CONTEST: Pure By: Julianna Baggott

Hiya, my lovely readers. School started a few weeks ago so I've been crazy busy with that. I haven't been able to find time to read for fun at all D: But I am taking a lit class about Western European and Russian Literature from the 17th-19th Century, and I've never done ANYTHING with those kinds of stories so I really like it ^^ So far we've read Tartuffe and Candide and I've enjoyed both. We're reading Faust now, which I like, but it's hard to concentrate because I keep having Black Butler and Ao No Exorcist flashbacks. Well....I'm getting WAY off topic.....

Anywho, to kind of make it up to you guys I have a contest for y'all :3 Enjoy!!

Title: Pure
Author: Julianna Baggott

Summary: PURE focuses on Pressia, a scrappy, brilliant, and tough-as-nails teenage girl fighting for survival in a city destroyed by “the detonations.” Her world is one populated by mangled survivors, known simply as Wretches. Pressia’s life, like that of all Wretches, is dictated by the Pures, an aristocracy unharmed by the denotations. To remain untainted, Pures never step out of the Dome that protects them. But what happens when an unsatisfied young man escapes from the Dome and into Pressia’s world?

  1. If I could create a utopia, the weather would always be above 70 degrees. It would have a clear blue sky and clear warm waters. Everyone would just hang at the beach all the time and make all of their own essentials. Kind of like the book The Beach.

  2. If I were to create a utopia, as a concept for a book, it would be that everyone would be trapped inside. No one would be allowed in, or out, as it would taint the city. The population would become the same people, made from the same family, like in-breeding.

  5. Hmmmm... I like Isa's... but I would also make C-pop and K-pop... and heck, all of my favorite msic a part of daily life... like everybody has a theme song XD and more than just beef to eat.. buffets of freshly made food 24-7 !!!! but I like the idea of riding camels everywhere... idk why.. camels on land unless you're going very far.... and then dolphins on sea!!! woohoo!! happy all the time with food and animlas and music and only the people I like XD haha.


  6. Can I be sappy and say that my ideal utopia would be a place where there is world peace and no war? :) No discrimination and we can all live side by side beside our unique differences. And of course, we'd all go green. :D Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. Western European and Russian Literature from the 17th-19th Century literature, the most interesting period. The authors wrote about life!

  8. I'm excited to read a copy of this book as I've always been interested in dystopias. I also read a recent interview of the author and really liked her from what I read, so I can't wait to pick this up. It had a beautiful cover design, too!

    1. Agreed. I think the cover is also gorgeous. Hope you were able to read it! :)


Comment! I want to hear what you have to say =D
