Blog Tour: Peaceful Genocide by J.A. Reynolds

Thanks for stopping by my blog for my tour stop! Check out my review bellow and enter to win a Kindle Fire and a copy of the book!

Peaceful Genocide by J.A. Reynolds
Publication date: November 25th 2013
Genres: Science Fiction, Thriller, Young Adult


Seventeen-year-old Mitzi and Deuce can recall how many drops of water were on a leaf from a rainstorm five years ago and conversations from last week, month, or year. They have the ability to remember every second of everyday—since birth.

This gift has blessed Mitzi with a history of being sexually assaulted by researchers and abused by her own parents. She trusts no one. Likes no one. Deuce, however, is a high school standout. His gift has made him a superstar on the football field and his memory promises him endless opportunities.

When they both end up at an Alzheimer’s research facility under false proviso, they quickly realize this place isn’t what it seems to be. They endure crazy military-style tests, are forcefully drugged, and complete real-life simulations that haunt them.

Mitzi and Deuce have no idea what the researchers want to do with them or their memories. But one thing is clear: the researchers will go to any lengths to get what they want.




JA Reynolds lives in the Midwest with a normal family, raising a normal daughter, with some abnormal pets. It’s extraordinarily ordinary.

Peaceful Genocide was exciting, thrilling, and intense. I wasn't expecting this book to be so good!

There are four kids in this novel that are thrown into a crazy plot: Paisley, Ralph, Mitzi and Deuce. Right from the beginning of this novel, they (more specifically, Mitzi and Deuce) have their skills tested. Scientists want to use them for their own advantage, and Mitzi wants to know why.

I really liked all the characters in the book, and I really enjoyed Mitzi's character. There were some times when I thought she was just so crazy, but then I had to remember where she was and what was happening to her. She has trust issues, and really wants a mother figure in her life, and I really felt so bad for her character because of her past history.

Deuce was an interesting character. He was the complete opposite of Mitzi's background-wise: he's an athlete, he's popular, he's charming etc. At first, I didn't like him but he eventually did creep into my heart.

There were a lot of intense moments in this book, right from the beginning. It throws you lots of curves, and learning the truth about the facility is shocking!

I liked this book, but I didn't like the loose endings. And even though I loved Mitzi, a part of me wasn't expecting such a dramatic change in character. But this book is great overall, and I recommend it for anyone who enjoys the dystopian/sci-fi genre!

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars!
