Waiting on Wednesday #36: WARCROSS - by Maria Lu


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme originally hosted by Breaking the Spine and now taken over by Wishful Endings that highlights upcoming book releases we're excited to read. On my blog, I include movies as well.



Publication Date: 12th of September. 

For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game—it’s a way of life. 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 players who bet on the game illegally. But the bounty hunting world is a competitive one, and survival has not been easy. Needing 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.

I have heard amazing things about this author, and while I've never read her before, this books sounds incredible. I just love the idea of hackers and virtual reality and GOSH IT LOOKS GOOD.

I'm also gonna request an ARC and see what happens!! *fingers crossed*




Anyone else excited for Warcross?

  3. Definitely can't wait for this one! Though as a rule to myself I make myself get caught up in an author's books before reading their new ones! Still need to finish the Young Elites trilogy! But this one sounds fun!!

    Have a GREAT day!

  6. You've never read Marie Lu?!?! Do yourself a HUGE favor and read the entire Legend trilogy. Right now. It's such a good series and it's by far one of my favorite dystopia series out there because the writing is amazing, the plot is engaging and the characters are each unique and don't fall into tropes it makes me happy. ^.^

  14. AWESOME, AWESOME PICK, AMY!!!! I'm waiting for this one, as well!! There aren't that many books out there about female gamers, and I think this needs to change. As a feminist, I'm DEFINITELY interested in seeing women and girls break into supposedly "male" fields!

    Thanks for sharing!! Also, thanks for commenting on my "Can't Wait Wednesday" post!! HUGS!!!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

  16. I can't WAIT to start reading this book (I was so fortunate that I managed to get my hands on an ARC). I love anything hacker and virtual reality related, so this book should be right up my ally, especially if it's anything like the wonderful Young Elites series (and it lives up to the Ready Player One comparisons.)
