I actually read Contagion during #SundayYAthon, and it stood out as the best of a great bunch of books.

I found that I was a little confused as the story started, but this is completely understandable when you discover more about Callie. This is a sci-fi/dystopia that I had to suspend disbelief for a little, but I ended up completely lost in the story and the characters,

This book had me feeling a roller-coaster of emotions - from fear to happiness to anger to love, and everything in between. It was quite an exhilarating read and a bit of a tour of the North of Britain, and it was nice to see some familiar places described.

Teri Terry's female characters are some of my favourite ever. They always push themselves and are so inspiring to read. And they always make me want to run (I can't run).

Part of me wishes that I hadn't read this until nearer the publication of book two, because THAT ENDING. I read 95% of this book in one sitting, then I put it down and read something else for two days because I didn't want it to end. Because I knew from the author's previous books that there would be a huge cliffhanger.

  1. Eek, I have an eARC of this to read and you've just made me more excited for it. I love a good dystopian novel so this sounds right up my street! Great review :)
