Review: After The End by Amy Plum



After the End by Amy Plum
Synopsis via Goodreads: She’s searching for answers to her past. They’re hunting her to save their future.World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They've survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there.
At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life.
When Juneau returns from a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war. Cities were never destroyed. The world is intact. Everything was a lie.
Now Juneau is adrift in a modern-day world she never knew existed. But while she's trying to find a way to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past.
   
     I read this book when it first came out last year, and with a sequel coming really soon I found it was a good time to do a review. I read this book in one sitting because it kept me glued to the pages.

     This book takes place in Alaska, where a young girl named Juneau has spent her whole life lI ving in her small community. World War III has left what was the world in ruins except for her camp and the survivors within it. How did they survive? They were one with nature. Well at least this is what Juneau thought. It was what she had been told her whole life.

     She finds out otherwise when she returns home from a hunting trip to find her entire clan is gone. When she sets out to find them using her powers of nature she finds out they have been lying to her her whole life. But she doesn't have time to think about that. Her clans kidnappers are after her and she doesn't know why. Being chased down wherever she tries to hide, Juneau finds herself teaming up with an unlikely friend named Miles.

     The thing about this book is: you either like it or you hate it. It's concept is so interesting and it is really action packed. I have to say I was turning the pages so quickly I'm surprised I didn't have any paper cuts. I loved it because at first it's a dystopian novel, then it turns into a survival road trip in present time. It was so unique and I loved the writing.

    The best thing about this book was that the romance didn't take over the plot. It was perfect. Miles and Juneua made me laugh and want to strangle them. But oh did I love it! They are so different. She is a survivalist who doesn't even know what cellphones are. He is the guy who got kicked out of high school. She thinks he's crazy. He thinks she's crazy.

     I will say that the last half of the book had so much action I thought my heart was going to pound out of my chest! I literally cannot wait for the sequel in May because the ending was gahhhh!! I recommend this book to EVERYONE!

     When I was first asked to do this post, I had a completely different theme planned. But in light of recent events that have happened in my personal life, I knew the only thing that seemed relevant was Friendship. If I could have a Loot Crate with anything I ever wanted inside, friendship seems like the perfect theme.

My 2018 in Books So Far...

Hello booklovers! I decided that a wrap up of what I have read in 2018 so far would be a great way to jump back into my blog! This year started out as amazing reading year for me already. While towards the end of February I did start to dwindle off some with reading, I am still happy with what I have accomplished so far! So without further ado...


JANUARY #1- Through the Woods by Emily Carroll

I started off 2018 with some Graphic Novels. This one was so interesting and unique. Some of the stories gave me chills! I couldn't stop reading. IT was just the right amount of creepy and beautiful. The art was so amazing and I absolutely loved the color schemes.

The musical, Hamilton, has been my favorite thing for over a year now. I have been utterly obsessed and I even give it credit for me passing my AP History exam. Considering all this, I thought it was about time I do the Hamilton Book Tag! This tag was created by Maureen Keavy.  Also, if you haven't listened to Hamilton yet, One, What are you even doing wit your life? Two, Go listen!

1. The Room Where It Happens: A book world you would put yourself into


     The first answer that came to my head was Harry Potter, obviously. But, if I'm trying to be unique I would have to say the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, more specifically, The Night Court, for obvious reasons.

2. The Schuyler Sisters: An Underrated Female Character


     Seriously why are all my answers automatically Harry Potter? I recently binge watched all the Harry Potter movies over Winter Break with my sister, so maybe that is why. Its no secret that Luna Lovegood is one of my favorite characters from the series…
