Dystopian February Week 1 Recap

Short week to start us off, but a recap all the same!

This week in reviews (click on book's name to read review):

NOTE: In a policy change, I'm giving each book I review a merit badge in one of the following categories: World-building, Action, Romance, Twisty Reads, and Great Writing (see the merit badges here - they are ADORBS! and read more about the philosophy behind the merit badges here) so if you know you prefer world-building books over all else, you'll know which titles to look out for.

The quiz is super hard I hear! It helps to have read the book already.
