So, desperate for something new to read, something just as can't-put-it-down as the Twilight series (or as close to it as any other book can get), I of course went to the library. And by that I mean my sister, Amy. She had told me about this series, Uglies, a long time ago.
In fact, she was so sure I'd like it she gave it to me, and it sat on my bookshelf for at least six months, collecting dust. This was during my Twilight-only phase, so I was less than interested. I eventually gave it back. Three months later, I asked to borrow it again. I kept hearing about it and was intrigued. I just finished the first book in the series, and couldn't wait to get my hands on the second one. I just got it tonight (thanks, Amy) and am headed to go read as soon as I finish this post.
If you like futuristic sci-fi, which I DO oddly enough, you will love this series. (And don't read the word sci-fi and immediately think aliens like I always do.) Many of you may have already read it, I'm usually a little late in the game when it comes to stuff like this, but if you haven't, I highly recommend it. It. Is. Fascinating. I couldn't put it down, and when I wasn't reading it I was thinking about it, non-stop. It's one of those books that makes you think, and think, and think.
There's a fourth book in the series, which Amy said she will never read because I guess it was an afterthought, after the series wrapped up with number 3. I understand that (like, say, Twilight could have ended after Eclipse, IMO) but I can't see myself not reading a book in a series that I love. I think I may have to read it, although Amy probably doesn't own it.
So...have you read this series? Did you love it? Did you read the fourth book?
