Rating:  5 out of 5

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.

note: This is not a typical review. Few months ago Zemmy did the same thing, for her first 5 star book review on this blog. I kind of borrowed the idea from her. lol But this is the only way I can truly describe how i feel about this book.

When I first found out about the Uglies series

When it was ordered few months later

I was waiting for so long to get it. (more than a month)

Than I decided to go to the post office

                                           And there... There was my package with Uglies

I was like

When I finally started reading it

Few pages in

50 pages in

50 more pages in

100 more pages in

Near the end

When I finally finished reading it

When I got the idea to do this kind of ''review''

So, this is my new favorite book. 

5/5 stars 
How do you like the ''review''? Have you read the book? Did you like it?

I didn't know Uglies has a different cover so I thought this a different "Uglies" book. Anyway, I've read mixed reviews about it and it's great that you loved it. I will read this soon! I love your review! I love how you put together the .gifs.

This is AWESOME! I'm loving the pictures (Inception and Doctor Who) I own all four books in this series...haven't decided on a favorite yet...Extras was pretty cool (I love anything to do with Japanese culture) and the idea that a lot of the crazy ridiculous things that take place in Uglies and Co. can become reality definitely gives you food for thought ^.^ I enjoyed your review, thanks for posting!

Sandra said...

Haha you were definitely excited. Thanks for the review! Gave me some laughs with the gifs. Might look into the book now :)

I enjoyed this series too, and would recommend to anyone, but they aren't the best of the best like The Hunger Games. My favorite book is actually Extras.
