Book Review: LIFEL1K3 by Jay Kristoff


  • Dystopian future
  • Badass protagonist
  • Amusing sidekicks
  • Androids/Cyborgs
  • Puppy

This book is exactly what the cover states, tragic love story meets post apocalyptic America, with some androids, super powers and a bit of Russian Revolution mythos thrown in.

Because, why not?

Fast paced with fantastic world building, Kristoff takes you along for a journey you didn’t realise you wanted let alone needed.  As my first foray into YA (I was seriously scarred for life after the Twilight fiasco) I am glad I made the leap. The 15 year old in me was cheering from the sidelines whilst thirty something year old me (proving you are never too old to read and enjoy YA) is about to get her book club to read it. 

This book has brought back some teenage nostalgia, so I am off to watch Tank Girl!

Read it. Everyone needs to have a little bit of post apocalyptic girl buddy escapades in their lives.
