4 posts | 14 read | 3 to read
Megan McCaffertys Bumped series of books are must-read teen dystopian fiction, along with Ally Condies Matched series and Veronica Roths Divergent trilogy.Thumped, the sequel to Bumped, manages to be satiric, scary, and romantic at the same time. It continues the story of separated-at-birth twins, Melody and Harmony, girls as engaging as McCaffertys Jessica Darling. These sisters are the most popular teen girls on the planet. To their fans, they seem to be living ideal lives. Harmony is married to Ram and living in Goodside, the religious community that once meant everything to her. Melody has the genetically flawless Jondoe as her coupling partner, which means money and statusand a bright future.But both girls are hiding secrets. And they are each pining for the only guys they cant have. The biggest risk of all could be to finally tell the truth.

Decided to focus on my 2022 #Roll100 list over the past week, and I‘m slowly getting through them. I‘m currently at 41/100, and hoping I can make it to 50 by the end of the year. There‘s a few stacks I need to reassess, and I‘m feeling a little ruthless so maybe I can tear through them and unshelf some. Trying to start off the new year right! 🤞🏻

PuddleJumper That's amazing! I am sure you can get to 50! 2mo

The second half of this duology was a quick read that I definitely found more satisfying than the first. The young people showed a lot more rebellion & self determination in this one, & it ended on a positive note. This series made me think about Atwood‘s quote that she never included anything in her books that hadn‘t happened to somebody somewhere. This was all presented in a fantastical way that seemed kinda over the top, but the messages ⬇️

IndoorDame about the surrogacy industry & how exploitive it is to young women, especially in poorer countries can‘t be ignored. #PopSugar2022ADuology #Booked2022NewIn2022 7mo

Bumped and it‘s sequel Thumped are the lesser-known dystopian duology from Megan McCafferty (The Jessica Darling series). In this story, a virus had made everyone over 18 infertile, so adults hire teen girls to get pregnant and carry their adoptive children. There‘s a lot here to unpack about reproductive rights, teenage independence & identity, and social media. I read these a few years ago, but they‘ve definitely stuck with me.

After reading bumped I needed to know what happened next! This one was just as fun and fast paced and kooky as the first one, I loved the writing style it was great .. If you'd like to read my full review please check out my blog! Link in my bio!
