30 Day Book Challenge - Days 19 and 20

Day 19: Book that turned you on

Dead to the World - Charlaine Harris. Gotta love Amnesia Eric :)

Day 20: Book you’ve read the most number of times

I was never one for re-reading books, that's quite a recent phenomenon for me, so it would probably be one of the books I've studied or taught. The most likely candidate is The Giver, by Lois Lowry that I taught to year 8s. In a dystopian future society, a young boy is allocated his future job and finds out that he will be the Receiver. He will become responsible for all the memories of his seemingly perfect society. As he is taught about the past, he finds out that the present is not as perfect as it seems. It has quite a few similarities with Matched, by Allie Condie which I've reviewed elsewhere on here, but doesn't have the romance element.
