We are super excited to start this little blog! We will feature books we have loved forever, new books we are reading and things we are looking forward to reading. So first up is...
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline:
Ready Player One takes place in a dystopian future where the next phase of the internet, The Oasis, is where most people spend their days in hopes to escape the bleak real world. When the creator of the Oasis, James Halladay, dies, a contest he created is launched in The Oasis for someone to find his vast fortune. Wade Watts has devoted his life to winning the contest and when he stumbles across the first gate he sets off a chain reaction that leads to him trying to survive and won not only in the Oasis but in the real world as well.
If you love the 80's, sci-fi-fi and loads of details, Ready Player One is for sure for you. I really really enjoyed this book and loved the pace and detailing. It is full to the brim with 80's and 90's pop culture references and that is the main theme of the contest. The book flowed really nicely and picked up with "the contest" excitement at the right points. It also really made you question your online persona vs. the real world you and which can have more value. The book is a really fast pace read and I would love to go back and read it again to pick up on any details I missed! Check it out below!!
