December Book of the Month - UGLIES

So thanks to Jenners I read more books in 2009 than I ever had. I didn't blog about all of them, but I did blog about most of them.

You should know that I'm a very sLLLLLLLLLoooooooooWWWWWW reader. I have to be really into the book to not have to renew it at least once from the library.

This book: Uglies by Scott Westerfeld is the first in a series of four. It takes place in the future and based on scientific research about what people find attractive at the age of 16 everyone gets made over.

The perfect face, the perfect body, the perfect everything.

But some are rebelling. Some want to remain "ugly".

This book challenges preconceived ideas of beauty and for that alone it is worth the read.

Hoping to finish the next in the series, fittingly entitled Pretties, by the end of January.

Like I said.....I read sssssllllllllloooooooooowwwwwww.
