Friday's Featured Freebie: The Woodlands by Lauren Nicolle Taylor

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have a three-day weekend like me to catch up on your reading, sleep and whatever else tickles your fancy. I am hoping to do some secondhand book shopping, some blogging and a lot a reading. Right now, I am reading book 4 of the Underland Chronicles by Suzanne Collins. I must be enjoying it because I sent my boyfriend on a late night run earlier this week to get book 3.  I also borrow the DVD, City of Bones, from Melissa. I am really excited to see how it compares to the book. But, back to the important stuff and probably why you stopped by. This week, I found this pretty interesting book for free on Amazon and B&N. I would say if you like YA distopias, then this is something you should be downloading right now.

The Woodlands (The Woodlands #1)
by Lauren Nicolle Taylor
Free on Amazon and B&N

When being unique puts you in danger and speaking your mind can be punishable by death, you might find yourself fighting to survive. Sixteen-year-old Rosa lives in one of the eight enclosed cities of The Woodlands. Where the lone survivors of a devastating race war have settled in the Russian wilderness because it’s the only scrap of land left habitable on the planet. In these circular cities, everyone must abide by the law or face harsh punishment. Rosa's inability to conform and obey the rules brands her a leper and no one wants to be within two feet of her, until she meets Joseph. He's blonde, fair-skinned, green-eyed, and the laid-back complete opposite of Rosa. She's never met anyone quite like him, and she knows that spells danger.

But differences weren't always a bad thing. People used to think being unique was one of the most treasured of traits to have. Now, the Superiors, who ruthlessly control the concrete cities with an iron fist, are obsessed with creating a 'raceless' race. They are convinced this is the only way to avoid another war. Any anomalies must be destroyed.

The Superiors are unstoppable and can do anything they want. After all, they are considered superheroes by the general public. But not everyone sees them this way. When they continue to abuse their power by collecting young girls for use in their secret, high-tech breeding program, they have no idea that one of those girls has somehow managed to make friends even she didn't know she had. And one man will stop at nothing to save her. - Goodreads
