So for the first 3 days of BookTubeAThon I read the Shatter Me trilogy. Like many other books I read during BTAT, my impression was pretty meh.

Article Three by Anna Jakobsson Lund | Published: Dec 2016, originally published in Swedish in March 2015
My rating: 5/5 stars | Genre: Young Adult, Dystopia
Wow. This, my friends, was amazing. Article Three is a dystopian set sometime in the future, after we screwed up big time. The world (or part of it, not sure about the geography here, all I know is that it’s set in Europe) is run by the System. The book follows Ava, a rebel and Levi, who’s lost all his beliefs in the rebelling movement, but still has to go to them for help when his sister gets arrested. Ava gets assigned to help him together with another girl named Leymah. Then a lot of things start to happen and it’s great. I need to work on my summaries, I know.
