"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Holiday Gift Guide: Dystopia

I'm doing something new this holiday season; I wanted to give book recommendations that would make good gifts!  So I'm going to pick themes  and list books that I think are the best of the best, making great gifts to the book lovers in your life!  I will preface this by stating most of my recommendations will be YA, so keep that in mind!
Books to Buy for the Dystopia Book Lover! 

Dystopians are all over the YA sphere!  And why not?  You can set a dystopia anywhere with anything!  I love them for that quality and I think they are some of the best books on the market right now.  Below I've listed some of the ones that are popular already or are a little less well-known, but either way are must-reads for the dystopia lover!

The Pledge by Kimberly Derting - Charlie is the key to something much bigger.
Enclave by Ann Aguirre - Welcome to the apocalypse.

Unwind by Neal Shusterman - Connor, Risa, and Lev are running for their lives.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer - No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . . 
Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien - Her choice is simple: enter the world of the Enclave to rescue her parents, or die trying.

Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi -  In this world oil is scarce, but loyalty is scarcer.
