There is no “perfect” cure.

Jacqui still remembers what it was like before the honeybee virus destroyed her world. Before children turned into beasts and men desperate for power became raiders. Before she had to disguise herself as a boy. And before her brother, Dean, left and enver came back.

Jacqui asks Fiona and Jonah Tarsis to help find Dean, since he disappeared while leading their mother to safety. They immediately agree, and together they all quickly set out—along with Fiona’s boyfriend, Bowen—in search of their loved ones. But Jacqui soon discovers that they’ve kept a very dangerous secret from her: they have the cure.

The cure that could save those infected with the virus. If they can keep it safe.

With their survival hanging in the balance, Jacqui and her friends must restore their families, preserve the cure, and fight for the chance to rebuild their shattered world.

Top Ten Books On My Spring 2019 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

I can't plan ahead very well so finding books for this list was harder than it should have been. Normally I choose what I read based on what feels right, what I want at that moment. I don't put too much pressure on myself, but this is a list of books I have in mind to read, and also the ARCs I will hopefully be receiving soon.

{Re-Read Review} Stung by Bethany Wiggins

There is no cure for being stung. Fiona doesn’t remember going to sleep. But when she awakens, her world no longer exists. Her house is abandoned and broken. Her neighborhood is barren and dead. And there is a tattoo on her right hand. A tattoo Fiona doesn’t remember getting…but somehow she must conceal at any cost. Because humanity has been divided. Those bearing the tattoo have turned into mindless, violent beasts that roam the streets and sewers, preying upon the unbranded, while a select few live protected inside a fortresslike wall, their lives devoted to rebuilding society and killing all who bear the mark. And Fiona has awoken branded, on the wrong side of the wall, and…normal. From the author of Shifting comes this remarkable reimagining of Sleeping Beauty, where the sting of a bee, rather than the prick of a needle, can destroy the world.

Poison Study TV Show Fancast

Since I finally wrote and posted a review of Poison Study, I figured I should take it one step further: I should do a fancast for the movie or tv show adaptation that will never be, but that the story deserves.

Before we start, let me just refresh your memory on what I'm talking about and, if you live under a rock and haven't read this amazing series, introduce you to:

60510 1265703 1966969 16130759 16130760

Boom.

Yes, the covers are the tiniest bit cringey, but we're working with it. Anyway.

Let's begin.
