Did you post about the book on here? Because I don't remember seeing a post by anyone about this book. I too, may have Dawn's memory problems

I notice that in The 5th Wave review I mention that I heard about it on this forum.

Here's a thread someone started about it which is probably where I read about it and decided to read it, but a short thread: https://www.city-data.com/forum/books...l#post29619919

I didn't even read the book that you're talking about! I'm not reading ANY book right now! How did I get in the middle of this? (Love you guys! )

Thanks. And the other thing that isn't really clear to me is why it's marketed as a YA book. I don't see how it is different from books for adults.

I don't know why you're in the middle of this, but let's keep it going, okay?

It's because you are always in the middle of it.

I agree. Maybe because kids today are so much more immune to things than those of us in our 30s and older. ????

LFM and Upthere, you are so funny. Und is definitely the perfect name to go with Ove, well that or Betwee. However neither of them looked like an Ove so their names are.........Toby and Simba. They are stinkers but cute as all get out which is a good thing as cuteness actually saved their lives! Last evening they knocked over a very expensive lamp and their cuteness was a lifesaver. Thank goodness only the table was gouged and the lamp survived.

I can relate to that scenario. I have had Wool sitting on my Kindle forever but I keep going onto something else. I did see that there were other Nina books so when I need something when my brain is too drained to choose I have a backup.

I love that you are in the middle of this and I think you should stay in it. It's always fun to have you included in conversations.
