Seriously, they are the future. Like apocalyptica the future (if that makes any sense) is what I mean. It seems like lately most of the books that I’ve been reading have to do with a country (i.e. the United States) in the future, as another kind of world or government, different from the U.S.A. that we know today. An example of books like this is “Delirium” by Lauren Oliver. I don’t know how to explain it without giving away too much, but its agreat book and the second book of the series just came out a few months ago! Another example is the amazing “The Hunger Games” trilogy by Suzanne Collins (if you haven’t read it yet, what are you waiting for?! No seriously, go read it now). This book speaks for itself. The fashion, the politics and the technology may seem otherworldy and ridiculous to us now, but in a few years, it could become a reality-our reality. As a final example of these books, there is “Matched” by Ally Condie. I’m not done reading this book yet, but what I have read of it so far was enough to get me thinking about the future. All the things that happen in these books may seem crazy and unlikely but it can happen when we least expect, and just the thought of it is kinda scary. Just think of all the things we have today that people did not even dream about 30, 20, even 10 years ago (to get a better idea about this, read “The Future of Us” by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler!) If you haven’t read one or any of these books, I hope this inspires you enough to add them to your summer reading list. And I would love any suggestions to add to my own list! So that is my wrinkle of the day! Get reading.
