“You don’t stop after you solve one thing. You keep going, you find a new way and a new path, try to do better and create better.”

 

SYNOPSIS:

All bets are off. This time the gamble is survival.

Emika Chen barely made it out of the Warcross Championships alive. Now that she knows the truth behind Hideo’s new NeuroLink algorithm, she can no longer trust the one person she’s always looked up to, who she once thought was on her side.

Determined to put a stop to Hideo’s grim plans, Emika and the Phoenix Riders band together, only to find a new threat lurking on the neon-lit streets of Tokyo. Someone’s put a bounty on Emika’s head, and her sole chance for survival lies with Zero and the Blackcoats, his ruthless crew. But Emika soon learns that Zero isn’t all that he seems—and his protection comes at a price.

Caught in a web of betrayal, with the future of free will at risk, just how far will Emika go to take down the man she loves?

Most Anticipated Books of 2020

January is almost over and I am just doing this “Most Anticipated” blog. Forgive me for being such a lazy ass blogger.

Anyway, I am here now with the books that I am anticipating for this year! This is not a very long list as I have expected it to be. And I would like to divide this into two categories. The first category is the books that actually captured my interest based on the synopsis that I have read and heard from BookTube or other bloggers. While the second category is the books that I am really looking forward to and are already in my Want to Read on Goodreads as soon as it was announced.

So without further ado, here are my most anticipated books of the year…

“Every locked door has a key.”

 

SYNOPSIS:

The obsession started ten years ago and its fan base now spans the globe, some eager to escape from reality and others hoping to make a profit. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down Warcross players who bet on the game illegally. But the bounty hunting world is a competitive one, and survival has not been easy. To make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships—only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.

Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when instead she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. With no time to lose, Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.

A Decade of Reading

“It was the end of a decade but the start of an age.”

Taylor Swift, Long Live


As the year 2019 came to an end, we did not only closed a year but we are closing a decade. And because of that, I’ve been seeing this trend of people looking back in their decade. So here I am looking back at my decade of reading.

I have been wondering how I will do this but I finally come into terms with just mentioning books that have become the highlight of my year or a book that changed my perspective during that said year.

I have to warn you that this will be a very very veeeerrrryyyy long post because this decade is not just a decade of picking up favorites or seeing how my reading taste changes, this decade is my journey of becoming a bookworm.

So without further ado, here is a decade of my reading…

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.

This is the first time that I’ll be writing a trilogy or series review so bear with me. This review will be filled with spoilers but I’ll try my best not to spoil too much.

Also before jumping to the review, I would like to mention that this is also my May wrap-up because I only read these books in May. So without further ado, let’s get into the review!
