Finished The Culling by Steven dos Santos, a YA post-apocalyptic with a gay twist.

A lot of Hunger Games influences here (though I'm not sure which one came first). But it had a lot more psychological torture inflicted upon the teens than Hunger Games. And the protagonist is gay, which is why I started it. But, it's nice to see another book where being gay isn't his "thing". It's just an aspect of his character. The relationship could have easily been straight, meaning it was handled as just like a hetro relationship, which is how I like to see it.

Ended with a feeling of retribution and revenge will be part of book two, but not happily. Which is also refreshing.

Overall good story, pretty intense with the horror and violence, well defined world.
