SNEAK PEEK: Atlantia  SAMPLE - Ally Condie 3.5/4 Stars

"The pillow is wet from my tears. Perhaps I should try to catch them in a bowl and give them to the priests to use for those who decide to spend their lives down here in the dark Below. We'll all weep and bless each other, those of us too scared or too stupid or too late to try a life Above."

I'm conflicted between 3.5 stars and 4 stars...

I found the first chapter to be way too descriptive and at times very hard to follow. Because of this I wasn't sure if I would actually be interested in reading the full book, but once I got halfway through chapter 2 and onto chapter 3 I knew for sure I would read the full thing. Atlantia really starts to pick up halfway through chapter 2, and we are introduced to two (what I predict to be) very interesting characters. I just hope that Atlantia keeps up with the well created plot that has formulated so far and doesn't fall flat.

Also, I noticed that this is labelled as a dystopian novel on Goodreads (which makes sense) but this genre has never really worked out for me. This may finally be the book that gets me to love dystopian books! Overall, Atlantia seems like a promising read! I'm very excited and impatient about it being released in October because now I can't wait to read and find out what happens next!
