Literary Friday ~ The Registry

The Registry

This book was a freebie for me on my Nook and it was worth every penny... the synopsis was better than the actual book.  I was very disappointed in it, seriously I forced myself to complete it. 

The Registry is about America in the future, how the men went to war and many people died here in the United States while the war was going on.  In this new America, the girls are raised to be bride and sold to the highest bidder.  The boys are taken away from their families and raised to be soldiers and after their time serving they are allowed to purchase their bride. 

The main female character Mia Morrissey is eighteen and has been sold to be married but she convinces her best friend to escape with her to Mexico where there is hope of freedom.  Mia was warned by her older sister how horrible being a wife can be.

Mia and her friend does have help from a boy who worked on her farm and they fall for one another.  This book is the first in a series of books that I do not plan to complete.  The plot was horrible I thought and way too predictable.  I just did not enjoy this book at all.  I am glad it was a free download.  The book sort of reminded me of a poor Mad Max combined with a poor Hunger Games feeling.  I do not like to write bad reviews and try to find something that I liked in a book, but this one, I could not find anything.
