‘The 100’ Book Club: Read and discuss the books that inspired the show

Welcome to The 100 Book Club! It’s a virtual book club to discuss the Kass Morgan novels that inspired The 100 television show on The CW! Since our club will be online, you’ll have to supply your own box wine as we read this series! We will even move on to Morgan’s soon to be published book, Light Years when we finish this series!

Here is the official synopsis for our first book, The 100!

No one has set foot on Earth in centuries — until now.

Ever since a devastating nuclear war, humanity has lived on spaceships far above Earth’s radioactive surface. Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents — considered expendable by society — are being sent on a dangerous mission: to recolonize the planet. It could be their second chance at life…or it could be a suicide mission.

CLARKE was arrested for treason, though she’s haunted by the memory of what she really did. WELLS, the chancellor’s son, came to Earth for the girl he loves — but will she ever forgive him? Reckless BELLAMY fought his way onto the transport pod to protect his sister, the other half of the only pair of siblings in the universe. And GLASS managed to escape back onto the ship, only to find that life there is just as dangerous as she feared it would be on Earth.

Confronted with a savage land and haunted by secrets from their pasts, the hundred must fight to survive. They were never meant to be heroes, but they may be mankind’s last hope.
