The Giver

I chose The Giver for my first ever review on my blog because it is my all time favorite book. This book had only been out two years when I decided to read it in middle school. I was the same age as Jonas when I read it so it was very relatable to me. 

Reading the giver was mind blowing to me at the time, because it was the first time I had read a book that was not set in everyday life as I knew it. Jonas came from a very different world from me with very different rules. It sucked me in from the Ceremony of Twelve and I was hooked. 

I loved the journey Lois Lowery took me on learning about this what seems at first to be a utopian society and quickly turns dystopian.  

I loved this book so much that dystopian novels were and still are my all time favorite genre of book. I recently re-read it as an adult and still love it just as much as I did the first time I read it.

I recommend this book to anyone and everyone, unless you are afraid to open your mind or just don’t like MG books to begin with.
