Hooked on Books

Reading is my passion! I'll read anything if it looks good & sounds good. I'm also a sucker for books with unique settings & I'd choose Hardcovers over E-Books any day! : ) -Empress Reece

Last Survivors- Book #1...

Life as We Knew It: A Novel - Emily Bauer, Susan Beth Pfeffer

Life as We Knew It is the first book in another dystopian/post-apocalyptic series about how a girl named Miranda and her family survive after a meteor knocks the moon closer to the earth which in turn throws all the seasons and weather out of whack. Their day to day struggle to survive is told through a series of journal entries which could have been a cool way to do it but most of the entries were just dull and boring. The author needed to spice them up a little and create some suspense behind them. I listened to the audio version too and I didn't care for the narrator's voice at all, especially her voice for the mother so that made a dry story even harder to swallow. At this point, I don't know if I'll continue with the series or not. If I do, I'll probably forgo the audio.
