#4.10: Read 25 New Books, #6.5: Read BuzzFeed's 21 Best YA Books of 2013 – Perfect Ruin

I'm applying to colleges again (much excite, very stress), and everything that comes with college admissions is taking up a lot of my time. There are a lot of feelings going on, but I'll spare you an angsty sob story.

That being said, though, all these things I'm dealing with has prevented me from reading as frequently as I would have liked to. It took me over two weeks to finish this book, which is a shame, because it was really well written, and the plot was exciting, and it was just immensely entertaining overall.

It was a sci-fi book (is that the right genre?), though, so at first I didn't think I would like it. I actually had no idea what it was about when I picked it up at the library, and I didn't read the summary before starting it; I just knew that it was on my list and that I needed to read it.

Look at how artistic these purposely shitty photos are

"Morgan Stockhour knows getting too close to the edge of Internment, the floating city in the clouds where she lives, can lead to madness. Even though her older brother, Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. If she ever wonders about the ground, and why it is forbidden, she takes solace in her best friend, Pen, and in Basil, the boy she's engaged to marry.

Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers swirling and fear on the wind, Morgan can no longer stop herself from investigating, especially once she meets Judas. Betrothed to the victim, he is the boy being blamed for the murder, but Morgan is convinced of his innocence. Secrets lay at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what she will find – or whom she will lose."

The only issue I have is that it had SUCH a cliffhanger ending. I mean, it'd be fine if I could just go straight to the next book, but I have to wait UNTIL MARCH, 2015. NEXT YEAR. But nevertheless, I definitely plan to read it when it comes out.

Thanks for reading, no one!
