I completed this small challenge this past weekend. It was a great introduction to Westerfeld’s works and I look forward to finishing out the series and maybe even checking out his others book.
1. Uglies – finished JUNE 9
2. Pretties – finished NOV 14
Author: Scott Westerfeld
Finished: November 14, 2009
The second book of the Uglies series, this one was very interesting as it once again incorporated many aspects of the world, focusing more on the “pretties” before coming full circle.
Tally is now a pretty, forced to make a life changing choice for the sake of her old friends. Now with a whole new perspective, Tally is finding herself not quite what she thought a pretty would be, and even her best friend Shay is starting to notice.
Paranoid that she’s being stalked by Specials, Tally takes risk after risk and is confronted by the past. Too curious to resist, Tally and the Crims leader Zane, follow the path of clues to find that they may be saved afterall.
It was very interesting, the new characters were intriguing and brought more to the story than before, plus the reunion of other characters. I can only imagine what the next book , Specials, will entail.

It’s Monday! What are you reading this week? is a weekly event to list the books completed last week, the books currently being reading, and the books to be finish this week.
Well, not a hugely productive week but I decided to start the three chunksters I’ve had waiting around in hopes that maybe I can get them all read by December 20th (in addition to the shorter books). I’m really going to have to up my reading in order to make it. But hopefully I will be able to participate in the read-a-thon happening on the 5th of December since I was unable to join in Dewey’s Read-a-Thon.
