Top 5 Wednesday - Rebellion Groups
Mittwoch, 19. November 2014
Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Lainey & Mindy. Check out the Goodreads page here!
This week we are talking about Rebellion groups and honestly this si a really hard one. But, let's try and find 5. As always, these are in no particular order.
#1 Mockingjay - The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
To many spoilery spoilers could happen if I explained this one in more detail so let me just tell you one thing: they are awesome. Read the books. Do it. And then watch the movies.
#2 Real Life vs. Digital School - Awaken Trilogy by Katie Kacvinsky
In Maddie Freeman's future America everything is done digitally. School, shopping, socializing and even going for a walk or ballroom dancing. No one meets in real life anymore. But, there is a movement which wants real life back and those guys are amazing. This Trilogy totally holds out a mirror to show us just how many things are currently going wrong and how it could possibly end up one day. Amazing.
#3 Anti-Slating - Slated Trilogy by Teri Terry
Slating is a process done to teenagers before they turn 16, I believe, when they show criminal behavior. What it does? It erases everything. Your personality, your memories and everything else. Once you are slated it's all gone and you have to learn everything once more. It's horrible. But, luckily there are people out there who stand up against it and the way this story unfolds over the trilogy is absolutely amazing.
#4 Rebels vs Rose - Hunting Freedom Trilogy by Alice Reeds
The Rose is the new government which was set up 44 years ago after the world went to hell during war. The Rose provides it all: safety, education and a place for everyone to live and work at. It might all seem nice and dandy but there are other out in the shadows who know that reality is not quite as pretty as it might seem on the outside.
#5 Dumbledores Army - Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
The one is probably the most obvious choice on this list because how could I not include this iconic group of students who stood up against that wicked woman, Umbridge, and gave the students of Hogwarts until the last book.
