Some Books Ago: Dualed by Elsie Chapman

Every Tuesday I post about the new books I discover. So, I wanted to give a shout out to all those books published some years ago, I don't want to you to forget them!

Hi there! For today's Some Books Ago, I've been thinking about this book: Dualed. Can you believe that I DNF the eARC of this book and I don't remember why? It still says "to-read" on my GR list, so I guess someday I can give it a second chance (second chances work amazing for me!). Have you read it?
Check it out! 

Dualed was published on February 26th 2013 by Random House



Two of you exist. Only one will survive.

The city of Kersh is a safe haven, but the price of safety is high. Everyone has a genetic Alternate—a twin raised by another family—and citizens must prove their worth by eliminating their Alts before their twentieth birthday. Survival means advanced schooling, a good job, marriage—life.

Fifteen-year-old West Grayer has trained as a fighter, preparing for the day when her assignment arrives and she will have one month to hunt down and kill her Alt. But then a tragic misstep shakes West’s confidence. Stricken with grief and guilt, she’s no longer certain that she’s the best version of herself, the version worthy of a future. If she is to have any chance of winning, she must stop running not only from her Alt, but also from love . . . though both have the power to destroy her.



  1. I haven't read this one, but sometimes it is good to give books a second chance. I have DNF'd books before and gone back and liked them. Sometimes I still hated them too lol. :P

    1. Me too, but I don't DNF books. And since I don't remember why I broke my rule with it, I want to try it again someday :)

  2. I have this one! And the sequel, too. Never got around to reading them (they weren't review copies), but I hope to someday.

    Great post, Lis!

  3. I LOVE seeing older books on people's blogs. Sometimes I feel like my blog feed is SO blah because everyone is talking about the same books. Don't get me wrong, I love the excitement of new books, but I also LOVE when I get reminded of older books.

    Anyhow, I remember this book- I don't read a ton of books like this, but I'm always trying to find things out of my comfort zone to read :)
