Alright, so let’s face it: I failed miserably last month with The Body Finder. So time to pick a new one, and hopefully I’ll actually, you know, read it this time.
I have a special shelf for 2012 so I will be choosing off of that one instead of my main TBR list.

 

My random.org number: 58

 
The book for slot #58:

Uglies by Scott Westerfield

 

Everybody gets to be supermodel gorgeous. What could be wrong with that? Tally is about to turn sixteen, and she can’t wait. Not for her license — for turning pretty. In Tally’s world, your sixteenth birthday brings an operation that turns you from a repellent ugly into a stunningly attractive pretty and catapults you into a high-tech paradise where your only job is to have a really great time. In just a few weeks Tally will be there.

But Tally’s new friend Shay isn’t sure she wants to be pretty. She’d rather risk life on the outside. When Shay runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the pretty world and it isn’t very pretty. The authorities offer Tally the worst choice she can imagine: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn pretty at all. The choice Tally makes changes her world forever.

 

Heard good things about this series, and I love dystopian!
