Set in the not-too-distant future, society looks very similar to today. Unsurprisingly, people are more dependent on their cell phones than ever, especially on an app called Lux, which analyzes every situation for you and tells you the optimal choice for every question - what to eat, where to shop, when to leave for an appointment. When Rory gets accepted to the most prestigious high school in the country, she's thrilled, especially when she ⬇️

TheAromaofBooks finds out that her mother (who died when Rory was born) also attended the same school. Things take a darker twist, though, as Rory begins to discover things about the school, a secret society, and (of course) Lux. While some aspects of this story were predictable YA/scifi/dystopian kind of stuff, overall I really loved the concept of a society that has done its best to quash that quiet voice in our heads & replace it with 100% rational choices ⬇ 2w
TheAromaofBooks thanks to technology. This book felt like it could easily have strayed too far into religious territory, but kept the balance well. Overall a fun read for its genre.

Yoshi-and-a-book How do you sign up for these or find them? 2w
Readage @Yoshi-and-a-book All the challenges here are floating around on Litsy. They all have their own hashtags and can be located in the search function via hashtag. You don't have to sign up for most of these, you just find one you'd like to try and join in. Find the original post, take a screenshot and post on your profile. The only ones I "signed up" for are the #LitsyAtoZ and #NWC #NovelWatchingCrew (which I also found on Litsy and joined the group) 2w

So I‘ve seen this movie almost nonstop when I was younger... loved reading the book and listening to the audio book. I plan on renting the movie soon :) — it‘s time for a rewatch :)

I can't believe that the carry-over character from the first book was the person who drove me the most crazy! The actual story & action in this book was great fun, but listening to pages of pompous prosing by the great Dr. Ian Malcolm really dragged down the pace. Some of what he said was important to the story, but a lot of it felt like padding. Would people really sit around & listen to multi-page lectures when they could be DINOSAUR WATCHING?!

TheAromaofBooks @Bookwormjillk - It just seemed unlikely that people, including two children, would rather sit in a dark trailer listening to him prose on about various scientific theories about extinction instead of being out watching real, live, honest-to-goodness DINOSAURS! 🙄 3w
