RATING: 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

Published: August 28, 2018

Publisher: HarperCollins

Format: Hardcover

Pages: 464

 

 


“There aren’t any happy endings in real life, because there aren’t any endings in life, only moments of change… There’s always another adventure, another challenge, another opportunity to find happiness or chase it away.”

 

SYNOPSIS:

Welcome back to New York, 2119. A skyscraper city, fueled by impossible dreams, where the lives of five teenagers have become intertwined in ways that no one could have imagined.

Leda just wants to move on from what happened in Dubai. Until a new investigation forces her to seek help—from the person she’s spent all year trying to forget.

Rylin is back in her old life, reunited with an old flame. But when she starts seeing Cord again, she finds herself torn: between two worlds, and two very different boys.

Calliope feels trapped, playing a long con that costs more than she bargained for. What happens when all her lies catch up with her?

Watt is still desperately in love with Leda. He’ll do anything to win her back—even dig up secrets that are better left buried.

And now that Avery is home from England—with a new boyfriend, Max—her life seems more picture-perfect than ever. So why does she feel like she would rather be anything but perfect?

In this breathtaking finale to The Thousandth Floor trilogy, Katharine McGee returns to her vision of 22nd-century New York: a world of startling glamour, dazzling technology, and unthinkable secrets. After all, when you have everything… you have everything to lose.

Down Among The Rabbit Hole

Where have I been? I feel like I am Alice and I just stepped out of the rabbit hole!

I am well aware that I am not updated with new series and new books that are coming out lately. But that’s because I made a resolution to myself that I need to finish all the completed series that I have on my shelf before diving into a new one; it’s because I may not finish the series if I did not push myself to read up to the last book.

But I have been watching BookTube A LOT. I’ve developed a habit lately of watching a video after I finish a chapter or two. But never, I mean NEVER have I heard ANYTHING about these books! Am I watching and following the wrong people? But…
THE HUNGER GAMES TRILOGY GETTING ANOTHER NOVEL AND THE LEGEND TRILOGY IS NO LONGER A TRILOGY BECAUSE THERE WILL BE A 4TH AND FINAL BOOK.

“But sometimes you have to be brave. Sometimes you have to show people what’s important in life.”

SYNOPSIS:

I’ve lost it. 😦 The only thing in the world I wasn’t supposed to lose. My engagement ring. It’s been in Magnus’s family for three generations. And now, the very same day his parents are coming, I’ve lost it. The very same day. Do not hyperventilate, Poppy. Stay positive!! 🙂

A couple of glasses of bubbly with the girls at a charity do and Poppy’s life has gone into meltdown. Not only has she lost her engagement ring, but in the panic that followed, she’s lost her phone too. As she paces shakily round the hotel foyer she spots an abandoned phone in a bin. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number with the hotel staff. It was meant to be!

Except the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree. He wants his phone back, and doesn’t appreciate Poppy reading all his messages and wading into his personal life. As Poppy juggles wedding preparations, phone messages and hiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents, can things get any more tangled?
