This is something I haven’t done in a very long while, welcome to WWW- Wednesday! Where I answer three questions. What is the last book I finished reading? What book am I currently reading? and What book do I think I will be reading next?
Last book I finished reading:
The Innocence Treatment by Ari Goelman
You may believe the government protects you, but only one girl knows how they use you.
Lauren has a disorder that makes her believe everything her friends tell her—and she believes everyone is her friend. Her innocence puts her at constant risk, so when she gets the opportunity to have an operation to correct her condition, she seizes it. But after the surgery, Lauren is changed. Is she a paranoid lunatic with violent tendencies? Or a clear-eyed observer of the world who does what needs to be done?
Told in journal entries and therapy session transcripts, The Innocence Treatment is a collection of Lauren’s papers, annotated by her sister long after the events of the novel. A compelling YA debut thriller that is part speculative fiction and part shocking tell-all of genetic engineering and government secrets, Lauren’s story is ultimately an electrifying, propulsive, and spine-tingling read.
Read my review here! This book was so compelling and I loved it!
Mick & Michelle by Nina Rossing
Fifteen-year-old Mick Mullins has a great life: his parents are sweet, his sister is tolerable, and his friendships are solid. But as summer descends on Queens, he prepares to turn his carefree existence upside down by disclosing a secret he has kept long enough. It’s time to work up the courage to reveal that he is not a boy, but a girl—and that her name is Michelle. Having always been the perfect, good boy, Michelle is terrified that the complicated truth will disappoint, hurt, or push away the people closest to her. She can’t continue hiding for much longer, though, because her body is turning into that of a man’s, and she is desperate to stop the development—desperate enough to consider self-medicating with hormones.
Most of all, Michelle fears that Grandpa, who is in a nursing home after a near fatal stroke, won’t survive the shock if he finds out that his favorite grandchild, and the only boy, is a girl. If she kills her beloved Grandpa by leaving Mick behind, she isn’t sure embracing her real identity will be worth the loss.
I am not sure how to feel about this book yet and I am hoping to get a better feel for it by the end, but I’m almost afraid of not rating it properly due to being unsure of the representation.
What I hope to read next:
Sienna McKnight by R.K. Syrus
Her war, her rules.
The heroine no one expected in a sci-fi technothriller you won’t want to put down.
A YEAR AGO Sienna McKnight, fresh out of West Point Military Academy, led her Special Ops team through a frozen hell at the bottom of the world to bring back something they wanted.
TODAY, March 19, she is on her way back to the Gulf of Oman and its hostile shores to challenge her own destiny.
TOMORROW, March 20, Sienna will fall. She will rise again. She will be reborn. She will become the heroine no one expected.
I am very intrigued by this superhero origen story of sorts. I really don’t know what to expect with this one, but I’m excited to see where it goes!
