    1. “How long do you think you can live like this? How long can you dance and twirl in pretty dresses knowing that people are starving and dying?”“I guess I try not to think about it,” I said in a small voice.This book was not terrible, but the main character is frilly, the plot itself is fluffy, and the overall attitude of the book feels contrived and insincere.It's likeIvanka Trump. Daughter of millionaire/billionaire (depending on how the market is performing) Donald Trump. A nice enough [...]



    2. What a pleasant surprise! I didn't realise I'd added Landry Park to my mental list entitled "just another dystopia" until it managed to completely prove me wrong. My first thought after finishing this book is that it's probably more suited to fans of historical fiction than the typical dystopia. The style of writing, the plot, the characters and the setting all feel like something straight out of an historical novel. If you ask me, it worked very well. The story starts as I might have expected. [...]

      Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestI keep coming back to young adult novels. No matter how many times I tell myself, "This is the last straw, I'm done", I get seduced back into the world of costume dystopians, angsty vampires, and mean girl cliques. When the YA authors get it right, they get it right. THE WINNER'S CIRCLE, GLITTER - I went into both of those books expecting more of the same - a passive heroine who spends all her time mooning over the love interest, only to find myse [...]


    4. DNF Somewhere there was an early blurb that made this sound like Jane Eyre crossed with Scarlett O'Hara in the 23rd century, but 100 pages in, I don't really see it. The Neo-Victorian thing isn't portrayed in an especially interesting manner either. My enjoyment of this book is also severely hampered by the fact that this story has remarkably similar plot points and themes to the upcoming THE WINNER'S CURSE, which is the better book by far in terms of story, writing, complexity, world-building, [...]


    5. Review found at: awesomebooknutsDownton Abbey meets The Selection? that's a bit of a stretch since there is no prince a bunch of girls are trying to get. There is a dysopian Downton Abbey feel since they have brought back all the pomp and circumstance that the time of the 18th, 19th, 20th centuries had with balls, debutantes, money, a place of higher society, manners, dancing, which is always fun and I LOVE the idea of bringing most of all that back.I like Avery most of the time, however lets be [...]


    6. Tell Me More: If you know me, you know I'd be hard-pressed to resist any tale that uses period elements, even if the main genre that the story resides in is dystopian. So yes, my hopes were high for Landry Park, but unfortunately I found it predictable at its best and offensive at its worst.The life of Landry Park, literally, is dependent on the class issues that permeate the story. The reader is introduced to this peculiar new world through Madeline Landry, who enjoys the lifestyle powered by a [...]


    7. 3.5/5I read this book expecting it to be better. The first half of the book was definitely more boring boring than the latter half. I'm glad that I persevered through it and finished it. Plot This book is set in the futuristic and chaotic United States where there are two classes of people, the gentry and the Rootless. Madeline Laundry, the main character, is 17 years old and hopeful that she will go to the university unlike what her family expects from her. They expect her to get married, produ [...]



    8. I had high hopes for this one when I first heard of it, but it was mostly very boring. The narrator was terrible or monotone, though, she did read very fast, but the story itself wasn’t all that interesting. Madeline spends most of her time thinking about university or how much she loves her house or how much she’s trying to pretend she doesn’t like David Dana. I was intrigued at first, but it got old very fast. The world building was also very confusing and felt quickly assembled just so [...]


    9. My reaction to almost everything about Landry Park as depicted by the Dowager Countess/Dame fucking Maggie Smith from Downton Abbey (which this book is sadly aligned with):


    10. The East has taken over the US west of the Rockies, and the rest of America needed quick order after their loss in the war. Nuclear power becomes the source of energy, and class divides ensue. The gentry control all the resources and rule through connections and influence. The Rootless, the lowest class, are oppressed and given the worst jobs which subject them to radiation poisoning. As talks of a revolution brew as well as attacks from the East, Madeline Landry must decide where her loyalties [...]


    11. I dont know why, but I felt this world from Madeline's POV wasn'td enough. Madeline is a gentry lady. She is respected and is in a high position in society. She has a beautiful estate and food to eat. She has free will and is self-independant. But, lets come back to the point that she is agentrylady.Why am I highlighting this point? In a world where the Rootless are beaten and killed, just for stealing a small loaf of bread, Madeline lives in total comfort and luxury. Although yes, Madeline was [...]


    12. Decent enough ideas, but there's not much to sink your teeth into here. Everything is kind of middle-of-the-road. Madeline and the supporting characters pass that test of "describe them without describing their appearance", but we never really get attached to them on a deeper level. Nothing Hagen writes is particularly compelling.Angel says it better in her review (direct link), so I'm not going to rehash her words. I do want to add that with regard to race, I'm bothered that while we're told th [...]


    13. Gone with the Wind, Downton Abbey, Jane Austen, it's all in this book! Madeline Landry is a character you can immediately relate to and feel what she is feeling through the entire book. I wanted to attend the debutante balls, walk the landscaped gardens and fall in love with David Dana. Her life of luxury does not completely satisfy Madeline and her curious nature leads to uncovering secrets that have been hidden for years. The nuclear power, Cherenkov Lanterns, tablets and wall screens keep rem [...]


    14. Wow. This book. I really liked this book. I felt Madeline's pain, and Madeline actually reminds me of me. Unsociable teen who loves reading… Landry Park had swoon-worthy male characters and awesome plot twists!


    15. 4.5 stars"Downton Abbey meets The Selection in this dystopian tale of love and betrayal."What a misleading caption. I really hate the fact they're making this out to be like any other dystopian novels -- full of love. Landry Park was so much more than that. Many dystopian novels are not done well, and I'm very cautious to pick these up; however, in here we receive an ubiquitous amount of history about the Landry's and their importance to the new United States. I could not put this down. Apart fr [...]



    16. In a futuristic, fractured United States where the oppressed Rootless handle the raw nuclear material that powers the Gentry's lavish lifestyle, seventeen year old Madeline Landry must choose between taking over her father's vast estate or rebelling against everything she has ever known, in the name of justice.


    17. November 2016The second time through was so much better!!!!I enjoyed it so much! I read before bed and did not want to put the book down, I stayed up until 3:30 am! The characters and plot were so much better. July 20153.5, sometimes boring, but a good plot and characters.




    18. I received this ARC from Penguin Publishers in exchange for an honest review. I award this book four stars.Landry Park by Bethany Hagen is touted as a combination of Downton Abbey and The Selection, which is pretty accurate. We meet Madeline in the first few pages of the book, and she is part of the gentry in the dystopian United States who rule over the Rootless, who live a horrible existence and have a short life span due to working with radiation all the time. She's different from the others [...]


    19. (Source: I own a copy of this book.)This was a different kind of dystopian story, with some interesting science thrown in.Madeline was an interesting character, and I did feel for her with her insistence that she wanted to go to university rather than to get married. It was an awful situation for her to be in, and her father’s insistence that he would force her to do as she was told and produce an heir was pretty bad.The storyline in this was quite interesting, with issues about nuclear power [...]


    20. Dear readers, it's no secret that I'm a huge "Downton Abbey" fan. So when I heard "Downton". dystopia, and post-American future? I got very excited. I started dreaming up expectations. And I can happily say that these expectations were mostly met with this debut novel. However, I can also say that "The Selection" comparison? Not really relevant here. I think that Penguin was kind of trying to find something to make a pitch to the audience with (X meets Y in this Z tale!, etc). Hagen's tale has m [...]


    21. Ik heb ontzettend genoten van Landry Park. Dit boek wist me met haar originele toekomstvisie meteen aan te grijpen en ook de keuze voor een hoofdpersonage uit de gegoede burgerij gaf me een fris en nieuw perspectief. Helaas was de romantiek behoorlijk cliché, maar desondanks is dit boek zeker een aanrader.Mijn complete recensie lees je op Oog op de Toekomst.


    22. This book has the unusual quality of feeling both futuristic and historical. It surprised me and enthralled me from page one. Especially beautiful is Bethany's lyrical writing style. It is a true pleasure to have been an early reviewer of this book.



    23. I read this whole book in one day so I obviously liked it haha. It was interesting and fun. I do see how it's relatable to the selection series even tho others dont. Excited to start the next one.
