Wither (Chemical Garden) - Lauren DeStefano The first couple of times I picked up this book I was on the fence about whether it was worth reading or not. However, eventually I convinced myself to give it a shot. I am so glad I did. This book has stuck with me long after finishing it. It's not that it's overly unique, although there are unique ideas, but probably the way it's portrayed is what makes this book so excellent. The book is well written and I'm so greatful that the wait for the next book in the trilogy is only a few months away!
