After reading Warcross and really enjoying it, I was eager to get my hands on the follow up. Wildcard was as good as I was hoping for. It continues on from the events at the end of Warcross (I won’t say what happens, just that you should read it before you pick up this one) and we catch up with Emika and her crew. There is lots going on, and there is a definite Ready Player One vibe here. I really like the world that Wildcard is set in, and the characters are excellent. If you’re a fan of techo/gaming thrillers, then you need to add these books to your TBR!
I loved the concept of Every Day. Imagine waking up every day in a different body, having to acclimatise to that particular person’s life. No two days are the same, and its up to you how you go through the day. I haven’t read a book like this before, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The premise is unique, and I found myself really rooting for the main character, A. A quirky and unusual read, Every Day was a great departure from my usual books. Definitely recommended!
Holding Up The Universe
I had this on my TBR for a while and then Liz from Liz Loves Books said I should bump it up. I am so glad I did. This was a gem of a book, full of heart and emotion. It is quietly hopeful and it has a beautiful story. I’m still thinking about it months later. Highly recommended!
I had tried to read Caraval before, but I just couldn’t get into it. I picked it up again this year, and obviously I was ready for it this time. Once I started it, I was hooked. I liked the magic, the characters, the story. I found it really easy to get into it and I got lost in the story. I hadn’t even finished it before I requested Legendary from the library. Always a good sign!
