Creation by Kat Mellon

If, as an artist, you were placed in a society without money, with all your needs provided, and told to create, what would you think? I think most of those who feel the need to dance, to write, to sing, to draw would love this. But anything can be twisted, and it's this world of forced creation that Creation draws us into.

In Creation, all the creators (the writers, dancers, painters, etc) live in a seemingly ideal society where their only focus is on creating new works. But it's not as it seems - when they run dry, they're sent to the Community. And there are topics that they can't create about - like money or war. 

The narrator is a Writer. And as one of her friends gets sent to the community, she starts getting strange memories, of real trees - things that have only existed in the creations so far. And well, you can probably imagine how it goes. 

What I liked about this story was the set-up. The world was really interesting, and it's a pity that finding out about the true state of society is now part of the plot. So no worries, I won't give any spoilers away!

The only thing I didn't like about the book was that it's too short! It ended at a place where I think most books would be in the middle. I'd really love to read more about this!

Disclaimer: I got this book as part of the Enchanted Book Blog Tours stop. I was not required to give a positive review, just my honest opinion.
