Since Wildcard is the second and final book in Marie Lu’s Warcross duology, there will be no summary for Wildcard today! Just know that this duology takes place in a not-so futuristic society where everyone is obsessed with the virtual reality game, Warcross, created by the young, intelligent & handsome- can you tell I’m drooling?- Hideo Tanaka. Warcross is a way of life,especially for teenage bounty hunter Emika Chen. When Emika accidently glitches herself into the Warcross Championships, she receives a job offer from Hideo himself to figure out a security breach within the game.
My Rating: 5/5 Stars

Like many book nerds, Marie Lu’s Warcross was easily among my favorite 2017 reads. This new series from one of my favorite authors takes place in a futuristic society (although not far off from our own…) where people dwell in Warcross, a virtual reality game created by Hideo Tanaka. When teenage bounty hunter Emika Chen not-so accidentally glitches herself into the Warcross Championships, her life turns upside down, but maybe in the right way. Hideo offers Emika a job opportunity in Tokyo to help him solve a security issue in Warcross, and Emika finds herself in a much darker Warcross than she could have ever imagined.
I’ve been extremely fortunate enough to have the opportunity to read ARCs of Warcross and its sequel, Wildcard. I unexpectedly received Warcross from Marie Lu herself in her autographing line at Book Con 2017, and I picked up Wildcard at Book Expo 2018. If I could have only walked out at Book Expo with one book, it had to be Wildcard and I am still beyond ecstatic that I grabbed a copy at an unexpected ARC drop at Penguin (otherwise I would have gladly sat in Marie’s Wildcard line for 2+ hours that Friday). I knew I wouldn’t be able to hold off on reading Wildcard for long,so soon after Book Con, I began my Warcross reread.
