What I'm Reading Right Now

I just started reading Gathering Blue (The Giver #2) by Lois Lowry

Gathering Blue (The Giver #2)

Don't know what its about? Check out the Goodreads page linked here or keep reading. 

"In her strongest work to date, Lois Lowry once again creates a mysterious but plausible future world. It is a society ruled by savagery and deceit that shuns and discards the weak. Left orphaned and physically flawed, young Kira faces a frightening, uncertain future. Blessed with an almost magical talent that keeps her alive, she struggles with ever broadening responsibilities in her quest for truth, discovering things that will change her life forever.

As she did in The Giver, Lowry challenges readers to imagine what our world could become, and what will be considered valuable. Every reader will be taken by Kira's plight and will long ponder her haunting world and the hope for the future"

Since I just started reading this novel, I don't have a formal opinion of the work just yet. I did really enjoy the first book in the series The Giver. You can check out my review here

I will post a review soon after I am done reading :)
