My Thoughts



The #ReMade trailer is AWESOME.

A few weeks ago, we shared the ins and outs of Serial Box and Remade. Last week, we unveiled the covers for the upcoming episodes. This week, we have a review for S01E01. Come back weekly for ongoing reviews of your new favorite way to consume YA fiction.



As a society, we have become trained to love all things serial. TV shows, podcasts, movies, books! I have to admit, I have serial fatigue. My favorite tv show is going on 12 seasons, Sarah J Maas just announced like 50 billion more sequels to her series, and I just listened to a podcast on episode 86. But when I came across Remade, I was like, WHERE DO I SIGN UP!? Apparently my fatigue does not apply to serialized novels, which are an intriguing concept.

Each release is called an "episode", with 15 episodes making up the full "season". They're written by different authors, including Gwenda Bond and Kiersten White. The first episode is 32 pages long, which means a lot of story has to be packed into a short amount of time. Pack it they do. I can't believe they get so much story into 32 pages! The description above does not describe the first 32 pages, which I imagine are setting the tone for the post-apocalyptic world we are about to enter. 

In episode one, we meet Holden and Seyah, who are driving to a cast party after they finish the latest run of a play they're both in. I won't say more than that because then I would be retelling what happens in those 32 pages but really, the story had me hooked from the minute we met them both and now I'm waiting for the entire season to come out. WAITING. The anticipation is killing me, in the best way.

The entire season is available in e-book and audio for $21.99 on the Serial Box website or appAnd now, a giveaway.
