✧✧✧/5

(Warning: This review may contain some spoilers)

I was expecting Adam Silvera’s latest novel to give me all the feels like History is All You Left Me did, but I found myself speed reading through portions of this dialogue heavy story to get to the end instead. It wasn’t that it was horribly written or didn’t cover a heavy topic well enough; it was more so I was bored and I wanted to know how they both die at the end.

Let’s just say it wasn’t all bad, but it also wasn’t all good.

I wanted to be gutted by the end of the story, and I wanted to care deeply enough for these characters that I dread their untimely demise; however, I was more so excited and waiting for their deaths to happen.

I’m a gamer so when I heard about another YA release, this time by a female ASIAN author, about a game tournament I was ecstatic. I needed this book in my life.

Marie Lu builds an immersive future world in which technology has completely consumed everyone’s lives. Everything can be done in virtual reality and people spend most of their waking hours in this world; this version of reality doesn’t stray far from what we’re doing ourselves either. Lu spends a lot of time describing the society, the class differences, and the settings that the reader becomes fully engaged with the story right away. Throw in the fact that we have an Asian protagonist and a cast of extremely diverse characters, we have a rare and amazing gem in Warcross.

I’m leaving in 2 days to Taiwan for 3 weeks and I cannot be more excited. This also means I won’t have much time to read but that hasn’t stopped me from uploading a shit tonne of eBooks onto my Kobo. I have a thing for variety.

Before I break out into heat rashes and get really tanned in the 38°C (about 100°F for you Americans) with 75% humidity weather, which makes it feel like it’s 45°C (113°F), I decided to compile a TBR list for my trip.

I have a total of 17 ebooks on my Kobo but there are a few that take precedent over others. These are the 5 books that I’m hoping I’ll read (all summaries are taken directly from Goodreads):
