Good morning you guys! I’ve had my coffee and Little Einsteins is currently playing in the background. Needless to say, I’m pretty peppy this morning.
Today’s topic: a book recommendation. I love this, because although I usually stick to book recs on Wordy Wednesday, I can’t possibly review all of them. So, today I get an extra chance. Woot!
“A million ways to die. One way to live.”
UNDER THE NEVER SKY introduces us to Aria, a girl that lives in an enclosed city known as Reverie. After being blamed for an incident that nearly destroys their perfect city, Aria is exiled into the outside world, where she’s meant to die. Instead of meeting her death, she runs into an “outsider,” or as Aria sees him, a savage. Naturally, Perry has a story of his own. He’s on a mission to save his young nephew, who has been kidnapped by the very people that cast Aria from the only existence she’s ever known. Aria quickly realizes that her only chance of survival is sticking with a guy that both frightens and disgusts her from the get-go. Of course, there’s always more than what meets the eye.
As strange as it may sound, one thing that marks a good book for me is the quotes I’m able to take away from it. Some books simply tell us a story; other books draw us into a world that keeps us captivated from page-to-page. One of my favorite quotes is found in Perry’s POV:
She looked up. “A world of nevers under a never sky.”
She fit in well then, he thought. A girl who never shut up.
Harsh? Eh…wait until you read the story. You’ll see what he means. LOL That said, I do love Aria. And Perry makes my heart happy. It’s definitely worth the read!
