Hey Everyone!
« on: March 18, 2014, 06:03:48 PM »

Just thought I'd make myself known, so decided to make a new topic so I can have lots of attention and feel good about myself.
Not really, but still, hello all!

FUN FACT

I used to have bronchitis.

Hello! May I ask which of Scott's books you've read?

Hello! May I ask which of Scott's books you've read?

Erm, the Leviathan series are the only ones so far, but who knows what my future holds, I'm always open to suggestions!

And yeah, bronchitis really is decidedly average.

Uglies for sure.
Midnighters is a good one to follow that up with...then POSSIBLY Peeps and the New York trilogy, but those aren't really required reading.
If you've read Leviathan your covered.

I know, I know. The pains of the not-quite 1% right?
I  have a few others but I'll leave you to what I suggested instead...

Not to start a fight, but I would definitely recommend Peeps and Last Days before Uglies. Uglies is good, but I liked those much better. What's not to like about disgusting parasites and the end of the world?
