The Girl With All The Gifts - M.R. Carey 3.5/5🌟
This book is completely different to anything I would normally read and to be honest I don't know if I would have picked it up had I known the basis of the story - but I'm glad I did! Easy to read and very enjoyable, this book provided something new with every twist and turn!
Following the story of a young girl, Melanie, in the midst of the breakdown of the human race, layers of the story are peeled back through Melanie's eyes as she grows wise to the world around her. While the book is seriously heartbreaking and a real page turner, with each new development more unexpected than the last, I found the seriousness of the messages within to be somewhat overshadowed by the almost comical nature of the apocalyptic threat. That said, the story touches on some complex moral questions and explores the different sides to people that are brought out under difficult circumstances, facing a threat that is not totally impossible at some point in our future. The characters are realistic, relatable and not 100% likeable, but you are able to understand the difficult actions and choices they have to make throughout the story. Overall, this kind of post-apocalyptic setting isn't really my thing but I found this book to be enjoyable and fresh - thrilling and fast-paced, at times I couldn't put it down! I'd definitely recommend this book even if apocalyptic thrillers aren't your thing, the characters, story and messages all come together to form an original, meaningful and thoroughly enjoyable read.
Ahhh I’m so behind on my book reviews! 🤦🏽♀️
So this was my #unreadshelfproject2019 of March as it had been on my TBR for a year!
I bought it originally as I absolutely loved the The Girl With All The Gifts (both Book and movie) so I had high hopes for this. I did enjoy the premise of this.. I love anything apocalyptic but this took it to a whole new level. I don’t want to give anything away but the last chapter I was just like WHAT THE ACTUAL FUDGE?! I also got a bit annoyed sometimes about how much detail M.R Carey went into. Like there’s descriptive and there’s using so many descriptive words in a sentence it just becomes a thesaurus 🤷🏽♀️
This sounds like I’m giving it a bad review, I’m not, I enjoyed it very much sadly not as much as The Girl With All The Gifts. Greaves was my favourite character, without him it would definitely get less stars. ❤️
FYI not 100% sure why my hand has become a claw in this picture.
It’s the last day of @jennsbookvibes Rainbow Book Challenge 😀so here is a book rainbow 🌈
I had so much fun doing this, and I loved seeing how creative people who also participated were in their pictures !

I do have gifts, or quite simply I do have magic. In this picture I am holding the book upside down but using my magic to help it levitate. Comment your ideas on how I did this. I wanna know if you know.
Bunaaa am revenit și eu după o săptămâna cu o noua poza pentru voi . ,,Fata cu toate darurile “ a fost un thriller distopic care pe mine m-a ținut non-stop in priza , de când am început-o pana am finalizat-o .
Melanie este o fetița specială .Inchisa intr-un buncăr împreuna cu colegii ei , a invatat sa se supună tuturor comenzilor și doar domnișoara Justineau era scăparea fetei . Asta pana in ziua in care afla ce este ea cu adevărat . Totul se schimba iar ea împreuna cu domnișoara Justineau si alți doi oameni ai buncarului fug si încearcă sa-si salveze viețile de periculoasele apariții ale locului .
A fost o carte drăguța . O recomand amatorilor de thrillere . De la mine a primit 4⭐️/5 . 🤗
Teacups and zombies! I just finished The Girl with All the Gifts and I couldn't wait to photograph it with my other favourite zombie novel, World War Z. If you like zombies and haven't read either of them, I seriously recommend you get on it!
I loved the Girl with All the Gifts because it was such an interesting take on a heavily saturated genre. For more thoughts, check my blog for a review of The Girl with All the Gifts (link in my bio). #thegirlwithallthegifts#worldwarz#zombiebooks#scifibooks#zombies#maxbrooks#mrcarey#bookstack

This book has been with me longer than most of the Stephen King books that I own. I still haven't read it until now. What do you think of it? Is it good? Am I just asking questions because I can't think of a better caption? 🤣
Today's #marchcolorblast prompt is popcorn lover's day—yellow. (please excuse my weird hand and dry skin and that awful shadow 😂)
Amateurs de zombie ou tout simplement de scénarios cohérents, foncez devant #thegirlwithallthegifts ( #thelastgirl en VF...) 😱 un scénario vraiment bon qui use des clichés pour les détourner, un final grandiose et rare souligné par un jeu d'acteur vraiment réussi. Un bon petit film après une rude journée 👍
Boa tarde, leitores!
Vocês acham que possuem algum dom? 🧐
Para o britânico M. R. Carey, Melanie é a garota superdotada protagonista de sua obra “A menina que tinha dons”. 👧🏼
O cenário é uma Inglaterra infectada por um fungo que transforma pessoas em feras famintas e irracionais. No país, há um laboratório militar que guarda aquilo que pode ser a cura para essa epidemia e, dentro dele, existe um grupo de crianças que, apesar de terem contraído a infecção, ainda estão conscientes e conseguem controlar a fome. Após o local ser invadido pelos contaminados, seis sobreviventes conseguem escapar e partem rumo a um lugar seguro. Entre militares e cientistas, está Melanie, a menina que tinha dons.
O que será que pode acontecer nesse futuro distópico? 😱

melanie teaches us how to be alive even if we're literally dead inside and out. that no matter how the world tries to dictate what you are and what you're supposed to be, being true to who you are and showing the people around you that you care for them is enough proof that you're more than being the undead kid. and all of these are possible because of a certain teacher that makes us believe in ourselves that we are more than what others think we are..that we are special. you will surely appreciate this more if you are a teacher and to be as dedicated as miss justineau...to see the class not just kids inside the classroom but something much much more. "Good morning Miss Justineau." #TheGirlWithAllTheGifts
Happy Saturday! 🙂 The Girl With All The Gifts is my #currentread , and it's actually a required read for my English class! It's good so far, I just feel like the story is starting to drag a little. Love & Other Words is next on my TBR and I desperately want to read it but I have so much homework I have to catch up on this weekend, I'm not sure when I'm going to be able to get to it! I have to write a 3-5 page paper on a trope in The Girl With All The Gifts and connect it to other apocalypse fiction and connect it to the world! I'm not sure what I'm going to write about yet... 😁 Have you read this book? What are your thoughts? #books#thegirlwithallthegifts#mrcarey#loveandotherwords#christinalauren#currentlyreading#bookstagram
