Quick Pick: Beta, by Rachel Cohn

  • Opening line: "It's me she wants to purchase."
  • Reason I picked up the book: I've read Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by her and also a few of her other books, and they've all been great.
  • Reminded me of: A cross between The Handmaid's Tale and the movie Elysium (2013)
  • Recommended for: fans of dystopian books.
  • Something to know: The book is the first in a series, possibly a trilogy or longer. The second book, Emergent, will be out in October 2014.
  • Overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars.


  1. I always like to get in on a series in the beginning, thanks for the heads up.

  2. This might just go on my TBR list. I haven't heard of it but really enjoy dystopian.

  3. Thanks for the suggestion! I never heard of this one!

  4. This sounds like an interesting series!

  5. Sounds like a very interesting blend of styles. I'll have to check it out.

  6. Don't know what dystopian books to google. I have heard of this author and her books. The fact that you laid 4.5 stars on it tells me something.

    1. Yes - 4.5/5 is a VERY high rating for me, my average is about 3.5. Dystopian books are ones that are set in the future but with something that maybe could happen, or that is believable - like Hunger Games.
