I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I thought when I read the description of this book that it sounded like it could be good. I was surprised though how much I got into it and how much I liked it. I thought the plot was unique in the sense that you have Nadya who has a connection to all these different gods and can talk to them and use their power. Then you are left questioning as you go if it is a good thing or a bad thing that she is favored by the gods. I like that even [...]

Book Description: In the year 2045, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he's jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade's devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world's digital confines, puzzles that are based on their creator's obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them. When Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! I have to say this was just such a fun read, I love that there is so many 80s references and just fun references all around of pop culture. I think that if the OASIS was real I would definitely be a fan of playing it; I mean who doesn't want to act out the scene from their favorite movies. Like when Wade has to go through [...]

Book Description: Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana. Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won't approve of her feelings for her childhood friend--the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn't as weak as Levana believes her to be and she's been undermining her stepmother's wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that's been raging for far too long. Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters? Fans will not want to miss this thrilling conclusion to Marissa Meyer's national bestelling Lunar Chronicles series. Finally got to read the conclusion of The Lunar Chronicles! I am weird and I have to have a series be the same kind of book (hardback or paperback) so I waited until it came out in paperback to buy and read. I was definitely not disappointed I thought the conclusion of [...]

Flawed (Flawed #1)

Book Description: You will be punished… Celestine North lives a perfect life. She’s a model daughter and sister, she’s well-liked by her classmates and teachers, and she’s dating the impossibly charming Art Crevan. But then Celestine encounters a situation where she makes an instinctive decision. She breaks a rule and now faces life-changing repercussions. She could be imprisoned. She could be branded. She could be found flawed. In her breathtaking young adult debut, bestselling author Cecelia Ahern depicts a society where perfection is paramount and flaws lead to punishment. And where one young woman decides to take a stand that could cost her everything. Let me just first say this has to be one of my favorite books I have gotten in my book boxes yet! I wasn't sure at first how it was going to be and then I started and I just couldn't wait to read more and find out what happens! This is definitely not the normal sci fi/dystopian that I have read, meaning it has a new idea that I have not read about before. This is a society where perfection is what people need to be, [...]

Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future.

Passenger (Passenger #1)

I was walking through Costco a while ago and was looking in the book section for a book for my friend for her birthday. I happened to see the cover of this book and I was like hey this is a cool cover, then I read about it and was like that sounds interesting and it is going to be a series not just one book (my friend really likes series books, as do I). Well we ended up not getting a chance to meet up after I bought it and I had about a month until we had a chance to meet up again (she lives in a different state) so I thought hey we share books she won't mind if I read this one, so I did. Man am I glad I did! I loved it! Here is the description before I get too far into my review: In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles but years [...]
