    When I die, I want Marie Lu to lower me into my grave so she can let me down one last time.Finishing this book was a personal achievement but you can’t really brag about that at dinner parties. It’s just…the kind of book you read, and it fills you with the wrong things: you use a lot of energy to get through each chapter, and in the end, you feel emptier and less comfortable than ever.I loved Warcross, and it floored me to read this book an...

    I like sweets. You all know this. Ice cream is one of my favorite sweets. I do not take my ice cream lightly. When I get ice cream, you can bet that I'm gonna savor it. Well the other day, I was at a restaurant reading Wildcard and I ordered ice cream. It arrived and then it melted. Why? Because I WAS SO IMMERSED IN THIS BOOK THAT I COULDN'T THINK ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE BECAUSE THAT'S HOW GOOD IT IS. Marie did an amazing job writing this conclusion ...

    That's the difference between the real and the virtual. Reality is where you can lose the ones you love. Reality is the place where you can feel the cracks in your heart. 2 1/2 stars. Wow, I'm really not sure how to rate this book. I think it was pretty poorly-paced with weak characters, but I also liked some of the exciting twists and turns Lu took.My experience with this book actually makes me wonder if I was in a really good mood when I read W...

    I always forget this about myself: if I don’t love the characters of a series’ opening book, I should not read the sequel to said book. Even if I loved the ending. Even if I gave it the fairly solid rating 3 1/2. That is not how I work. Okay, so here’s a basic summary of this series: a premise about video games gets somewhat underused but in a fun way. None of the characters are particularly interesting, but they’re definitely compelling ...

    THIS WAS SO FRICKEN GOOD! Such a great ending that wrapped everything up so perfectly! While I didn’t read it in one sitting like I did Warcross, I still enjoyed every second of it, and Marie Lu continued to blow my mind all through the second book :)

    I went into this one without a refresher on Warcross, but found that I didn’t quite need it. It was easy to slip back into this series and I was eager to settle in and see what happened...but I wasn’t even close to being ready.Emika is still an awesome MC. She’s strong and loyal and I loved how she is compelled to do the right thing, no matter how dangerous. Of course there are some of the same characters from Warcross, but I won’t mentio...

    Phew! I was SO nervous going into this, but Marie Lu did not disappoint. The story picks up shortly after where Warcross left off - and to be completely honest, if it's been a while since you've read Warcross, I'd recommend either rereading or refreshing yourself on the characters. I didn't, and I kept forgetting who was who in terms of the Pheonix Riders/etc (I know, I'm terrible). With that said, I had a * little * bit of a struggle in the firs...

    not to be dramatic but i love this cover with my whole damn heart---I AM CRYING I LOVE THIS BOOK THIS SERIES THIS AUTHOR SO GODDAMN MUCH. ---IT'S NOT DARKCROSS but i really do like wildcard (and i can't believe i didn't even think about that as a title?)---SO FAR AWAYYY. and apparently the original title was Darkcross? I kinda dig it. I'm, like, 400% terrible at guessing titles, but maaaaaaybe Darkworld could be a possible choice?WHATEVER, i just...

    ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest reviewWildcard is a wonderful conclusion and a new beginning. You'll never know who to trust and we're enlightened on Zero's story. I never expected it to be emotional. I'm okay with the ending but I'm in denial it's only a duet. Full review to follow. ----------------------------------------LOOK AT THAT BEAUTIFUL COVER. 💚💚💙💙I WANT IT NOW. I love the neon colors it looks like glowing in th...
