Really enjoyed this YA book - a quick read for adults but a fun one! While I guess you'd call it fantasy, it's definitely not a typical fantasy setting (nor in the slightest like the author's other fantasy books). Set in a slightly future world where the water level has inexplicably risen but where almost everyone is unable to really notice or think about this fact, it follows a teen called Lori who is now the sole guardian and supporter of her younger brother Ben. Lori makes a living in an unus ...more
I'm not really sure what it was, but I just could not get into this book. I liked the characters, but for some reason I struggled trying to get into this story. I made a new rule this year, that if I couldn't get into a book after having it for a week, then I needed to stop reading it and move on to another book.
I had a lot of fun reading this - great story, great cast.
This was a little like Miss Peregrine meets Maze Runner meets X-Men meets Beowulf. Unique enough to keep my interest, but sometimes jumpy and a tad bit confusing with some jumping back and forth.

Rating: 1/5 DNF
Note: Special thanks to Simon & Schuster for providing a digital copy for review.
What. A. Hot. Mess. This was sadly a DNF for me because I just couldn’t bring myself to care about what happens in the end, and the thing is, I tried very very hard to finish this because I was already so far into the book. I think that says a lot about how frustrated I was with Feeder.
Let’s discuss the good because this book wasn’t all bad. Feeder is a fast-paced YA Science Fi ...more
The main thing I'm feeling about this book is one of confusion. I don't think I understood 20% of what was being said, or trying to be said, or trying to be done.... I just don't know. After finishing the book, I got the main gist of it, but I'm still somewhat baffled when I try to think about the "why's" of the plot's detail. It almost felt like I was reading the second book of a series as we are plunked down with the main character Lori, who is already hunting feeders, in a world where the wat ...more
