After Reading: Peeps by Scott Westerfeld
Have I mentioned that I'm a giant Westerfeld fangirl? No? Because that does bear repeating. I have really enjoyed all of his books I've picked up so far, and Peeps was no exception. I've recently been looking for more male narrated older YA (suggestions anyone?) to compare with my forthcoming release (The Chemistry of Fate is told in part by Tom, a college freshman). Anyhow, this fits the bill for New Adult, male MC, and all kinds of fun. The only thing that kind of left me hanging was that most of the book feels like one big prologue. Like, we end knowing that the end of days is coming, but we don't get to see it. I know The Last Days fills in that next part, but still. Anyhow, overall I loved the voice in this, the world is lots of fun, and I adored the chapters on the parasites (scientist nerd here, in case you haven't noticed). Anyhow, definitely a fun one to snag if you get a chance, and it's a quick, fast paced read too!
