    6. I received an Advanced Reader s Copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review This has not influenced my opinion in any way This first struck me as very, I say very familiar I m not sure how good that quality is, because one of the most important characteristics a book has to have for me to personally enjoy it is originality So, what s is about Well, The Lying Planet centers on Jay Lawton, who lives on planet Liberty Jay is about to turn eighteen, which means that he wil [...]

    7. 2.5 StarsI was given a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest reviewJay is the male MC and narrator of The Lying Planet That title, it s just perfect for the story yet the story fell flat in terms of the writing and the desire to continue reading I ve read another novel from Carol Riggs, Bottled That book was written flawlessly and beautifully But when I read The Lying Planet, I couldn t help but feel that the writing was underdeveloped It s not that the whole novel was written poor [...]

    8. The synopsis of The Lying Planet really grabbed me, and I instantly knew it was a book I wanted to read Despite my interest, it took me a while to start the book I kept delaying it to read other things, kept bumping it down my to read list I m rather annoyed with myself for doing such a thing because once I started reading the story I came to really enjoy it.I ll admit that it took me a couple of chapters to be gripped by this story Things are a bit slow at the start, and I found myself waiting [...]

    9. I signed up to review The Lying Planet, but I just couldn t get into it I want to thank heatherbloggs for giving me the opportunity to read this book.I want to say it isn t the writing because from what I can tell it is written well, but for some reason I couldn t get pulled into the story I found myself reading than one book, and often I d forget I was even reading this one and go to the other one because it held my attention Again, this has nothing to do with the writing, I just think it wasn [...]

    10. So, I received this as a gift from a friend, and to that friend, I say this Thank You TLP is a nice, originally realistic sci fi novel, which takes place in the future A future where earth is forced to send off some of its inhabitants to another planet, called Liberty The planet is divided into three zones, which, I think, sorry I m kinda bad with names, were called Fort Refuge, Fort Hope, and Not sure.In these zones, kids are raised by their parents until they turn eighteen When they turn eight [...]

    11. This review can also be found here on A Leisure Moment I received an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review When I saw this cover, I knew I had to read this book The sense of hopelessness, the undercurrent of mystery, and definite sci fi hues sucked me in, and I hoped the story inside was just as wonderful Jay Lawton had always been the good guy He followed all the rules of Sanctuary, a small town on the planet Liberty that was safe from the effects of the deadly dust in the outer re [...]

    13. I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review With its unique setting and characters, The Lying Planet is a fascinating YA Sci Fi novel.At first the story appears to be like many other YA books I have read with a ceremony that determines the young residents standing in society and the rebels who want to change things, but it has its own unique spin and definitely takes a turn unlike any other book that I have read lately In this complex, fascinating world, a m [...]

    14. So my first question is there a sequel Will there be I could talk about this book all day It is so hard not to post spoilers This book is has many layers to it It tells a story of children living a basic cult like life It has been brow beat into them to follow certain rules and codes of conduct for greater rewards at their time of testing at the age of eighteen, and punishment and a threat of banishment if they fail They are told banishment will end in certain death, as the planet is filled with [...]

I received this book for free from the author publisher via YA Reads in exchange for an honest review.This book reminds me of why I love science fiction and dystopia The story is so compelling that I could hardly put the book down This book has such a carefully constructed world Everything is so creative and imaginative I loved all of the details and descriptions The plot was very engaging I did see some similarities to other science fiction and dystopian tropes, but they were not overwhelming T [...]

    16. The book began at a great pacing and with lots of interesting characters and with a very good plot And I mean VERY GOOD I was very surprised when everything began to be revealed I am saying nothing as to save the surprises for future readers , but then it began to feel as we were moving around the same all the time and that the plot didn t move forward At some point I began to lose interest, eventhough the outside and the dogs are great and lovely parts, respectively But the war in the end let s [...]

    17. This book had well developed characters, the world building was well constructed, it had a lot of advantages and the concept was amazing but I found it a lot similar to other books like divergent which for me spoiled a lot the fun of reading it.But I would recommend it to people that like these kind of books.

    20. 2.5 5 StarsThis review and many can be found on my blog Feed Your Fiction AddictionI really enjoyed this author s first book, but I somehow just couldn t get into this one I couldn t exactly put my finger why I wasn t enjoying the book because there wasn t anything terribly wrong with it Nothing that made me cringe or sigh in frustration If you re a big fan of science fiction, you might love this one But, for me, it was just a bit too drawn out lots of talking about doing things and not actuall [...]

    21. I received an ARC of The Lying Planet from the publisher via NetGalley, in exchange with an honest review.A great plot that will make you see LIFE from a different perspective.Okay, I know that I only gave it 2.5 stars, but I still stand by my previous sentence The correlation the author made between how humans take care of animals, then kill them for food and what the aliens are actually doing is truly phenomenal Carol is not a vegan, but the way humans are disgusted by how these aliens treat t [...]

    22. Title The Lying PlanetAuthor Carol RiggsGenre Young Adult, SciFi, DystopianFormat Ebook, NetGalleyPages 285Rating 5Heat 2Thoughts Wow, wasn t expecting that I assumed there were aliens but didn t even come close to figuring out what they were doing until I got to that part, and all I ll say is e Very easy story to get pulled into, nothing is as it seems so it s a page turner You ve been warned, if you don t start this early in the day you will be up late finishing it So far I have enjoyed every [...]

    23. This book has left me wanting I literally could not put this book down What a great idea for a book On very many levels this book makes you think about good v Evil truth v perceived truth rebel v Responsible predator v Prey right v Wrong etc The struggle is real Often in life we have to do the right thing for the greater good, but can we spare the individuals for the cohesive group I really enjoyed Jay s inner dilemma specially when he is sabotaging himself and the test What is next What happen [...]

    25. This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review So here it is.Let s talk about the book first, it has a beautiful cover and an equally intriguing story line The twists and turns kept me on the edge throughout the night Yup I read it during night cause I m an owl What intrigued me was the setup of the story human race on a different planet living their lives and that too in a civilized manner without any outer interferences Which was pretty ironic so to speak Now that s where the twist [...]

    26. Aliens versus Humans It s back again With 75% of it s glory, might I add I received a copy of this book for an honest review and here it goes.You do expect from a YA Science Fiction book, but, this book does fair justice to that expectation to some extent Interesting concepts of time and galactic fantasies that you ve pondered on, this book has it all The only lag is the detailing Sometimes, trivial information can really be interesting since I m really intrigued about this new stuff of 13 13 2 [...]

    27. I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review First Impression Another planet full of mystery, sometime in the future Sounds intriguing.Characters Most of the characters are children and teenagers No spoilers, but the adults in this society are unlike you can imagine I really liked the heroes of this story, and cared about their journey.World Building The Lying Planet is gorgeous on the cover as well as inside its pages I can easily imagine this becoming a film, and would li [...]

    28. NOTE I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.The first thing that I would like to say is that this book was nothing like anything I ve ever read before I enjoyed how it was still classified as YA, but it did not follow the typical YA formula that you tend to see in a lot of YA books The imagery regarding the aliens was extremely grotesque, and their purpose with the humans sent chills down my spine In all honesty, I could barely tear myself away from this book for even a m [...]
