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):

I’M SO SAD AND DISAPPOINTED. I was really excited for Final Girls because not only did the premise sound interesting, but I also have not read a really good thriller/horror this year yet.

To simply put it, I couldn’t care enough about the story or the characters; especially not pill-popping heroine Quincy. When you find yourself not giving a single fuck about the “tragic” protagonist, then there’s something clearly wrong, and unfortunately, throwing the book out the window and jumping ship is the quickest solution.

Final Girls is about the aftermath of a massacre similar to that of Friday the 13th slasher films. We follow Quincy Carpenter who is struggling hard with trying to live a “normal life” with her boyfriend. Everything is fine and dandy until a fellow final girl Lisa randomly commits suicide which triggers a series of events that cause Quincy to revisit her own trauma.

What a hot mess of a book.
