Recently I have been obsessed with dystopian books and in my hunt for more hunger games and divergent, I came across this series. This series is perfect for dystopian lovers, it has everything we could ask for. A bad government, a ‘chosen few’, deadly challenges to prove yourself and of course a love story!
This is a page turner, a quick read and has many many twists! I devoured this book in two days! I couldn’t put it down. I even took my kindle to work with me and read whenever I got the time, even if it was just 15 minutes. That’s how much fun this book is.
My only issue with the book is that I couldn’t relate to any character. I love Cia and Tomas but I couldn’t connect with them. Yet, that doesn’t make this a bad book. Dystopian lovers should definitely read this one!

True to the first book, Independent Study grabbed my attention from the first page. The story continues with Cia being selected as a university student after successfully completing the testing. The story was good, interesting and fast paced and this one was devoured within two days as well.
But my issue with the characters continued into this one as well. Cia was too smart, she figured out every problem too quickly – she is just too good to be true! Having said that, the book is worth a read and you won’t regret reading it!

This is the last book in the series. This is also the book that opened up too many loopholes that couldn’t be ignored. Some of the children once selected for the testing were never heard from and no one questioned it? WHY? Too much was happening in this book and it was evident that the author was trying to end the series. And the ending? Oh, my god! That just left me angry and confused! Why would anyone do that to a reader! I finished the entire series to get to the end and you leave me hanging?
BUT, I did read the whole book. With all its problems, Graduation Day is equally fast-paced and a quick read. This book was done within two days as well.
