From the Review Pile (4)

 From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review (or if you don't receive review books, any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

I know that a lot of you have a huge pile of books that you want to read/review, but it understandably takes a while to get around to reading them all - here you can give a book (or two!) some of the publicity that it deserves, even if you haven't read it yet!
This week, I'm going to showcase Brave New Love: 13 Dystopian Tales of Desire edited by Paula Guran!
I am a big fan of dystopian ideas, so hopefully there'll be a few tales in this book that I'll love! I'm showcasing this book as I'm pretty sure that a lot of you will love the idea of this book too and hopefully you'll pick a copy up.

  12. I hadn't heard about this book but it kind of makes sense to me. I'm not a big fan of dystopian, and the title immediately makes me think of Brave new World - which I always kind of hated, I found the world fascinating but the characters were just bland.
