Saturday Morning Update #42

Operation Read One Book a Week is off to a great start as I continue strong with Marie Lu's Warcross. I've heard a lot about this from other bloggers, especially Alexa Loves Books. It follows a hacker and bounty hunter named Emika Chen (yay for badass female Asian representation!) as she enters the world championships of the most popular virtual reality game of all time to search for a rogue hacker who has malicious intent for the games creator. I was soooo looking forward to this one, which means my expectations were naturally way too high. I honestly found all the real world stuff way more interesting than the virtual reality stuff. The Warcross game itself is kinda lame, and the real world stuff is a lot more intriguing as we see Emika bonding with her team and the game's creator. Luckily the Warcross segments are few and far between. We follow Emika in the real world more often and that part is awesome.
