Cassie's Waiting On: 

Warcross (Warcross, #1)Warcross (Warcross #1) by Marie Lu
Publication Date: September 12, 2017


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.

Marie Lu is writing a new series?? Ummm...count me in!! I didn't even need to read the synopsis in order to know I'm going to read this book, but since I did I seriously can't wait for this book to come out! It sounds like such an epic sci-fi thriller that is going to put an interesting spin on gaming.  Can't wait!

Jocelyn's Waiting On: 

Top Ten by Katie Cotugno 
Publication Date: October 3rd, 2017 


Ryan McCullough and Gabby Hart are the unlikeliest of friends. Introverted, anxious Gabby would rather do literally anything than go to a party. Ryan is a star hockey player who can get any girl he wants—and does, frequently. But against all odds, they became not only friends, but each other’s favorite person. Now, as they face high school graduation, they can’t help but take a moment to reminisce and, in their signature tradition, make a top ten list—counting down the top ten moments of their friendship: 

10. Where to begin? Maybe the night we met.
9. Then there was our awkward phase.
8. When you were in love with me but never told me…
7. Those five months we stopped talking were the hardest of my life.
6. Through terrible fights…
5. And emotional makeups.
4. You were there for me when I got my heart broken.
3. …but at times, you were also the one breaking it.
2. Above all, you helped me make sense of the world.
1. Now, as we head off to college—how am I possibly going to live without you?

I didn't completely love the first Katie Cotugno's book I read - 99 Days. But I will say one thing about it, it was completely addicting. It was definitely a guilty-pleasure kind of read. I'm hoping this read will be just as addicting! 


  1. Ooh nice! Warcross was one of my picks last week! Can't wait to read that one, but I really want to make myself read the rest of The Young Elites first! Lol! The other pick is totally new to me! Hope you both enjoy your picks once you read them!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. *Pops in* Warcross is SO GOOD. I can't wait for it to be out in the world so everyone can enjoy it =D
