I finally read a book that got me out of my reading slump!

Wither by Lauren Destefano!

GoodReads Summary:
Obviously, something went terribly wrong. Genetic mutations have festered, reducing human longevity to twenty-five, even less for most women. To prevent extinction, young girls are kidnapped, mated in polygamous marriages with men eager to procreate. Sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery, a recent victim of this breeding farm mentality, has vowed to break loose from its fetters; but finding allies and a safe way out is a challenge she can only hope she will survive. A dystopian fantasy series starter with wings.

Wow. For a YA novel ( I'm still a new YA reader) This book totally grasped my attention. I fell in love with the cover art and ordered it into the library as soon as I could. I got totally lost in it and just powered through the whole book. I absolutely loved the mansion setting. I felt like I could totally picture the wives floor and could feel the intensity of how the sister wives felt so trapped. I loved the moments they interacted with each other and absolutely loved how Gabriel ( although we didn't hear from him enough) and Rhine's relationship just happened. It didn't feel forced at all, it just seemed natural.

I simply cannot wait for book 2. I hope its still exciting and we see the characters of Rhine and Gabriel develop more now that they are outside the prison that was the mansion. I hope Vaughn's experiments become known to all and he dies a miserable death! I also hope Bowen and Cecily make it out of there alive!

Nothing like a little dystopian fantasy to relight my reading fire! I hear it's supposed to rain here for a while again which is great because I have so much reading to catch up on. Today is overcast and the air is refreshing so I am going to go for a nice walk while I can :)
