Next on my reading list: Pure by Julianna Baggott

When I finally finish The Night Circus (about halfway) I’ll be moving onto a new book I found on a trip to the supermarket, Pure by Julianna Baggott. I didn’t know what it was about but apparently if you ‘Love The Hunger Games’ you’ll ‘love Pure’ so I thought why not give it a try.

I think I prefer the US cover but this isn't too bad.

Pressia barely remembers the Detonations or much about life during the Before. In her sleeping cabinet behind the rubble of an old barbershop where she lives with her grandfather, she thinks about what is lost--how the world went from amusement parks, movie theaters, birthday parties, fathers and mothers . . . to ash and dust, scars, permanent burns, and fused, damaged bodies. And now, at an age when everyone is required to turn themselves over to the militia to either be trained as a soldier or, if they are too damaged and weak, to be used as live targets, Pressia can no longer pretend to be small. Pressia is on the run. (Goodreads)

I do like dystopian fiction so I’m looking forward to reading this.
What's next on your reading list?
