2013 - 2:49 pm

Magan - Anna — I don’t think I have a good answer. I LOVE THEM BOTH. EQUALLY.
Brittany — Yes! Natural is a great word to describe their relationship. It just worked. Le sigh…
Taylor — I hope you enjoy it just as much if not MORE!
Hemborgwife — you most certainly need to have this series in your life! 🙂

January 13, 2013 - 2:45 pm

Magan - Keertana — Yes! Me too! Ay yi yi! I just love all the characters! Can’t wait (well, I can because I don’t want it to end) to see how this wraps up!
Rachel — Haha! YES, your library does. I can’t wait to hear what you think about it. Roar = AWESOME.

January 13, 2013 - 2:43 pm

Magan - Mandee — YES, YES! Read UtNS SOON! 🙂

January 12, 2013 - 4:35 pm

VeganYANerds - I’ve skimmed this because I am yet to read UtNS (I know, I know!) but I promise it’s on my read-soon list!!

January 10, 2013 - 6:57 pm

Keertana @ Ivy Book Bindings - Yay! I’m so glad you loved this one! I just adored it and I was so pleasantly surprised by the direction Rossi chose to make this novel go in. I can’t wait for the sequel now and definitely Aria and Perry – not to mention Roar! LOVE HIM! 😀

January 10, 2013 - 3:15 pm

Rachel - MY LIBRARY NEEDS TO HURRY UP AND GIVE ME THIS BOOK. The wait is torture. I have heard nothing but good about TtEN. I’m so happy we get to see more of Roar. I loveeee him!

January 10, 2013 - 12:33 pm

Anna - PERRY OR ROAR: WHO DO I LOVE MORE? Decisions, decisions…

January 10, 2013 - 12:31 pm

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - I agree! I think Aria & Perry’s relationship felt much more natural in TtEN and I LOVED seeing so much more of Roar! I’m pretty sure I liked this one even more than UtNS! 🙂

January 10, 2013 - 10:31 am

Taylor @ Reading is the Thing - I loved Under the Never Sky, I can’t wait to read this one! Great review!

January 10, 2013 - 6:43 am

Hemborgwife - This sounds good I will need to search where I can get the first book!

YA Review: Middle Ground by Katie Kacvinsky - […] my review of Awaken from a few weeks ago, I talked about how much I loved the premise of this series. What happens when technology completely takes over our lives? Sure it seems like […]

October 7, 2012 - 9:29 pm

Kristen - I hadn’t heard of this one yet. The premise definitely sounds eerily plausible, and I’ve actually been thinking about these very same themes recently. When I spend too much time on my computer and not enough time in the outside world I feel strangely depleted and incomplete. I also haven’t read a dystopian in awhile, so I’ll be checking this out soon. Great review, Estelle. 🙂

October 4, 2012 - 10:52 pm

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I must say, the premise of this book is SO DARN INTRIGUING. I love that, to me, it feels very realistic – it is possible that the world will devolve into that state after years of exposure to all these technological advancements. It’s a little scary, and also, it’s something that I really DO NOT want happening. I want to be able to impart to my own kids and the future generations that there is significance in actual contact with the physical world and with others.

Okay, getting off my little soapbox now, but only to say that I’m definitely going to have to read this book for myself. Thanks for the awesome review!

October 3, 2012 - 1:51 pm

Anna - Wheee I love it!

October 3, 2012 - 10:25 am

Annette - I love the premise of this one and I’ve had it on my list for quite a while. I really enjoyed your review. Made me want to read it now!

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!

April 22, 2012 - 1:09 pm

April Books & Wine - I am ALL ABOUT FEELING SOMETHING!

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.
