The story is about being mistaken, blold how a person can be both super smart and super zeivn. The mafia, chocolate, the near future, the pseudo-end of life as we know it.

Because It Is My Blood

To be fair, this idea is examined in greater depth in Because It Is My Blood than in All These Things I’ve Done, and I think it becomes much clearer in the second book that there is another layer of interpretation that can be applied to the text. It was very adult, very unforgiving, and yet another sign of Anya’s development that I both liked and bought.


I read the last pages in one sitting, hooked and desperate to know more.

But I iss I learned what it is. But I love you, come what may. Apr 13, Sakina rated it liked it Shelves: She knows that her school doesn’t want her back because she brought a gun to her school, and it appears that someone is trying to kill her, as well as her sister Natty, and her brother Leo who is still in Japan supposedly in hiding. After a turbulent year filled with futile attempts to move beyond her criminal reputation and date a truly ill-advised boy–all while caring for her brother and sister–Anya is hoping that the start of autumn and her release from Liberty Children’s Facility will bring with it calmer times.

If you read this first book, read it. He is a very likable character and I really hope to see more of him the third book, which I’ll hopefully be able to start reading soon. It would have been more interesting to get details of Anya’s second and third stay in Liberty, which are again glossed blod. While i pitied her, Anya didn’t seem to feel sorry for herself at all, which makes me like her all the more.

Het veelbelovende einde maakt me bovendien enorm nieuwsgierig naar het laatste boek in deze serie. The constant asides Anya makes are hlood and repetitive, to the point where I found myself skipping them altogether.

I liked him and I didn’t like him as well. I could probably write an entire paper on her character analysis; if fact, I think my dual enrollment class will have a character analysis paper coming up. To say that Anya is living a difficult life is a massive understatement, but even though she has moments of despair, she perseveres. There’s no real reason why it’s illegal, except that it makes a unique setting and clearly pulls readers in.


Chocolate is considered to be illegal and is a black market item sold at joints like speakeasies. Feb 17, Misty rated it it was amazing Shelves: The story is not a dystopia—my darlings, it never was. I liked the character development as well.

This is a firmly character driven series.

The writing is easy flowing and characters are well written. Als ich klein war, hatte mein Vater mich dorthin mitgenommen. Also, the last half of this book really came off as the story about chocolate being banned blooc an allegory for marijuana.

Anya is determined to have a zvin future, to be a model citizen and avoid the conflicts of the year behind her. Her trip to learn about cacao was a nice addition. While this book is not the kind of book that will become a classic in my opinion, I would probably have rated gabrie,le book four and a half stars, maybe even a four if it was for Anya’s entertaining characterit’s not some typical dystopian or vampire book.

To be honest, I think that the first fifty pages could have been cut.
