  23. December 15, 2011 at 2:26 am

    I’ve never done “waiting for wednesday” (is it a book you just got most recently?) but the book I just bought this Wednesday is Soul Screamers omnibus by Rachel Vincent. However I recognize Article 5 because it keeps popping up as a recommended read in my goodreads but it’s not out yet so I’m waiting! Very excited to read it:)

    So Far Away by Meg Mitchell Moore sounds fascinating.

    Currently writing a present-day dystopian short story so I won’t start reading any novels until that is finished. However, the Ender Companion looks like a must-have in my Science Fiction library. Love Ender and am still reading the series, I’m kind of a late adopter.

    I’ll be sure to add Article 5 to my wishlist.

    Article 5 looks so good! My Waiting on Wednesday pick is TOUCH OF POWER by Maria V. Snyder.

  28. December 16, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    Sounds like a great book, I love dystopian. My waiting for Wednesday pick is The Clockwork Prince.

  29. December 16, 2011 at 3:14 pm

    I’m so excited about this book! I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for its release! My Wednesday pick.. Hmm.. There are so many! I’ll go with The Immortal Rules. But really, there aren’t many books I don’t love. Books fulfill all the senses! Thanks for the opportunity!

    Never have done a WoW pick before. But Article 5 definitely has my attention! I’m waiting for Clockwork Prince to come out in softcover before ordering it. I have the 1st series and the first book in the clockwork set. Anxiously awaiting more!

    I really wanted to like “Article 5” but it just didn’t live up to the hype (or even the description!) It was an okay read, but that’s it…just okay.

    First of all, I felt as if I had read this book before. Totalitarian society, complete with militia? Handmaid’s Tale, the Hunger Games, even 1984 (if you replace the militia with thought police) have that. Reform schools for teens? Declaration is one of many books that comes to mind. A resistance and underground railroad of sorts? Sounds like When She Woke or dozens of other dystopias. There was literally nothing unique in this story and the world just wasn’t developed enough for me not to feel like it was a retread. My major issue was that the main character, Ember, was completely unlikable and in fact, rather naive and, well frankly, stupid.

    I’m sure I’ll read the next book, primarily because I’m very interested in finding out more of the backstory on the war and the destruction of much of the United States. There was very little of that in Article 5 and I think just a little bit more context would have helped the book.

    I’ve had my eye on Article 5 for a while now.
