Hello, awesome nerds and welcome to a new weekly meme hosted by yours truly! If this gains some traction, I will start posting some topics or themes, but for now, use your imagination!
(Bookish) Throwback Thursday
Every Thursday, I encourage you to post about something from your past that is book related. Some ideas to get you started:
- A past review you wrote that makes you cringe now
- What were you reading this time last (or any past) year? (If you have Goodreads and Facebook integrated, this one is super easy to do!)
- A book that you read more than 5 years ago that you might want to reread.
In March of 2014, I was reading Mothership by Martin Leicht and Isla Neal.
Elvie Nara was doing just fine in the year 2074. She had a great best friend, a dad she adored, and bright future working on the Ares Project on Mars. But then she had to get involved with sweet, gorgeous, dumb-as-a-brick Cole–and now she’s pregnant.
Getting shipped off to the Hanover School for Expecting Teen Mothers was not how Elvie imagined spending her junior year, but she can go with the flow. That is, until a team of hot commandos hijacks the ship–and one of them turns out to be Cole. She hasn’t seen him since she told him she’s pregnant, and now he’s bursting into her new home to tell her that her teachers are aliens and want to use her unborn baby to repopulate their species? Nice try, buddy. You could have just called.
So fine, finding a way off this ship is priority number one, but first Elvie has to figure out how Cole ended up as a commando, work together with her arch-nemesis, and figure out if she even wants to be a mother–assuming they get back to Earth in one piece.
What I Remember:
I remember liking this book a fair bit. It was quite silly and fun. I don’t remember much about any problematic content or the characters, though.
