What am I going to read next?

I finished reading The Unit. It is a sad dystopia. It was a book that has really stuck with me. The main character is sent to “The Unit” because she has reached (40 or 50 years of age) and she has no children. The government determines this makes her dispensable and unneeded for the economic growth of their society. So, they send her to the unit, where she is expected to make donations to people who are needed. People in the unit donate parts of their body like kidneys and stem cells until they’re required to make their final donation: heart or lungs. The main character falls in love with an older man at the unit. What will happen then? You might want to read that book. You can read my previous book review of the Unit and my process of learning that I like to read a dystopia -- by clicking here.

What book are you going to read next?
I received a package slip on my door today from UPS.

I have a package from!

Who wants to know what book it is?

And it is…

Across the Universe” by Beth Revis.

This will be the 10th book I've read in 2011 or (11th book) if you include the book on ethics that I've read for class (which was really long). But this is the 10th book that I've read for leisure and enjoyment this year.

This book isn’t the same as the previously released “Across the Universe” movie.
Here is an interview with the author:

Here is the link for the book:

I had read several positive blogs and book reviews about Across the Universe.
I’ve recently discovered that I mostly like reading dystopias and future related stories. Of course, I’ve read many dystopia books in the past like, The Road and The Stand. I just recently became aware that I often read these types of books.

I finally ordered “Across the Universe” after seeing my friend Morgan’s video book review:

Here is the book trailer:
