Wishlist Wednesday (9)


Love is...

gothling: hopeless, pointless, merciless, lame

bliss4u: no, love is...i dunno...loverly

Ms.T: it's obvious. love is all about trust.

BoBoy: well, i'm lovin this pizza. yum

chessman: i'm thinking that was the wrong answer, bro...

Big.J: some people need some schooling around here

For two happy couples, love is true.
For two cynical friends, love is a game...that is not always fair.
When a wager puts love to the test, will there really be a winner?


Feed by M. T. Anderson

For Titus and his friends, it started out like any ordinary trip to the moon - a chance to party during spring break and play around with some stupid low-grav at the Ricochet Lounge. But that was before the crazy hacker caused all their feeds to malfunction, sending them to the hospital to lie around with nothing inside their heads for days. And it was before Titus met Violet, a beautiful, brainy teenage girl who knows something about what it’s like to live without the feed-and about resisting its omnipresent ability to categorize human thoughts and desires.

Following in the footsteps of George Orwell, Anthony Burgess, and Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., M. T. Anderson has created a brave new world - and a hilarious new lingo - sure to appeal to anyone who appreciates smart satire, futuristic fiction laced with humor, or any story featuring skin lesions as a fashion statement.

Identity crises, consumerism, and star-crossed teenage love in a futuristic society where people connect to the Internet via feeds implanted in their brains.

  1. Both those books sound really good! I've actually been wanting to read Feed for ages, but never got around to it. I should though... Great picks! :)

  2. Feed is great! I was just discussing it with my book club last night.

  3. I am definitely excited to get my hands on Feed. I have heard some good things about it, and it sounds awesome! I just got it from the library, so I am hoping to read it soon!! :)



Don't be shy! We love to hear from you!
