Recommended Reading 101: Reality TV

Posted January 28, 2017 by Bonnie in Recommended Reading 101 / 5 Comments

Taking classes and getting excited for the assigned reading was always my favorite part of school. Using that same concept and turning different genres, locations, and subjects into a course of their own, you could come up with your own assigned reading. These would be my picks for recommended reading, what would yours be?

Reality TV 101

Book Review – The Last One: A Novel by Alexandra OlivaIf you’re looking for something post-apocalyptic…

Alexandra Olivia’s debut novel was enough to make me believe there’s still some life in the post-apocalyptic genre. Twelve individuals participate in a wilderness survival show with no idea that in the world outside, their survival is becoming less reality tv and more reality.

Book Review – The Long Walk by Stephen KingIf you’re looking for something subtly horrific…

In The Long Walk, 100 boys compete in a  to see who can out walk the other 99. Only Stephen King could write such a spellbinding tale of a bunch of boys doing nothing but walking.

Ominous October – A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul TremblayIf you’re looking for some family drama and an exorcism…

A Head Full of Ghosts is a mystery/horror combination, where a family who garners the attention of a television producer is given their own television show. Their daughter is diagnosed with schizophrenia but they soon realize that she may need an exorcism instead.

  1. I just bought The Last One! I heard about it from your review but I guess I had forgotten it was unreliable narrator. I love those narratives — esp at the end when you have to reconsider everything.

    I had never heard of AHoG until literally yesterday when a friend replies to my tweet asking about TBR lol. I guess this is a sign I need to read it!
