Struck (Struck #1),  by Jennifer Bosworth

Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Dystopian, Science-Fiction

Rating: 4.5/5 stars

Goodreads Summary: "Mia Price is a lightning addict. She’s survived countless strikes, but her craving to connect to the energy in storms endangers her life and the lives of those around her.

Los Angeles, where lightning rarely strikes, is one of the few places Mia feels safe from her addiction. But when an earthquake devastates the city, her haven is transformed into a minefield of chaos and danger. The beaches become massive tent cities. Downtown is a crumbling wasteland, where a traveling party moves to a different empty building each night, the revelers drawn to the destruction by a force they cannot deny. Two warring cults rise to power, and both see Mia as the key to their opposing doomsday prophecies. They believe she has a connection to the freak electrical storm that caused the quake, and to the far more devastating storm that is yet to come.

Mia wants to trust the enigmatic and alluring Jeremy when he promises to protect her, but she fears he isn’t who he claims to be. In the end, the passion and power that brought them together could be their downfall. When the final disaster strikes, Mia must risk unleashing the full horror of her strength to save the people she loves, or lose everything."


  • I love books about lightning- maybe it's because of my thunderstorm phobia, I don't know. When I got this, I couldn't wait to pick it up and give it some love.
  • I loved this one! It was fast-paced and everything I wanted in a good book. I'm raving because I really enjoyed it. The writing was excellent and pulled me from the start. It's different from those other apocalyptic dystopian books where the world is ending and nobody is doing anything to stop it, here we have a kick-ass main character who also has a lightning addiction, which even makes it better.
  • I liked the romance in this one, but it really was nothing special. I needed something more deep and addicting and I wanted to love the male part of the romance.
  • Other than that little tweak, I adored this book and cannot wait for the sequel! Just about perfect!
