"'We each have a sorry. They did this to us. There was no outside aggressor. They wanted an Apocalypse. They wanted the end. And they made it happen. It was orchestrated - who got on, who didn't. There was a master list. We weren't on it. We were left here to die. They want to erase us, the past, but we can't let them."
QOTD: What book do you think should be made into a movie/tv show?
No long caption today, just an epic book recommendation! Pure by Julianna Baggott is exciting, emotional, and engrossing (the 3 Es 😉). I'd recommend it to anyone who likes sci fi and dystopian, if you liked the Hunger Games, Divergent, Under the Dome, or Handmaid's Tale, you'll like this! This would be a great tv show because it's so visual and epic 😍
Here's a summary:
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 - - 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.
There are those who escaped the apocalypse unmarked. Pures. They are tucked safely inside the Dome that protects their healthy, superior bodies. Yet Partridge, whose father is one of the most influential men in the Dome, feels isolated and lonely. So when a slipped phrase suggests his mother might still be alive, Partridge risks his life to leave the Dome to find her.
